  • Katie-Rollins.jpg Birthday celebration at Halcomb Knob Farm on Friday

    It’s a bright and beautiful Tuesday morning here in Paint Lick with a welcome sunshine after the cooler, rainy night, yet we will see an even stranger Wednesday as our weather will turn to freezing rain and maybe some snow!
    I know that in my lifetime, I have never seen days like these! I thank my good Lord for all that He sends our way – even the strange stuff – because I do know that one day things will be better.

  • Peggy-Brandenburg.jpg Waco churches planning Halloween ‘trunk-or-treat’

    Brrrr. You can tell November is just around the corner!
    After an unusually warm fall (was it just last week?), these 40-ish temperatures sure feel winter-like, don't they?
    Someone said the other day that he believes we have only two seasons now – summer and winter. I'm inclined to agree.
    You know next week is Halloween and trick or treat for the youngsters. Most of our churches are offering “trunk-or-treat” on that night, Oct. 31, from 6 to 8 p.m. as an alternative and “safer” way to collect all those treats!

  • Anthony-Phelps.jpg Holding true to our faith in Him

    Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; and having an high priest over the house of God; let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
    Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering, for he is faithful that promised
    — Heb 10:19-23

    For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
