  • “We should make plans, counting on God to direct us.” Proverbs 16:9

    If you want to change your life for the better, take these steps:

    1) Discern what success really is. When others feel good about you, you’re popular. When you feel good about yourself, you’re successful. Your life’s highest calling always will create the highest level of joy within you. That doesn’t mean it’ll be easy or pain free. Every winner in history paid a price, you will too.

  • Main Street’s annual dinner and concert included a great meal by the South Fork Homemakers, wonderful entertainment by Water’s Edge and a successful silent auction.

    The evening involved a lot of hard work by Main Street volunteers and board members and brought us a combined profit for tickets and auction of over $1,400, after expenses. That represents a special effort by some people to obtain the donated items.

  • All Pamida retail stores and Pamida pharmacies now accept Flexible Spending Account cards from their customers. FSA cards offer a convenient payment option for eligible medical and wellness items in their stores.

    An FSA account, also referred to as a flex plan or reimbursement account is an employer-sponsored program that allows individuals to set aside pre-tax money for eligible medical expenses.

  • The Apostle Paul on his visit to Athens saw shrines erected to many gods. Just in case they missed one, they had one to “The Unknown god.”

    Today’s unknown God may be the Holy Spirit. We know about God the Father, who created the world and holds it in his hands. We know God the Son, who came, lived, died, arose and ascended to the right hand of the Father to intercede for us.

    But I fear the average Christian knows little about the Holy Spirit.

    The Bible has the Holy Spirit as co-equal with God the Father and God the Son.

  • “Stop allowing yourselves to be ... unsettled” John 14:27

    Some kids at summer camp were discussing creation. One asked, “If everything has a purpose, how come God made poison ivy?”

    Another replied, “Because he knows there are some things we should keep our hands off.”

    Keeping your hands off certain things isn’t easy, especially when you’re insecure or controlling by nature.

    “But sometimes my partner drives me crazy.” Maybe you drive them crazy too.
