  • Hiding behind masks

    Masks are everywhere today. On Main street last week, kids in costumes were searching for candy and goodies. Maybe in your neighborhood you saw a few trick or treaters. You may have kids or grandkids who enjoy dressing up. Maybe you even put on a plastic mask or a wig or a pair of goofy glasses just to have a little fun. It’s just that time of year.

    My Facebook page is full of photos of masks and costumes, some elaborate, some simple, but all hiding the reality.

  • Point of no return

    A large number of people read this newspaper, in Spencer County and beyond. But you are reading this column right now, you are not a crowd or a large number of people. You are an individual. That’s how God sees you - as an individual.

  • Solid as a rock

    A few years ago I had a chance to travel to Marble Colorado and visit the marble mines there. Now, when I think of marble, I think of the monuments in cemeteries, the decoration on courthouses, things like that. In fact, the marble from this area was used to build the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery.

  • Knowing your enemy

    When I was 17 and 18, I had the privilege of traveling with the circus. It was a great experience, one I hope to never repeat. When I went back home, I looked at my cat. It was not a special cat, just a cat. But I remembered how they trained those big cats to jump through hoops of fire. I looked at my little cat, and said, “Maybe you will never jump through hoops, but I bet I can train to do a few tricks.” I’ve always believed cats were smarter than dogs. After all it’s been said, “dogs have masters, cats have staff.”

  • Be watchful of our words

    Words are funny things, at least the way we use them in America. For example, if I take a bow on stage I am doing one thing, if I take a bow off a package, it is something entirely different. Not only does it mean something different, we even pronounce it differently.
