The Washingtons (ep.13)

Christmas Eve arrived as suddenly as did the Christmas season.  The Washingtons had spent substantial amounts of money in an effort to buy good cheer for themselves and for Liberty, and the Harhashes, though they spent very little on decorations or gifts, were feeling the cheer of their fellowship with God and Douglass' family and...

The Washingtons (ep.5)

One of the, if not the, greatest days of any of the Washingtons' lives was the day the adoption was finalized. It was two days after Easter. The air was still cool in the mornings but the warmth of the sun was beginning to show up in the afternoons. The trees and the grasses were... Continue Reading →

The Washingtons (ep.4)

Adopted. Some people ignorantly attach a stigma to that word. Unity doesn't though. She was born at an early age to her natural mom and mom's boyfriend at the time. One August day when she was around 5 years old, her mom dropped her off in the morning at the Playworld to be picked up... Continue Reading →

The Washingtons (ep.3)

Let's go ahead and put a goldfish and a guppy in a tank on the bar between the kitchen and dining room. One kid is in dance and... Continue Reading →

When I last left this keyboard, I was suggesting that a lot of Christians seem to be blaming everyone but themselves for perceived problems with religious liberty in the U.S. and that maybe that should be re-examined....

not forced in the U.S.

(This is #7 in a series. Find 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 by clicking on the numbers.) After the Declaration came the Constitution, and again, all they wrote in to it was "freedom of religion." No specific religion, faith, creed, or doctrine. As a matter of fact, they went back and forth on how... Continue Reading →
