  • Some odd and ends during the District

    I had several comments on last week’s article about how the grandchildren remind me and others of me.

    Several things of note happened that I want to comment on this week.  
    First thing is Stephen Moses and Lee Kendall being selected to the 10th Region Basketball Hall of Fame. Moses was the best shooter that I have seen in the past 35 years of watching Harrison County basketball.

  • What face do you show?

    The other day I read an article written by Sharon Miller, a woman who stopped wearing makeup “as an act of Christian discipleship.”
    She was getting ready to go shopping with her in-laws and as she went through her usual morning routine of blow-drying her hair and picking out an outfit, she decided to go to the mall sans makeup.
    She said she had been inspired by a book, “Dance of the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Women’s Spirituality,” by Maria Harris.
