On Matters of Reflection and Prayer…

By Dr. Don Newbury

May artists of the world be tender--brushes poised to capture on canvas their impressions of a troubled world. For the rest of us, though, perhaps the closest we can come to artistry is to spin life’s color wheel, praying its arrow will land on blue, remaining there for a while. People of goodwill are of like mind: With all that is being sorted out--in Dallas and throughout the land-- law enforcement personnel are on the front line. They forge ever forward, working extra hours when many of us would prefer going back to bed, pulling the covers over our heads, wishing the world to go away….

Poor Bill, Bless His Heart

By Cathy Ledbetter

 

A few days ago I was reading through some tips on drawing the human face. I read that the width of the eye is usually the same as the space between the eyes and the length of the nose from bridge to tip. Also, the forehead is generally two nose lengths high. Of course I measured the width of my eye and the length of my nose so I could try all of this out—and it works on my face. There are many other similar proportions a person can use to draw the human body. It is almost magical.

The Richland Springs Report

by Sue Ransom 

I’m starting the column a little early because I know this weekend is going to be hectic, and I leave for Canada on Monday. I’m a little concerned about the weather. It seems they are cooler than normal in Ontario as well as here in the Deep South. I will take my swim suit, but there is a good chance it will stay on the beach and not get wet. I know from previous experience that Canada cold water is COLD! I don’t mind though, it will be a nice relaxing time visiting with my family.
