  • Sometimes you just have a hunch; you can’t explain it but something tells you to veer from your normal path and see what lies ahead in the other direction. One such hunch came over me last week on my way to work. I was running late and was just going to take the quickest route to Hodgenville from home, Hwy 31E. But something was telling me to turn off on Salem Church Road. Maybe it was my lack of acceptance that it was indeed production day after a long weekend with Monday off, but I followed my instincts and took the long way to work.

  • I love a good road trip. Not the driving across the country kind of road trip, I prefer to get lost in back roads that meander through the county-side. I enjoy finding off the beaten path sights and can’t resist turning down a road I haven’t traveled. Now that I’m working in LaRue County I’m eager to learn all about it and one of the first things I want to do is get “Lost in LaRue.” Join me on my adventures as I take pictures of places and people and write about my findings.

  • Many will find and be shocked, when the day of judgment nears, that there’s a special place in Heaven,set aside for volunteers.

    Furnished with big recliners, satin couches and footstools, no library duty or bulletin assembly, nothing to print or staple, not one thing to fold and mail, telephone lists will be outlawed.

    However a finger snap will bring, cool drinks and gourmet dinners, and rare treats fit for a king.

  • Decompartmentalize. I realize that this is not a word, but rather it is a description. To the believer it is a calling and a directive of how life should be lived. To the one who is seeking something greater and better in life, it is a statement and an invitation to a life of purpose and belonging. To fully understand the necessity and calling to decompartmentalize, we must first understand the real threat of compartmentalizing our lives.

  • We would all agree that we are living in stressful times.  The threat of terrorism added to living in this technical age results in stress on every side.  Many people endure life, while many others are living a joyous life.

    Paul’s words to the Philippians gives us some steps for managing stress and having joy in our lives (4:4-8). ”Rejoice in the Lord always” (4:4). Is this possible?  Listen to Paul’s strategy.

  • Thought for the week: Ships don’t sink because of the water around them. Ships sink because of the water that gets in them. Don’t let what’s happening around you get inside you and weigh you down.

    Way to go Denver Broncos on winning the 50th Super Bowl.  We had our annual Super Bowl party with pizza, sausage balls, little franks and chips and dips. It was really just an excuse to pig out.
