I hope you enjoyed the radio show as much as I had a blast broadcasting it! From the Emails, posts & comments, a great number of you did.

 

 

It's amazing how people's words/actions affect how you feel. After my Christmas Eve radio broadcast Saturday afternoon, I had rather low energy. But, seeing all of the posts & Emails about my radio show ... & talking to people at the Christmas Eve service, along with a short drive to see Holiday decorations ... really re-energized me.

 

I wish I could be on the radio AND on road trips 24/7/365...!
