  • Herald’s story leads to new family practice

    An article in The LaRue County Herald News has led to the creation of a new family practice.

    Gwen Thomas, an advanced registered nurse practitioner and office administrator for E’town Family Practice, said the story, which detailed the shortage of medical practitioners in the area, sparked an idea.

    “We read the article and we thought it’s awful that people cannot get the help they need so we created a family practice here to help with that,” said Thomas.

  • Our short lives are secure in God’s hands

    At different times Mother would say, “Phyllis, one night you will go to bed young, but when you get up the next morning, you will be old.”  

    I honestly didn’t understand what she meant until now. Time flies.

    Our aging is secure in God’s hands. Looks, health and circumstances change with time. In order to stay young, many will try to cling to outward beauty. They want to have their youthful strength and accomplishments made while working.

    God is our creator and he has made each of us according to his plan.

  • This word is small, but meaningful

    Small words sometimes have great meaning. Such is the word “till” in 1 Corinthians 11:26.

    Paul says, “For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He come.” The apostle says the Lord’s Supper is a reminder against man’s forgetfulness.

    “Till” is a waiting word. Jesus said to his disciples in John 14:1-3 “I go to prepare a place for you … I will come again.” We are to wait until he returns. He left earth, but he will return.
