  • We are truly as sick as our deepest, darkest secrets but God can heal us

    When my oldest daughter was 4 or 5 we were riding with my mom and Alison blurted out, “Grandma, want to know a family secret?”

    I sat in the passenger seat frozen, not sure what my daughter was about to say.

    “It’s like Dad wearing Mom’s underwear,” Alison said.

    It was one of those moments when you feel obligated to explain, but you sure as heck don’t want to because no matter what you say your mom will still think you’re an imbecile -- or worse.

  • Suspect with only 1 eye and 1 ear doesn't wear glasses

    Dreaming of lives filled with excitement, three good ol’ boys decided to apply to become police officers. Part of the interview process involved an exercise in observation, led by a rather ill-tempered sergeant.

    The sergeant held up a photograph of a suspect for 5 second, put it away, and then asked the first of the fellows what he observed about the suspect that would help to apprehend him.

    “That’s easy,” the fellow said. “He had only one eye.”

    We enjoyed hearing about the past and upcoming trips to Haiti from Ben Allen.  After services we had a fantastic lunch as a fundraiser for Ben and Ashley’s trip to Haiti.  We are praying for their safety and God’s will to be done as this group travels there this summer.

    Bro. Bill’s message was from Psalms 1, entitled “The Truth, Now What?”  This Psalm is clear that if we don’t seek God daily we are settling for less than what He has planned for us.

    A wonderful message was shared Sunday from 2 Samuel 5:17-25.  In all things we need to go to our stronghold and inquire of the Lord.

  • Maybe God only uses broken people – and we’re all broken in one way or another

    When Michelle Smith talks about God, tears trickle down her cheeks.

    A 13th-generation native Floridian, she is selling or giving away all of her possessions to move to the Congo in central Africa, one of the most volatile areas on the planet.

    She will be joining a small handful of other people who feel called by God to “come and die,” as Michelle says, for the sake of the gospel of peace.

  • Elderly lady reports steering wheel, gear shift stolen

    I enjoyed the tale about the elderly woman who called 911 to report her car had been broken into. She was hysterical, telling the person on the other end of the phone line: “They stole the radio, the steering wheel, the brake, the gas pedal, even the gear shift.”

    A few minutes later, a police officer radioed in: “Disregard. She had gotten into the backseat by mistake.”

  • This Mother’s Day, give Mom something to brag about

    Three elderly ladies got together on Mother’s Day and were talking about how much their sons loved them.

    “My son brings me a huge bouquet of flowers every week, not just on Mother’s Day,” the first woman said. “He’s always bringing me to great restaurants, too. And if I so much as hint that I want something, he goes out and buys it.”

  • Real love is not just sweet feelings, it’s about forgiveness and adapting

    Note: On May 3, my husband and I will be married 41 years. I’ve adapted this column from 2009.

    While out for our semi-regular Sunday drive, as I flipped through the radio stations I asked my husband what kind of music he liked.

    That’s the kind of questions you ask on a first date, not after 41 years of marriage!

    I’m not sure what that says about the state of our marriage. You don’t even know what kind of music your husband likes?

    It was a great day in the Lord’s house yesterday as we enjoyed the Capital City Boys concert.  It was a wonderful to worship and fellowship with many other believers.

    It was great to have several visitors with us. We invite you to worship with us any Sunday at 11 and 6 with small group study at 9:45.  If transportation is needed call 502-484-5236 or 502-514-1594.
