An Upward Look

By Mae Stallard“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.” (I Cor. 10:23)In his letter to the believers at Corinth, the apostle Paul warned them about trying to serve the Lord and the devil at the same time.

Remembering 9-11; Strength for the Moment

Tonight as I type this article, I realize the clock has struck midnight and it is the 13th anniversary of September 11.

I would be in the majority for such an act to be taken. No more 911 for the terrorists to celebrate.

Earl Ray Tomblin and Secretary of State Natalie Tennant have said to the people of Mingo.

Taking Baby Steps

Tonight as I was praying over my daughter before bed time I thanked God for baby steps. Now that may not seem unusual to those reading this but I have not given you all of the information. My daughter is eighteen years old and a freshman in college. Needless to say this brought memories of her journey so far gushing into my mind like the Hoover Dam had been breached. My daughter was born premature. She entered this world at 28 weeks and weighed a little over two pounds. Her birth was in June ...
