Tucker is an 18 month old Blue tick Coon hound belonging to the Towns family of La Vernia. His personality is fun loving, care free, and he has one of the biggest hearts! He loves to chew on anything he can get in his mouth, including things that shouldn’t be chewed, and he loves to play, fetch, run around, and cuddle. He also likes to think he is a lap dog, and I would say his favorite place to be is on the bed! He has long legs he hasn’t quite got the hang of yet, so he can be a tad clumsy, and his favorite pastime is sleeping.More Furred, Finned & Feathered Friends Photos »

As a child, I remember being told that we should treat others the way we would want them to treat us. As a child it is hard to understand that because a child really doesn’t stop to think, they just react to eminent threat. It became a truth when we had to memorize the verse in Sunday school. Luke 6:31 NLT says: “Do unto others as you would like them to do to you.” We recited it several times and the more times we recited it, I started to understand what I was saying. It wasn’t the memorization of it that made it truth; it was that God Himself, through His Word was speaking to my heart. Full Story »
