  • “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you” Philippians 4:8-9 (NIV).

  • My latest crime against intellect occurred at the gas station. I have pumped more gas in my time as a driver than I care to remember. In the past I commuted far distances for work so I found it necessary to buy gas more than once a week. In short, I know how to pump gas; except on this particular day.

    My kids and I were just finishing a quick trip to pick up a few items. I noticed that as was custom, my car was nearly out of gas. I pulled into a nearby gas station and that’s where my humiliation began.

  • The Trimble County Historical Society’s Cemetery Commission has been busy in the first week of May.

    The City of Bedford donated a 30-foot by 30-foot plot for a Veterans Memorial Park at the Bedford Cemetery. Trimble County Historical Society Cemetery Commission members Chris Liter, David Masterson, Chase Masterson and Lewis Popp, along with magistrate Kenny Green, moved the cemetery’s flagpole to its new location Saturday in the Trimble County Veterans Memorial Park.

  • Slowly the weather is, and will be, getting warmer here in Kentucky. People are planting flowers and preparing their gardens.

    In Oregon, where I grew up, as the weather warms, the vineyards of northwest Oregon become beautifully green and luscious. The scenes are very similar to what the land of ancient Israel must have looked like in Jesus’ era. In Jesus’ day the wine industry was vital to Israel’s economy.

  • Easter has passed, but I’m still thinking about a part of the gospel story of Christ’s resurrection that I often miss.

    It happened on that Sunday.

    Early in the morning the women had gone to the tomb where they had placed Christ’s body on Friday after his crucifixion.

    The women found the tomb empty and an angel told them Jesus wasn’t there, that he had risen, just as he had said.

    That part of the story I’ve never forgotten.

  • I belong to a generation that holds to the philosophy that “a lady never tells her age.” I adhere to that policy despite the obvious physical signs that I, indeed, belong to generation that keeps certain secrets. I completely realize if time is like a river mine has nearly reached the ocean is and somewhat worse for the wear.

  • Years ago, I knew a feisty older woman who loved to say, “There’s nothing like a good smiting.”

    She’d point out how, in the Bible, God was always smiting people – and she had a list of people on her own smite list.

    Don’t we all have people we’d rather smite than forgive?

    Last month at the church in Tampa we frequently visit, the pastor talked about the words Jesus spoke from the cross, beginning with “Father, forgive them – they don’t know what they’re doing.”

  • Christian parents bear a great responsibility in relation to their children.

  • The other day a coworker was telling me about the time he got a huge insurance check after his house flooded and how he learned that if you have lots of money to spend at The Home Depot they treat you as if you were of a superior species.

  • This year, Easter coincided with April Fools’ Day. I have to chuckle because God gets the first laugh. When everyone thought that Jesus was dead and done, God says, “I’m not finished. Surprise! Jesus is alive!” God showed the world on that first Easter that He can fix anything.
