Stop the Madness!

I am sick and tired of politicians making decisions based on their own desires, position, and posturing for their next election.  What happened to representing the people who elected them and doing what is right for the country? We are in a really bad fix in this nation, and the answer is not more spending!

What would our Founders say?

What would our Founders say?

Our nation just celebrated the 235th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.  Many people had fireworks and cook-outs, but how many people really celebrated the true meaning of our freedom? Have, we as American citizens, become so complacent about our freedom and the great cost to our founding fathers that we take our freedom for

America’s Heroes!

America’s Heroes!

Today I had the wonderful privilege of volunteering with the USO at the Atlanta airport.  This is the second time I have helped, and each time I have been overwhelmed with emotion.

Lessons Learned!

Lessons Learned!

I traded my heels and pearls in this past week for gym shorts and t shirts. I went to Savannah to keep my 19 month old twin nephews.  My sister in-law went to Camp Greystone as she has done almost every summer of her life since she was six. She now goes as a Camp

A Decade of God’s faithfulness!

Ginger Howard Selections celebrated our ten year anniversary this week-end, and I am in awe of the faithfulness of God.  I started this shop on a wing and a prayer, and I had no idea what I was getting into.  I started in a recession and then September 11th happened.  We have had several recessions

I attended an all day conference hosted at our church Saturday  featuring Kay Arthur, founder of Precept Ministries International. She has been writing and teaching inductive Bible Studies for forty years.  She is now seventy- seven years old, and says she is not planning on retiring, because the Bible says there is no retirement in

Who will lead?

I attended CPAC, Conservative Policy Action Conference last week in DC. It was the largest attendance ever with 11,000 people. The conference was three packed full days of many speakers ranging from foreign policy to our budget crisis.  Many of the possible 2012 Presidential contenders were there testing the waters. I absolutely loved it and

The art of dressing.

The art of dressing.

I attended a four o’clock wedding today and was truly bewildered by the attire of the women.  There is an art to dressing and unfortunately many ladies have forgotten how or have never learned.  What happened to the days of ladies dressing up or being appropriately dressed?   Etiquette books were written for these occasions,
