    Eight year old Hallie Clough celebrates birthday in a different fashion.

She had commented that she did not need toys and Christmas was on the way. Therefore, she decided to collect items for the animal shelter.

    CYNTHIANA BAPTIST

  • Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy has been writing an annual psalm of thanksgiving since 1999 when she first started writing her column.

    Dear God,
    It’s that time of year when I sit down to compose my annual psalm of thanksgiving. This will be my 16th year of making public my thanks and gratitude to you for yet another year of your faithfulness to me.
    This past year has been difficult in so many ways. At times I’ve felt like a dog’s chew toy, eaten up and slobbered on. I’ve felt pulled and pushed, stretched and torn.
