  • Thought for the week: Note to Self: Nobody is worth stressing over. Move on, leave people behind, go find yourself, the world is yours. Life goes on. 

    The article by Editor Doug Ponder about the groundhogs was interesting and I hope he has found a solution to the problem.

    This past week has been a very sad week for family and friends on the death of  Dale Daugherty on July 4. I still can’t believe it and it seems like a dream. He is free from any pain. Soar to the stars, my friend.

    Although many consider me to be young, I consider myself to be middle aged at 37, and I’m okay with that (see Psalm 90:10). I love seeing what God is doing among my age group, but I also am concerned by many things I see. Here are some observations and truths from Psalm 71.

    Psalm 71:6 “Upon you I have leaned from before my birth; you are he who took me from my mother’s womb. My praise is continually of you.”

  • The old hymn says, “He is so precious to me.”  In 2 Peter 2, Jesus is referred to as a living stone, a chosen stone, and a precious stone.

    There are two kinds of knowledge — things learned from what we hear and read and then knowledge from actual experience.  Peter speaks out of experience when he says, “Jesus is so precious to me.”

  • Nick and Jessica Pickerell of Hodgenville announce the birth of a son Cayson Dane-Ray Pickerell . He was born on May 28, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. at Hardin Memorial Hospital. He weighed 7 pounds and 9 ounces and was 19 inches long. Cayson is also welcomed home by his big sister, Ella Price Bain.

    Maternal grandparents are Donnie and Vickie Harris and maternal great-grandmother Doris Froedge all of Edmonton. Paternal grandparents are Lisa Pickerell and the late Dane Pickerell of Hodgenville.
