My wife died earlier this year, and although I'll be with my children and grandchildren on Thanksgiving, it won't be the same. How can I explain this to them?

It seems like every time our family gets together for a reunion we end up arguing about politics - sometimes pretty viciously. We'll be having a family picnic on the Fourth of July, and already I'm dreading it. How can we get out of this rut?

The other day, a friend asked me how many of my New Year's resolutions I'd managed to keep, and I had to admit that I'd forgotten all about them. He admitted that this had been his experience, as well. Why do we have so much trouble changing our behavior?
We want to do what is right - but we don't have the moral and spiritual strength to do it. ...
Did Jesus really rise from the dead on that first Easter? How was it possible? Or is the Easter story only a nice myth - just a symbol of the hope we all have for life after death, as one friend of mine says?
