  • Burdens! All have them because burdens are a part of life. They may refer to sickness, accident, financial reverses, or anything that is beyond our control. If we are going to live victoriously, we must learn how to handle our burdens.

    The Psalmist admonishes us in Psalm 55:22 to “Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee.” Whatever comes to us, we are told to lay it upon the Lord. If we do this, God will sustain (keep, nourish, strengthen) us in whatever life hands us.

  • Several LaRue County businesses and organizations were highlighted in the “Best in Kentucky” section of the April issue of Kentucky Living magazine.

    Paula’s Hot Biscuit in Hodgenville was the nonfranchise restaurant winner.

    Lincolns Loft in Hodgenville took third place in the local bookstore category.

  • Sunrise Volunteers

    Two more volunteers are making their voices heard – literally. They have started singing as a duet at 2 p.m. on Mondays in the second floor dining hall. They will sing at least one-half hour each session.

    These two dedicated volunteers – Sybil Skaggs and Susie Milby – are also starting something else that is new: singing in residents’ rooms on a one-on-one basis. Many residents love the visitation and the demand on these ladies’ time is great.

  • What does your local health department do for you?

    Even before the days of plague in Europe and disease epidemics that devastated entire populations, we, as human beings, have searched for ways to make the world a healthier and safer place to live, while at the same time increasing our lifespan. 

  • ….Do not … grieve like the rest of men who have no hope. 1 Thessalonians 4:13

    Several years ago, a dear friend lost her husband unexpectedly. At the funeral home, she asked me to write some articles about grief. I told her I would, but, in truth, I couldn’t write effectively about something I had never truly experienced.
