  • My life among the wild ones

    I have built-in radar that detects animals in need with unerring accuracy.

    It’s caused me much satisfaction throughout the years. It’s also gotten me into a fair amount of trouble. Some people don’t appreciate a veritable pride of cats. Some people don’t appreciate a food bill of ridiculous proportions that contains absolutely nothing for humans. I attempt to hide these bills, with absolutely no success.

  • Be still, not pretend to be

    My current screen saver on my phone is a simple Bible verse, a command and a promise, eight small but powerful words: “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10).

    That verse, those eight small, ordinary words, has been my lifeline for the past year or two as I have struggled with some difficult things within my family.

    Be still.

    Be — not pretend to be or try to be, but be.

    Whenever God gives a command in his Word, he also gives the means to do it.

  • What are you looking for?

    In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue. Sound familiar? It should!

    You learned this in school. It’s a rhyme that reminds us that in 1492 Christopher Columbus set sail from Spain to prove the world is round and to look for new worlds. Later that year he and his ships made it to the West Indies, proving that the world is indeed round and discovering new territories. This would not have in happened if in part, he hadn’t been looking to discover new truths.

  • Agriculture industry remains vital lifeblood to Kentuckians

    With fall finally feeling like it has arrived, farmers across the country are in full swing as they wind down another growing season. Although we are surrounded by farmland, we may sometimes forget that, as a profession, farmers are an elite group.

    In 1880, two-thirds of Kentucky’s workforce could be found on a farm, and even 60 years later, the rate was still one in three. By the early 1990s, however, we had largely caught up with the rest of the nation and saw our numbers drop below four percent.
