DEAR REV. GRAHAM: My husband and I want to serve God, but we're still tied down with family responsibilities and jobs. Maybe we can volunteer for some kind of mission work once our children are grown or we retire.

To quote from "Be Thankful for What You Got," the 1974 R&B hit by William DeVaughn, I do not drive a great big Cadillac ... gangsta whitewalls, TV antennas in the back.

One of the worst things a critic can be is a curmudgeon, which is almost always an affected pose designed to pre-empt consideration. So I try to leave myself open to fresh avenues of delight, even when they appear in unlikely forms. Such as a bearded young man brandishing a whiskey bottle in the middle of a Manhattan liquor store.

DEAR CAROLYN: My nephew's wedding is fast approaching. We received invitations, but each of my four adult daughters, ranging 21 to 30, were invited with no guests. They are not married. When they questioned their cousin, he replied that he and his finance had to invite 250 guests and have to cut somewhere, so unless you are engaged you cannot bring a guest. Also, if they get a lot of "no" replies they will revisit the idea of allowing guests.

Happy birthday. You're not doing things for yourself this year; you're thinking about future generations and the world at large. This big-picture perspective allows you to move decisively and quickly. You'll finish a huge project next month and go into 2016 with an inspiring goal, which you'll reach in March.
