  • The gift of so many good yesterdays

    Remember that moment when out of the blue you felt out of the regular pattern of time and space? Some people call it de’ja vu, some shiver and say someone stepped on their grave and others just deny it happened.
    Me? I think the experience is delightful. It always puts me in the mind of the conjure woman who lived up one of the hollers in the mountains where I grew up.

  • Viewpoint

    This candidate for the Presidency of the United States won, largely by campaigning as a political outsider.
    He won by condemning the elitist establishment that had controlled Washington for decades.
    He appealed to the “common man” and promised to include him in government.
    He favored less control by the central government and more self-determination by the states.
    When he was inaugurated, his supporters descended on Washington, and the political spectrum of the United States was forever changed.

  • Why online banking makes financial cents

    (StatePoint) Driven by lower banking fees, better interest rates on savings accounts, round-the-clock convenience and mobile phone usage, more consumers than ever are doing their banking online than at brick-and-mortar locations.
    The adoption of online banking has doubled since 2004, reaching 71 percent of consumers in 2015, according to Javelin Strategy & Research’s Online Banking Forecast 2016.

  • Trust God and do what you can

    As 2017 begins, I am reminded of a poem I read many years ago called “I am only one” by Edward Everett Hale.  In a world with so much trouble and problems, it is easy to get overwhelmed.  It is easy to wonder if I can make a difference in this life.

    But still I am one.
    I cannot do everything,
    But still I can do something;
    And because I cannot do everything,
    I will not refuse to do the something I can do.”

  • Grace Notes

    When my daughter, Laura, was 7 or so, I took her for swimming lessons at the community pool. She liked kicking while holding onto the pool’s side, and didn’t mind putting her face in the water. She even did quite well swimming across the pool.
    But when it came time to jump off the diving board, she decided little girls weren’t meant to leap from a place of safety into a potentially unsafe place.
