Valentine’s Day has come and gone again but I have one more sweet love story to share – the kind of love they make movies about. Really, after reading this letter from Ernie, I had this whole Hollywood movie plot formulating in my head. Any script
writers or novelists out there, take note of this…
Delilah, this Valentine’s Day marked 9 years without Nancy, my late wife. The wonderful memories I have of her go back to a December, over 20 years ago. It was there, on-board the carrier Enterprise, I chose several letters
from a seasonal event we had called "Operation Dear Abby," which took place in many newspapers throughout the United States.
During Christmas, Abby asked readers to write to service members, who would be away from their families for the holidays. My future wife, Nancy from Independence, Missouri wrote to the 12 addresses in her local paper. I picked
her card along with 4-5 others to say thanks for writing. We became pen pals.
There is much, much more to the story, but suffice it to say we were married the following December in Independence. She was my Valentine for many years. I miss her, but the memories she left me will always bring a smile on
that day. From, Ernie....
Well, I really want that “much, much more” missing piece to the story because I think that’s the stuff that’s going to make the hit Hollywood movie. For those of you out there with a script-worthy love story, don’t leave out the mushy details when you write to me!
E-mail your story to Producer David tonight... and he will share those with me: David@delilah.com.
See you tonight, on the radio!
With Love... Delilah <3

If you've got any pretty pictures like these to share, send them to Producer David at: David@deliah.com... we would love to see them :)
I have two daughters who are planning to flee the coop soon. They will both graduate this June, and God-willing, they will both attend college next fall. I am excited and a little sad about all of it…but since I still have six children
left at home, I am far from having an empty nest.
My daughter Angel is a senior this year and it was only 6 years ago that I adopted her and brought her home from West Africa where she lived in a refugee camp. She was just a girl living on the streets when I met her, surviving horrific conditions. She had never set foot into a school. She didn’t know how to read or write.
Now Angel is working towards graduating and aspires to be a doctor one day. I cannot express how deeply proud I am of her and of how far she has come, and how far she is willing to go to change the world for good. It hasn’t always
been easy reasoning with a young woman who has such an
independent-survivalist-been-taking-care-of-myself kind of background. But it’s amazing what love, nurturing, food, education and patience can do in the life of a child. Angel has flourished into a beautiful, spirited, intelligent young
Many of my kids have overcome amazing obstacles at young ages. Some of my kids were adopted out of the foster system where they were terribly abused, but they
don’t use those problems as an excuse not to succeed. As adults now, they are using their past as motivation to change their world and give their children stable and loving homes.
My kids inspire me to try harder, and I hope their stories resonate with you. I hope you are pouring your love into another human being today, be it your spouse, your children, your grandchildren, or your friends. Do something to share your heart. And choose to use the obstacles in your life as motivation; choose to see them as stepping stones to a better situation.
Let your faith be bigger than your struggles and your fear.
Just a thought.... With Love, Delilah <3
Who Are You.....

When you look up at the moon, who are you thinking of? Is there someone you are wishing was with you... right now... as you look at the Moon & Stars. Or, perhaps there's someone you know IS looking up at that same Moon & Stars... and perhaps you'd like to re-connect with them. Perhaps, even, these heavenly stars above are keeping your hearts bound together, across distance... perhaps someone on the other side of the city tonight... or, even the other side of the state or country.
Click on the Moon Image, above, and e-mail us your story... what are you thinking about... and feeling, when you see the Moon & Stars overhead tonight... while listening to these Love Songs on the show. I look forward to hearing from you & sharing your messages, via the airwaves.
See you tonight on the radio :)
With Love.... Delilah <3
