  • Pick poinsettias at their peak

    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.

  • Tis the season for givinig

    FRANKFORT – There is never a bad time to count our blessings, but with Thanksgiving upon us, this time of year especially welcomes a look back on the positive things in our lives.
    I know it has been tough for far too long for many families because of the economy, and yet I am heartened that our sense of charity has never wavered.
    According to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 63 million Americans volunteered at least once last year, and each spent 52 hours on average helping others.

  • The holiday season is more about what we already have

    I celebrated my 25th birthday this past week. I like to think of it as an age where I finally catch an insurance break but my wife was quick to point out that I am now a quarter of century old.
    Once those hurtful however true words were spoken and her little cackling subdued, I began to think about how right she was... and I will never admit it ever again as long as I live.
    I don’t feel older at all, if anything I feel as young as I did when I turned 18 to be honest.

  • Give thanks with a greatful heart

    “Thou great I AM,” the Puritans wrote in “The Valley of Vision,” “I acknowledge and confess that all things come of Thee — life, breath, happiness, advancement, sight, touch, hearing, goodness, truth, beauty — all that makes existence amiable.”
    Thou truly are a great and gracious God who has been truly good to me.
    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.
