My dear beautiful sister, you left us way too soon,
And so now in all our hearts
There is such an open wound,
If only you had not taken that dreadful walk,
And called upon just one of us to talk,
I will always wish I could have saved you that day
But I did not know,
That your heart had taken such a blow,
I wish I could have made you realize,
How important you were to all our lives,
But that was not in God’s plans,
You are now in His hands,
Time doesn’t heal all wounds
And our memories will never fade,
On that fateful day your mind was already made,
You were such a brave and fearless one,
But now you rest with the Father and His Son,
I guess what I’m trying to say,
Is that we will all see you again one day,
And now all your pain and suffering is gone,
For our Father in Heaven is still on His throne.

The City of Monticello held their first of four “Our Place” town hall meetings, Thursday night, hosted by assistant to the Mayor for planning, Zach Tucker.
A total of 9 folks attended the meeting, 4 from the TEA party, Tucker, a county employee from Ward 2, and 2 city hall staff, who were signing in attendees (both live in Ward 2), MLive.
The 40 minute presentation dealt with planning and vision concepts.
The discussion, which lasted over an hour, was unexpectedly open to all. The TEA party members and MLive, as well as others made the most of the opportunity to discuss the “SWOT” (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) to our area.
Must be detail oriented and able to work with limited supervision.

Today’s post-Christian world is out to undermine the authority of God’s Word. In fact, our society has become anti-Christian, and the biblical account of Creation is under attack by Bible skeptics as never before. Much is at stake, for the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross is based on the foundational book of Genesis.
Generations of people have been brought up to view the Bible as merely a book; a book containing many interesting stories and moral teachings, but in the end, just a book. This lack of understanding and appreciation for God’s Word explains why people, especially young people, have so many questions about how the Bible relates to issues they face in their lives. These issues include evolution, the age of the earth, abortion, the origin of life, fossils, sexuality, death, racism, marriage, suffering, salvation, dinosaurs, and many other important topics.
