  • Facing Whatever

    Recently the devotion said that trouble will come.  I’m thankful for the positive response by some readers and want to add some additional thoughts on the subject for handling trouble.  How we respond to things that come into our lives is very important. Our response will reveal our character.  We can be all smiles in the sunshine, but the dark days and times of trouble reveals our true inner self. Will we weather the storms because we have done a good job in building on the proper foundation and used good material in construction?

  • Reflecting on 9/11

    On Sunday morning, our nation will pause to remember and reflect upon the tragedy known primarily by its date: 9/11.

    Those of us old enough to remember that Tuesday in 2001 will never forget where we were and what we were doing when we heard the news.  It had the same impact as such other pivotal moments in history, from the attack on Pearl Harbor and President Kennedy’s assassination to Neil Armstrong’s walking on the moon.

  • Robbing from future generations

    That headline makes you think about politics, doesn’t it? Sorry to disappoint, it isn’t politics this time. Robbing future generations is referring to people who rob the rest of us and posterity of valuable information and history. These people literally tear the pages out of history, or from what I’ve seen, carefully cut around the picture and caption they choose. Even more brazen, they walk right out the door with the entire book.

  • Plan early for retirement

    We all want to get the most out of our retirement, but financially that cannot be possible if we don’t start planning for it early in our careers. While retirement may seem like an eternity away for you, it will come sooner than you think.

  • Lost in LaRue - September 7, 2016

    Rainy days are for reflections. Literally. I love reflection in photography. After a rainstorm I find myself looking at puddles to see what the view is looking at the world backwards and upside down. A while back I saw a photograph on the cover of an album that really caught my attention. Granted it was much edgier than mine because the guy was wearing jeans and boots, not fancy duck flats and Capri pants. But nonetheless, I’ve wanted to try to take a reflective photo and when I spotted a rather large puddle on Brooks Road I figured I’d give it a try.
