  • Lessons From River Road Park

    During my lifetime, I have attended major league baseball games at some beautiful stadiums. I have viewed the home games of the St. Louis Cardinals, the New York Yankees, the Baltimore Orioles, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Atlanta Braves, the Chicago Cubs and of course the nearby Cincinnati Reds. 

    I must admit these were enjoyable experiences, but none of them compare with what I have viewed at the T-ball field at River Road, Cynthiana, Kentucky. 

  • The Age of Outrage -- let’s end it with love

    On Dec. 8, 2014, no one got eaten alive on the Discovery Channel’s “Eaten Alive” -- and some viewers who tuned in to see carnage were outraged.

    On May 6 of the same year, actress Shailene Woodley outraged feminists by announcing that she’s not a feminist, and on Aug. 28, Hello Kitty fans were outraged when the Sanrio company said Hello Kitty “is not a cat.”

  • Dead man laughing

    Ten years ago I wrote: “My friend Mike ate breakfast last week, which is nothing short of a miracle.

    “He doesn’t shake anymore or wake up in the middle of the night sweating. The little green monkeys that haunt him are gone too.”

    This week, my friend Mike is celebrating 10 years being sober. Not just sober, but healed and forgiven, whole and hopeful. He’s tasted the mercy of God, felt his hand of grace that pulled him from the abyss.

  • Blessings to you...Shine on!

    Have you noticed? Days seem to slip by in the summer. We enjoy extended daylight thanks to the position of the sun, the earth’s orbit and our utilization of daylight savings time. 

    The school year ends in late May. Before we know it July arrives with August following closely. The new school term advances and summer fades to memory. 

    Life’s that way. We anticipate, experience and before long, the seasons change.

  • Learning to enjoy the ride

     

    When I first met my husband he drove a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with orange pinstripes along the sides and orange vinyl interior -- and a manual transmission.

    As Barry attempted to teach me how to drive it, I proved myself to be a willing student, but not an adept one.

  • When God loses his mind

    Every so often I’ll say to God, “With all due respect and with the full realization that you can fry me on the spot, which I admittedly deserve -- you have obviously lost your mind. Sir.”
    Here’s a perfect example: After many, many months of inviting a friend to my church, one day several years ago this friend finally decided to actually come.
    I should’ve been happy about that, but that particular week was right in the middle of a capital campaign, which meant the pastor would be talking about giving money.

  • Yield Not to Temptation

    One of my favorite hymns is Yield not to Temptation. It contains words and tune by Horatio R. Palmer. The first line, of this well-known church song, states, “Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin; each victory will help you some other to win; fight manfully onward, dark passions subdue; look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.”  
    This hymn shouts the message that Christians need to strive for victory over the temptation to commit sin. It is the victories, not defeats in life, that give us testimonies.
