Just as in our physical life, when we fall down, it’s because we lose our balance.
It’s not our sense of equilibrium that is lost – it may still be intact – but our physical bodies, the thing we use to communicate with the external world, has taken a spill.
It’s important to get back up, and to continue toward a path that leads to understanding.
Remember: It’s important to think about how you think.
Gaining a Healthy View of Conflict
By Tim and Joy Downs
The very presence of conflict in marriage is a source of embarrassment and even shame for Christian people.
Here are three revolutionary ideas – thoroughly Biblical ideas – that can change the way you look at conflict in marriage.

Does history repeat itself?
Before this article was published, I was engaged in conversation with a friend on a subject wholly unrelated to this topic. As I listened to him he remarked, “Heck, when you join the Army, if your teeth need fixing, they’ll fix ‘em. If you need glasses, they’ll put glasses on you. If you need any kind of healthcare, they’ll fix you up. The reason the Army provides healthcare is because they understand they’ll get a better quality soldier.“
Interestingly, neither my friend nor his family have a military background.
By extension, I wonder… how much more productive could the American worker be if they didn’t have to be concerned about their and their family’s health and healthcare? And then, if we completely ignore “lifestyle” related health issues. i.e., those associated with smoking or obesity, there are other chronic conditions, including heart disease, hypertension, COPD, etc., that significantly adversely affect the lives of families.

The ink was barely dry on the PPACA when the first of many lawsuits to block the mandated health insurance provisions of the law was filed in a Florida District Court.
The pleadings, in part, read -
“The Constitution nowhere authorizes the United States to mandate, either directly or under threat of penalty, that all citizens and legal residents have qualifying health care coverage.”

It turns out, the Founding Fathers would beg to disagree.

Periodically, I receive communication from the Madison County Coalition for Healthy Marriages.
In those various email messages numerous topics are discussed, all designed with the purpose of strengthening traditional marriage between a man and a woman.
And though I am not presently married, nor in a romantic relationship, I find those messages not only uplifting and encouraging, but with a common sense approach, as well.
The following message is another one of those common sense approaches. It’s about the sexual aspect of the marriage relationship.
In many marriages, …Continue…

Miracles happen daily.
They just don’t get much press.
“… a small community of Jesuit Fathers living in a presbytery near the parish church, which was situated less than a mile away from detonation point, well within the radius of total devastation. And all eight members of this community escaped virtually unscathed from the effects of the bomb. Their presbytery …Continue…
