I haven’t had to iron for absolute ages, but it became necessary the other day. It was such a momentous event that I take note of it. Most everything we own now is permanent press, wrinkle free, or boasts my favorite label, “dry clean only.” Occasionally though, some article of clothing or h…

My editor sent me an email on this author months ago. With a brand-new year and decade, Jondalyn Holmes’ book, “A New Birthing,” published through GWW Publishing Co. (now, Relentless Publishing), is the right topic to cover.

“Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness.; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture” Psalm 100:1-3.

Sister Sophia, the dean of women at my college, always took a loose leaf notebook with her to Midnight Mass. She’d arrive early and began slowly paging through the volume. Every year the book got thicker. Turns out it was her Bless You List. She had logged the names of every student she’d ta…

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” Luke 2:11

“No duty is more urgent than the return of thanks.” It is unclear to whom credit goes for this quote: sometimes to St. Ambrose of the 4th century; sometimes to James Allen of the 19th century. It is clear, however, in the winter of 2019 that “thanks” is intended for those who voted for the r…

I recall meeting Michael Kaltofen a few months ago, not long after the new local independent bookstore, Main Street Reads, opened as he was playing guitar there during a Third Thursday evening. In fact, he will be there 5-8 p.m. on Dec 19.

There are certain things mothers don’t like to remember. My maternal goofs make my skin crawl. There are things I manage to stuff into the very bottom of my memories, hopefully never to bubble up again. Unfortunately the basic premise of motherhood is that one has children. Children don’t fo…

It was the summer of 1991 in my hometown of Wheeling, West Virginia. My late mother Lemonia and I were leaving the Capitol Music Hall where we had just seen Willie Nelson in concert. As we made our way through a large mass of fans gathered outside of the theatre where the Nelson tour bus was…

My wife and I were raised with dogs and when Cheryl and I started our new life together, it did not take long for us to bring home our first fur babies, (a Scottish Terrier and a Wire Hair Terrier) and over the years we’ve had many other wonderful companions. James Cromwell is quoted as sayi…
