  • Wild ride comes to an end

    “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” - Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NIV)
    Thank You!

    The past three months have been a learning experience for me. There have been a few tears here and there, but luckily I’ve had our readers by my side to help guide and encourage me.

  • If Heaven has a front porch ...

    The day I graduated from high school, my grandfather was sick. There was debate as to whether or not my grandparents would be able to attend this momentous occasion in a young person’s life.
    But I knew “BeBoss,” as his grandchildren affectionately called him, and I knew he would be there.
    “I knowed ol’ P.Q. when she didn’t have a louse on her,” he would say of his youngest grandchild.
