  • God provides a shield to protect those with faith in difficult times

    Sometimes life doesn’t seem fair, and we want to blame God for our problems. But Matthew 5:45 states, “That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”

    What the scripture is saying is that good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people. That’s life.  Sometimes it is easy and sometimes it is difficult.

  • New colorful laundry packs can pose a risk to children

    Today I would like to share information about some products that we have to be especially careful in handling and having around the home. These are important facts to keep in mind for the safety of your health and that of your children. 

    Clean laundry, safe kids

    The new single-use liquid laundry detergent packs that dissolve in the washing machine are convenient and easy to use. But if you have (or care for) small children, you need to be especially careful to keep them locked up and out of reach.

  • Follow guidelines to prevent injury from chainsaws

    Chainsaws are a useful tool to help clean up our trees after this icy winter we have experienced, but they are also powerful tools, making them very dangerous.

    Improper use can cause serious and fatal injuries.  If you use a chainsaw, follow these three safety guidelines:

    • Know how to properly use a chainsaw

    • Wear personal protective equipment to protect eyes, hearing, head, legs and feet

    • Never work alone

    Buy a chainsaw you can comfortably handle and that is appropriate for the tasks you do most often.
