  • “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love” (1 Corinthians 13:13, NIV).

    I hate to admit it, but we live in a consumer driven, disposable world.

    Our lives are filled with advertisements wanting our business. Consumer giants like Amazon continue to experience growth as more and more people order online. Every day something is invented, something is improved and there is something made that we just can’t live without.

  • So, this is the last time I’m writing about Jonah — I promise. Maybe.

    It’s just that his story is so chock-full of things that smack me between my eyes.

    Last week I wrote about being inside the fish. This week, Jonah’s been spit out onto the shore, alive.

    My pastor said of this recently: “The grace of God spins you like a tornado, then it throws you out.”

    He added, “It throws you back in the fray,” back in the game, back in the battle.

  • “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” – Leo Tolstoy

    Dear Readers,

    Change is a difficult thing to accept at times, yet when you take time to think of it, we are in a constant state of change from birth. It is something we should have mastered by now but most of us continue to struggle with change.

  • 2018 was Kentucky’s wettest year on record and the New Year seems to be more of the same. This means most livestock producers are dealing with less than ideal conditions, and cattle are showing signs of stress.

    “It is important to understand this winter has been relatively easy temperature-wise but difficult for cattle in Kentucky,” said Michelle Arnold, ruminant extension veterinarian for the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment. “Cows of all ages are losing weight now at levels typically seen in late winter.”

  • Most of us know that eating family meals together at home is good for families.

  • I’m still thinking about Jonah and the whole swallowed by a fish thing.

    Here are some of my thoughts:

    * Sometimes you’re plankton. You’re minding your own business when all of a sudden a big fish swallows a smaller fish as its lunch and you, the microscopic plankton swimming nearby, get swallowed too.

    What’s up with that?
