Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

I totally overlooked International Women’s Day on March 8th. It’s not a holiday or a celebration that is on my radar. However, I do respect the accomplishments of many people. Among those are seven women who have lived a part of their lives during my lifetime. Their accomplishments (information from Wikipedia) have in some ways improved life outside their personal circles.

Cheryl Hughes; Disassembly

I took apart the swing set in our back yard, and I look like I’ve been beat with a baseball bat, but I was tired of mowing around it.  In fairness to Garey, he would have done it had I asked, but he works a full-time job and keeps up with our farm, as well.  Besides, I’ve helped him take eno

Jarrod Jacobs: The Gospel of Christ

The gospel of Christ is something that deserves our respect. Paul said, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek” (Rom. 1:16). Jesus Himself spent three years preaching the gospel to a lost and dying world (Matt. 4:23). Why must the gospel of Christ be preached today? The New Testament makes it very clear.

OPINION: Liberty is not a luxury

“Give me liberty or give me death,” Patrick Henry thundered.

Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

In my opinion, the notes function in the iPhone is one of the greatest functions ever invented.  I could say the same about Amazon’s Alexa device.  It is especially useful for people like me who need a little assistance remembering appointments, etc.  I guess everyone needs help remembering those things.  If not, day planners wouldn’t be as good of a seller as they are, well, were.

Cheryl Hughes: Balance of Nature

My bluebirds are gone.  The bluebirds that have raised their young in a house made by my kids when they were in elementary school.  The bluebirds I have watched each spring for years flit from the fence post down into their house—the house that faces east, the direction they prefer—to check on their little ones.  

I have watched from my dining room window, hoping they were just late, asking out loud, “Where are they?  Why don’t they come back?”

Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

Since I’ve started my spring cleaning, I’ve thought about how things have changed at my house. When I worked in education, I deep-cleaned my house in June – after the end of the school year. Now that I’m retired, I deep-clean in April and May, trying to complete the work before the school year ends. I’ve also given up some tasks and changed or taken on other chores.

Naaman The Leper

II Kings 5:1-14 records the healing of Naaman of Syria. In this text, we learn that Naaman was an honorable man. In verses 2-4, we learn that even his slave girl was concerned about his leprosy. She wanted this honorable man healed. The young girl understood how powerful God is and stated that if Naaman was in Samaria, he could be healed. She was not afraid of speaking of the power of Jehovah to these heathen people.

Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

Last Thursday, I was listening to Plash Phelps’ show on ‘60’s on 6 and he mentioned that roller skating was seeing a big resurgence during the pandemic.  That made me wonder what other things were making a comeback during Covid.  Some might surprise you.  Some may not.  You are probably using quite a few of them.
