The heart of Christmas is priceless

When I was about eight years old, I took great pride in decorating my bedroom for Christmas. We lived in a two-story home in the quaint community of Blythe, Georgia - population 708 - and my room was upstairs to the right and down the hallway. It had two windows that looked out onto the street, a small closet, a little white ceiling fan and pink carpet. I had a radio and cassette player that sat on my window seat. The seat was crafted by my late Great Uncle J.E., who was a cabinet maker. In early December, I would clean ...

Top 10 best marriage tips I ever received

Marriage tips come in all shapes and sizes, from the desperately needed to the unasked for. A lot of times we know what we should do, but prefer to do what we "want" to do. In other words, we cave into our prodding anger or false pride. Or we act in ways we know won't bring a good result, but we go for it anyway. It's a lot like banging the TV on its side because the WIFI isn't working. Really? Does that ever work? It is always better to figure things out before reacting.
