Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - Make memories for Christmas

Before the turkey leftovers were completely devoured, December splashed on the page with twinkling lights, Santa inflatables, cedar wreaths, and holiday rhythms. Whether you've completed your holiday shopping or not even started - Christmas will arrive in less than three weeks. Take time during December to make treasured memories or start new traditions. Go caroling with friends, make hot chocolate or S'mores, watch seasonal movies, bake yummy goodies to share, decorate gingerbread houses, go for a walk in the woods on a cold day, put together a Christmas puzzle, or wear new pajamas and eat homemade biscuits and chocolate ...

Kathy Bradley - Expectations knotted and tied

The laid-out field on the other side of the pond dam is unrolled like a bolt of ecru lace, knotted and tied into a landscape of bumps and nubs. That which was left to sprout and grow on its own over the spring and summer has died, stems and leaves that once stretched toward the sky now bent into creamy curves back toward the earth. The whole world is the color of toast.

John Bressler - Why the joy of Thanksgiving is so special

I don't remember when I began to realize that there was something special about the celebration we call Thanksgiving. I knew that Thanksgiving began in the Fall when the leaves were changing and there was a chill in the air. I do remember those days in West Virginia when I would walk to school and my breath looked like steam coming from a kettle.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - 'Funny' can also be tragic

Some of the most humorous things in life are also among the most tragic. Many entertainers have made slapstick comedy a staple of their acts. The tragedy is that sometimes the physical and mental effects of alcoholic beverages serve as the basis for the humor.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - A fond farewell to the Trellis Garden Inn

It certainly isn't uncommon to see a business close its doors these days, and it isn't something that I enjoy reporting, but a few people have contacted the Herald saddened by the closing of the Trellis Garden Inn in downtown Statesboro.

Kathy Bradley - Where is thy sting

One by one - purse, briefcase, gym bag - I toss into the car the tangible burdens with which I begin each day. I pause just long enough to watch wide brown sycamore leaves, curled like arthritic hands, scuttle nervously across the yard in response to an asthmatic breeze. Somewhere down the road a diesel engine grinds up a hill and its sound vibrates over empty fields and against my cheeks. It is dawn. It is autumn. It is still.

John Bressler - I am a believer in providence

Very recently, I mentioned goal setting and how important it is to have a direction and a plan for life. This does not mean that every hope is fulfilled and every expectation met. Too many folks would rather believe that life is a crap shoot - the throwing of dice - and that means to rely on the slim possibility that luck will slap them on the head when it's their turn. If that were the case, then preparation for the day is to always have a regimented order when it comes to getting dressed, what must be worn, the specific ...

Bulloch Genealogy with Roger Allen - Rawls settle in Bulloch and Screven

The family name Rawls comes from the "Olde German" name 'Rolf.' This in turn comes from the Viking clan Hrolfr," which translates roughly to '"Fame-Wolf." The Rawls name didn't show up in England until the 13th Century.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Mr. McMillan: 50 years at Howard Lumber

Record unemployment numbers are clearly frightening. They are frightening for those that are looking for a job, and those who are concerned about their job security in a sputtering economy.

John Bressler - See it! Believe it! Achieve it!

Because we have been working on goal setting and thinking about the future and what skills can be applied to give us a fighting chance, it triggered a memory of a particular passage of scripture that can be very controversial: Philippians 2:12, "Work out your salvation with fear and trembling..." Are you telling me that I have to somehow save myself? I don't think so."

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Nighttime bed-wetting may sort itself out

Q: Using your advice, I successfully toilet-trained my daughter by age 16 months. It is now three months later and we are still using diapers at naps and nighttime. At her nap, which lasts several hours, she fully soaks her diaper. At night, she is taking off her diaper prior to falling asleep, wetting the bed after she goes to sleep, and then crying for us when she wakes up in a pool of pee.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Called to be in, not of, the world

Does God want his children involved in the activities of our world? And if so, just what should that entail? This is a question that ought to be of concern to every Christian.

Take science seriously, but believe

At times, I enjoy the computer because there is so much information accessible at the touch of a button. I remember asking a student to type in the word cuneiform to see what she could find. She said, "It seems to be some kind of language, Mesopotamian or something, printed on a clay tablet. So what's the big deal?"

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child's anxiety may be caused by sudden changes

Q: Since our daughter - now 2 years old - was born, we have lived with my parents. Being the first and only grandchild, she has been the center of attention. Several months ago, our son was born and we moved into our own home. Almost immediately, our daughter began pulling her hair out, sometimes in handfuls. Doctors have said she does it for attention and we should just ignore it. That's what we've done but it has not stopped. It's now gotten so bad that I've cut her hair because the side she pulls has gotten so ...

Kathy Bradley - Imagine that!

I am lying on my back. The darkness outside the window has a green tinge to it, as though the night has mildewed. If there is a moon or any stars, they are blocked by the limp branches of the mimosa trees and the shed in the backyard - neither of which I can see, both of which I know are there. Also, there is the clothesline where my mother hangs the wet sheets and towels that flap and flap and flap and come back inside dry.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Children may pick up sassiness from television shows

Q: The "sassiness" that I have heard so much about from my friends started a few months ago with my 5-year-old daughter. She will say things to me that I actually find myself tongue-tied on how or what to say to correct her. Sometimes, she apologizes, which tells me she knows she's talking disrespectfully to me. What do you think about 10 minutes of timeout for this sort of thing?

God is in control of our lives

I was reading a document recently about a man whose wife committed suicide. From all that he said, she was lovely, talented, intelligent and extraordinary in so many ways, but had a well-diagnosed illness that the best counseling couldn't cure.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Child should outgrow head-banging

Q: When he throws a tantrum, which happens several times a day, my 20-month-old often gets down on the floor and starts banging his head. Worried that he may hurt himself, I pick him up and comfort him. I know that reinforces head-banging, but I don't know what else to do. Making matters worse, a school counselor friend of mine tells me that head-banging is something lots of autistic kids do. I'm at a loss.

Kathy Bradley - Why did it have to be snakes?

The snake was 5 feet long - exactly 5 feet long. I know this because I measured the skin he left in the hosta bed right outside my back door; the skin he left in a soft pile, like dirty clothes he expected his mother to pick up and toss in the laundry; the skin I picked up with a broom handle and stretched across the cool concrete carport, careful not to touch it, because, well, you just never know.
