    Dear Spring,
    I’m ready. I’ve waited (im)patiently while your predecessor has made hit after hit on us.
    I’m ready for Old Man Winter to gather up his dingy, gray snow and ice, his biting wind and frosty mornings and hit the road.
    I realize that it’s early.  And that according to the pudgy rodent in Pennsylvania, we still have six weeks of bad weather to endure. However, taking into consideration all of the Global Warming mish mosh, I believe that Winter should just bow out now.

    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.

  • Only God judges me

    There are two bumper stickers that I totally don’t understand. One states, “He Who Dies With The Most Toys Wins.” Wins what? We all know that we can’t take it with us and what is left goes to either the tax man or our estate. So what’s won? 
    The second one, the gist of this article, “Only God Can Judge Me.” 

  • Grace Notes

    A number of years ago, I flew a plane, Delta flight 837.
    OK, I didn’t exactly fly it, but I definitely helped.
    My daughter and granddaughter were on that flight from Atlanta to Honolulu, a nine-hour, 14-minute flight that, except for bathroom breaks, I tracked on my computer to make sure they got there safely.
    At one point, about an hour off the California coast, I noticed that the plane icon on my computer faced east instead of west.
