be on television. She’s in her 80s and her hands look it. They have scrubbed floors, washed dishes, hung out clothes, cooked a million meals, and bandaged wounds. Hers are a mother’s hands.
I’ve held her hands in mine dozens of times. They are beautiful. They have been places.
Take time this weekend to hold your mother’s hands; or at least to hold them in your heart. God only knows what they’ve been through for

Religion takes high-tech video twist
By STEVE BRUNSMAN Th* Houston Post
HOUSTON — Moses now stands with Nintendo’s Mario and Luigi as a video game hero.
Wisdom Tree Inc., a California-based software company, reports strong demand for its first Biblc-based video game, Bible Adventures, which is compatible with Nintendo systems. The game has been marketed
as a Christian alternative to the violence, demons and sorcerers found in other video games.
“A lot of kids arc at a dead end with what they get from Nintendo and from television. They are bombarded with negative images,” said Wisdom Tree's Darrvl Beamon.
In Houston, religious store clerks said Bible Adventures has sold well since its release four months ago.
About 50,000 games have been sold nationwide, said Beamon, and monthly sales of 30,000 arc predicted.
“It sells fast. We’re out and waiting for a new shipment,” said John Foust of Theophilus Bible Store
Bible Adventures is a Super Mario Bros.-style game with three scenarios — Noah’s Ark, David Meets Goliath and Save Baby Moses. The game’s age range is 6 to adults.
Bible Bowl contestants from the New Braunfels Church of Christ placed high in recent competition at Harding University in Searcy, Ark.
The high school team placed first in the experienced division. Members are Dean Smith, Jeff Hammond, Rishanne Weidner and David Compton. Each placed in the top 20 individually.
The junior high team placed second in the experienced category. Members are Lisha Weidner, Jennifer McCarty, Christina McCarty and Brooke Smith.
Matthew Rector and Maria Gayton, also of New Braunfels, were on a junior high team that placed fifth. Faith Freiling of New Braunfels was on a team made up of of contestants from other congregations that placed tenth. Coaches of the local team and Barbara Rector and Susan Smith.

A close friend and I ate lunch together today and somehow got off on Janis Ian’s melancholy hit, At Seventeen Do you remember how it begins?
“I learned the truth at seventeen, that love was meant for beauty queens...”
You either loved the song or hated it. I still haven’t met a cheerleader who liked it.
Sometimes I resent the way our culture hypes beauty. Remember that commercial that used to run on television where a mother and daughter would show their hands on camera and we are supposed to (not) tell the difference? Unbelievable! The crazy thing was I couldn’t tell the difference. That’s tragic.
Gladys Martin’s hands will never
