Patty Craig; A Slice Of Time

Last week, we had some beautiful October weather. It’s time to begin closing down our gardens and plan for next year. I’ve been doing a mental inventory of what needs pruning or trimming, which garden-related chores still need to be completed, and wondering whether to add more spring bulbs.


Don Locke: Lookin Thru Bifocals

But for the lack of a button:

I may have shared this sometime in the past, if so, I’d like to hear it again. Maybe you would too.


Cheryl Hughes: Think Ahead

Garey says that he and his sister, Charlotte, were admonished by their parents to “Think ahead” to the point that neither Garey nor Charlotte looks behind themselves.  I can attest to that.  Both leave a wake of destruction in their paths that is sometimes perilous to those comi


Jarrod Jacobs: Be not rash with thy mouth

The first seven verses of Ecclesiastes 5 remind us to be careful about the words we say. As we read this passage, we see that “a multitude of words” is associated with foolish behavior (Ecc. 5:3), vanity (v. 7), evil (v. 1), and sin (v. 6). The point being that God did not acknowledge their “speaking.” Most men see through the tactics of someone who “talks too much”!


Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

Most everyone has added something to their repertoire during this time of Covid.  There is also something to be said for subtracting things that, let’s face it, just aren’t working for you anymore.  Whether it be a relationship, or, for the purposes of this article, social media.


Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

My grandson’s recent wedding turned my thoughts to our marital traditions. Indya Moore said, “Tradition is nothing but ancestral peer pressure,” and W. Somerset Maugham said, “Tradition is a guide and not a jailer” ( Although each wedding is different, tradition has a role in weddings. Five wedding traditions are considered below.


Cheryl Hughes: Who's to blame?

When our kids were young, Garey was forever blaming them for his missing green comb. 

                “Cheryl, I can’t find my green comb!” Garey would yell from the bathroom.  I would hear him rummaging through the drawer where it lived.  “I bet the kids took it,” he would mutter under his breath, as he continued to search.


Jarrod Jacobs: A Good Name

Solomon declares that “a good name is better than precious ointment” (Ecc. 7:1). He wrote identical words in Proverbs 22:1. What makes a good “name” so important? Why would we want a good “name”?

First, understand that a good “name” means a good reputation. Ask yourself: “What do people see when they see me?” Be honest! Do people see a hypocrite or a genuine person? Do people see someone trying to serve God or self? Our actions indeed speak louder than our words! We are known by what we do (Prov. 20:11; Matt. 7:16).


OPINION: Trump, the Disruptor, Battles On

I often think about how many new, young drivers feel about their first car.  I am not referring to families with a lot of money who can start out their youngster in a brand new Hummer.  For most regular folks, the plan is to scrape together whatever they can and buy whatever they can reasonably afford to purchase, insure, and fuel.  Thus, for many 16-17 year-olds, their “new” car leaves a lot to be desired.  It ha


Andy Sullivan: Against The Grain

The final entry into my network and app origins series is WWE Network.  The Network launched on February 24, 2014 in the United States and August 12, 2014 in Asia.  A year later, the network debuted in the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Italy, India and the Middle East.  2016 saw the network debut in Japan, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
