  • A preacher and I were talking the other day about how Jesus Christ was coming back to judge his church. A lot of church members think Jesus is coming back to judge the world. The way I read my bible, the church is supposed to set an example to the world. But it seems we have failed in many ways.

  • I don’t know about you, but I love the feeling of fresh sheets on the bed. It just feels clean and fresh. After just one or two nights, those sheets loose that fresh scent and crisp feel. That is sort of the way it is with us. We may walk with the Lord this morning, but by tonight the linen is not quite so fresh. The dust and dirt of the day have soiled our lives and we need a refreshing.

  • Colossians 3:1-11 – If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

    For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

  • Early winter is an optimum time to prepare your spring-calving herd for reproductive success. Adequate nutrition from about 50 to 80 days prior to calving is critical to maximizing a cow’s ability to rebreed and maintain a 365-day calving interval. If a cow gets inadequate nutrition or is thin at calving and breeding, she will take longer to come into heat and will require more services to conceive.

  • Most of us know that the popular spice ginger comes from the root of the plant. Well, really it is a rhizome, and the hot and pungent flavor has more to it than just a taste sensation.

    Ginger got its name from the Sanskrit word sringavera which means “root shaped like a horn.” It has been used by the Romans, the Chinese, Europeans and others for thousands of years and has been endowed with an herbal and medicinal reputation. The ginger that we use as a spice comes from zingiber officinale one of many different species of this flowering tropical plant.

  • One of my favorite Christmas stories is A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. In it we have a miser named Scrooge who not only doesn’t know the meaning of Christmas but goes out of his way to make everyone as miserable as he is. He is visited by a ghost and three spirits of Christmas, the past, present, and future. After this experience he is a changed man, Charles Dickens wrote in his epilogue that if there was anyone who could keep Christmas the whole year through it was Scrooge.

  • Billie W. Wade, CEO of Citizens Union Bank, recently returned from a meeting of America’s Community Bankers Council, a division of the American Bankers Association in Washington, D.C. Composed of approximately 100 bankers representing all 50 states, the Council meets twice each year to advise the Association on issues affecting the nation’s community banks and their customers.
