  • “If the word noble had to be applied to only one kind of tree, the honor would probably go to the Beech.”- James Crockett
    I must agree with Mr. Crockett’s sentiment. The Beech remains one of my favorite trees. They make great shade trees with a very low canopy, often touching the ground.  
    Beeches are stately trees that can be easily identified in the fall because of their golden color; and in the winter because the leaves have a tendency to remain attached to the tree.

  • If it’s true, as the proverb says, that “envy rots the bones,” then my bones are dust.
    Every once in awhile I hear from a certain friend whose life is perfect, or so I think.
    Just recently she posted on Facebook: “Well, we can cross a trip to Ireland off our list!! Had a fabulous vacation with all our wonderful kids, their spouses and our five -- five!! -- adorable grandbabies!!!”

  • By Tim Teater, Associate Pastor, Cynthiana Christian  Church

    “Though we did not all come over on the same ship, we are all in the same boat.” WOW! Whoever said that first, got it right.
    Two weeks after open heart surgery, God finally got me into the boat. And it is really a wonderful blessing, though quite torturous, right now. It has taught me an important lesson for all of us who take pride in being the one who always does for everybody else and allows nobody to help us.
