Remembering Grandma Starr

Grandma Starr was an amazing Christian lady.  She was such a lovely grandmother to me (even though I am related to her only by law, she told me that I am a part of her family).  Her mind was so sharp that even at 97 she could recall names and events of so many people.  She loved working crossword puzzles, knitting, and talking about the Lord.  I know she prayed for me and my family.  She was a giver and a classic example of what a Christian grandma should be like.  We can take the pain of her absence because we know that she is alive and in the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Heaven grows sweeter everyday.

 Ada Virginia Starr, 97 of Montpelier died peacefully Thursday afternoon in her home. She was born on May 13, 1915 in Butler Indiana to Oscar Isaiah and Addie Elizabeth (Frick) Miser. Virginia graduated from Montpelier High School in 1933. Virginia was a homemaker for her entire life. She was a member of New Beginnings Church (formerly Central United Brethren) in Mo…

Washington's 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation

Happy Thanksgiving!

By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.

      Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor-- and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the Unit…

Post election perspective

You are probably thinking “oh well, here goes another blog article about the election” and of course, you are right to think that, but to dismiss this as yet another, I’ll let you judge whetheror not you will read anything like this in blogdom.I say that because not very many in blogdom come from my perspective which is essentially Christian-Baptist-American-Conservative and in that particular order with that particular point of view.So if you are already “dismissive” then fine, I hope you have a good day, see you later. I am going to succinctly share my thoughts about what happened and what I plan on doing to conserve and promote the founding principles and fundamental liberties of theAmerican social order and civility.

What happened? 1. Our eyes were partially fixed on the polls when the culture around us was screaming.The culture (way of living) is a far more superior indicator (and still is) of where we as a nation are heading.Our music, movies, web, television programs are filled w…
