  • This morning as I was walking our dog, I noticed a lot of worms along the sidewalk and in the road. You’ve probably seen them from time to time too. Some of them are still wiggling a little, but many have sort of dried up. This morning I walked past one that was still moving a little and then I stopped. I went back and picked it up and tossed it in the grass thinking, “Well, at least that one will make it!”

  • Just last week I was at the funeral of a friend of ours. His name was Howard Jones. His son and his wife have been good friends of ours since we moved to Louisville twenty years ago. Howard made an impression on everyone he came in contact with. From his sense of humor, to his love for the Lord, you knew God’s grace was upon him.

  • Read Acts 3:11-26

    In the game of baseball there is a special position called a pinch hitter.

    A pinch hitter is a person that comes into the game to bat in place of another player, who is usually not a very good batter. One way a coach can use this position to his advantage in a baseball game, is if he needs a really good hit, in a very critical time in the game - he can replace the poor hitter with the really good pinch hitter.

    Is it safe for seniors with dementia to drive, and if so, when should they stop? My dad has early Alzheimer’s disease but still drives himself around town just fine.
    Looking Ahead

  • If you don’t have the money to pay the taxes you owe, there are a few different ways you can clear your debt with the IRS.
    First things first, however: If you didn’t file a tax return because you don’t have the money to pay what you owe, you’ll need to call the IRS immediately, before your error is compounded. Call 1-800-829-1040 and ask to set up a payment plan.

  • Mulch can be beneficial in many ways on plant beds, around foundation shrubs and other gardening locations in your yard, but mold can threaten its benefits.
    In landscape beds and gardens, mulch helps control weeds, prevent extreme soil temperature fluctuation, decrease water evaporation and improve drainage. Mulch also reduces mower and string trimmer damage on shrubs and trees by suppressing vegetation near their trunks. As it decomposes, mulch produces organic materials to improve soil and otherwise benefit plants.
