    Last month the Sunrise Manor Red Hat Society had a very successful fundraiser to raise money for charities. This summer they will have bake sales and yard sales for five organizations: multiple sclerosis, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. The bake sales are indoors in the first floor foyer entrance; yard sales are outside in front of the Nursing Home entrance.

    Sunrise Manor volunteers are proud to assist in past Red Hat fundraising activities. Hats off to the Red Hat Society!

  • Thought for the week: Fools take a knife and stab people in the back. The wise take a knife, cut the cord, and free themselves from the fools!

  • My friend Mike loves kitschy stuff and he loves God. So, anything that combines kitsch and God is a slice of heaven to him.

    Recently, someone gave him a Moses and the Ten Commandments clock. Moses, holding a stone tablet in each arm, is looking off into the distance, all holy-like, and there’s lightning behind him.

    Every hour, but not quite on the hour, the clock will play some light piano music and a voice — could be God, could be Moses — announces a commandment. “Thou shalt not kill” or “Honor your father and mother.”

  • Forgiveness is a beautiful thing, but not everyone expresses it or demonstrates it. But God does! In Christ there is complete forgiveness available. When God forgives, He forgets. “And their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more” (Hebrews 10:17). What grace! What love!

    Some things are a fact and should never be doubted. Forgiveness is a fact. Paul says in Ephesians 1:7, “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses ….”

  • More residents in LaRue, Hart and Hardin counties now have access to 4G LTE – the fastest, most-advanced 4G network – on their Bluegrass Cellular wireless Internet devices.
