• A reading from John 16:32-33:“Behold, the hour is coming, indeed it has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home, and will leave me alone. Yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me. I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

  • I usually drive a big red SUV, but sometimes I think I am in the invisible car. A car pulls up to an intersection and then without a blink just pulls out in front of me like I’m not even there! After my heart attack I wonder why they didn’t see me!So what is the problem? Why don’t people see what is right in front of them? For example you probably didn’t notice the extra “the” in the first sentence of this paragraph. Somehow most of us just skim right over it and never even know it was there.

  • Did you know that azaleas and rhododendrons are essentially the same thing? They are both members of the rhododendron genus; they have similar blooms and similar cultural requirements. Some say the primary difference between the two is the number of pollen-bearing stamens: rhododendron have 10 or more per flower and azaleas have only five.

  • Producers should consider supplemental feed to help cattle through the next month to six weeks until grass is growing and is past the “watery” stage. Energy and protein are both crucial.
    Most winters take a toll on cattle, but this winter has been tougher than most. Temperatures have been colder, leading to extended periods of livestock cold stress. Ice and snow cover was relentless and more than most Kentucky beef producers have seen in the past 15 to 20 years.

  • Some of the contents of my files are a mystery to me. I have notes on little pieces of paper that contain names, addresses and phone numbers, or clippings from newspaper that have been in folders for years I can’t scratch my head too much trying to remember who some of the people were or why I saved their addresses or phone numbers because my hair is too thin and it would be dangerous. Some of them aren’t too difficult to decipher, however.

  • When in your life did you feel that you didn’t need anyone?You might have said, “I can do it all myself.”

  • What comes to your mind when you hear the word “sin?” How about words like disobedience, rebellion, failure, and guilt? Most people don’t like to think about their sin and what it does to themselves and others. I don’t like to think about sin, because it is ugly and it is painful. As a pastor, I wish I could tell you that I do not struggle with sin, but it would not be true. I am a repentant sinner that needs the forgiveness of Jesus. I need Jesus to fight against the temptations of my sinful nature and the temptation of the devil.
