    2016 is gone and 2017 is here. It’s hard to believe! What a year we leave behind! What does the year ahead hold? Only the Lord knows. He is in control, no matter how out of control our years may seem to be. Regardless of what the Lord has ahead, we can be intentional in 2017 to not miss the opportunities the Lord has given us.

  • Have you ever driven on an unfamiliar road in a very dense fog?  It was not a very enjoyable experience, was it?

    You were tense and nervous not knowing what was just a few feet in front of you.

    We could compare this experience to where we are today as we have entered a new year.  2017 is cloaked in mystery. We do not know what is out there in the days ahead.  Someone referred to these as “the unopened tomorrows” that only time will reveal.

  • LaRue County Relay for Life fundraisers

    Parkway Peeps are selling bags of peanuts from Texas Roadhouse for $3 each and they are available at Bird on a Wire.

    Living Strong has plastic Relay for Life Pigs to adopt. Take them on your travels, decorate, and feed them change all benefiting Relay. Contact Kathy Ross at 270-234-3309.

    Circle of Friends has peeler cards to local businesses for sale for $10 each. Contact Regina Childress at 270-725-3182 for more information.

  • Judy Chestnut was admitted to Hardin Memorial Hospital this week and she is now a resident of Sunrise Manor Nursing Home. Rex Thompson was recently admitted to Hardin Memorial Hospital.

    First Baptist- This Saturday, January 7 at noon will be Missionary Meeting.

  • Warm, dry weather may be excellent for picnicking, but definitely not for deer hunting.

    If in doubt, ask veteran hunter and retired LaRue County school teacher Charles Bale of Magnolia.

    “Deer get more active in cool, wet weather,” Bale stated. “You really want it as nasty as you can get it.”

  • Thought for the week:

    I don’t engage in acts of kindness to be rewarded later, I engage in acts of kindness because it makes me feel good to give.

    Early deadlines are not my favorite thing. I’m just happy I remembered.

    Happy New Year to everyone! Remember to be safe and be responsible on New Years Eve.

    Happy Anniversary wishes go out to Richard and Sandy LaFollette, J.K. and Peggy Edwards.
