  • 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.

    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.”

  • In early Kentucky they were found in the widely-scattered frontier cabins. As towns sprang up, they congregated at trading posts and taverns. By the 19th and 20th centuries, they patronized the local general stores, and as communities expanded, storytelling became a delightful pastime for folks who were hungry to escape the hum-drum of everyday life.

  • 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.”

  • 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?

  • A small village located in the Scottish highlands boasts of a long history of castles, battles and the Loch Ness monster. Its name, “Inverness,” traveled with Scottish immigrants across the Atlantic, and was bestowed upon several towns and villages in the raw, new land of America.

    The Gowers immigrated from Inverness, Scotland, to Kentucky in the early 1800s. Their daughter, Lucy Harriet Gower, married an upcoming Owenton lawyer in 1824.

  • Cedar Hill Baptist Church

    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.

    Bro. Bill’s message was from 1 Timothy 4 called “Don’t Be Fooled.”

    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.

  • A few months ago, the one I call my uncle dad was out shooting a gun and the noise did something to his hearing so now people sound like Donald Duck to him.

    Since then he’s had a lot of people who are also hard of hearing commiserate with him.

    He says it’s comforting to be able to say, “You too?” However, he really, really, really wants his hearing back.

    It was the last day of school and all the kindergarten students were giving gifts to their teacher.

    The florist’s son handed her a beautifully wrapped box. The teacher felt it and said, “I bet I know what this is. Flowers.”

    “That’s right,” the little boy said. “But how did you know?”

    “Oh, just a wild guess,” she said.
