This World of Hurt - Conversations on a One-way Street

  

   Let me give you a quick explanation of the structural breakdown regarding my children, how they are grouped, and the corresponding nicknames that accompany those groups. Together there are 7 of them, and their groups are:  “The Oldest”—because she’s the oldest, “The Boy”—because he’s the only boy, “The Middles”—because they are in the middle, “The Littles”—you guessed it, because they’re younger than the Middles, and “The Baby”—this should be evident.

This World of Hurt

The Human Walkie Talkie

  

   A little more than a year ago my wife and I celebrated the birth of our 6th daughter. Surrounded by so many women, one can imagine that I am pulled in a number of different directions. Or another—and probably more accurate—way to say it is: I get bossed around a lot. However, after a few months with the new baby, I realized something: My wife was no longer giving me any directions at all. Or at least not when the baby was around.

Dear Editor,

   We just wanted to comment on the 2nd Annual Red Dirt Reunion.  WOW!!!  What a great evening!  Weather was wonderful....great food....the Pavillion is fantastic for an event like this... And entertainment by three bands:   Circus Bear Trickery.... followed by Bobby Flores & The Yellow Rose Band... with the Hogg Maulies finishing out the evening!  And such special treat to have Rotan’s own Rode Morrow back in his hometown with the Hogg Maulies recording their live album,  “Live @ The Lance” right here in Rotan!

Loving Life

 

    I am sure that all of us want to get the most out of life that we can. God’s word tells us exactly how to do that. In 1st Peter 3:10-12, the apostle Peter, quoting King David in Psalm 34, said: “For ‘The one who desires life, to love and see good days, Must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit. He must turn away from evil and do good; He must seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous, and His ears attend to their prayer, But the face of the LORD is against those who do evil.’” (NASB)

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:  “One of the things that’s beautiful about New Orleans is how culturally rich we are and how well we have worked together. People call us a gumbo. It’s really important that we get focused on the very simple notion that diversity is a strength, it’s not a weakness.”—Mitch Landrieu (Mayor of New Orleans)

From the Pulpit by Pastor, Charles Glidewell

 

 

      On Accepting the Season You’re In You can’t do it all, and you certainly can’t do it all at once. I don’t know about you, but for a person like me that’s hard to accept. If your life is like mine your plate is full and, still, you’re doing your best to make room for other things. Life can easily turn into a sinking swamp of feeling guilty for saying no to things that you genuinely don’t have the time (or energy) for on the one hand, and longing to accomplish all of those postponed dreams and ambitions on the other, all while fulfilling your day - to - day obligations on time and with a smile.
