    Have you ever noticed how much you think about yourself? Everyone does it. You don’t have to try to. It just happens. Why?

    Have you ever noticed how natural it is to compare yourself with others? To look down on others in order to think better of yourself? Why does that happen so easily and so often?

    Have you ever noticed how easy it can be to go through a day with little thought, time, and attention devoted to God through His Word and prayer? Why are we so oblivious to God and self-focused?

  • Carolyn Smith here, George’s wife.  I asked permission of the editor to allow me to pre-empt my husband’s column this week in order to tell his readers that May 20 was the 60th anniversary of his ordination to the Gospel ministry.  

    We are so thankful that God has used him all these years and continues to do so, as he still pastors a church and continues to write this devotional column for three newspapers.

  • For the second year, a passel of plastic purple pigs and their sponsors raised $2,144.06 toward the LaRue County Relay for Life goal of $50,000. Each pig, adopted by a family had its own story, but the fundraising contest by the Living Strong team generated many Facebooks posts, adventures, and followings for the four contest areas- Big Bucks, Hefty Hog, Most Traveled, and Best Dressed Pig.

  • The LaRue County Library will be kicking off the summer with their annual Teddy Bear’s Picnic at Lincoln Farm at 11 a.m. on May 31.
