  • Over the course of the last few weeks, we have been on a roller coaster of weather: below zero temperatures, inches and inches of snow and rain, and flooding waters.  Earlier this week, we received a reprieve from the roller coaster weather with 50, 60, and even 70 degree temperatures.

    Typical Kentucky weather, right?

  • If they are sad, share their sorrow. Romans 12:15

    As an adult, I realize that life is far more complicated than I once thought. The naive little farm boy from Trimble County had the veil ripped off his eyes a long time ago. There is real sorrow in this world. I look around and see so many of my dear friends dealing with things like broken or strained relationships, the death of a loved one, a romantic breakup, or a family separation or divorce... All these cause great sorrow.
