Trust in the Lord the Bible says. I think we have to do this to live in today’s society. I have a friend that is obsessed with trying to find out exactly what happened 20 years ago. Now, I am not saying that the truth should not be told or that real crimes should go unpunished, but aside from these...
Common Redpoll
A bird that nests in the far north, the Common Redpoll is seen in our area-though rarely-during the winter months. They are numbered among the tiny finches that frequent local feeding stations this time of year, like goldfinches, siskins, house finches, purple finches, and crossbills. They are...
I listened to a good message and wanted to share it. The speaker asked if we remembered all the doom and gloom predictions for the last 30 plus years or so. In 1988 there was the 88 reasons God was coming back, it was the end. Then climate change started and the world would seemingly be all used...
Looking back on the year 2019, many things did not happen that I wanted to, and also many unexpected things did happen. I know I just spoke about the importance of having goals to make sure you are moving in the right direction, but things do not always go in the direction that we want. This is...
I know it is so easy to be distracted and stray away from what you planned on doing today or this week or your life goals that you had in high school, but every once in a while we need to refocus and get ourselves back on track. Let’s do this as we near the end of 2019. Let’s regroup and set better...
I try to be encouraging and uplifting here, but also keep things real. Yesterday, I drove to the hospital in Saginaw. Many people were packed on the roads and parking-lots and stores, stressed about the holidays and all they have to do. I was taking a family member to get an MRI test performed. As...
I’ve watched enough Hallmark Christmas movies over the past weeks to realize genuine kindness cannot be repaid. At the recent gathering of the Spring Chicks, I was the recipient of such kindness. As life would have it, just as we were seated, a phone call prevented me from staying for the...
A kindly, humble girl-child from a town in Galilee, she must have wondered, struck with awe, “Why has God chosen me”? The angel Gabriel told her--God had called her as the one. Her virgin womb would bring to birth our Savior, God’s own Son. It must have been a shock to hear such startling news...

On December 12, 2019, the Rotary Club of Pinconning & Standish heard a presentation by Craig Goulet, current Manager of the Bay County Animal Services and Adoption Center, formerly known as the Bay County Animal Control Department. He also serves as Executive Assistant to Bay County Executive...
I have a question for you; who have you chosen to help this holiday season? It is the season for giving, and I am not just talking about gifts. I would challenge you to pick out someone that needs a friend or encouragement or help with a project or guidance or just someone to listen. See, giving...
