  • As I sit here this overcast Sunday afternoon, pondering and praying I will provide a message this week that will glorify God, my mind drifts to faith.
    Just exactly who do you and I put our faith in? How often do I pray and thank God for his blessings, yet in the back of my mind I still comfort myself with my own achievements and possessions.
    After all, what accomplishments or material items do I have which were not given me by the almighty God, my creator?
    Yet I often reflect on how much money I have in my checkbook, knowing my bills will be paid.

    I recently took a drive down to the Van Buren Boat Ramp at Taylorsville Lake and as I drove along Pleasant Grove Ridge, I was flooded with memories.
    Of course my grandparents, Robert and Emolyn Searcy, lived in the heart of Van Buren before Taylorsville Lake came about, so I have traveled that road many times.
    However, one of those memories had to do with a story for June Dairy Month.
    There aren’t enough dairy farms left in Anderson County to celebrate dairy month now, but 30 years ago was a different story.
