  • Life is hard, then you die

    We recently remodeled an upstairs bathroom. We replaced the floor, toilet, vanity, tub, lights. It was so much better. Within three weeks we noticed a leak from the kitchen ceiling, which is right below the new tub. The tub drain leaks.
    Just when we thought life was improving, wow, an even bigger problem than we had before. That is really a commentary on life isn’t it.
    We plant a vegetable or flower garden. Beautiful! But then wind and hail, rabbits and coons, weeds and disease seem bent on destroying what we have accomplished.

    One of the great pleasures in life is being able to say, “I told you so.”
    I don’t get to say it often, but when I do, especially when I can say it to my husband, I do it with immense glee. I may even dance around and sing.
    Moms get to say I told you so a lot.
    Remember Ralphie’s mom in “A Christmas Story”? Ralphie kept asking for Red Ryder BB gun and his mom kept saying, “You’ll shoot your eye out.”

  • Let the bell of liberty ring

    Tradition tells of a chime that rang out on July 8, 1776, from the tower of Independence Hall summoning the citizens of Philadelphia to hear the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence by Colonel John Nixon.  
    That chime came from the Liberty Bell which has ever since become a symbol of the iconic Declaration upon which so many of our freedoms rest.

    At my church this summer we’re learning about the “hard sayings” of Jesus.
    He said stuff like, “I have not come to give peace but division,” “Judge not” and “Let the dead bury the dead.”
    He also said we could ask for stuff -- “Ask and it will be given to you” and that “everyone who asks receives” (Luke 11:9-10).
    He said, “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it” (John 14:13-14).
    My pastor called it “the big ask.”

    Cynthiana Baptist Church Celebrates its 150th Anniversary

    Cynthiana Baptist Church was formed on Saturday, July 13, 1867, with the help of pastors and elders from churches in surrounding counties and where 12 people presented themselves for membership.
    Articles of faith and a church covenant were approved as well as a name for the church adopted.

  • Jesus, Peter and the charcoal fire

    The elderly man sat down beside me at the mall as he broke out in tears. I softly asked, “Are you okay? May I help you somehow?” He replied, “I am fine. My wife died five years ago and one of those ladies I just passed is wearing her perfume.”
    It only takes one moment to smell a fond scent, or hear a fond sound. Within that moment we experience an avalanche of memories and emotions.
    The Apostle Peter had such a moment at the hand of Jesus, the master psychotherapist.

    I’ve lived in Florida long enough to know that sometimes we have drought conditions and sometimes the water in the rivers and lakes gets so high it overflows.
    About five years ago, this area of Florida was bone dry. It was so dry that a local man who lived on a canal -- “waterfront property” -- converted the dried-out canal off his boat dock into a golf course, complete with putting green, fairway and a tall grass hazard.
