  • All of us face the passing of time every day.  Sometimes it seems to fly by, and at other times it seems to drag.  Sometimes we can’t wait for some big event, and other times we wait in fearful anticipation.  But either way, there is one truth we must all face, our time is limited.  We have 24 hours in a day, seven days in a week, 52 weeks in a year, but we don’t know if we have tomorrow.

  • Mark 4:2-8 – And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine, Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.

  • With graduation from the University of Kentucky quickly approaching, I was faced with a decision. Should I hop right into the job market, or should I take some time to investigate other things that I had aspired to do? I chose to delay the job search and instead apply for an unpaid internship in Washington D.C. with U.S. Congressman Brett Guthrie. I’m glad I did. The experience was outstanding.
