  • Have you noticed a sticky substance on the floor beneath your ficus or philodendron?  
    Are there little scabs on the underside of the leaves of your orchid? Maybe you have noticed that your plants just look a little lack luster.  
    Well, we can blame some of the plant puniness on being a tropical houseplant indoors in Kentuckiana during the winter.

    They keep flying by don’t they? The years. The years seem like pages of a book that are caught by the wind. They just keep flipping over, moving relentless to the end.
    Here we are at the turn of another year. Sometimes when you are singing, you have to reset to get back on the pitch. What does that reset look like for a Christian? 

  • Editor’s note: This column is adapted from Nancy Kennedy’s book, “Praying With Women of the Bible,” which is no longer in print.
    A number of years ago, amid the mice and filth of a Taliban prison in Afghanistan, two ordinary American young women wrote and sang praise songs to the Lord.

  • Some years are worse than others: I remember years when it was like a siege of lady beetles, other years a few popped up here or there.  
    Usually they sneak their way into our homes as a noticeable chill settles in.
     On sunny days they cling to the screen door on the south side of where I write but I need not worry about them as they sun themselves. The ones that make it inside, however, meet my vacuum cleaner.
    The perceived invasion is as simple as looking for a little warmth and protection from winter weather.

    Just a reminder that City on a Hill Church is no longer meeting at the old Berry Lumber Co. Building. We are now holding services every Sunday in the Community room at the Cynthiana-Harrison County Public Library.
    Connect time is 9-9:45 a.m. for some recreation and Bible Study for our youth with the youth Pastor. Adults will also meet for fellowship in the community room at these times. Service will begin at 10 a.m. with live worship. Come as you are and worship with us.

  • For the past few years, Christmas hasn’t felt merry.
    We’ve had some family struggles -- what family hasn’t at times? -- that have put a damper on our desire to celebrate. We didn’t even put up our Christmas tree the past two years.
    However, this year my husband surprised me by bringing the tree down from the attic the day after Thanksgiving while I was at work.
    He sent me a photo, which flipped a switch in my head. It hit a “hope” spot inside me, and I couldn’t wait to decorate it.
