SFA Band will make an appearance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) – Donna McCollum
For the first time in Stephen F Austin State University’s history, the Lumberjack Marching Band is going to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The marching down New York City streets is the easy part. The more difficult challenge is getting everybody there and keeping them together and on schedule.
By the sound at the SFA Lumberjack Marching Band’s last practice before the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the band is in tune with performance responsibilities.
Where a bit nervousness can be found is watching band director Dr. David Campo go over [more]
God is Good
I am a horseshoer by trade. Some of the horses I work on are very dangerous. So,my wife and I decided to pray scriptures over me before I leave for work. Recently, the Lord saved me from a potentially serious accident when I was shoeing a very large horse during a heavy downpour. I was working on a horse’s hind feet. The owner’s wife walked in with her umbrella open. As she set iit down facing the horse. The horse had an explosive reaction with a kick. It threw me across the barn. Wow, I suffered no injuries anywhere. The following day I returned to horseshoeing as usual.
Keep me in your deepest prayers that I can be spiritually strong enough to show my family what God has done in my life & what he can do in their life if they would only believe also that the spirit of God will be a ever burning flame in my heart & soul that I can go out to be the light & salt of the earth to all the lost people in a dark world that we all live in these days & times!!!
Stop & Smell By Bryon Mengle
We live in a world where time is Scarce. Everyone – speedy cars, quick meetings and fast food. What if each day, we took a time out – pausing to account for every minute. Then in an effort for expediency and efficiency focus one task til it is done, he moves quickly to the next leaving little to no downtime. It’s to this end that golfer Walter Hagen may have coined his infamous reminder, “Remember to stop and smell the roses.”
So, how can we combat the pressure of moving at the world’s pace? I would offer two things:
1. Don’t let To Do lists and challenges consume you. Control what’s in your control … and the rest, as your Frozen-loving daughter could tell you, “Let it go.” Matthew 6:34 says, “Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
2. Simply stop … physically, emotionally and spiritually, and in that moment, key into what the Psalmist wrote in 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God.”
Life moves at a break-neck speed … but we aren’t called to live by the world’s standards. So, go ahead … be still and stop and smell the roses.
Chapped lips, dry hands, sinus issues- it’s all happening thanks to the changing weather. Take a look at the end-caps the next time you’re at a drugs store: lotions, lip balm and Breathe Rite strips are on sale, and let’s not forget the tissues. ‘Tis the season for…
