  • Bloom like an amaryllis

    My wife, Lori, and I are not good with houseplants. When she brings home a new plant, I shake my head, knowing the plant's likely demise. I want to pull it aside and whisper, "I'm so sorry she bought you. I promise I'll pray for you."

    If plants could muster a police force, they would charge Lori and me with negligent homicide.

    So last year, when some well-meaning friends gave us an amaryllis for Christmas, I thanked them kindly.

    And as soon as they left, I knelt by their gift and offered last rites for it.

  • Memorial Day a time to remember and appreciate freedoms we have been given

    One of our greatest presidents and Kentucky native, Abraham Lincoln, once said of our country, "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." That quote comes to mind as we gather in the coming days to honor those who have fought and died in wars foreign and domestic to continue to guarantee the freedom that makes us the envy of other nations and their people around the world.

  • Reflecting on Memorial Day

    Memorial Day is a significant holiday in the state of Kentucky in a variety of ways. Broadly, it is the unofficial kickoff to summer with the school year winding down, vacationers descending in droves to our lakes and rivers, and warm weather and sunshine becoming the norm. While many use this holiday as a time to travel back to their hometowns for reunions and family cookouts, others use it as a time to pay respect to their lost loved ones by taking flowers to their gravesites.
