  • Sister's nuptials lead to yearning for big wedding one day

    My older sister is getting married next month. This will be her second wedding since I’ve been single. For those who like to keep score, it’s 2-1, with her in the lead.
    Plus, my “wedding” when I got married at the age of 18 didn’t really count. It wasn’t a big, fancy wedding, to say the least. It was just the two of us, at home, in our jeans, and we had to go knock on the next door neighbors’ door and ask them to be our witnesses.

  • Chasing addictions is running from God

    The late comedienne Gilda Radner used to say, “It’s always something.”
    In this life, it’s always something. There’s always something that’s your Achilles’ heel, your kryptonite, your downfall, your master. There’s always something that holds power over you, making you bow down to it, obey it. There’s always something that you start out loving and often end up hating because it eventually crushes you.
    But if you’re fortunate, it brings you to Jesus.

    The Allen Pike bridge is closed due to structural concerns.
    The bridge was closed down Monday morning, and Harrison County Judge-Executive Alex Barnett said just after 2:30 p.m. Monday that there is no time line yet of when the bridge might be re-opened.
