A few details from Clinton’s past

Just a reminder of the truth about the man 1,000 people saw at JHHS last week.

U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright held President Bill Clinton in contempt of court for his “willful failure” to testify truthfully. Another way of saying he lied under oath.

The Arkansas bar suspended his Arkansas law license for five years and ordered the former president to pay $25,000 in fines to that state's bar officials.

The U.S. Supreme Court disbarred Bill Clinton, lawyer, from practicing law before the high court as a follow-up to suspension of his law license in Arkansas.

What an example. Just the president you want to have your children look up to as an honorable man and follow as role model.

Local woman’s book offers inspiration

I read with much interest the book “God My Keeper” by Donna Joy Pearson of Vine Grove, released in late October 2007. This chronological record of events during her breast cancer treatment journey will be an inspiration to everyone who may face terminal illness and trial and tribulations during their lifetime.

Her book demonstrates that God is sovereign and God is good and the Lord allows pain. Sometimes he even orchestrates it. God understand the hurt, but he also looks into the deeper meaning. Trials often strengthen our faith, make us more like Jesus and give us compassion for others. At times, God may even use difficulties to keep us form living mundane lives or wasting opportunities. With his help, we profit immensely more from walking through the pain and suffering than from avoiding it. When our heavenly father knows it is best, he doesn’t keep us from the pain; instead, he enables us to endure the hardship by giving us wisdom and strength.

The theme throughout her book is that faith is trusting in Jesus Christ alone and that God’s grace is sufficient and is a free gift not earned or deserved.

“The Lord will keep you from all harm; He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”  (Psalm 121:7-9 NIV)
