  • Built to Last

    Oct 5, 2023

    I like to buy new, up to date gadgets. l always have... new sewing machine, new washing machine, new computer all with bright shiny bells and whistles.

  • Do God Good

    Jessica DeTiege|Oct 5, 2023

    I recently purchased this cool hat while on summer vacation. The hat is made up of bright green and blue colors with the words "DO GOOD" typed in bold white type font. Sometimes, I am out and forget what I am wearing, but I am often reminded of what I have on if someone stops to compliment or remark about my attire. One day, a woman approached me while I was out running errands wearing my new hat. She shared that she needed help and explained how she needed me to help. We came to a resolution, and I was able to assist her. I presume she saw my...

    It seems like I have waited to become a senior in high school forever. Even though I skipped kindergarten, it seems like it took this year forever to come. Now that it is here, I have so many mixed emotions. I sometimes wonder how life will be after leaving my parents, how college life will be, etc. Although my mom has exposed me to so many different colleges, and I have seen the college life for myself, there still is a feeling of nervousness that I can’t shake. Another thing that is s...

  • The End is Near

    Oct 5, 2023

    My son hear the instructions of your father and forsake not the law of your mother (Proverbs 1:8). Parents we are commanded to teach our children in God's ways. Teach them to work and manage their money. Teach them the importance of Godly wisdom and knowledge that what they work hard for won't end up in someone else’s house. Children obey your parents (in the Lord). For this is right that you may live long on the earth. Keep your father's commandments and follow your loving mothers ways. This will keep you from much evil. Wel bless God! S...

  • Goverment Shutdown: "Huff n' Puff"

    Eddie D. Gillis|Oct 5, 2023

    Remember the story of the “Three Little Pigs”? Of course, you do. The Big Bad Wolf threatened to blow down their houses so he could devour them in the end, which sort of reminds one how the recent looming government shutdown played out. There were “three houses” within the House of Representatives that could be labeled as Democrat, moderate Republican, and Right Over the Edge. What is more, there had to be the wolf, let’s say played by Florida’s Matt Gaetz. Why him? Because he wants to destroy whatever House Speaker is trying to build when...
