The Screen Door

For the first year or two living in our cabin, we had no screen doors. That was no issue during the winter, but as the weather warmed and the cabin doors were left open to allow a nice breeze and light in, it also allowed the dog and our several cats in.

Eminence School Board


Celebrate your 2019 accomplishments

By Dr. Graham A. Colditz

Siteman Cancer Center

It's that time of year when social media feeds and news sites are filled with stories about New Year's resolutions. And that's fantastic. It's great to look ahead and set personal health goals for the coming year – whether it's getting more sleep, snacking less or taking the dog for more walks.

At the same time, let's not move past last year just yet. There can be real value in heading into 2020 by taking a look back on the positive things we accomplished for our health in 2019.

The journey to better health is made up of many steps – often, small steps – that we string together over time. Taking stock of what we're proud of from the past can lay a positive foundation for the future.

So, get out your smartphone, or good old pen and paper, and jot down the healthy behaviors you worked on in 2019. They can be big or small or in between. Think about things like diet and physical activity, and also sleep and mental health or anything else you did to improve your well-being. And don't forget things you may have done for the whole family.

Write down as many items as you can think of – even if you just did them a couple of times. Don't focus on goals you may have missed – for example, "Tried but didn't lose 20 pounds." Instead, focus on the things you did – maybe, "Kept weight steady."

Here are some questions that may help spark your memory:

 Did you try some new healthy vegetarian meals?

Did you get out regularly for walks?

 Did you cut back on alcohol?

 Did you get enough sleep most nights?

Did you pack healthy snacks in your kids' lunches?

 Did you take your kids to the playground more often?

After just a few minutes of thinking and writing, you're likely to have a fairly long list. When you can't think of anything else to add, review it line by line, mentally checking off each as you go.

More than likely, this list should make you feel pretty good about what you've worked on and accomplished over the past year. Sure, you may not have been successful with as many of the behaviors as you would have liked. That's natural. We're only human.

But, it's important for both our physical and mental well-being to take a step back, be kind to ourselves and reflect positively on those things we've accomplished. It took time and effort to tackle them. And those successes – even if modest – can support and stoke future positive behaviors. Small steps, over time, turn into big accomplishments.

So, early in 2020, take some time to celebrate what you did for your health in 2019 – and keep up the good work. There's a great year ahead.

It's your heath. Take control.

Letters to the Editor!
 

Dear Editor.

As with denying us the right to vote on the Abortion ban, Governor Parsons, Represen-tatives Bob Ross and retiring Mike Cunningham have stripped us our rights again. Representative Dave Evans' office has not returned my call.

These men voted for the CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations) bill and Parsons signed the bill into law which went into effect this last fall.

This law denies our county commissions and health boards from enacting new restrictions on CAFO's that are more stringent than the state law and would void restrictions these boards have had on the books for years. Loss of local control means communities and individual landowners must accept the stench, loss of property values and threats to water supplies if a CAFO decides they want to set up operations next door to you.

I respect your right to your views on both issues, when these candidates come courting you for your vote and tout all the good they have done, just remember they are incrementally stripping you and me of our rights.

We cannot give up our rights and should replace Parsons, Ross and Evans with people who really understand what Missourians want. Exercise your wonderful right to vote in 2020!

Maxine and Ken Horgan

Mountain View


Dear Editor,

Thanks to Donald Trump's resolve to render massive retaliation to the Leaders of Iran if they kill one single American, the Mullahs have folded like a house of cards. They were well aware that Trump would destroy their oil refineries, which is their main source of revenue, and would render poverty to their citizens that overthrow of their regime by it's citizens would be inevitable. Firing a few missiles in Iraq, in an area that ensured that no American would be hurt, was a ploy to appease their own masses. Now we know that they have no intention of ever harming one American, except through Hezbollah type proxies, that can be tied directly to their leadership.

We now know that they are cowards that have been running a bluff on prior weak American administrations. There is no doubt that they will continue their nefarious clandestine operations through proxy organizations who themselves have no viable military targets. They will use these organizations to do harm to the US with plausible deniability. They know that connecting them to these cowardly activities will yield the same retaliatory strikes as if they were done through their own regime. They also know that the game playing is over and that we finally have a president that will take whatever retaliatory measures necessary to put a stop to their terrible behavior.

While we are at it, maybe we should demand that they return the pallet loads of money that the Obama Administration gave them to buy their guarantee not to do us harm.

What we have learned, or should have learned, is that you cannot deal with these rogue nations through a policy of appeasement. Of the two nations, North Korea and Iran we now only have North Korea as a viable threat to our national security. North Korea is certainly watching us and waiting to see if President Trump has the resolve to take whatever action necessary to defend our interest abroad. You can bet they value their safety to the point that they do not dare saber rattle threats to this American President.

To all my friends reading this narrative, both republican and democrat, vote for president Trump for a second term. Our National Security is far too important to be left in the hands of a president that believes that they can deal with these tyrants through appeasement. It simply does not work. Donald Trump is not an old political hack that functions through self preservation. He is a businessman that understands the way things should be done and not what the popular belief is in order to get votes. If we don't keep him in office for four more years, it will be our loss.

Jack's Fork Country Church
 

God is so good, by all weather reports we were thinking Church might be cancelled due to weather. God had other plans. We had a wonderful service worshiping God in song and message. Welcomed by Dave who opened with the pledge and prayer. Promise Luke:22-32 Scripture Eph. 3:20. Opening hymns Trust and Obey, America the Beautiful and Give Thanks. Announcements; Several Ladies shared what a Blessing and a Renewing of the Spirit at the Women's Conference. Happy Birthday's to Marianne Gass and Mary Mathes. Prayer concerns added to our reg. long list Angie Bolin, Wayne Thompson, Ingrid Orchard, Randy Liggett, Brooke Fields, Frankie Pitts, Ted's cousin Carolyn, James Otten, Our School, Our Military and Families, Our Country and Leaders, Our Law Enforcement officers and families. The Family of Ben Sutton. Traveling mercies for Ms. Sonya Brewer and prayers for her trip to Israel. We were doubly blessed today with Special music a song by Tileta, Church in the Kitchen and Lord make this trial a Blessing by Carl and Cammy Younger. Children's church with Nancy. Message from Howell Burkhead: Psalm 101: 4-7. Those with perverse hearts shall be far from me: I will have nothing to do with evil. Whoever slanderers his neighbor in secret, him I will put to silence: whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart, him will i not endure. My eyes will be on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me, he whose walk is blameless will minister to me. You've probably heard the saying, "you can't have too many friends" Actually, for the Christian who is serious about living for God, the truth about friends is that more is not always better. The fact is that the Bible draws a line of distinction between loving and befriending others…and choosing those who will be our close friends. There are those whom we care for deeply,, those whom we pray…for whom we would do almost anything, that circle should be large. Then there are those who become our "soulmates" This circle should be…cannot be other than small. One of the greatest attributes a Christian can have is an openheartedness toward others. Three things: 1. The serious Christian will never be close friends with slanders! (read the verse) 2. The serious Christian will not make close friends of those who are conceited (read the verse) 3. The serious Christian will not be close to those who are dishonest. (perverse means deceitful. read the verse) These are the kinds of close friends serious Christians will not have. We should not be thick with slanderers. We should not be thick with the conceited. We must not be thick with the dishonest. Guard your heart. Guard your testimony. Guard your relationship with God. Be very careful whom you choose as friends. We pray you choose to follow God's word in psalm 101 4-7 and choose your friends according to God's word.

Closing hymns, Shall We Gather at the River, and the Old Country Church. Thought for the day: God is not our last hope, he is our only hope. Closing Prayer by Allen.

Renew 2.0 Women's Conference was a huge success. Many ladies from near and far attended and were blessed with a day of Praise and Worship, Testimonies, prayer, gifts, and great food. I am sure plans are already in the works for next year.

As we were having the Lord's Supper this morning the message was concerning the seriousness of partaking of these elements. It is to be taken in remembrance of the Lord. The bread and cup are symbols of His body, which was broken and His blood which was shed. During this time we are to reflect upon Jesus, proclaim His death, Expect and look forward to the day of His return, examination of our worthiness to take the bread and drink the cup, and then a celebration of the new covenant in His blood.

Monday night Men's ministry will be meeting this week at 7:00 PM. Ladies prayer group will be meeting this Tuesday at 1:00 PM. Wednesday activities will be back to their regular schedule. Team Kids will meet from 6:00-7:50 PM. Warriors for Christ will be meeting 6:00-7:50 PM. Business meeting will take place this Wednesday at 6:30 PM.

Breakfast next week will be from Kelly Titus. Nursery will be attended by Armand and Donna Spurgin.

Prayer Requests,

Revival and Renewal, Dan Jones, Ingrid Orchard, Doc Napier, Harig family, Kaveny Family, Johnny Laughlin, Brian Duarte, Knox Dailey, Jade Bressler, Blunkall Family, Ben Sutton Family, Carol Keel, Bill Wellinghoff Family, our community, our leaders, our schools, our youth, our military, our law enforcement.

Come and join us at 9:45 for Sunday School, 10:45 for Worship. Evening worship is at 6:30 PM. We are pretty casual, so come as you are. Pastor Paul's sermons are on Facebook Live every Sunday around 11:30 AM. Go to Pastor Paul Wellinghoff's Facebook page to see it live or to view it at a later time. The sermon is also posted on the Church Facebook page: First Baptist Church – Eminence.


UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
 

The people of Eminence United Methodist Church invite you to join us Sundays at 11. We are one block west of the 106/19 junction. Our hearts, minds, and doors are always open to all people.

Happy Sunday! We opened our service with prayer and the Call to Worship. We welcomed Brenda Jernigan whose parents were members here and she sat in the same pew they did. We received praise reports for Carl Jones and Keith Powell and ask for prayers of comfort for the families of Wanda Blunkall, Ben Sutton – the cousin of Doris Medley, and Linda Prince – sister of Cheryl Holzapfel.

Our hymns this week were He Touched Me, The Spirit is Alive in This Place, and Praise Him! Praise Him! Scripture was fromPsalm 1:1-6 and Ephesians 5:1-20.

The children's message was about the dark and light. Sometimes we are afraid of the dark, perhaps thinking their are monsters in the closet, but the light makes us not afraid. Jesus shines His light on us and makes us not afraid because He loves us.

The message this week was "People of Light." The key verse was Ephesians 5:8 "Once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light."

Paul said in Ephesians 5:1"Follow God's example, therefore, as dearly loved children." Can we do this? As children follow their parent's rules, we are to follow God's rules – to live a life filled with love for God and for others. Christ loved us and sacrificed His life for us. We can live a life of self sacrifice by loving others. What gets in the way of our loving others? Some see the church as a place filled with hypocrites. Paul said we cannot judge others unless we live a life of love and void of Immorality. The church is set aside for God's purpose to help us follow His rules. We are to abstain from greed, impurity, coarse joking, obscenities, stereotyping others, foolish talk, as all of these hurt someone, and to strive to be 100% pure Christians. We will not inherit God's kingdom when we put anyone or anything before God.

Don't be deceived by those who do not follow God's laws and will, and don't be around those who deny His rules. When we follow the light in Christ, we recognize our strength to follow God's rules. When we invite Jesus into our hearts we are born again. His grace gives us power to live as he asks us to do. Let your light shine that God gives us. Goodness, truthfulness, and righteousness are the result of following God. Learn what pleases Him.

Do not grieve the Holy Spirit. We can affect Him by pleasing him. We can also make Him sad. What a power God gives us. His light is fruitfulness. Darkness is not. Let people know when they are not following God. This is not judging, but helping someone to come into His light. When we let God's light shine in us, we allow that light to illuminate from us. When we make the choice to follow God, we will live right.

We are to be careful of how we live, to do good and defeat evil. Earth can be more like Heaven through our faith and our discipleship. When we are constantly filled with His spirit we will treat others with kindness and love and will refrain from putting others down. Paul said in Ephesians 5:18-20

18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus gives us power to use God's name, to help and thank him. Live a life as people of light. Let His light shine in you and through you.


Assembly of God

RENEW 2.0 WOMENS CONFERENCE…….WOW! That word about sums it all up. What a remarkable turnout of women looking to be "refreshed and filled" with more of Jesus. There's never such a thing as having too much Jesus in our lives. Kudos to the beautiful Godly women who put this together and allowed the Lord to work through them. Ladies please don't miss it next year if you didn't make it this year!

What a joy to have 28 of Bro. Paul Nash' family in church with us Sunday. They come this time of year to celebrate his birthday and Christmas with him. It's wonderful how they all make that time to gather together because I realize how hard it is to coordinate schedules. Bro. Paul….you are blessed!

Let's talk politics from the pulpit…..no let's don't…...yes let's do! Bro. Jones did talk about politics and the condition of our world these days but it's not like you think. He spoke on the importance of not siding with one party or the other but focusing on the party who's ideals line up with God's Word. The mess we find ourselves in today is due to people being so far OUT of the will of God. No matter who you voted for pray for all of our people in politics; especially the President.

Choose a church to attend regularly and fellowship and pray and become part of their family. It strengthens your walk with our Lord and helps to strengthen others walk as well. Bring your children and get them in touch with what Jesus has for them.

Our service hours are as follows: Sunday School 10 am., Morning Worship at 10:45 am. Sunday Evening Service at 5 pm. and Wednesday nights at 7 pm. If you have any questions or need a ride please call 573-226-3635.

West Eminence Christian Church
 

We gathered to worship with a warm welcome from Wilbur and Kristin Martin. Bob Heller led our worship with thoughts on looking forward. In this new year we look forward to God's guidance and blessing as individuals and as the church of Jesus Christ. We sang to the Lord "Let's Just Praise the Lord, Blessed be the Name, and Our Great Savior" among others.

Bob led our communion devotion with reminders that Jesus made a sacrifice for us and we are called to be Living Sacrifices following Jesus' example of living. And so we partakeof the loaf and the cup with care.

Prayer needs include Kathryn Conway, Ingrid Orchard, Frank Knight, Sherry Slattery, Roger Smith, Wanda Blunkall family, Ben Sutton family, family of Fanny Kaveny,and Alex Holden. We also pray for those who are involved in mission trips this winter. And of course, those who are travelling.

Bro. Allen's message was "The Power of Moments". Jesus architected moments in which he brought challenge and encouragement and hope to people's lives. The disciples were elevated on a mountain to make sure Jesus was the most honored and respected above other great leaders. He praised a woman of ill-repute who had come to him in faith and repentance and she became one of his most important followers. He made the disciples think clearly when they were in pagan territory and their insight was the good confession. He made connection with an outcast woman of Samaria and the connections he made and she made ended with many in the town coming to faith.

We invite all men to the Men's Fellowship on January 27 at 6:30.
