  • ‘Wild’ animals could teach us all a lesson

    I have noticed that many people have pretty definite reactions when I say I feed a raccoon.
    Until this raccoon came to my house, injured and starving, I did not know they had such a bad reputation. How could that be? It seemed to me that they are just cute and smart and harmless.
    Hmm, that is before I heard lots of painful recitations of ruined corn patches and gardens and how resourceful folks have to be to protect their harvest.
    Well, OK. I learned a good lesson, but there are extenuating circumstances.

    Forty years ago last August, Ernie and I were married. A day later, we were in the beautiful Smoky Mountains at Gatlinburg.
    I had never been, at least I don’t remember ever having been there. And I truly think I would have remembered the Elvis Museum.
    There wasn’t much more than that in Pigeon Forge at the time ... perhaps the Muscle Car Museum. However, we were on the downhill of the muscle car era. I’m not so sure there would have been a museum yet.

    The dictionary says that a tragedy is an event causing great suffering, destruction, and distress, such as an accident, crime, or natural catastrophe.   
    The events of last Wednesday afternoon, Thanksgiving Eve, can only be described as a tragedy.  
    Whenever a young person’s life is taken away no matter the circumstance, or who the young person is, there are always those close to that person who are saddened and remorseful.

  • Grace Notes

    Last Saturday, Larry Silverman caught a catfish, which he considers a miracle, a moment of light after a year of incredible darkness.
    Larry is the pastor of New Covenant of Grace Fellowship in Inverness, FL.
    Last year, Larry had a loose tooth, and shortly after he had it pulled he was diagnosed with cancer in his mouth. As a result, he had part of his tongue removed and his jaw reconstructed using a bone and skin from his leg. He now eats through a feeding tube.
