  • Blessed are the peacemakers. Matthew 5:9

    If you want God’s blessing, become a peacemaker. Jesus didn’t say, “Blessed are the peace-lovers,” because everyone loves peace. Nor did he say, “Blessed are the peaceable,” who are never disturbed by anything. No, he said, “Blessed are those who work for peace.”

    Peacemakers are rare because peace-making is hard work. But it’s worth it. Relationships are always worth restoring.

  • The new MyPlate icon is a simplified dietary plan from the U. S. Department of Agriculture and Department of Health and Human Services and covers balancing calories, increasing certain foods (fruits, vegetables, whole grains) and decreasing others (items with high sodium, solid fats, added sugar and sugary drinks). The message also covers eating the correct number of calories and increasing activity.
    Here are highlights of the new MyPlate suggestions:

  • After more than a year of construction the new Sunrise Manor Nursing Home is nearing completion.
    The Signature Healthcare-managed facility will host an open house for the community 2-5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 28.
    Employees will “likely be stationed throughout the building to guide visitors as they explore the new facility,” according to Signature’s media relations manager Ben Adkins. There will be a short program, but “overall, pretty informal.”

  • Michaela Rock of Sonora qualified for the Coca Cola Talent Classic semi finals in February at the University of Louisville. She will perform a solo Aug. 21 in the contest at the Kentucky State Fair.

  • Roscoe and Phyllis Duncan celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on Aug. 15, 2011.

    They were married in a double wedding ceremony with Gordon and Norma Conner on Aug. 15, 1951, at Buffalo Baptist Church by Bro. John Wall.

    They have one daughter, Donna Coffey, three grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

    The anniversary was celebrated with a family dinner on Aug. 13.

  • Ryan and Holly Coffey of London announce the birth of their son Tyler Ryan Coffey.

    Tyler Ryan was born at 5:56 p.m. April 2, 2011 at Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital, Somerset. He weighed 8 pounds 11 ounces and was 21.5 inches long.

    Maternal grandparents are Chuck and Mona Tyler of Somerset.

    Paternal grandparents are Tom and Donna Coffey of Buffalo.

    Great-grandparents are Roscoe and Phyllis Duncan of Buffalo and Willis and Ada Coffey of Mount Vernon.

  • Moses, David, Paul and many other Bible characters were used by God to accomplish his will. God still uses individuals today when they place their lives in his hands.

    What are some of the characteristics of persons God uses today? From the Apostle Paul we learn God uses one who wants to know God in his fullness. Paul sought to forget what was behind him and press forward. Here was a man who showed by life and word that he was sold out to Jesus.

    When you walked into Paul's life you would say, "Paul lives to know God."

  • One day, the sun stood still (Joshua 10:10-14). There has been no day like that, before it or after it, the first time man commanded the solar system to stand still and it obeyed.

    At another time, God hearkened to Hezekiah and turned the solar system backward 10 degrees.

    God worked a powerful miracle in response to Joshua’s authority in prayer. In fact, Joshua spoke directly to the sun and moon, obviously at God’s command, and the delayed sunset allowed Israel to have revenge upon their enemies.

  • Many believe the Bible teaches it is wrong to be wealthy. They think "money is the root of all evil."

    But the Bible does not teach that. The Bible says, "the love of money is the root of all evil" (I Timothy 6:10).

    God is not opposed to wealth. When you read the Bible you are aware of many wealthy individuals. In today's way of figuring wealth Abraham would have been a millionaire. Then there is David, Solomon, Job and many other financially well-to-do Bible characters. It is the misuse of and the love of money that causes problems.
