  • God of ‘another chance’

    Recently, I met a young guy who told me about his faith journey with Jesus.

    He had grown up in church but didn’t want to follow Jesus once he got older. He didn’t go into details, but he said he was a knucklehead and did a lot of stuff he knew was wrong and didn’t really want to do what’s right.

    One day he was out driving and hydroplaned his car and it stopped just before going over a ledge.

    He said as he thought about what had just happened and how it could’ve ended, he heard God say to him, “Give me another chance.”

  • Prepare for the move outdoors

    Our current warm, sunny weather has made everyone just delighted and the intoxication of it all may lead us to act impulsively. 

    I am as anxious as anyone to move some of my houseplants outdoors: My gardenia looks terrible in the dining room and the jasmine down stairs seems to stare into space dreaming of better days.

    They are coming, just be slow about the transition from indoors to out.

  • Flat Run Veterans Park sign was a contribution of many

    To the editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who were involved in funding and installing the sign and platforms for benches and trash cans at Flat Run Veterans Park. First, I would like to thank United Community Fund for donating $1,000 toward this endeavor. Also, thank you to the County Fiscal Court and the City Council for agreeing to pay half of the remaining balance, which was a very generous amount. Your kind attention was appreciated.

    Thanks to Steve Snapp for designing a sign that is great looking and one in which we can be proud of.
