  •  “It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better place that I go to than I have ever known.”  Would reading this final line from A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens compel you to read this piece of classic literature for the first time?

    What about this first line from The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner? “Through the fence, between the curling flower spaces, I could see them hitting.” So many time-honored books to choose from at the library.

  • Vitamin D has gotten a lot of media coverage lately as various studies have tied normal levels of vitamin D to certain health benefits and lack of the vitamin to certain diseases. While many of these current studies provide conflicting messages, it is generally understood that vitamin D is needed for optimal health. It helps us absorb calcium and phosphorus, so we can have strong bones and teeth.

  • It should bring great comfort to know that God is always there ready and eager to help his children. While we live in a fear-filled world, remember that Jesus said to his followers, “I am with you to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)

    Men are afraid of life, death and judgment. Many are concerned with the loss of job, money, health, friends, old age, poverty, loneliness or a thousand and one other things. Fear haunts many individuals.
