  • Do not fear walking with God

    I was sleeping soundly, all wrapped up in my sleeping bag, in my tent, miles into the back-country of Minnesota. I had canoed all day so I was tired, which helped me fall asleep quickly. 
    Suddenly, a loud crack of a tree trunk nearby followed by a growl woke me from my slumber. As my friend Billy and I tried to unwrap ourselves from our sleeping bag cocoons, we heard shouts from outside yelling “Bear!  Bear!” 

  • Grace Notes

    Whenever my husband starts a sentence with, “Before you say no, hear me out,” I know I’m headed for a heart attack or two.
    It’s usually about an idea he has for a change around the house, from knocking down a wall to rearranging the furniture.
    No matter what the change is, I immediately hate the idea only because I hate change of any kind.
    I’ve had the same hairstyle for 30 years, the same job since 1992, the same husband since 1975. The furniture in my house hasn’t changed since we moved in 16 years ago.

  • Something new and the same old things

    J.D. Kendall, son of Larry and Debbie Kendall, won the Elks Hoop Shoot Region last Saturday in Paris, Tennessee.  All J.D. had to do to win this is make 25 of 25 free throws. He defeated shooters from Tennessee, Missouri and Arkansas to win the competition.  
    Can you imagine the tension and pressure on a young man when shooting free throws in front of a gym full of people, some he knows most he doesn’t, in a gym six hours from his home?
