Personally, I graduated from a state university in 1977 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture and Horticulture. I worked in a wholesale greenhouse operation for 2 years and then retail for 20 years. I became a small business owner in January of 1999. Since then I have become a certified Irlen screener. Recently I have begun to return to my lifelong interests of photography and painting. I also do volunteer work for the Kentucky Horse Park and the Henry Clay Estate.
"For to me life is Christ, and death gain; but what if my living on in the body may serve some good purpose? Which then am I to choose? I cannot tell. I am torn two ways: what I should like is to depart and be with Christ; that is better by far; but for your sake there is greater need for me to stay on in the body."Philippians 1:21-24
Behold, I shew
you a mystery: We shall not all
sleep, But we shall all
be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the
trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall
be changed.…then shall be
brought to pass the saying that is written,
The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works. The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.
On this 1st day of
October 2013, our USA government has entered into a partial shutdown. It is unfortunate that our national leaders presumably do not study American history.
If they did, then surely they would have learned about Kentucky and USA
statesman, Henry Clay, the Great Compromiser. In his nearly 50 years of tireless
service to this country, he played a major role in diverting America away from
civil war. May our US leaders learn from
the past in an effort to avoid repeating its mistakes.
To every thing
there is a season, and a time
to every purpose under the heaven. A time to be
born, and a time to die: A time to
plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted: A time to
kill, and a time to heal: A time to
break down, and a time to build up: A time to
weep, and a time to laugh: A time to
mourn, and a time to dance: A time to
cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together: A time to
embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing: A time to
get, and a time to lose: A time to
keep, and a time to cast away: A time to
rend, and a time to sew: A time to
keep silence, and a time to speak: A time to
love, and a time to hate: A time of
war, and a time of peace.
