  • Puzzles Fill Void On Winter Days

    Linda Williams|Mar 16, 2023

    Cold, dark, drab, dreary, January is the longest month of the year. I realize that it has 31 days the same as March, May, July, August, October, and December, but it seems days longer. I am thankful that the Romans decided to shorten February. The long days leave us retired folks wanting for something to do. Puzzles are a good cure for our cabin fever. They were first created by John Spilsbury in 1766. Spilsbury, a cartographer and engraver, cut up maps with a marquetry saw to teach children...

  • Personal Connections Matter To Families Taking Care Of Kin During Opioid Crisis

    Mar 16, 2023

    For family members unexpectedly taking care of a relative’s child during the opioid crisis, it can be difficult to navigate the legal waters of assuming custody. The process may be easier — and come with more support — if these caregivers have personal connections to local resource institutions, according to a study conducted by a Penn State faculty member. The researcher examined kinship care families — arrangements in which children are cared for primarily by relatives such as aunts and uncles, grandparents, siblings, and family friends...

  • Holistic Remedies

    Mar 16, 2023

While reading this text the thing that caught my attention was that God sent snakes to bite the Israelites, to g...

  • Thought for the Week

    Mar 16, 2023

    If we were to look for a verse that summed up the challenge of the Book of Judges, It would likely be 17:6, 18:1, 19:1 and 21:25. Now they are not exactly alike but they could and should be: “…everyone did as he pleased (or as he saw fit in his own eyes).” The fact (or fiction) that they had no king figures in as well. Actually Israel did have a king, someone to make decisions for them, rule over them, to lead them. That someone, that King, was God. They should have remembered, God did deliv...
