Rule #1: Just Have Fun!

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

We’ve missed something. My pillow still has a tag that reads, “Do not remove under penalty of law,” and even my ketchup bottle sports a label filled with information required by government regulation. So what happened to parades? Nearly every town of any size hosts an annual parade or two but I can’t find anything published by the federal government regulating the things.

Breaking the Daily Grind

Dw.cdrOn a personal level, what does Labor Day mean to you? Maybe the holiday just slipped past so fast you didn’t give it much thought.

Most of us just want a paying job that has a little wiggle room in order to make a little more money. Many throughout Northwest Missouri are underemployed, and the only options are to string together part-time jobs that help make the whole.

Same goes

The Summer of Our Discontent

by Lee H. Hamilton

Despite these last few months of hot and lazy days, it’s been hard not to notice a cold political wind blowing through the country. The magazine Foreign Affairs captured it with its latest cover, a mockup of a travel poster featuring a crumbling U.S. Capitol with the tagline, “See America: Land of Decay and Dysfunction.”

Americans are clearly uneasy. I know it anecdotally, because at virtually

Poosey Digest: Think PIG!

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

It was some of the best advice I’d ever received. I was traveling into town with my friend Zelma and we were running late for a meeting. I’d just rounded a curve, and Boom!, a pickup truck pulled out right in front of me then proceeded to piddle down the highway at 40 mph with a stream of traffic backing up behind us.

Displaying Love

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Love is a popular word these days, but I suspect that many people have no idea what love really is. Most of the time, what I see around me is people engaging in one of two things, neither of which is love. It seems that many people have confused lust for love.

The second mistaken view of love is simply allowing others to do anything they

Good Thinking: Come to the Fair

by Dr. Don Kuehle

The family was enjoying time together at the county fair. The day was sunny and cool; a perfect day to be a fair-goer. We walked through barns filled with cattle, hogs, horses, sheep and goats, chickens and geese. We marveled at the displays of people’s talents and hard work. We rode the Ferris Wheel and the Merry-Go-Round. We watched people match their wits and skills in

She’s My Sister

ShepherdCalls_WPShe’s less than three months old. She had major open heart surgery when she was only a few days old. We had many fearful moments. Today, she still must be fed through a feeding tube; and while she is not growing as fast as hoped, she is growing. My wife was holding her, as you might imagine, very closely. I looked over and said, “Do you want to take her

Work… It’s Good for You

ShepherdCalls_WPThe year was 1952. I was a sophomore in high school in Meridian, Mississippi. Though I weighed just slightly more than 100 pounds, I joined the football team. Practice began several weeks prior to the beginning of school. I realized I was a bit small and knew very little about the game, but I wanted to play and participated in practice. As school began, I swelled with pride when friends

Good Thinking: Grandparents Are Special People

by Dr. Don Kuehle

My wife was off shopping. Normally I would wait for her in the book section. This particular day, however, found me in the card section. There were aisles and aisles of cards; cards for every occasion. One could buy cards for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, retirement, and for new home and old friends. There were cards that expressed a myriad of emotions: “Thinking of You”; “Sorry You’re
