Memorial Day weekend is often heralded as the beginning of summer, when boaters take to the rivers and campers pitch their tents or take their RVs out on the highways. More than that, Memorial Day itself is dedicated to honoring the memories of military members who died in service to the U.S. more
Next Monday, the United States will officially observe Memorial Day for the 156th time. There were occasions before May 30, 1868, when citizens in both the North and South paused to honor those who died during the Civil War. By 1890, every Union state offi-cially observed the day. Most Southern states did as well, but on different dates, and their time of remembrance was called Confederate Memorial Day. more
Psalms 50:22 Listen to this, you that ignore me, or I will destroy you, and there will be no one to save you. more
Today I heard about strong storms and tornadoes, and I am grateful lives were spared because people crowded into storm shelters and basements. I am thankful every day for the shelter my home provides me. Shelter is defined as safety from a storm, an enemy, or trouble. Please remember that God is our shelter. Psalm 91:1-2 says, “Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God and I trust Him.” When troubles come our way, God is our shelter. God will be with us. God’s presence is our refuge providing strength and giving hope. May God bless your day! Diane Cooke, Pastor, Presbyterian Churches, Willow Springs and Mtn. View. more
In war, usually the enemy is someone who is going to kill you unless you can kill him first. He has a totally different set of beliefs and follows leaders whose main purpose is to destroy you and those around you. In most wars, your enemy is clearly defined by a uniform, a language, country of origin, or a flag. He is a faceless, nameless, nonperson. But what if he did have a familiar face and name- and it was Brother? Father? Son? Cousin? Uncle? Neighbor? Friend? Or even Grandfather? more

I caved today and turned the air conditioning on, but no matter how hot it gets in the summer, if I want to grill, I'm grilling. With summer near, it's time to get the grill cleaned up and plan those gatherings. One dish that is easy to make and travels well is homemade baked beans.  Sure, you can doctor a can or two your way and I've done that but once you make your own, you may not go back.  The secret to the best beans is to start with a fresh bag of beans, rinse well, and allow to soak overnight. This classic recipe is cooked on the stovetop and then baked but you can use a crockpot, which I prefer.  Baked beans pair well with just about anything, and adds a touch of sweetness to the meal. I can smell them cooking now. And if you have a smoker, put those cooked beans in the smoker for about 20 mins for a even better flavor.  We are entering the season of summer foods, cooked outside, and eating alfresco is my favorite part of summer.  Bring on the burgers and beans.  more
