  •  Many of us think of our “bucket” lists with a wistful eye toward sandy beaches, cruises to ports unknown or helicopter rides. For Joseph Kareth, a 94-year-old Hosparus patient, his dream trip included a much shorter and simpler journey.  He wanted to go to his own basement. With the help of his Hosparus nurse Melissa Griffin and certified nursing assistant Jorge Rosabal, Joseph recently made it down a flight of stairs for the first time in nearly a year. 

  •  Contentment is learned. It does not come instantaneously. The situations of life are the schoolhouse for learning contentment. 

    But some people never learn to be contented and the result is their lives are unfulfilled, unsatisfied and unhappy.

  •  It has been more than 150 years since the first battle of the Civil War, but it is estimated that thousands of individuals spend billions of dollars each year to participate in or attend Civil War reenactments.

    Kim Miller-Spillman, an associate professor in the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, has spent her career researching historical re-enactors to learn the importance of period clothing in recreating historical events and in their lives.

  •  Do not speak evil of one another brethren. (James 4:11)

    “Do not speak evil” covers more than slander, extending to any form of speaking against someone, including truth, if it is delivered in a harsh and unkind way.  Speech is evil when it is motivated by the desire to harm others or to exalt oneself. 

    Sin cannot be understood or described without reference to self-centeredness. “The flesh” is self-focused.  Carnality is self-expression in behalf of a person’s own interests.
