With God All Things Are Possible

When was the last time you were just barely holding on to hope?  In the darkest of circumstances, hope is what we cling to - that glimmer that there's light at the end of the tunnel.  Our hearts are breaking for the people of Haiti who are just barely clinging to hope right now.  When Kevin and I visited this impoverished country years ago, we thought things couldn't get any worse. ...

Summer Filled Memories

Aren’t old photo’s great? We have albums and boxes of them in storage at our house and I can spend hours looking at all of them. Those pictures bring back such great memories of important dates, holidays and family vacations. In some of our beach vacation pictures there are shots of me carrying all the stuff our family of 6 needed for a day at the beach. I looked like a pack-mule! I’m piled up ...

Faith and NASCAR

Our faith and NASCAR – ok, this may seem like a stretch, but hang with me here a minute.  There really is a point to this.  I have been a race fan, specifically NASCAR, since I was a little girl.  My daddy raised me right – he raised me on NASCAR!  So of course I was watching the latest Atlanta Motor Speedway Race when an interesting fact emerged.  Star driver, Brad Keselowski and his wife, had ...

Spoiler Alert

You may or may not have heard about it, but a little known movie called “Avengers: End Game” came out recently. I don’t know that I ever remember a movie generating so many “DON’T SPOIL IT FOR ME” messages on social media and in every day conversation. Yes, I said it myself…threatening to physically harm anyone who ruined it for me. Thankfully, I was able to see it before hearing or seeing any spoilers. And ...

Milk and Donuts

Have you ever taken a second to really look at how the dairy aisle has changed? Oat, plant based, coconut, almond, and soy milk all sit competitively near skim, whole, and chocolate cartons. This is a lactose brawl waiting to happen, may the best coupon win. Most of these options are lost on me, I’ve never been a fan of milk, dating back to childhood. Usually I just grab a big ...

Identity

It seems like 2019 has started with a theme: Identity. From church sermons to songs we are playing, our identity and where we get our identity keeps coming up. Sometimes our identity gets confused with what we do. I’m a teacher, a cook, a business owner, an administrative assistant, a doctor, a radio personality – insert your job here – but that’s not really who we are. How do I know ...

Encouragement

Do you love encouraging sayings? I do too! I’m a champ at reposting them on social media hoping to encourage someone else! Some of my favorites… “If it is to be, it is up to me”! “Winners get up one more time than they get knocked down”! “Impossible or I’m Possible?” These little shots of positivity can really pick you up! They give you that little ray of hope when things seem at their ...

Wish

I was walking through the lobby of The Fish and heard someone sobbing, a woman leaning over our receptionist’s desk was reading a Christmas Wish that her friend submitted for her. The wish asked for the necessary funds to adopt a little girl she had been fostering for years. This woman thought she was coming for a possible job interview, instead her life changed in a different way, thanks to ...

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

I have always loved Christmas music. There’s just something about those joyful songs that can bring out the holiday cheer in me. As a teen, I remember my buddy and I would start listening to Christmas music as early as July some years!  As I got into radio and began playing Christmas music 24/7, my enthusiasm waned some – but it still holds a special place in my heart.  Especially ...

It’s A Wonderful Life

My absolute favorite Christmas Movie is the Frank Capra classic, It’s A Wonderful Life.  It may be my favorite anytime movie, too, why? There is a weird duality with Christmas, overwhelming joy and family time, but for some it is the most depressing time of the year.  It was for George Bailey.  Through trials of life and circumstance, he thought it would have been better if he had never been born.  ...
