Rose Petals: Annie moves to town #2
March 3, 2014
A few days later, Annie got a call from Leroy, the guy she had met at the community dance. They visited a while on the phone; then he asked her out. She got permission from her mother, and they agreed on the following Saturday.  (More)

The Life You Could Grow to Love!
November 27, 2013
As I sat with my Mary Kay friends in the famous Las Brisas Restaurant of Laguna Beach, California, with a window view of the blue Pacific, a lush rose garden leading up to a charming gazebo and then sloping down the hillside, palm trees jutting out over the cliff's edge to the north, Catalina Island lying in the distance, white-capped waves washing onto the sandy shores of the inlet, feasting on a meal of succulent fresh halibut and culminated with decadent chocolate-dipped strawberries, I observed, "You know, I could get accustomed to this lifestyle." Then, I realized, I HAVE grown accustomed to this lifestyle!  (More)
Rose Petals: Literature Can Be of Value in Real Life!
October 28, 2013
“When will I ever use this in real life?” Such is the common query of students who resist the study of algebra, chemistry, Beowulf, Macbeth, etc. As a former high school English teacher, it was a challenge, (one I gladly accepted), to motivate and inspire students to embrace great literary works. And it was likewise very satisfying when those complaining students found that they could, in fact, find value and enjoyment in those great pieces. Knowledge for its intrinsic worth is a hard sell, but there is a recently published article, based on serious, controlled research, that supports the theory that classical literature can be of value in real life.  (More)
Rose Petals: Brief Encounters

July 10, 2013
It is said that we experience brief encounters every day, encounters that change us in ways we most often never realize. It may be a fleeting eye contact; a casual greeting; a friendly smile; an offhand comment; an unpleasant scowl. We should be respectful of what may be happening in others’ lives. We should consider how we can positively affect someone with whom we’ve had a brief encounter, or how we will be affected by it. But let me backtrack.  (More)
Rose Petals: God Answers Prayers

May 2, 2013
Today is National Day of Prayer, so I thought it was fitting to reflect on prayers answered. Here is one that gave me goose-bumps. It was several years ago when my husband and I were trying to sell our home place in order to build on another piece of property we had had the opportunity to purchase. (Those circumstances constitute another answered prayer.) But we had not received any offers after a year on the market. So we remodeled the house with the intention of making it more appealing to a potential buyer; if not, more appealing for us to continue to live in. It was March. I distinctly recall that in my devotional and prayers one morning, I told the Lord that if it wasn’t His will for us to sell, then I was okay with that.  (More)
Rose Petals: The Dust Bowl of the Thirties Revisited
April 4, 2013
There is a young mother I want to tell you about who has learned how to make water stretch. It all began about a year ago, when the drought really reared its ugly head. Since early in the summer, her husband has been traveling 22 miles each way to the local town and back, hauling water he purchases from the city.  (More)
Rose Petals: Making a Difference
March 19, 2013
There is a quote by some anonymous writer that reads like this: “Who we are and what we become is determined by those who love us.” There is so much truth to that statement; but I must add these lines: “…and by what we do with that love….” Teachers often have students who are in dire need, and sometimes, we have the opportunity to help those students. Here’s a glimpse of one such student who did something with the help he was offered.  (More)
Rose Petals: My Book
January 22, 2013
As a former high school English teacher, I have always loved working with teens, and in my deep concern about the growing crisis of teen pregnancies and promiscuity, I have written a book and do presentations to middle and high school youth in schools and churches on the subject of teen dating and abstinence.  (More)

How Article Search Works

The Article search engine looks for an exact match on any word(s) in the headline or the article body.

You can choose to search only articles in a specific category (e.g., Business) or All News & Blogs.

For example, if you type in the word Floresville, the search results will include Floresville City Council Agenda, Floresville City Council Special Meeting, and any other articles that have the word Floresville in either the headline or the article body.

If you search for multiple words, let’s say the words Floresville and 775, the search results will list any articles that include both Floresville AND 775 somewhere in the headline or the article body.
