Hometown Heroes essay contest winners announced, 1

I think a hero is someone who will put our lives before their life. A hero is someone who is willing to do anything for others. A hero is generous and kind in so many ways. Some people don't see that in a person, but I do because I happen to be related to my hero. He is my grandfather.

There are many heroes in this world right now but I have one from the past. My hero is Jesus because he showed great sacrifice, kindness and persistence in his life on Earth. He showed kindness and sacrifice when he died. Persistence against the "law" in some places like Rome and Babylon.

Nash County Animal Friends' Notebook

Soon, HUNTERS who use dogs will become a problem for the Shelter. I'm not going to get into a discussion about hunting, just the dogs. Some of the hunters dump their dogs when they don't hunt good anymore. They either bring them to the Shelter or just leave them to fend for themselves. However, some hunters may actually care about their dogs but the dogs get lost.

Luke's Word for the Week
Luke's Word for the Week

The Gospel of Mark is a great choice to read first for the gospel account of Jesus if you are someone who wants to get straight to the point. Can't stand the small, tiny details, just want the truth? I'd recommend the Gospel of Mark. Mark was the first gospel account to be penned, most likely around 60 AD, his account is most similar to Matthew and is filled with a clear picture of who Jesus is and what His Kingdom is like. The book, unlike Matthew and Luke does not tell the heartwarming and true story of the birth of Christ.

PEACHTREE COMMUNITY NEWS

Peachtree folks gathered for worship on a gorgeous Sunday morning. Sanctuary flowers were given by Kenneth and Linda Edwards.
The children's sermon by Beverly Wilson was about a great American president, Theodore Roosevelt. She showed some pictures of him. As a young man he was a rancher and he always cautioned his workers to never brand cattle that were not his. He said, "A man who will steal for me, will also steal from me." She told the children to always be truthful. Jesus said, "Whosoever can be trusted with very little, can also be trusted with much." Luke 16:19.

No Aventon News this week, just thoughts.
It's a wet Monday morning and here I sit in my new kitchen looking out the double doors at the cows grazing in the pasture. Is life perfect for me? That question makes me smile. By far it isn't! Never has been and I am pretty confident it never will be. Is life good for me? Smiling again. I am blessed beyond words; I always have been, and always will be. No, I didn't always realize that, I certainly didn't see it during trouble times, but I do now.
