Personally, I graduated from a state university in 1977 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture and Horticulture. I worked in a wholesale greenhouse operation for 2 years and then retail for 20 years. I became a small business owner in January of 1999. Since then I have become a certified Irlen screener. Recently I have begun to return to my lifelong interests of photography and painting. I also do volunteer work for the Kentucky Horse Park and the Henry Clay Estate.
"For to me life is Christ, and death gain; but what if my living on in the body may serve some good purpose? Which then am I to choose? I cannot tell. I am torn two ways: what I should like is to depart and be with Christ; that is better by far; but for your sake there is greater need for me to stay on in the body."Philippians 1:21-24
brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole
armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not
against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the
rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high
places. Wherefore take
unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil
day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore,
having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of
righteousness; And your feet shod
with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking
the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of
the wicked. And take the
helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be
upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The
mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings,
that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth
salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

Isaiah 52:7 >Japanese:山の美しいことがどのように彼の足なのかそのbringethの良い知らせ、そのpublisheth平和； 善(そのpublisheth救済者)のそのbringethの良い知らせ； シオン〔イスラエル人〕(汝の神reigneth)へのそのsaith イザヤ52:7 >Portuguese-Brazilian:Como belo sobre as montanhas são os pés dele que bringeth notícias boas, que paz de publisheth; que bringeth notícias boas de bom, que salvação de publisheth; que saith a Sião, reigneth Vosso de Deus! Isaiah 52:7 >Spanish-European: ¡Cuán hermoso sobre las montañas son los pies de él que bringeth noticias buenas, que paz de publisheth; que bringeth noticias buenas de bueno, que salvación de publisheth; que saith a Sión, Tu reigneth de Dios! Isaiah 52:7 >Swedish: Hur vacker på bergen är fötter av honom som bringeth god tidings, som publisheth fred; som bringeth god tidings av god, som publisheth räddning; som saith till Zion, din Gud reigneth!

We had a little snow in central Kentucky yesterday. It was nice to see, but the high winds and low temperatures were not much fun. I did some volunteer work last night at the Kentucky Horse Park for Southern Lights. It was good to see all of the visitors, who braved the weather, enjoying the Christmas festivities. The scene above was an image I took a few years back, but it looks similar to what we had here in Kentucky yesterday. Everyone stay safe and Happy Trails.
