  • Newspaper theft a costly choice

    When it comes right down to it, we all make choices everyday that greatly impact our lives and the lives of others whether we realize it or not. Last week I made a choice to help with our vacation Bible school at our church. The choice was easy. The decisions I had to make throughout the week, not so much.

    We talked a lot about making choices. Sometimes we make good choices, and sometimes we make bad choices.
