    Our worship of God is the most humble and reverent action to our Creator for the debt we owe Him. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth and all that are therein and He also created us in his own image. (Gen. Chapter I)

    One can’t help but wonder what the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven might be. In the Lord’s Prayer we pray, “Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done…” The prayer suggests that all is well in heaven and that we should seek that presence of God within us in this world.

    First, let me say thank you to everyone who is doing their part to minimize the spread of this disease, Coronavirus. You are doing your part trying to keep this pandemic from spreading further. By social distancing, washing our hands, wearing a mask correctly, cleaning, and disinfecting, you are doing your part. Thank you for your extra effort.

    Good grammar speaks volumes, no pun intended, and I fear we are losing that emphasis as abbreviated messages multiply in our present-day communication world. Yet, we do need to seek first the intent of the sender and not allow flaws in presentation to distort the meaning.

    We attend worship regularly, we give generously of our means to support the good works of the church, we live godly lives and do good unto all men, yet bad things happen to us. Why, we may ask, are Christians living good lives and doing good in the name of the Father, having bad things happen to them? As always, let us look to the bible, as we can only know as much as God’s word tells us, for we are forbidden to add to or take from His Holy Word (Rev. 22:18-19). Anything beyond this is simply human conjecture and therefor meaningless.

    Benjamin Franklin once said, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Often that appears to be true. Looking to certitudes that have been proven false, ancient cosmologies thought the world was flat. Later the world was discovered to be round. But as late as the 17th century the Roman Catholic Church condemned Galileo for supporting the theory that the earth rotated around the sun rather than vice versa.

    May is Mental Health Awareness month. I was stuck on that sentence for a long time. I planned on including statistics and maybe a pie graph, but I just can’t do it. If it was May 2019, I might have. We don’t need statistics right now. I will say normally, 1 in 5 people deal with some kind of mental illness in the world. I’m not a great judge on what is “normal” but things are definitely not normal right now.

    Mother’s Day is upon us. A day in which we will try in some simple but sincere way to let our Mother’s know they are appreciated and loved.

    Sister Wendy in her Book of Meditations notes the risk we take to love someone. “All love,” she writes, “whether of child, parent, partner, friend, even of place, possession, or animal, holds the potential for suffering, because of death. We cannot possess or hold fast anything or anyone: it is all gift."

    The person with whom I've sheltered day and night during the time of the COVID-19 virus shutdown hasn't been too compatible. We've had our differences, but they managed to work themselves out and we are still together.

    Among local historical records at the Logan County Public Library is a copy of a lengthy letter dated August 10, 1835. Rebecca Washington, who lived at Gordonsville, wrote this letter to her daughter in Arkansas describing the cholera epidemic that had struck Russellville and Logan County at that time.

    In the current struggle with the coronavirus, peace may seem far away until we have a piece of pie at Roy’s BBQ or a piece of pizza at the Hut, eating inside the restaurant again. (And no, they aren’t giving me royalties.) But according to God’s Word, we can have peace in times we don’t understand. I have seen this in my life. There was a time going into major back surgery, and I was in the room by myself waiting to be wheeled into the operating room. But I knew I wasn’t by myself-God was there giving me peace.

    Some politically leftist groups and their enablers in Congress and the Kentucky legislature are seizing upon former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel’s advice to “never let a serious crisis go to waste” offered during last decade’s Great Recession to push for costly policies that will outlast the coronavirus and hinder economic recovery across the country and in our commonwealth.
