A LIFE WELL LIVED! Margaret Sue Anderson Cooper was born July 19, 1924 in Dallas and passed away peacefully in Dallas, October 27, 2016. Sue was the first daughter born to Leonard R. and Naomi P. Anderson of Venus and later Wills Point, Texas. It’s hard to sum up 92 years into several paragraphs, but for a former English Teacher, we will give it a try and hope that we don’t have any grammatical errors since Sue is no longer able to proof read our work. Sue grew up as a child of the depression era and worked...Read More
King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream that greatly troubled him. But, when he awoke he could not remember the dream, so he called his wisemen to tell him the dream and its interpretation. They told him that no wiseman on the earth could tell him his dream, but if he would tell them the dream they would interpret it for him. But, he could not remember the dream. He became very angry and ordered all the wisemen of Babylon killed! A servant went to Daniel and t0ld him this dilemma. Daniel requested more time from the king. He and his three friends went to their God, the God of Israel (and our God) in prayer for deliverance. God answered and gave Daniel the king’s dream. Daniel told the king that he saw a great statue. The head of the statue was made of fine gold. The breast and arms were made of silver. The belly and thighs were made of bronze, the legs were made of iron, and the feet were made of part clay and iron. A great stone cut out without hands struck the statue on the feet. The entire statue collapsed and the wind blew it away. Then the same stone became a great mountain and filled the whole earth. Daniel told the king that he was the head of gold and there would arise other kingdoms...Read More
This is part two of the 21 rules for a good life. In part one I listed the first ten rules. Now I’ll finish the list. 11. Never use the phrase: “In my time.” Your time is now. As long as you’re alive, you are part of this time. You have been younger, but you are still you now, having fun and enjoying life. 12. Some people embrace their golden years, while others become bitter and surly. Life is too short to waste your days in the latter mode. Spend your time with positive, cheerful people, it’ll rub off on you and your days will seem that much better. Spending your time with bitter people will make you older and harder to be around. 13. Do not surrender to the temptation of living with your children or grandchildren (if you have a financial choice, that is). Sure, being surrounded by family sounds great, but we all need our privacy. They need theirs and you need yours. If you’ve lost your partner (our deepest condolences), then find a person to move in with you and help out only if you feel you really need the help or do not want to live alone. 14. Don’t abandon your hobbies. If you don’t have any, make new ones. You can travel, hike, cook, read, and dance. You can adopt a cat or a...Read More
