  • Early one Saturday morning I was on the treadmill at the gym watching “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” on the TV in front of me.
    TLWW is the first of C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia allegorical series about a wonderland that’s taken hostage by an evil witch.
    In the part of the movie that caught my attention, the boy Edmund finds himself in Narnia, in the snow, shivering in his p.j.s, robe and slippers.

  • I seriously cannot believe it is December. It is time to start decorating for the holidays which includes the poinsettia.  
    The poinsettia has been a fixture in American homes as a holiday decoration for as long as most of us can remember.  
    I think it is fair to say that it is considered the ‘official’ Christmas flower. In fact the U.S. Census Bureau says that over 75 million plants were sold last holiday season.  
    The poinsettia is native to Mexico and has been recognized for its beauty and function for centuries.

    Manuel Castillo, a native of Guadalarjara, Mexico, will be the featured entertainer at Cynthiana Christian Church on Thursday, Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m.
    The community is invited to attend this presentation. A free will offering will be taken. A banquet will precede the evening’s entertainment.
    Tickets are $12 each and may be reserved  by calling the church office at 234-5332.  Deadline for banquet reservations is Nov. 28.

    Thank you, Lord, for the pleasures of life, for work and sleep, for irritants that refine my rough edges, for hard times that make me tough and good times that make me smile.
