• Memories of loved ones live within us

    By Billy Holland

    Through the winter months, I had been thinking about how I was going to tackle the huge project of replacing our privacy fence in the spring.

    By Dr. Billy Holland

    As a minister, I am always being updated about what is happening in the daily news and regularly reminded about how the world is falling apart. I do appreciate the hard work from the news agencies to keep us informed, but we must also realize there needs to be a balance between constantly absorbing what everyone else is doing and concentrating on the life we have been called to live.
