It all started in February of 1981 when I wrote down a scripture promise I found in Deuteronomy 6:10-11.

I owned an Advertising company in Houston, Texas for about 20 years when I met John. We married in March of 1981, and lived there working together for about a year. I thought everything was going well until the morning he walked up to me in the kitchen and said, “I am moving back to South Carolina, you can come with me or stay here. Either way, I’m leaving.” I was shocked. It was the first I had Read the rest

I didn’t know there were radio versions of songs and concert versions of songs. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. For those of you who share my ignorance, the radio version is clean. The concert version is not.

I didn’t understand this whole concept of “versions of songs,” so when my daughter asked to go to the Post Malone concert, I said, “Sure.” I’m not his usual demographic, but I do enjoy his music: “Better Now,” “I Fall Apart,” “Sunflower,” “Psycho.” It’s an impressive body of work. He’s also quite the personality— very charismatic … Read the rest
