Holiday rhythms: Pa rum pa pum pum

December 22, 2014

It was a cold winter day as my fiancé and I braved the dismal weather and faced the snow on a day road trip through the Rocky Mountains. It was a few weeks before Christmas, and we were dressed head to toe in Christmas greens and reds. As we drove through the beautiful snow covered canyon, we dreamed about how we would spend our Christmas days together once we were married.

Christmas is a time for giving

My apologies to Dr. Dick Blount, who will be upset at the attention.
I have known Dick, a retired opthalmologist, for many years as an elder in our church and a great conversationalist.
Only last year did a member of our church tell me about his Christmas tradition. It bears repeating and, more importantly, it bears imitating, for his attitude represents the essence of the Christmas spirit.

Perry: 2016’s SEC primary

December 17, 2014

Mississippi got a taste of the political experience Iowa and New Hampshire enjoy every presidential election cycle when in 2012, with the Republican nomination still in contention, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich all campaigned in state, making multiple stops and events seeking to win a portion of the Magnolia State delegates.

Progressives want to talk about values

December 16, 2014

Democrats in the Senate, led by Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), departed Washington in a tantrum, breaking political windows, burning bridges, and creating general havoc for the media circus. Democrats lost their 8-year tenure of supremacy in the ‘deliberative’ house of congress, and decided not to go quietly into any good night.

It’s true that opposites attract

What does a good marriage look like? I was fortunate to witness to one of the most incredible marriages on earth. Incredible, not just because it was a good marriage, but that they ever got together.

Women should embrace their differences

It is probably too soon to declare a feminist reformation, but a few signs here and there give one hope.
Hold it, sirs, don’t stop reading yet. I realize that seeing the F-word in the first paragraph is like discovering that your bride is wearing pantyhose, but bear with me.

Rand Paul’s Republican heterodoxy

December 10, 2014

U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky addressed the Mississippi Republican Party Victory Lunch at the Old Capitol Inn in Jackson on Monday. The first-term senator is considered a Republican hopeful for President in 2016 and appeals to the GOP’s libertarian wing.

National conversation should be about ‘respect’

December 9, 2014

Do we really need more conversations about race in America? The progressive mainstream media, politicians, and activists have been fanning the flames of race since August when a police officer killed a man who had just strong-armed robbed a local store and who refused to get out of the middle of the street when confronted by the officer inside his patrol car.

WWF method in marriage

December 8, 2014

The setting was serene! The sky was a brilliant blue, the mountains of Colorado towered out over the plains, and the light air coming off the Rocky Mountains was brisk and comfortable as my wife and I set out on our hike. We had only been married for about six months, and as you can imagine, we were most certainly “in love.”
Everything was perfect!
