  • 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.

    Lincoln Days

    Quilt Show

  • Thought for the week: While on this road called life, you have to like the good with the bad, smile when you’re sad, love what you got and remember what you had, always forgive but never forget, learn from mistakes but never regret, people change, things go wrong, but just remember the ride goes on!

    Sure hope the weather is good for Lincoln Days. Not too hot with no rain. I attended the 2016 Quilt Show at Pritchard Community Center last Friday. They had some beautiful quilts there. Almost makes me want to try to make one, key word try.

  • Last Saturday was the annual Williams, Johnson, Smith and Dixon Family Reunion at First Baptist. The Sunday morning services on September 25 was Old Fashion Days at First Baptist. Various members and friends were dressed in their old attire of the past. After the service, the culinary department had a “soul food dinner” for those in attendance.

    Lane Lincoln held their Youth Sunday on September 25 where they had outdoor services for the community. Dinner was served after the service.

    Have you ever seen a witness appear in court? Why is a witness called to show up and speak out?

    Witnesses have something important to say. They have a responsibility to truthfully share what they have experienced. I am sure it can be an intimidating experience in a courtroom, with some opposed to one’s testimony, but when we are summoned by an authority we must testify.

  • Great teachers make great schools.  Since this is true you and I as Christians go to the best school in the world.  There are no entrance fees, we don’t have examinations and we don’t even have to leave home.  Jesus is the Master Teacher and we are invited to sit at His feet and learn life’s most important lessons.
