Thank you, Lord, for Church

By Rosie Moore I read these thoughts somewhere and I think they are so appropriate, especially at this time of the year. The time when people are so willing to traipse to church on this one day to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is sad the church will be crowded on this day […]

Those were the days

By Rosie Moore Before we had TV, we had radio. My grandmother and I would listen to Amos ‘N Andy, Fibber McGee and Molly, The Shadow, and Charles Fuller’s “Heavenly Sunshine”’ program. That was in the evenings. In the afternoons we listened to the original “soap operas” such as, Stella Dallas, Life Can Be Beautiful, […]

What is Lent?

  By Rosie Moore A history lesson today, which everyone probably knows but, I think, it always bears repeating at this time of the year. The word “lent” comes from Old English “leneten,” which means “spring.” In Old German the related words “lenzia” and “lenzo,” which probably comes from the same root as “long” and […]

The Chaplain Corps

By Rosie Moore All through my life I heard the expression, “you’re never too old to learn.” And that’s so very true. I am so pleased to be able to learn something new on many occasions, something that I never heard of before or knew about. I learned this interesting piece of news from my […]

The Joyous Gift of Grandparents

By Rosie Moore That’s the name of a little book I recently received. And here is the introduction for that book: “A woman and her granddaughter were spending time together one day. As often happened the little girl was plying her grandma with questions. Suddenly, with a very serious tone the girl asked, “Grandma, what […]

Ruby is 100!

By Rosie Moore Our “gem” Ruby Miller of the S & S Bowling Lanes in Fountain City turned 100 years old on January 30. A remarkable day to remember both then and now. I asked her how did she like being 100 and she said wonderful! She has a slight hearing problem but her mind […]

The Month of Love

By Rosie Moore Nearly everyone knows the story of St. Valentine, the imprisoned saint who was killed because he officiated at the marriages of Christian couples. The Romans paid honor to the Roman God of Fertility on February 14th, but St. Valentine didn’t honor pagan idolatry. While in prison St. Valentine wrote a letter to […]

A gathering of hope

By Rosie Moore I recently received a little book written by Helen Hayes called, “A Gathering Of Hope.” We older ones remember Helen I’m sure, but, for the younger ones let me explain that she was a famous actress, born in 1900, died in 1993 of congestive heart failure. A star of many movies, such […]
