  • Treat time like a treasure

    It was the last day of the month.  Taking my desk calendar and reviewing the appointments filled, the projects accomplished, and the obligations met, I tore it from the pad, rolled it up into a wad and threw it into the wastebasket.

  • Log Cabin Quilters

    By WINNELLE HORNE

    The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, August 13 at the Levy County Quilt Museum. A lot of work was done.

    Our days and weeks are getting busier.  On Tuesday, eight of us went to Camp Caruth to help the children and counselors make pillows.  What a great day we had.

    On Wednesday, Derick and six boys were out and we got a lot of things taken care of — mowing, repairing the quilt block on the porch, hanging our Light House outside, putting up chairs in the cupboard outside and so much more.  Thank you Lancaster.

  • Meet the world's disdain with confident grace born of faith

    The other evening I heard a man on the television emphatically state that he did not believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  I could sense that he had a real feeling of scorn for those who do.     

    Prominent men in public places have also expressed their contempt for “born-againers.”  This is typical of the general attitude toward orthodox Christians and the truths they confess.
