  • COLUMN: Your works can be traced by your fingerprints

     We recently had the privilege of keeping our 15 month old grandson, Ty, for a week while his parents were on a mission trip. What a joy to have days and days with this sweet little one.

    After we returned home after delivering him back to his anxious parents, I was cleaning the house and noticed multiple fingerprints and smudges all over the place. Between Ty and his cousins, Layla and Bridgett, every section of my house had been explored and traces of their paths were left everywhere.  

  • COLUMN: Be imitators of Christ

     Paul tells the Corinthian Christians, "Be an imitator of me as I am an imitator of Jesus Christ" (1 Corinthians 11:1). He was trying to give the people a visual example of how to live the Christian life but not putting himself on a pedestal saying that he was perfect and had arrived.

    Paul realized that the greatest motivational principle in the world is a good example. In communication we are taught that 89 percent of what we learn is through the eyes.

  • Notes from Groundhog Hill: Bertha goes to the Fair

     Sometimes, when picking zucchini, any attentive yet error-proned gardener may overlook one because the huge leaves can hide a bloom rendering it invisible ... for weeks. That hidden bloom forms a zucchini and before you know it, you have a Big Bertha.

    Big Bertha and siblings ... the one zucchini you miss picking until it's way too late.

    The first thought that pops into the mind is, "Wow! That's big."
