“For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,” declares the Lord, “and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.” (Jeremiah 29:11-14.)

Diabetes is a lifelong condition that is increasing rapidly. There are approximately 382 million people worldwide who have diabetes.
This year, instead of writing a nostalgic memory from my childhood, I chose to write this one from my adulthood in the early 80’s.
The publicized mishaps — they shouldn’t be called scandals — in recent years by Air Force and Navy personnel in charge of nuclear weapons give the White House and Congress a chance to rethink the U.S. deterrence mission before returning airmen to those buried missile silos or sending sailors off on new strategic submarine patrols.
Nov. 1, the Arkansas Razorbacks played the No. 1 team in the nation – Mississippi State and lost in a true nail-biter at the last moment.
