    Thought for the week: No one is ever old enough to know better!

    Snow flurries on December 9 with what seems like sub zero temperatures, all before first day of winter. That is enough for me, I can move on out and be done with it, just saying.

    Last Friday night was our monthly girls night out with Sandy Ray, Tina Ray, Shannon Ray Whidden and Amy Lesniewski. We went to Mega Caverns Christmas lights under Louisville Zoo. I really enjoyed it and then went to Marks Feed store for supper. I had a great time with everyone.

  • Handel’s Messiah and my boys

    Handel’s Messiah is a beautiful piece that illustrates the story of Jesus Christ from the prophecy and promise of the Redeeming Messiah to His birth “For unto us a child is born” all the way through His life and death ending with the “expectation of our own resurrection” and finally closing with the infamous Hallelujah Chorus. Pair all that with an amazing choir and the Historic Pilcher organ at Saint Catherine’s and you have an amazingly warm and uplifting musical experience. Did I mention this was a free event?
