9. Two hawks at one time? Well, what kind of symbolic message is that? Surely, it’s good, right? The hawk is a messenger bird. Usually when we see a hawk it means to pay attention because a message is coming to you. Hawks represent clear sightedness, being observant, our far memory and guardianship. They also bring courage, wisdom, illumination, creativity and truth. Hawks give us the ability to see the larger picture in life. They can help you to overcome problems and make wise use of opportunities. This picture was taken by Gaynelle Nunn at her home in Roanoke, AL.
8. The Holy Bible is the spiritual passage of life. Within its contents lies everything we need to get us through every single aspect of life. However, it usually takes us years to figure this out, so many of us never attempt to dedicate ourselves to studying these scriptures to uncover their true meanings until we are much older. So, that’s what makes this picture so special. Seeing this beautiful 7-yr old girl , Trinity Davis Cotney, reading her Bible so intently is an inspirational sign that with all the evil in the world filling our news feeds, perhaps there still is a little hope after all. Well done, Tabitha Davis….you’re raising this girl right 🙂
7. Look out, Paula Deen, you’ve got some competition coming up! This kid is going to make someone a fantastic husband! LOL. When two year old Jaxin Nash saw his mother making some tea, he decided he would add his own little special touch of flavor, after it cooled down. Jaxin is the son of Jesse and Sarah Nash of Delta.
P.S. No children were harmed in the making of this photo 🙂
6. We’ll just call this one, “Are you Kidding me??”. This photo was taken by Jeremy Nash last Saturday at an Extrication Class for the Ashland Fire Department. Excuse me, can we maybe use some of that high-tech equipment on disposing of this unwelcome spectator?? <shivers>
5. They say if you want something done, then you might as well do it yourself…right?? Well, look out, Maddie Jane Shealy is about to show you how its done! ! It seems Maddie Jane received the amazing gift of a new swing set for her fourth birthday and she doesn’t want to wait a minute longer to play on it. So, after losing patience with the men in her family, she is taking matters into her own hands with the construction. Someone get this kid a hard hat and watch her work 🙂 Maddie Jane is the daughter of Jeremi and Alexandra Shealy of Lineville.
4. The look on this kid’s face is priceless and I think his shirt speaks for itself!! LOL Give 3 yr old Grayson Rainwater about 20 years and he’ll be able to melt you with his iron clad stare. Wouldn’t you just love to know what he’s thinking? Is he happy? Is he mad? Is he sad? Well, the jury is still out on that one, but I’m sure Coca-Cola appreciates the plug here because he totally owns that hat! Grayson is the son of Matt and Beth Rainwater.
3. There’s a lot to be said about the bond between a beloved family pet and the newest additions to the family and this one speaks volumes. From the moment 13-month old Dax Spangenberg was brought home, Lola here was smitten and the feeling was mutual. Lola loves her some of these little sweet cheeks and is shown here playing affectionately with his little Master, as Dax tries to feed him a rock. Now, that’s love :). Dax is the son of Josh and Whitney Spangenberg of Ashland. AL.
2. Don’t worry Mom, I’ve got this baby-sitting thing covered here, you just enjoy your kid-less vacation! No worries! Oh, I’m sure she wasn’t concerned at all. LOL. Randall Upchurch’s stock went up considerably with his wife, Tiffany, when he surprised her with a weekend getaway with the girls, and their 3 boys, Cager, Aiden, and Bence seem to really be enjoying the quality time with Dad. So, let’s say hi to Mom, guys, with your best smiles! What can I say? Boys will be boys 🙂
- As a city mourned the sudden loss of one of its most loved citizens, this picture pretty much summed us how everyone felt about his passing. Early morning May 31, 2016, the tragic news sent shock waves through the community that Owner of Ashland Tire Company, Perry Browning, had passed away suddenly and they grieved hard. This man was a cornerstone of the city of Ashland and his presence was everywhere. It was as if he had always been around and no one ever thought he would leave us. Although we know that everyone has to go sometime, this was one was a hard pill to swallow. Perry was dearly loved by many, and he will always be remembered through stories of his compassion, spirituality, and kindness to others. That’s the way you leave your footprints on the face of this Earth. Rest Easy, Perry and watch over us in the same manner you did on Earth!
