  • Thought for the week: There is always, always, always something to be thankful for!

    Saturday night I went to the Sawyer Brown concert with cousins Rosetta LaFollette and Debbie Williams, Aunt Aggie Newton and Mildred Masterson in Renfro Valley, we loved it. It was my first time to see Sawyer Brown. I took advantage of the car wash that Relay for life team, Viers Crew, had on Saturday morning. I so hate that job and they did an awesome job.

  • Rosleen Price was admitted to Hardin Memorial Hospital on Sunday April17. She remains a patient, but she is improving. Her room number is 3011 (the new addition).

  • As for me and my house we are planning a trip to our state capitol May 4 for a noon-time prayer service of Kentuckians led by Franklin Graham for spiritual renewal in our nation.  Mr. Graham is holding prayer services in each of our 50 state capitals.  It would be wonderful to have thousands at the gathering on May 4.  This will be the day before the National Day of Prayer services held locally and through out the United States.

  • “Bless your heart.” “God bless you.” “May the Lord bless you.” “I am blessed.”

    Have you ever thought about the word “bless”? It really isn’t a common, everyday sort of word. It is a churchy/Bible word. Even though we may use it a lot, primarily among allergy-afflicted sneezers, I am not sure we could easily define the word we are using.

  • Recently, I was reading the story Jesus told in Luke 10 about the Good Samaritan.  Back in the 1950s, Dr. C. Roy Angell, who pastored Central Baptist Church in Miami was the inspirational speaker one summer at Ridgecrest Baptist Assembly in North Carolina.  I purchased one of his books that had a chapter dealing with this scripture.  Dr. Angell was a master storyteller.  He said the story of the Good Samaritan illustrated three philosophies or ways of life.

  • DNA testing has been used in our country to determine guilt or innocence in criminal cases, recognize the father of a child, discover family origins, and diagnose certain disorders or diseases just to name a few areas of use. Likewise, when we take a moment to test our spiritual DNA, we are able to truly examine our relationship with Christ.
