  • If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy

    By Roger Alford

    Living in America’s heartland, I thought I’d heard about every redneck joke that’s ever been told, but I was amused recently by a couple about the mothers of rednecks.

    You know a man is a redneck if his mother keeps a spit can on the ironing board.

    You know a man is a redneck if his mother has been in a fistfight at a high school sporting event.

  • Remember why it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood

    By Billy Holland

    I’m sure that many of you remember the man who portrayed the friendly neighbor in the popular children’s program known all over the world as Mister Rogers. Who can forget the childlike song that asked the question, “Won’t you be my neighbor?”

  • LIVING ON PURPOSE: Wisdom and knowledge are two completely different things

    When it comes to having spiritual wisdom, it’s not how much we know but how much we understand.

    It’s one thing to have bags of information seeds stacked up in the barn of our mind, but more importantly, how many seeds have been planted and nurtured to take root within our heart?

  • LIVING ON PURPOSE: Memorial Day is a time for us to remember those who risked it all

    By Billy Holland

    Memorial means to “remember” and every year on the last Monday in May, we honor those who sacrificed their lives in the line of active military service.

    On Memorial Day, we stop and pay our respect to the ones who were willing to stand in the gap between freedom and tyranny. The First Amendment was not only signed into existence with ink, but with the blood of more than 1.1 million Americans that have died in U.S. wars ­— along with many more that have suffered from physical and mental difficulties.

  • In this life, nothing can be done without hope and confidence

    By Billy Holland

    We spent some time at Cumberland Falls State Park this past week. It’s always refreshing to get away every now and then and behold the breathtaking beauty of nature.

    The earth is God’s masterpiece, and with all of the magnificent places on the planet, we appreciate the privilege to enjoy his wonderful creation.

    The trees and flowers are now blooming, and we were fortunate to catch a glimpse of many types of birds, a family of deer, squirrels, groundhogs, raccoons, and chipmunks along the trails.
