Liver transplant patient thanks benefactors

In June of this year, I (Ruby) had a liver transplant. My health was bad and getting worse almost daily. I had a lot of healing prayers being said for me and I am here today to thank every one of you for those prayers, because the Lord heard and answered them all.

We also want to thank all of the businesses that let the family set up donation jars and a benefit yard sale and to those that listed or announced the benefit or asked for prayers for me. To Brother John and Rita Shepherd for the prayers and visits at home and UK in Lexington and the Boyds Creek Methodist Church, the Living Faith Church, Highland Methodist Church, Fairview Church of Christ, to the family members and friends that worked so hard taking care of things at home while we were in Lexington and to the many who prayed for us, sent food, for all the calls, cards, visits, words of encouragement and all the donations to us.

You will never know how much all these things have meant to us. We are truly blessed to have people in our family and community who care for others so much. To say thank you doesn’t seem to be enough, but we do graciously “thank you all” and may God richly bless each of you for your kindness.

Ruby and Raymond Eatmon

Bible offers passages in favor of alcohol

As hard as I try, I can muster little Christian charity for religious zealots who claim the right to tell the rest of us what we can drink and where we can buy it.

Truth is I drink almost no alcoholic beverages, just an occasional beer at family gatherings or a glass of wine with a plate of spaghetti. But, in the absence of public intoxication or drunken driving, what I drink really is nobody’s business.
