Everything

On 1/14 Carol Cool wrote: hapter 17 of Everything:What You Give and What You Gain to Become Like Jesus, by Mary DeMuth, is worth the price of the book. (I did receive my copy free as part of BookSneeze, Thomas Nelson’s blogging program, but, I’m telling you, this one is worth paying for.) The chapter, entitled “Become Irresistible,” ...

Outlive Your Life

On 9/10 Carol Cool wrote: You know I consider myself ordinary, average, and that's why I named my blog I'm No Superstar as I explained in a post a few weeks ago. But I do believe we ordinary people (and there are a lot of us) can make an extraordinary difference in our world. I've been trying to get the message out through ... Live Life to the Max

The Butterfly Effect

The Butterfly Effect

On 9/10 Carol Cool wrote: You've probably heard of the butterfly effect. No, not the Ashton Kutcher movie; the idea that a butterfly flapping its wings in South America affects the weather in New York City. It has something to do with Chaos Theory, which might be a good descriptor of my life if it was instead called Chaos Reality. ... Are You a Butterfly?

What's Age Got To Do With It?

On 4/14 Carol Cool wrote: Les turned 52 a short time ago. I always like when he has a birthday because for two and a half months I can say he is a year older than I am. It's funny, though, that I often find myself identifying my age as the same as his once his birthday is past. It seems his birthday makes me think about how ... In My Fifty-Third Year

The Faith of Barack Obama

The Faith of Barack Obama

On 1/12 Carol Cool wrote: It was two days after the election when I saw the post on a Facebook site, screaming in all caps. "I AM CERTAIN NOW WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF THE TRIBULATION." It didn't mention Obama's historic election win, but it didn't have to. I knew the conservative writer; I was pretty confident I knew what was considered ... Obama-ination
