  • As the story goes, a group of tourists on an African safari hired several native porters to carry their supplies.

    After three days, the porters announced they needed to stop and rest for a while. However, they didn’t appear to be tired, so the tourists asked why they needed to stop.

    One of the porters said, “We are not tired, but we have walked too far too fast and now we must wait for our souls to catch up.”

    I thoroughly understand. Often I go too far too fast and life zips by and my soul is somewhere else, left behind in the dust.

  • Sam Burgess went on vacation to Ocean Isle, N.C. with a few of his family members and they brought along the Trimble Banner to read in their spare time. Pictured left to right are Mark Sawyer, Sherri Sawyer, Sam Burgess, Gwen Fothergill Knight, Linda Brown, Holly Hughes Yowler, Robert Yowler, and Benetta Knight. 

    Planning a getaway for fall break or later this year? Take along a copy of the Banner and send a picture of the family with the newspaper to editor@mytrimblenews.com.

  • We all know we should exercise every day for better health. But fitting it in can be tricky with the demands of home, family and career. If you have fallen off the exercise wagon before you know how easy it is once you miss one day to skip the next one.

    That’s why it is so important for us to make exercise a daily habit. Research suggests it takes 21 days of doing an activity before it becomes a habit. Actually, if the habit is a new or a harder one (like exercise), it can take the average person up to 66 days to form a strong habit.

  • Love is a wonderful, amazing and, at times, confusing thing.

    For most of us our first experience with love is when we are born. We feel the love of our parents. We might experience our first “crush” when we are adolescents, and more than likely get our hearts broken. Then we meet, the one. That special person who we fall head-over-heels in love with. I am fortunate to have been married to my wonderful wife for 21 years, but I’ll be the first to admit that I still don’t really understand love. If we are honest, none of us truly understand real love.
