  • Come to the party … a pool party to celebrate whatever needs to be celebrated. Come and be with us. Celebrate the “us-ness” we are before it’s too late to remember it or too soon forgotten. Pray for sunshine to add a glow to our presence. Pray for a hold-back on rain which might evoke tears. Pray in thanksgiving for pools, parties, and people to love.

  • That annoying buzzing in your ear? I hate it. It’s the sound of the deadliest animal on the planet: the mosquito. I hate them, too.

    To most Americans, it’s merely a nuisance; to about two million people worldwide and untold millions of dogs, cats and other animals, that sound can be a harbinger of disease and death. We’re not talking about the death of a few 1800s Amazonian explorers; we’re talking nearly 440 million deaths worldwide each year. All by a critter not much bigger than a grain of rice.

  • It’s the time of year when local clubs, organizations and church groups are getting back together for the year. Many of these groups will be planning food functions. These could be fundraising dinners, bake sales or potluck lunches for members. Food events do present food safety risks. There have been multiple outbreaks and hundreds of illnesses linked to community-based meal events in the past decade.

    Live Life Fully

    Do you often find yourself bending over backwards for others in your life?

    You try your best to accommodate family members, coworkers, friends, etc. Yet, it never seems to be your turn.

    You think you’re taking “the high road,” although it doesn’t get you where you need to go. Maybe it’s time to recalculate your internal GPS.

    I don’t like going against my core instincts. None of us do.

  • Just when I think I’ve run out of April stories, another episode arrives to fill my spirit and lift my heart. I feel like those authors whose books entrance folks with tales of individuals who become as familiar as family members through the details of their lives told in stories of joy and sorrow.

  • Pastor Stephen Nobles and the Sunshine Sisters of New Britton Baptist Church in Ash celebrate the 84th birthday of Clyde Ramon Babson, who was born Aug. 22, 1934.

  • September is National Family Meals Month, a national event designed to show the importance of family meals. One of the goals of this celebration is to challenge families to share one more meal at home each week.
