Constant Preparation

Constant Preparation

Living seasonally means you’re always preparing for something. Who doesn’t like that feeling of being ready for a major transition or big event? It comes with a sense that positive change is coming, filling one with a sense of possibility and hope. Zach here, online teacher and consummate preparer. That’s what it takes to teach […]

Trigger Mechanisms

It really is fun to watch hunters this time of year. We are no different than any other group or even species. I would guess that every animal or mammal has trigger mechanisms – those things that happen that tell them something else is about to happen. For instance, we know that certain moon phases […]

Lowly Humility Is The High Way 

Humility is one of the deepest, strongest, most meaningful human entities referenced in Holy Writ.  It  is accurate.  It is powerful.  It is always to be present in all believers. Because we are us, we have tendencies to get on a roll with the latest and greatest need in the Kingdom.  We push, pull, plead, […]

Rutledge Renegades

On Sunday, August 16, 2015 at LaBelle, Penny Hustead hosted a birthday party for her daughters, Carley and Miranda.  Miranda’s birthday was August 11th (21) and Carley’s birthday was August 19th (22).  Others there were LaCrisha Wagy, LaKaylee, Ivy and Travis, Will Hustead, Waid Kaylor, Reva Hustead, Martin Guinn, Ethan Sharp, Neta Phillips and Teddy […]

Always Advantaged

Even in our harshest and most frustrating times there is gold in “them thar hills”!  That’s the message of the Bible.  River out of its banks?  God can part it.  Man’s hand withered?  Jesus can make it well.  Son lay dead in a grave?  God can raise him. It does not matter our circumstance.  We are […]

Uphill Battle

One of the ways to get a great cycling workout without going a long distance is to ride to the pinnacle. That may sound like a motivational statement but in my area there is actually a place called the pinnacle. It is within the boundaries of the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. It is a […]

Community Kids

Here I sit, trying to recall what happened in the last week, and feeling a bit overwhelmed. I returned late Monday after being totally off-line for over a week, camping in the Michigan woods at a wonderful women’s music festival. I had a fabulous time, and came home to a very busy village, and a […]

Monday, Reva Hustead, LaCrisha Wagy, LaKaylee, Ivy and Travis went to Hannibal.  Tuesday, Reva went to Kirksville and on Wednesday, Reva and LaKaylee went to Hannibal ball practice.  They rested on Thursday and Friday. Greg Delaney and friend, Ken Haizlip, from Jacksonville, Fl (both […]

Making Cheese & Keeping Bees

Making Cheese & Keeping Bees

Whew! I thought I had lots to write about as the week drew to a close, and then this Sunday turned out to be as full and eventful as any other day of the week. August is unquestionably among the busiest times of year for me, so this should not come as a surprise, but […]

Passion for the Outdoors

Hunting season is upon us again. In my home state of Tennessee, squirrel season opens at the end of August and dove season on the first day of September. This is a great time to introduce young and new hunters to the shooting sports. Many times deer season comes and goes without a single shot […]
