  • Although I’m not a huge fan of doughnuts -- they’re not sweet enough for me to justify ingesting all those calories -- as soon as I walked into work the other day, I made a beeline for the box of Dunkin Donuts leftover from the day before.
    Before I knew it, one of them made its way from the box and into my mouth.
    I didn’t want to eat it, but I did anyway.

  • The United Methodist Women of the First United Methodist Church met Thursday, May 4. It was the annual event of “Ladies Night Out.” There were 46 women present.
    Barbara Harris, co-president, welcomed the women to the meeting. Virgie Wells, co-president, reminded the women of the worldwide work that the United Methodist Women accomplish. It is heart warming to know that our work continues after 150 years.
    Esther Coy blessed the food. A meal catered by Kara Godman, and served by school children, very efficiently, was enjoyed by everyone.

  • With Mother’s Day fresh in our minds, I am reminded of all mothers and the pivotal role they play in all our lives.
    Whenever I think of precious memories from my childhood, I see a picture of my mother in most of my recollections. She was always there caring, nurturing, raising and loving me and my siblings.

  • A week or so ago, I spoke at a fundraising event for the George Washington Carver Community Center in Crystal River, Florida, near where I live.
    The center is built on the footprint of the historic all-black George Washington Carver School.
    I spoke to them about hope.
    On Thursday, I also spoke about hope to some ladies at a local Presbyterian church.
    Hope is one of my favorite topics, if not my very favorite. Without hope, I would shrivel and die.
    I suspect you would too.
