Earnest Conqueror

In a recent conversation I was asked about the meaning of a word. In my arrogance and need to appear in control I answered to the best of my ability but did not in fact look the word up. Luckily the friend I was speaking to did look it up, and as he read the words on the page each one struck my proud heart like a rock against a thick glass window slowly cracking the glass until it shattered. The…

Earning a Living or Earning Life Eternal?

I desire recognition for my 'hard' work. It's interesting to me, how as human beings we want our accomplishments to be recognized, we work for acknowledgment. Yet, as Christians we strive to be content and accept that we will never be able to earn the grace and gift of salvation which God has freely given us.

In my career I work to earn promotions and rewards. I even work in relationships…

Ebb abd Flow or just Flow?

Ebb and flow. Two terms used to describe the movement of the earth's oceans during the course of the average day. The process was immortalized in the lines; "First the tide rushes in, plants a kiss on the shore, then rolls out to the sea and the sea is very still once more," from the song "Ebb Tide." But have you ever seen the effects of the flow?

The flow is the high tide that seeks its way…

Effective Communication

Okay, it's time for a show of hands. How many of you are members of the "Grammar Police" and caught my colossal gaff in yesterday's column? That's fine. You can raise them. My feelings won't be hurt one bit. I made a mistake in grammar and it got through my proofread. I saw it right after I sent it out yesterday. So I figure a number of you also caught it. If you didn't, let me point it out…

Ego Boost: You Know You Want One.

I would like to think that I am a strong independent woman who isn't effected by the attention, or lack their of, from the opposite sex but this thought is not the reality. When I am not getting my security from God I often chose to get it from men. This does not mean that I seek out attention from sketchy men necessarily, sometimes this can be the attention of Godly men. The attention does not…

Elbow Sneezes

In Kindergarten, we teach the kids to sneeze and cough into their elbows so they won't spray the entire class with the germ of the day. It also keeps those touchy little hands a bit cleaner.

As of this writing, some have not mastered the technique. This week our class used up two boxes of tissues and five kids were out with a stomach virus - and flu season doesn't even begin for a couple of…


Every Sunday morning at the Minorsville Christian Chruch I know that at least one person will be paying attention to me as I preach. Every Sunday morning this young lady's eyes follow me as I preach. Her head comes to attention at the sound of my voice. There are those odd times that she sleeps. But then she is only eleven months old.

Ellie Morgan Hastings was born last year on February 10.…

Embrace the Mystery

We use them on an almost daily basis. They power many infrequently used items and also some that are constanly used. They are batteries. Yeah, the good ole A, AA, AAA, B, C, D and 9 volt. We have them in games, pda's, phones; you name it, batteries power it. Batteries were, for the longest time acredited to the work of Alessandro Volta. Hence the term, "volt", to describe their power.


Emergency Kit

Now that we live in Georgetown, Kentucky there is one thing that I will probably never use but still have. I have an emergency kit that was sent to me as a resident of Madison County who lived in close proximity to the chemical weapons dump that the United States Army maintains just off Route 25 South of Richmond. I can remember first moving into the area and seeing this little box that I was told…
