    Alaskan Silver Running For Your Life 

       Pin searched the room while Mayor Lafayette told his story. It was imperative that they show no signs of worry. The Pick Axes mustn’t know that Sgt Silver had learned their plan. It was up to the Mayor to sell this as just a normal campaign speech. “Great Grandpa made an honest fortune in spite of himself.” That is how Carl Lafayette’s story always began.

The Lafayette family was the richest and most powerful family in town politically. Carl…

    He Is Able

      2 Timothy 1:12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. He is able … Allow these three words to sink in just a minute, I just did. Oh, I’m sure that we know this, and if I may, that’s part of the trouble. We know all kinds of things, but at times, we’ve got to come back to this fundamental truth, He is able. Yes, our world is filled with trouble, pain, and sorrow, but when wasn’t…

    The Color Of Age

       Have you ever noticed, that the trees are at their most colorful, when their leaves are at their oldest stages? This time of year, we celebrate the red, yellow, and even brown accents that Fall brings. We know the next stage will be limbs of glistening white, and those are filled with beauty as well.

    S.T.A.R.T. 7: Timing

Let’s be honest, in business, cost is a factor. It must not be the only one, but it is one. We chose this means, not only because of price,…

    Hisbits: Pyle, Sprague, and Lawson

    ​ When I think of the Andy Griffith show, I think of some roles individually, and others as a group. Of the groups, two that come to mind are Floyd and Goober, and Goober and Howard.
