The lakes at The Lakes are no more.
It’s time to clear out the notebook with some quick thoughts and notes.
There’s a proverb that says if you love something, let it go. If it returns, it’s yours. If not, well, it never belonged to you in the first place. But had my son Braden written that proverb it would go more like this: “If you love something and it won’t cooperate, stomp the guts out of it.”
When my father Ira Fulton was just 12 years old, his father stood him in front of a mirror and said, “Ira, this is your competition. Don’t compare yourself to others; just compare yourself with you.” Years later, my father would repeat this scenario, but now he was the father and I was the mirror image.

Pam Brooks said when she told her husband six years ago he could get rid of their backyard pool and install a koi pond, she never imagined he’d end up transforming the entire pool into a pond, or that the transformation would actually reduce their water usage.
Ken Autry is the former pastor at First United Methodist Church on the lake yard in DeFuniak Springs, Florida. I say, “former” pastor only because he has now moved on to another appointment. Those Methodists won’t let their preachers sit still for long. He once shared a letter with his congregation that I have yet to get out of my mind. The letter, while not written to Rev. Autry, had been written by a parishioner who had become quite disgruntled with her pastor. This is not uncommon.

This beautiful, long-haired 5-year-old tuxedo cat is a loving, vocal, loyal sweetheart. His family lost their home to foreclosure and moved on, but no one thought to let him know, so he stayed in the front yard trying to get into the house whenever a real estate agent showed it. Unfortunately, he was waiting for his family to return. More than six weeks later he was rescued and has turned out to be extremely friendly, playful and loving to other cats and humans, and maybe dogs. One of his favorite activities is to sit on your lap to be brushed, which is definitely a priority due to his beautiful long fur. He also enjoys lounging on a cat tree or just sitting in a windowsill to watch birds. Lost our Home promised LB that we would find him a great forever home and that he would never be left behind again. Can you give LB a second chance at a new life?
