What’s so Peasy about Easy?
3/10/2021 3:28:50 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   I am nowhere to be found when it comes to crafts, remodeling, and just plain fixer-uppers. My carpentry skills are nowhere to be found even though I've looked for a long time. If I try to fix something, I make it worse than it was. Fixing is not my strong suit. On the other side of the parsonage, we have a different scenario. If the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage cannot fix something, it cannot be broken. No matter what it is, it doesn't take her long to figure out how to fix it. Often she will spend time on the computer...

Knock, knock; someone’s in trouble
3/3/2021 1:35:08 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   For some reason, the last several weeks we have been getting many visitors at our door. I’m not sure if this is a general trend or if it is just our door. Some of them have been salesmen, religious people, scam artists, and a host of other people. They only had one goal in mind, and that was to get our money. I guess I have not realized how wealthy I am. Everybody wants my money. If they only knew how little money I had, they would be running away from our house. I can’t even get my money because I’m not sure where it...

If it was up to me
2/18/2021 11:27:25 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   THE PARSONAGE—Fifty years ago, I was a teenager. Boy, do I miss those Days of Yore. It's not that I would like to relive them, but I was a much different person back then. As a teenager, I knew everything, and all you had to do was ask me. Even if you didn't ask me, I still would tell you what was on my mind. I wished I knew everything today because people are asking me questions I can’t even answer. A teenager is someone between being a baby and being an adult. I sure don't want to be a baby, and I've had misgivings...

A divided house makes a happy home
2/10/2021 2:41:16 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   Never has our world been more divided than today. Politics, religion, sports and on and on I could go. For the most part, so many people think being divided is a negative thing. And for many people it is. However, after being married to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage for almost 50 years, I have discovered that a divided house can be a very happy house. It just depends on how you are divided and what divides you. That makes all the difference in the house. Being married as long as I have been does not make me an expert in this area. I am...
