  • Expanding the arts in Oldham County
  • Need finds a voice

    There are many times when I like to be alone, close my eyes and express to God in words the feelings of my heart. That is prayer. Sometimes I pray as I am walking along the street or driving my car. I don’t close my eyes then, though I often speak the words. At other times I pray when I am in a group and don’t care to express my thoughts through speech. Though kneeling, closing eyes or using an expression of words may be helpful in prayer, one can pray without the use of any of these.

  • Thankfully, he still fits on my lap

    Hudson Charles is my loving, little boy, always showering me with kisses and hugs. He is also my worrier. His worries are much deeper than those of the average six-year-old. Many days, I take him onto my lap and attempt to wipe the creases from his brow. I can’t remove all of his fears. Fears that his heart will stop beating or that he will have a bad dream when he falls asleep. But I can help him understand that the police in Belize will not send him to jail for taking his seatbelt off that one time.

  • Surrender to the power of the Holy Spirit
