  • Which Packers Mom Did I Sit Behind At The Game?

    Posted by Corey Carter

    I was lucky enough to get Indoor Club Seats for the Packers-Titans game on Sunday.  It was hard not to notice which Packers' Mom was sitting in front of us.  (In fact, the whole family was there, Mom, Dad, Aunt, Sister, Brother...)

     

     

    Yup, Brian Bulaga's Mom!!

    Nice bedazzeled jersey, huh?!?!

    I asked her what Brian's favorite Christmas gift growing up was, she said, "It was probably a Madden video game."  Go figure.


    Also, I asked what his favorite Christmas food was, and she said, "We're Polish, so it was probably Pierogi...

    Pierogi (Polish pronunciation: [pjɛˈrɔɡʲi]; also spelled perogipierogyperogypierógipyrohypirogi, or pyrogy; juvenile diminutive form: Pierożki Polish pronunciation: [pjɛˈrɔʂki] also in use) are dumplings of unleavened dough – first boiled, then they are baked or fried usually in butter with onions – traditionally stuffed with potato fillingsauerkraut,ground meat, cheese, or fruit. 

     

    Merry Christmas!!

  • ANOTHER Beautiful/Sad Poem about the Sandy Hook Tragedies

    Posted by Corey Carter

    On Tuesday I read a poem on the air and got a lot of comments on it...beautiful....sad and hopefully it made you stop and look at the big picture in your own life, especially if you have children.

    Somebody commented on that blog post with this poem, so I thought I'd post it as well,  Another tear-jerker:

     

    • A Memorial Poem: Newtown, CTAuthor Unknown

      Twas' 11 days before
      Christmas, around 9:38
      when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's
      gate.

      Their smiles were contagious; their laughter filled the air,

      ......they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.

      They
      were filled with such joy; they didn't know what to say,
      they remembered
      nothing of what had happened earlier that day.

      "Where are we?" asked a
      little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
      "This is heaven." declared a small boy,
      "We’re spending Christmas at God's house."

      When what to their wondering
      eyes did appear,
      but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near.

      He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same,
      then He
      opened His arms and He called them by name.

      And in that moment was joy
      that only heaven can bring
      those children all flew into the arms of their
      King

      As they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
      one small girl
      turned and looked at Jesus' face.

      As if He could read all the questions
      she had,
      He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of mom and dad."

      Then He looked down on earth, the world far below,
      He saw all of the
      hurt, the sorrow, and woe.

      Then He closed His eyes and He outstretched
      His hand,
      "Let My power and presence re-enter this land!"

      "May this
      country be delivered from the hands of fools",
      "I'm taking back my nation,
      I'm taking back my schools!"

      Then He and the children stood up without a
      sound,
      "Come now my children, let me show you around."

      Excitement
      filled the space, some skipped and some ran,
      all displaying enthusiasm that
      only a small child can.

      And I heard Him proclaim as He walked out of
      sight,
      "In the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT

    Did you know?

    By Christine Kimball

    December 15, 2012

    Hi Mommy! Hey Dad! Hi Nana and Pa! Hi Whiskers and Flash!

    I’m here with God, and so are my friends. He’s giving us hugs.

    He doesn’t want you to worry. We’re surrounded by love.

    The last time I smiled at you, was night before last.

    When you pulled up the covers, you were making me laugh.

    That book you read was always your best.

    The voices were funny and put me to rest.

    Did you know the hug you gave me at school in the morning,

    Was the one hug you’d hold on to while you were in mourning?

    Did you know my Christmas concert would be the last time I’d sing?

    Or the trip to the park would be my last on a swing?

    Nana, did you know when you left this weekend, that it’d be our last kiss?

    Or my whisper to Santa would be my last wish?

    And when I was running, I tripped and I fell.

    That was the last time Daddy’s kiss made me well.

    Whiskers and Flash – you always make me laugh!

    When I pet you goodbye and you thought I’d be home…

    Well God decided today that a new path I’d roam.

    Mommy, I’m sorry! I left you such a mess!

    But I know you’ll forgive me, ‘cause Mommy you’re the best!

    Daddy thank you for taking me door to door!

    You encouraged me as a mermaid, to keep getting more.

    This summer I swam for the very first time.

    Papa lifted my chin and told me to “keep trying”.

    My socks are everywhere, and probably in the car.

    Did you know I’d be here today? It just seems so far!

    But God reassured me, that you’d all be okay.

    If each of you loves me and continues to pray.

    Did you know I left my homework lying on the table?

    We rushed out the door, turn it in if you’re able.

    Did you know where I hid my present for you?

    I made it with paper and glitter and glue.

    I hope you find it, hidden under my bed.

    Take down the wreathe and put it on the door instead.

    Mommy, did you know that angels are true?

    They have big beautiful wings and their smiles remind me of you.

    Take my pillow into your room. It smells just like me.

    Hug it tight while you cry. I hug it when things are frightening.

    Did you know I’d be in heaven, waiting for you?

    Nana I beat you! It was such a race!

    But Jesus has told me, you’ll be in this place.

    I’m waiting for everyone, when you’re ready to come.

    There’s no more fears that I have to hide from.

    Did you know that I love you? You cannot forget.

    That God’s up here with me, and beside him I sit.

  • If You Believe - This Might Help

    Posted by Corey Carter

    After 24 hours, it's still hard to comprehend.  If you are a believer, I looked these up and thought I'd share with you.  I feel like I've been on the verge of tears since the news on Friday morning.   It's times like these that the only way some people can get through is with their faith.  I pray that the families of the victims come together and that they use their faith in the unbelivably tough time.

    John 14:1-4
    Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God[; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so,
    I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go
    and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that
    you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.

    2 Corinthians 1:3-5
    Praise be to the God and Father of our
    Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that
    we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received
    from God. 5For just as the sufferings of
    Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.

    Revelation 21:4
    He will wipe every tear from their eyes.
    There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of
    things has passed away."

    Psalm 34:18
    The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves
    those who are crushed in spirit

    Isaiah 54:10
    "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills
    be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace
    be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion on you.

     

    "In this crazy world, there's an enormous distinction between good times and bad,
    between sorrow and joy. But in the eyes of God, they're never separated. Where
    there is pain, there is healing.
    Where there is mourning, there is dancing.

    -Henri J. M. Nouwen

    When life caves in, you do not need reasons - you need comfort. You do not need
    some answers - you need someone. And Jesus does not come to us with an
    explanation - He comes to us with His presence.

    -Bob Benson

  • (VIDEO) How did YOU Celebrate Aaron Rodgers Day (12-12-12)??

    Posted by Corey Carter

    We actually had people emailing and calling the radio station outraged that school, at least in the Green Bay School District, wasn't cancelled.  I mean, 12-12-12 is just a step behind the birth of our Lord Jesus, right?!?  :)

    So how did you celebrate (besides wear his jersey, which EVERYONE did)??

     

    Also - if you missed this video I posted a month or so ago, I figured I'd fire it back up to show what a good guy Aaron is.
