  • Worship that is Pleasing to the Lord

    I remember a delightful evening with friends.  Our hosts had a four-year-old whose favorite super hero was Bible man. He wanted to impress us so he got on his costume.

    He put on his Bible Man mask, his Luke Skywalker light saber, and his Bible woman cape because the purple looks cool, and his Bible man cape was torn.

    His mother asks him the Bible man questions, “Are you ready for battle?” He proclaims yes! She asks about his helmet, shield, sword, and shoes. He makes all the appropriate cute responses.

Rockefeller, when asked what would make him happy, is said to have replied, “One dollar more.”

    In February, Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture James Comer asked farmers across the Commonwealth to step-up and make the “Ag Tag” donation.

    For the second time, the proceeds from voluntary donations to the Agricultural Program Trust fund would be divided equally among 4-H, FFA and Kentucky Proud. Farmers had the option to donate $10 when they renewed their license plates in March.
