  • Forgiveness is hard. Our hurts are real, often deep, and frequently long-lasting. Bitterness and un-forgiveness are more present and dangerous than we realize

    Forgiveness Requires Confession. Before we can “get right” with people, we must “be right” with God. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)

  • The Psalmist said, “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24).  This is a prescription for the soul, which can give zest, sparkler and determination to your life. 

    We promise ourselves tomorrow, projecting our joys, opportunities, and even our living into the future.  Some endure the present waiting for a better time tomorrow.  But dreams of tomorrow should not rob us of today.

  • Elizabeth Danielle Sexton and Douglas-Dell Ponder were united in marriage on Saturday, April 22 at Faith Independent Church in Hardyville with Brother H.L. Sexton, grandfather of the bride, officiating.

    The bride is the daughter of Tim and Monica Sexton of Hardyville. The groom is the son of Sharon and the late Eric Ponder of Brodhead.

    Danielle graduated from Spaulding University with a master’s degree in heath science and occupational therapy in 2010. She is employed by Hardin Memorial Hospital where she is an occupational therapist in pediatrics.

  • Thought for the week:  There will always be people in life who treat you wrong. Be sure you thank them for making you strong.

    I hope everyone had a great Mothers Day. We went to Hodgenville Grill for lunch then came home and spent the afternoon on the front porch and enjoyed the beautiful weather as I worked in a new flowerbed. Birthday banners are set to be ready for my birthday on the 19th.

    I can’t believe that it is graduation time again, which happens on my birthday this year. Where did the year go?

  • I hope that all the mothers had a great day on Mother’s Day.

    Congratulations to those who are graduating from high school and college. Students were recognized during morning services this past Sunday morning at First Baptist.

    Leland Thurman has returned home and Finis Walker is a resident at the Sunrise Manor Nursing Home.
