Thank you. Those words just aren't enough for the sacrifice given. Thank you seems to be so little in return for the life that has been payed down for my freedom.
Every now and then a feller has a weekend that is hard to forget. I had one years ago on a beautiful ranch in southern California.
We look around our world, listen to the news, or even look within ourselves and our families and see the frailty, imperfection, and flawed nature of mankind. In Bible words, sin abounds. This is easy to see and cannot be argued away. Man’s nature is to think, “Well I’ve done more good than evil, and I’m certainly doing better than the next guy, so God must be ok with me; I’ll take my chances.”
We’re so thankful for all of the moisture. The rain has greened up the pastures, and a little water is even seeping into the summer pasture ponds. It’s wet—that’s for sure.
This past week, Prather’s Pick, in Wednesday’s Craig Daily Press, reviewed a new cookbook. “Back in the Day Bakery: Made with Love” was written by Cheryl Day and Griffith Day. Besides reading through the cookbook, I checked out my “to try” files, looking for recipes that might appeal to us during this rainy weather. I found one for “Sausage Stew” that has some ingredients that many of us harvest from our gardens in late summer — a great way to use zucchini.
The only thing certain is the uncertainty. And the death penalty — the ultimate penalty — cannot survive without certainty. It's built on it.
This past weekend I read a cookbook — I actually read it, not just looked through the recipes. There’s interesting information in the book for reading, and I enjoyed it a lot. I found the cookbook with new books at the Craig Moffat County Library. “Back in the Day Bakery: Made with Love” was written by Cheryl Day and Griffith Day. The book is published by Artisan, a division of Workman Publishing Company, Inc. The authors have previously published “The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook.”
Asked by members of the community to deliver a short address to those attending Baccalaureate this year, I thought back to one of my favorite books written many years ago that taught me some life lessons that have carried me through both good times and bad.
Having the position of Moffat County Seniors Activity Director gave me opportunity to meet people and know what was happening in Craig and surrounding areas. My columns were mainly about what was going on and who was participating in the events, also local family events and notices, just a basic who’s doing what or who is going where. Since the town was smaller it seemed like everyone knew everyone or had heard of them and local news held a distinct interest to the readers.
This last week has been a whirlwind of emotion with the ruling of Judge R. Brooke Jackson regarding his decision that affects Colowyo Mine. I honestly wonder where common sense has gone sometimes.
Unless you are in college or seminary, how often do you think about how your worldview affects your day-to-day life? Even if you are in college, do ever consider it after you turned in your worldview assignment? Your worldview matters, and as a Christian it is especially important to look at life (and beyond) with the right perspective, or worldview.

Diane Prather shares her love for gardening each year — under the watchful eyes of the cows and calves.
QWA college education is the foundation to a solid future in any given field, and anyone who graduated with a higher education degree knows they’ve gained more than just a diploma. That’s why the Craig Daily Press is thrilled to introduce The Learning Chronicles, which is a new section featuring higher education news that will publish the first Saturday each month.
Last week’s column included a request for recipes using dandelion greens. Miriam Zimmerman of Craig called me midweek to see if I had heard from any readers.
