  • Aunt Pat would have been 74 on Dec. 7.

    Uncle Al, Pat's husband, died many, many years ago. They were only married 13 years and Pat had no children. My husband was her closest kin.

    During the 17 years we've lived in Florida, 40 miles from Pat, my husband cared for Pat as if he were her son. She loved him and depended on him. He loved her, even if she did drive him nuts.

  • They had just arrived on Galapagos Island when the phone call came from a local hospital.

  • (Note: This is adapted from my book, "Prayers God Always Answers.")

    My soul was in anguish. I knew exactly how King David felt when he wrote his laments, wondering how long he had to wait for God to answer his prayers.

    I was 11 years old and I had been waiting my entire life to shave my legs. However, my mom said I needed to wait, but what do moms know? I had a forest growing on my lower limbs that needed razing - right then.

  • The Taylor County Cattleman's Association and the Taylor County 4-H Council is starting a new livestock project for the youth of Taylor County. This livestock project is called a Heifer Chain for Beef and Dairy.

  • (Note: This is my annual Thanksgiving psalm.)

    Holy God,

    Where do I even begin to tell you how grateful I am that you, God of all creation, should stoop to bless my life?

    I am deeply humbled, aware of my unworthiness and your great mercy. Thank you seems puny and insufficient, yet it's all I have to give you.

    Thank you, Lord, for capri pants and Gerber daisies. For thick, warm towels fresh from the dryer, "two-point" tapioca pudding and pumpkin marmalade.

  • The Kentucky Baptist Convention's Committee on Nominations recently announced its nominations for members of the Kentucky Baptist Convention Mission Board and the boards of several affiliated institutions and agencies.

    The nominations were approved by messengers of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, who convened their annual meeting Nov. 13-14 at Severns Valley Baptist Church.

    Local Board appointments are as follows:

  • Danny Pace, Bible teacher and assistant at Kentucky Christian School, shares the story of Jacob's Ladder with second graders.

  • These chilly night I find myself looking for soup recipes. I try new ones every year, but more often than not, I go back to the same old favorites. Here are two of them.

    The first one, Sausage-Bean Chowder, is a long-time favorite of my family. It smells absolutely wonderful when it's cooking and is really delicious. It tastes even better the second day. My dad used to like this soup so much he requested it for a Christmas present one year. I made and froze 4 quarts, and he carried it back to Illinois in a cooler, where he rationed it and made it last a long time.

  • Some say that the biggest shopping days of the year are the weekend after Thanksgiving. Here are some suggestions for less stressful times after this weekend.

    During the holiday season, people often throw caution to the wind and become impulsive buyers. After all, there are parties that require decorations, favors and specials foods. The desire to give gifts often extends to a long list of co-workers, friends and family.

  • Last November someone wrote me a letter - no return address, no signature. I've been holding on to it all year, reading it every so often.

    It's a heartbreaking letter and I hadn't known how to respond to it. I'm not sure I do now, but I feel compelled to tell this woman's story. Maybe by sharing it, the letter writer will find some peace or happiness or whatever it is that she needs most.

  • When my youngest daughter was 15 she began an unrelenting campaign to pierce her eyebrow.

    She once handed me seven pages of documented Internet research, complete with a list of "35 Reasons to Say Yes." ("It will not harm any living creature." "I won't wear the eyebrow ring to any formal occasion." "It is better than piercing my tongue.")

    I found it amusing and I admired her persistence - until the Day of the Pringles.

    We were at the market and as she followed me up and down the aisles, she jabbered non-stop about getting her eyebrow pierced.
