  • Conversations with God

    Updated Nov 21, 2019

    Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, November is a ‘thankful’ time. A friend remembered when she was growing up how her Grandma always set a huge table for her dear family. “J.L.” recalled that Grandma would tell them that this was the perfect time to start ‘cheerleading on paper’. Grandma had a stack of paper and had each person write their name on the top, then all the slips of paper were dropped into a basket. After a most delicious meal, everyone drew a name from the basket. “J.L.” remembered everyone being ve...

    Raquel Williams|Updated Nov 20, 2019

    Dean Meyer|Updated Nov 20, 2019

    Hello, Well, the storm that was forecast for opening day of deer season wasn’t as bad as was anticipated.

I recall a day back in the eighties when we had a house full of deer hunters snowed in...
