  • As I have mentioned in previous columns, Romans 12:1 talks about how the renewing of your mind is a continual process. It’s not something that happens all at once. If you continually renew your mind with the Word of God you will be able to overcome obstacles you never thought possible.
    For instance: When fear comes your way, you can give into it or say, “God does not give me the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7) When anxiety comes your way, you say “I am more than a conqueror!” (Romans 8:37)

  • The other day I was looking at something on the car when I noticed that a couple of the tires were really worn down. I don’t know how long they had been on there, but I think about 4 years or so, and for me that is a lot of miles!
    Those tires carried me to church, to the homes of friends and family, they carried me back and forth to hospitals and to grocery stores, they even carried me on vacations from time to time! It’s no wonder they got a little worn out. A lot of miles, a lot of heat, a lot of hard work just carrying someone around every day.

  • Since this week is the anniversary of the Semptember 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and my memory of that horrible date is, and will be, forever indelibly imprinted, I will present a few personal thoughts today.
    As the reports unfolded in the media, that day, we sat in front of the TV and my heart was hurting as never before. Two planes full of passengers were piloted into the two trade towers in New York City? This can’t be! I sat, fixed in my chair, and felt like I couldn’t breathe, my heart beating rapidly. How? Why? What’s next?

  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    How can you know when someone has a gambling problem? Since my father passed away a couple years ago, my 76-year-old mother spends a lot of time at an Indian casino near her house playing slot machines.

  • Kentucky’s forests are home to one of the most diverse hardwood species mixes in the United States, second only to Florida. With more than 12 million acres of forests, a rainbow of color is on display in Kentucky almost every fall.

  • When attempting to grow tropical plants we are met with the challenge of mimicking their native habitat which is difficult inside our homes; we can allow Mother Nature to take care of some of this, outside, for now. Move some of your orchids, holiday cacti and clivia outdoors for the remainder of the season because we can initiate bud set through managing day length and nighttime temperatures.

  • My husband/wife does not “measure up.”

  • I’m always sad to see the state fair come to a close. I come from a performing arts background. My favorite acts are the variety acts, magicians; jugglers; ventriloquists etc. Magicians are my favorites because they can make the unbelievable, believable. One must realize they are just entertainers and nothing more. They are performing illusions. Even people like Chris Angel, David Blaine and even David Copperfield, will tell you there is nothing supernatural about what they do. They are entertainers and they are really good at it.

  • Once upon a time, I was an electrician; I ran wires, installed lighting and appliances, rewired buildings, all sorts of things. At the same time I never really considered myself all that handy around the house. I can do a little carpentry, but that measure twice cut once thing has caught me out a few times. For some reason plumbing and I don’t get along at all!

  • I heard a story once about a mother and father camping with their daughter in the wilderness. In the middle of the night a large bear reached into the camper and pulled the girl out. The little girl screamed “Daddy, help me!”.

  • Nearly everyone who has driven on Garrard (GARE’-ed) Street knows that the Spier (SPEAR) House is historic. The two-story log house at the corner of Garrard and Washington Streets may have been the first structure in town and was a lodging place for weary travelers for many years.  It is also well-known that the Stidger house, where Union spy Felix Stidger was born and where ice man Bud Mock lived for many years, is also an incredible treasure.
