  • The resurrection account of Jesus contains two words that make all the difference in Simon Peter’s life. The women had come to anoint the body of Jesus. They were amazed to find the tomb empty as an angelic being announced Jesus’ resurrection. The two words that make all the difference is “and Peter.”

    “Go tell the disciples ... and Peter” (Mark 16:7).

    Why are these words there? Peter had denied Jesus in the hour of testing and needed to be encouraged. He needed a new beginning and a second chance.

  • They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31.

    Those who hope in the Lord … will soar … like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint. Let’s look at each.

    Soaring: Birds have three ways of flying; flapping their wings to counteract gravity. This isn’t particularly graceful and it’s a lot of work.

  • If the statue of Abraham Lincoln, on the square in Hodgenville since 1909, could speak, what stories would the Great Emancipator have to tell about the many businesses, events, and people on the square that have come and gone through the years?

    Although the statue sits in stately silence, some of the people who’ve been a part of those changes, such as Joel Ray Sprowls, vividly recall many things.

  • Owner and culinary specialist Jamie Warren, along with her mother-in-law Mary Lynn Warren and Sarah Roberts Anthony, prepare fresh-baked cookies, cakes and rolls, as well as soups, hot and cold sandwiches and salads.

    Jamie Warren has lived in the Hodgenville area about 12 years with her husband, Bow. She said she is originally from Powell County where in her large family, large meals were the norm. A typical meal wasn’t much different from one served on Thanksgiving Day.

  • “Now the king was attracted to Esther more than any of the other women, and she won his favor” Esther 2:17.

    One moment of God’s favor can change everything. If you want God’s favor in your life, study the life of Esther.

    1. She prepared herself. “Before a girl’s turn came to go in to King Xerxes, she had to complete 12 months of beauty treatments” Esther 2:12. Study. Preparation. Discipline. Those who pay the price to succeed aren’t lucky, they’re rewarded.

  • One way to having a right attitude toward God begins with honoring him on the Lord’s day. “On the first day of the week we came together to break bread...” (Acts 20:7). The writer of Hebrews says, “Let us not give up meeting together as some are in the habit of doing ...” (Hebrews 10:25).

    Some Christians today give up meeting together, but not for the same reason as the early Christians. No one persecutes us today for getting together. Most of the time our reason is that we have too many irons in the fire.

  • This will be a very interesting year for corn growers in the county. While everyone is talking about the price of corn, farmers are confronted with high costs of fuel, fertilizer, land rent, seed, labor and other input costs. Efficiency is still a key to profitable corn production. A simple corn production calendar follows.

  • Most farmers don’t think much about thistles until they see the plants begin to send up a stalk and then a seed head in late spring. However, now is a good time to inspect pastures for the rosette stage of the plant and take action if needed.

    Thistles are one of the most troublesome weed problems in pastures and hayfields. Thistle plants can interfere with grazing, limit forage availability, and become a major problem for hay production.
