  • Setting family priorities will yield benefits

    Priorities are peculiar. No matter how dogmatic you try to be, you cannot be totally consistent with most of your priorities.

     

    Let’s suppose you assert, “My family comes before my job.” Then your employer asks you to work overtime three nights in a row.

     

    To say yes means you will not be home in time for the evening meal and the children will probably be in bed when you arrive.

     

    You make this sacrifice because the supervisor’s request is so urgent and you may need the extra money.

     

  • Church to open new preschool program

    Parents in Indian Land will have a new option for preschool this fall when Pleasant Hill United Methodist Church starts a program for 3- and 4-year-olds.

    Amanda Carnes, the church’s director of Christian education, said the church began exploring opening a preschool more than a year ago after a survey of community needs revealed that local parents wanted one.

    “To our knowledge, there is no other Christian-based preschool in Indian Land,” Carnes said.

  • You can choose how you respond to life

    The icons of changing years intrigue me: The innocent new baby representing the new year, the grisly and worn old man for the outgoing year.

    It reminds me of how time changes us. Maybe not as vividly as the icons show for one year, but significantly, none the less.

    Time matures us or causes deterioration. A decade can mature a 6-year-old entering first grade to the point of being a teenager driving an automobile.

    That same decade can move a recently retired person to the point of declining health and even dependent care.
