The Christmas Chicken and the Egg

Standard


How many births have you witnessed? Only a few for me. One memorable one was watching a chick pecking his way out of his shell. It took SO LONG!! Being the ever-so-patient person I am (just a little sarcasm, there), all I wanted to do was reach down and peel back the shell for the tiny creature peck-peck-pecking. But I couldn’t–it wouldn’t have been healthy for the chick. Nor is it for us! Watch this video to find out why! 🙂

CONGRATULATIONS TO SANDI LACEY, for winning last week’s contest–the prize being a Groovy Chick’s book of her choice! :)

For Thicker or Thinner…

Standard

For better or worse,
For richer or poorer
In sickness and health
In thicker or thinner…
Oh wait…that’s not in there. Well, it SHOULD be!

Today is John’s and my 31st wedding anniversary and here in this vlog I give you ALL the wisdom about marriage that I have gained in those 30 years! Ha, no, it’s true, people ask us what’s the secret to staying married for so long. It’s a good question considering how marriage throws two people together with opposite personalities, different upbringings, social and political standards, education values and different opinions about anything from child rearing to whether to watch Project Runway or Swamp People. And then we throw children in the mix!

So yeah, it’s a good question…and I give it my best shot at answering it. But the answer may surprise you.

Now it’s your turn…share with our vlogging community what you think it takes for a lasting marriage!

Hello from Ireland!

Standard

Sitting on a windy precipice on the coast of Ireland, Chelsea, Fred and I discuss our experience with a short term missions trip to Ireland!
And be sure to check out ALLLLL the pictures of our trip on my facebook page:  Laurie Barker Copeland

 

(And yes, I know it’s still September…I just didn’t know when I’d have a chance to get this posted!)  🙂

Let’s not ever say a writer’s life is boring, shall we?…

My niece, Amy requested I tell this true story because she thinks it’s one of the funniest she’s ever heard. (Thanks, Amy…your payment will arrive shortly.) This “live action” account of a writer’s life makes me wonder if Shakespeare had a day like this when he penned Comedy Of Errors. Comments are, as always, welcome!! 🙂

Hurricanes and Birthdays

Standard

What in the world do hurricanes have to do with birthdays? For one thing, my birthday is smack dab in the middle of the busiest part of hurricane season. (A fact I didn’t know growing up in Rochester, NY, as I celebrated it up over Labor Day weekend–the weekend before school started. But I digress…) Anyway, join guest vlogger Sandi Lacey and I as we discuss–oh, so intellectually–the similarities between hurricanes and birthdays. Then, if YOU have celebrated a birthday in the last year…um…that means YOU…drop us a comment and let us know if your birthday was hurricane related or not. 🙂
