Women's Sunday Series on Wed ~ Human Side of Christmas!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 3, 2014 / 0 Comments

One of my favorite Christmas hymns is “Mary Did You Know“. Something about the haunting melody. But the most powerful aspect for me is the words. Words that cause me to stop and realize that what we now celebrate as Christmas has a very human side. Mary was a young woman when visited by Gabriel…

Women, Life & Business ~ A Fish? Or Line & Lure!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / December 1, 2014 / 0 Comments

Remember the old saying, “Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime”?  This expression and it’s message didn’t occur to me given all the commercials filling my inbox, texts and Facebook news feed, although it fit quite well. Instead it occurred as…

From Jana's Desk…Beyond Black Friday!

By Jana Denninger / November 28, 2014 / 0 Comments

Greetings on what some choose to refer to this day as, Black Friday!   I would imagine that many of you will take advantage of the extra-special sales, although it appears that many retailers, both brick-and-mortar and online, have “jumped the gun” this year by opening up on Thanksgiving Day.  In fact, by the time some…

Gratitude & Thanksgiving – Another Day. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / November 25, 2014 / 0 Comments

We ought never stop giving thanks and being grateful for all that comes to us in life. Some things are especially hard to be grateful for; but PAPA doesn’t demand gratitude for the circumstance but for His ultimate purpose in all things that come to us. But that’s not the point of the post. Yesterday,…

Gratitude & Thanksgiving!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / November 24, 2014 / 0 Comments

No long post today. A few simple words to express the sentiment of the season we call “Thanksgiving”.  All too often I fail to recognize the multitude of blessings that are mine. Not that I forget, but that I take them for granted. Each day some small ‘miracle’ enters my life; I say “thank you…

Women, Life & Business ~ Out of Defeat

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / November 13, 2014 / 0 Comments

Comes Victory! There can be no victory if first there was not a battle. A battle won. We cannot know victory without first having tasted defeat! All the above are fairly well-worn phrases we’ve heard over the years. We say them – we hear them – we drop them like gems of wisdom along the paths…

Women, Life & Business ~ Monday Mayhem!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / November 10, 2014 / 0 Comments

What is there about Monday’s that make them either an “eager to get rolling again” – or “eh gads, it’s get moving day and I just don’t want to?” Comfort or chaos! Lately I’ve found Monday’s to be a mix of comfort, chaos and something in between. Mainly because I turn my focus away on…

Women, Life & Business ~ Monday Motivation

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / November 3, 2014 / 0 Comments

Monday’s can be tough! We come off a weekend in which – hopefully, we’ve turned our attention and focus elsewhere. Found some respite and relaxation totally unrelated to business or any aspect of professional life. Now it’s Monday and the beginning of a new work week. It’s been my experience that we often need a…

It Takes A Neighborhood ~ Heart & Soul!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / October 31, 2014 / 0 Comments

Heart and soul. How much is it worth?  Commerce is built on a number of things – all of which are important. Many build on a desire to stockpile a large monetary fortune. Others build on a desire for fame – being known for their business prowess and creative mind.  Still others start with altruism…

Women, Life & Business ~ Some Thursday Thoughts!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / October 9, 2014 / 0 Comments

Sometimes a full post just doesn’t come to mind. When that happens, I ask myself several questions: “Do I not post anything?  Do I just rattle off something with little to no substance simply to keep a running stream of content?” The answer I’ve come up with is “No” to both questions. I can at…
