Okay guys, I gure this tip is in your interest too, just to understand what your wife, girlfriend, or sisters go through each month, you can be a better support when they are SUFFERING! Premenstrual syndrome is the name given to a constellation of emotional, psychological, and physical symptoms that occur during the last couple of weeks of the menstrual cycle that interfere with a womans quality of life. Common symptoms include abdominal pain, breast pain and swelling, muscle and/or joint pain, headaches, depression, anger, anxiety, irritability, bloating, weight gain, difculty sleeping, food cravings, difculties concentrating, forgetfulness, lack of sexual interest and confusion. Some women that suffer badly from PMS may be hurting two weeks of every month. Women rarely tell their male bosses that they are not coming into work because of PMS it is still a taboo subject, and so most women that get PMS suffer in silence. Or they take something for pain control, which deals with the symptoms but not the cause. Most commonly, PMS is caused by a lack of, or an imbalance in the sex hormones estrogen and progesterone, and also cortisol. POP QUIZ: What is the raw material nutrient that estrogen, progesterone and cortisol are made from? drum roll saturated fat and cholesterol! So are you avoiding quality saturated fat, such as butter for example? Estrogen dominance over progesterone is frequently linked to PMS symptoms, and is also interestingly enough, thought to be a causative factor in breast cancer and uterine cancer, and prob ably cervical and ovarian cancer as well. So hormonal balancing can go a long way to ridding oneself of PMS and preventing disease. POP QUIZ BONUS QUESTION: What can women easily do today, and tomorrow, and every day after to reduce their estrogen levels? The answer? Go to bed early to get enough dark time. Melatonin controls estrogen levels. Women that are suffering severely may nd it helpful to stop taking estrogen only birthcontrol pills, and they could speak to their healthcare provider about getting bio-identical progesterone. If you are under a lot of stress, progesterone is often shunted off to help build cortisol, your stress coping hormone, which explains why stress increases PMS symptoms. Therefore anything that can be done to reduce stress, would reduce the need for cortisol, which would help maintain progesterone levels and reduce PMS symptoms. Another probable contributing factor to estrogen dominance is the quantity of soy isolate foods like soy milk, soy cheese, soy protein powders and bars, soy oil, soy lecithin, MSG, etc. that people are consuming these days, believing them to be healthier alternatives to dairy or other real food. If you suffer from PMS, do not consume soy isolate products. Dealing with the xenoestrogens, those synthetic chemicals used in plastics is tougher dont use those hard plastic lexan waterbottles with the recycling symbol #7, as the BPA (Bisphenol A) in them is a xenoestrogen that can leach into the water, and then bind with your estrogen receptors. Choose waterbottles made of #2, #4 or #5 instead. Store your food in glass or ceramic rather than plastic, and if you insist on microwaving your food, do not microwave in plastic or use plastic wrap. Xenoestrogens are frequently also put in the hormones fed to cattle to fatten them up for slaughter (guess what too much estrogen makes cattle fat, just like it makes women fat!), so choose organic meats and poultry to be certain you are not consuming extra xenoestrogens in your food. Exercise and careful sauna use can help eliminate xenoestrogens via sweating, although fully removing these toxins may take years. Glycemic control (blood sugar control) is very important in hormone regulation, because insulin, which controls our blood-sugar, is a master-regulator hormone, and if there is a problem with insulin, it will throw off the balance of all the hormones including estrogen. Chronically high insulin levels leads to insulin resistance which leads to estrogen dominance. So, reduce your intake of sugar and our products, and instead choose above-ground vegetables, and whole grains and legumes as your carbohydrate, and consume them with quality protein and fat in order to slow the sugar absorption into the bloodstream. Bottom line us guys have it a lot easier than the girls. If it was up to us to have babies, it would be the end of the human race. I rst told you about Billy Roy Thompson 14 years ago, uh ve year old neighbor who used Ta come over n eat boiled peanuts with me. Wed chunk the hulls in Sweet Taters ower bed fer mulchn. Uh few months ago I brung yuh up ta date about his football scholarship n how he came by the nickname of Oak. I told yuh about uh cheerleader, named Nellie, he befriended. Nellie is the girl whos boyfriend left her n then she found out she was pregnant. Billy splained to her how he gured her baby wouldnt likely want ta miss out on life n she decided against abortion. What with car troubles, doctor visits, n just needn somebody ta be uh soundn block, Nellie has come ta realize what uh friend Oak is. It seems every time Nellie gets in uh pinch, Oak is there for er, when most of her old friends dont have time for er. She told Oak hes the only one at school she can count on. Nellie is studyn ta be uh nurse. I here tell she does charity work at the hospital when she can. Like Oak, she seems ta look out fer folks too. She n Oak have hit it off. Theyve been haven uh good time together but neither one considered the time theyve spent together as daten. Last week, they was playn put put golf. Nellie told Oak she was plann ta adopt out her baby. Ta both their surprise, Oak said, Ive got uh better idea. Why dont you marry me n Ill adopt the baby ? Nellie said, Why would you want ta do that? Oak said, Partly cause youre more fun than any other girl Ive spent time with, partly cause youre the purtiest girl Ive ever seen, Partly cause you care about people n partly cause I already love yer unborn child. Nellie said, Oak, I didnt see that comen. Oak said, Neither did I, but it feels right to me. I dont know about yall but when I found this out I started rootn fer them two (er three). Sincerely Yourn Cracola OLustee (Cracker fer short )www.greenepublishing.com Wednesday, April 17, 2013 2A Madison County CarrierVIEWPOINTS& OPINIONS Iron Lady National SecurityJoe Boyles Guest ColumnistMargaret Thatcher, Britains prime minister from 1979-1990, has died at the age of 87. To date, she is the only woman to have served as pm for the worlds oldest democracy. Her tough stance against the old Soviet Union in the early 1980s earned her the title of Iron Lady from Tass, the Soviet news/propaganda agency. Admittedly, she was a tough old bird. When Thatcher came to power, Britain was a mess. The Labour or liberal government had been in power for years and had emasculated the economy with socialist policies that had nationalized nearly every aspect of British life. Runaway ination, labor strikes, and unemployment ruled the island nation. I had an opportunity to see this rst hand. From 1973-76, I lived in southeastern England, courtesy of an Air Force assignment. My family and I were fairly isolated from the malaise that ruled the country, but we saw its effects in our travels and on the nightly BBC news. In the 1979 parliamentary election, Labours answer was to double-down do the same thing as before, only more. Thatcher, a Tory or conservative, offered something different dismantling big government, deregulation, and a return to free market solutions. The British people were desperate and so, the Tories took the majority of seats in Parliament, vaulting their leader, Margaret Thatcher, into the role as prime minister. Thatchers economic policies did not catch re immediately. Many vacant civil servant positions helped shoot the unemployment rate to nearly 13 percent by 1982. By this time, she had an ideological soul mate in Americas new president, Ronald Reagan. Now, these economic policies began to show fruit as tight scal policies ratcheted down ination. Growth rate accelerated to 8 percent and unemployment, always a lagging indicator, began to inch down. Ination quickly came down and price stability returned to every market. Before long, full employment was achieved and the Tories were rewarded by winning reelection. Thatcher connected with Reagan on another front their reaction to Communism and the specter of the Soviet Union. Together, these two joined a couple of Poles, labor leader Lech Walesa and Pope John Paul II, to pressure Soviet leaders to allow the peoples of Eastern Europe greater freedom and autonomy. The rot of Communism began to show as freedom spread through Poland to neighboring countries and eventually, through the Soviet republics. By 1989, the fragile totalitarian regime crumbled and the Soviet Union was no more. Margaret Thatcher played a key role in that outcome. No wonder the Soviets gave her the title of iron lady, meant to deride, but instead, a tting epitaph. Thatcher had other moments where her iron will was demonstrated such as her unbending reaction to labor strikes and her reaction to the 1982 Falklands crisis. To paraphrase Sir Thomas More, she was a woman for all seasons. There is a myth in popular culture that conservatives are antiwomen. Nothing could be farther from the truth and Margaret Thatcher, arguably the most powerful female world leader to date, disproves that notion. While I agree that as a gender, women tend to be more liberal than men, there have been plenty of principled women like Thatcher who have espoused smaller government, less regulation and free market principles which dominate conservative thinking. Conservatives celebrate this independence. Slowed in recent years by strokes and declining health, Thatcher had slipped from public life, but I doubt she held President Obama in high regard. She ideologically opposed nearly everything he stands for. Im not sure who the modern day successor to Margaret Thatcher is. There are plenty of candidates, but it will take a unique set of characteristics to supplant her. This much I do know she made her mark on history and has earned her rest. Well done, good and faithful servant. Amen. Jim Deitrich Guest ColumnistCRACKER SEZ Health & Wellness TipsfromFrank NathanExecutive Director Lake Park of MadisonDID YOU KNOW.? ONE TA COUNT ON

From Page 1AAttorney. Thurmans services would be under a one-year contract. That done, one of Thurmans biggest projects for the Town of Greenville is the get all of its ordinances into a computer database that could be quickly searched whenever needed, and the council would need to authorize $400 a year to have a company, Municode, maintain that database and keep it backed up. Municode does the same for towns and cities all over the country; as a member community of Municode, Greenville would be able to not only search its own database but those of similar communities as well. It would provide the town attorney with a timely way to document and support any legal advice she gives the council, and also enable the town ofcials to provide quick, documented answers to residents who want to know why something is done this way or that. Residents could also go online and look up the information for themselves. The project would be a massive one, Thurman told the council, going back as far as the 1930s, and there were some hard copies of ordinances that were missing from les, pr obably stored somewhere in the Town Hall. These would have to be found and entered as well. When it came time for Department Heads to report, Town Grant Consultant Jim Parrish told the Council that he had managed to get a oneyear extension on a ve-year grant that had been paying for well-water testing at an old landll site, as required by DEP. There was about $18,000 left of that grant, and the extra year would allow the town to use that money to pay for one more years worth of testing. However, there was no grant renewal for subsequent years after that. As of November 2014, barring another source of funding being found, Greenville will have to take on the annual expense for as long as the DEP mandates possibly another ten years, if not more, depending on what the testing reveals. After hearing other department head reports, the council adjourned. Interlocal Cont. From Page 1Aing Department to get the actual building permits. This would also hold for home rehabs that would bring sup-par housing up to code. Council members discussed the matter for several minutes and came to the general agreement that it was something that hadnt been handled correctly in the past, and since the town lacked an ofcial building department and there was so little new construction going on anyway, it was easier to fold everything into the county ofce. The Council voted to ask Town Clerk Kimberly Ream, Town Consultant Jim Parrish and Town Attorney Christine Thurman to draw up an interlocal agreement with the county and bring it back to the Councils next meeting for a vote. If approved by both the Greenville Town Council and the Madison County Commission, it would take effect. The Madison County Relay For Life committee is hosting a special Survivors Dinner that will be held at the Fellowship Baptist Church on Tuesday, April 18. Each cancer survivor will be treated to a special dinner of pork and side dishes. Dinner begins at 6:00 pm and will feature entertainment from the Madison County High School Cowboy Nights. The guest Survivor Speaker will be Julia Sirmon Waldrep. All cancer survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer) from the Madison County area are invited to walk the rst lap of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life to celebrate their victory over cancer. The Survivors Lap (to start the Relay event off) will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, April 26. All cancer survivors will also have special recognition during the night of Relay, as well as refreshments under the Survivors Tent during the Relay event.

Cancer Survivor Dinner Planned For April 18RELAY FOR LIFE is an 18-hour journey providing the light and dark of day and night to parallel the physical effects, emotions and mental state of a cancer patient while undergoing treatment. RELAY FOR LIFE begins during the day, when the sun is shining bright and the excitement and energy is owing through the community. The setting sun symbolizes the time when a patient is diagnosed with cancer. The day is getting darker and this represents the cancer patients state of mind as he or she feels that life is coming to an end. As the evening goes on it gets colder and darker, just as the emotions of the cancer patient does. Around 1:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. represents the time when the cancer patient starts treatment. They become exhausted, some sick, not wanting to go on, possibly wanting to give up. As a participant, you have been walking and feel much the same way. You are tired, want to sleep, maybe even want to go home, but you cannot stop or give up. Around 4:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. symbolizes the coming of the end of treatment for the cancer patient. Once again they are tired, but they know they will make it. The sun rising represents the end of treatment for the cancer patient. They see the light at the end of the tunnel and know that life will go on. The morning light brings on a new day full of life and excitement for new beginnings for the cancer patient. As a participant, you will feel the brightness of the morning and know that the end of the RELAY is close at hand. When you leave the RELAY, think of the cancer patient leaving their last treatment. Just as you are exhausted and weak, so is that person after treatment. But a new day has arrived and we are continuing to take up the ght against cancer. REMEMBER: There is no nish line until we nd a cure.Relay For LifeCancer does not stop for nighttime

The printing of the free books was possible due to generosity of the authors, publishers, and book manufacturing companies. Although it is too late to be a giver this year, those interested in participating in the future can sign up for the WBN mailing list for news and updates on World Book Night 2014. World Book Night will take place on April 23, 2013. World Book Night in the U.S. is a non-prot organization and has 501(c)3 nonprot status. World Book Night U.S. is supported by publishers, Barnes & Noble, the American Booksellers Association, the American Library Association, Ingram Content Group, FedEx, printers, and paper companies; a full list of sponsors is at our website.

Who Is Helping Give Out Half a Million Free Books Across America On April 23rd? The Greenville Public Library Is!By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. Every three years, the alumni of Madison County Training School get together and celebrate memories and friendships that last a lifetime. MCTS, as the school was and still is affectionately known, will hold its seventh three-year school reunion for the MCTS Tigers, July 26 through 28 in Madison. Previous school reunions have been held at MCTS and Madison County High School in 1995, 1998, 2001, 2004, 2007, 2010 and now 2013. Old classmates travel back to Madison to meet up with many, many friends and classmates, visit family still living in Madison and see what has changed and what has stayed the same about the neighborhoods and the small town community of their childhood memories. Time ies, and before you know it, another three years have gone by, and the School Reunion Planning Committee is putting together another three-year celebration for everybody who ever attended MCTS during the years it served the Madison community (1930 until 1968). The reunions have now been going on for 21 years. The reunion festivities will begin with Registration on Friday night followed by a picnic and a banquet on Saturday and ending with church services and a luncheon on Sunday. Anyone who attended MCTS and plans to attend this years reunion, or needs more information, please contact MCTS Tigers Secretary, Jennyethyl Elliot, at (850) 576-4535.Class Reunion Festivities Planned for MCTS By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. There are still plenty of sign-up slots left for the 24/7 Bible Reading in the Gazebo at Four Freedoms Park. For the last several years, the Ministerial Association of Madison has organized the marathon Bible read-through, from Genesis to Revelation. During the days leading up to the National Day of Prayer, people sign up to read aloud passages from the Bible in 15-minute segments. This year, the Bible Reading begins at 6 p.m. Sunday evening, April 28, and continues until the National Day of Prayer begins on Thursday evening, May 2. Kay Harris, who is in charge of the sign-up list, says that about half of the slots are lled, meaning there are still plenty more available. People can sign up for longer blocks of time if they wish, or volunteer for different time slots on different days. It would also be a great project for a church group, Sunday School class, AWANA Club, Bible club, youth group or civic organization, to sign up for a block of time and divide the 15-minute segments among its members. For more information on the Bible reading sign-up times still available, contact Kay Harris at (850) 973-3238. Sign-ups For Bible Reading Still OpenBy Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc.

We walk or sit with shoulders hunched and spines out of alignment. We wear shoes that keep us off balance. We reach for things overhead or bend over to pick things up from the ground in ways that are cumulatively detrimental to our bodies. Tyler Coody, graduate of Madison County High School and the University of Central Florida, (who will soon be doing graduate studies in the health science of human movement in Arizona), frequently observes people and the way they move, noting especially the kind of Type 1 errors that most people make but dont even think about. He sees these types of errors even in 18 and 19-yearolds. It is these types of simple errors that he addresses as part of an overall wellness program; helping people learn the correct way to sit, stand up, or get up from the oor, in addition to the usual exercises and training. Faulty repetitive motions that are detrimental to the joints and muscles can add up over time. Correcting these is a matter of breaking bad habits and substituting good ones that will help people increase their range of motion and agility, as well as do simple things like stand for longer periods without pain. This concept is what underlies his approach to wellness, as the Fitness and Wellness Coordinator at NFCCs Kelly Center, a gym with state-of-the-art workout equipment. The Kelly Center came about when NFCC was awarded a grant for a facilities upgrade, and realized that tness played a very important part in the productiveness of students and faculty. When it comes to use of the facilities, the rst priority is the students; any students taking a three-hour class or more have access to the center and its equipment. The Center itself is operated by a 12to 15-member student staff. Next are the alumni, who can enroll in a 17-week program for $91. Even so, the center still had room for more, so NFCC is reaching out into the community, promoting the Kelly Center as part of an overall individual wellness program. The center offers a punch card for members of the community, ideal for people who cant make regular visits because of busy schedules. They do not lose time as they would with traditional monthly payments, because the card covers a specic number of visits rather than a specic period of time. The other hurdle is the term tness itself; many people nd the concept daunting, because they believe it is a difcult, if not impossible goal for them to achieve. Since it is also used interchang eably with wellness, it makes wellness seem like a difcult goal as well. Not so, Coody told the audience. He asked them to imagine an arched line drawn on a chalkboard; at one end of the line was tness and at the other end of the line was sickness. Wellness would be somewhere in the middle of that line. It is possible to be in a state of wellness without being an athlete. In fact, the ideal place for most individuals is a spot somewhere between wellness and total tness. Like everything else in life, tness is scaleable. Training and exercises can be modied and adapted. Simply because people cant do an exercise, they shouldnt give up, because it can be modied to something they can do. If they cant do squats, they can sit down in a chair and get up again. If they cant run, they can walk instead. Another thing that helps is people going to the gym in groups. The camaraderie of groups of friends provides support and energy for reaching and maintaining wellness goals. Every January, the Center hosts the Sentinel Slim-Down, a local version of The Biggest Loser contest. This year, 106 people participated, losing an average of 12 to 15 pounds each. The winner, or biggest loser as the case may be, dropped 46 pounds. Coody encouraged those in the audience to call or come by the Center to talk to him about what the Center offers. Its part of our community now, and my hope is that it will become a cornerstone of our health and tness in the future, he said. We have a great facility but its just an empty building if youre not in it.

The event, now entering its fty-fth year, is one of Madison Countys longest-running continuous events. For many, the question may be who was Pot Williams? The short answer is he was a man who made an incredible and indelible impact on Madison, but of course, there is much more to the story. Born Ruben Sharp Williams, Jr. on January 27, 1902, in Tallahassee, Florida, during Teddy Roosevelts administration, Pot left Tallahassee right after high school to attend the Madison Normal School, sometime around 1920. The school was located at the corner of Base and Duval Streets, where the CVS and the School Board are today. Pot got off the train from Tallahassee at the Madison depot, walked the dirt road into the center of town and, as he approached, witnessed a shoot-out in the street! He almost turned around and headed back to the big city of Tallahassee. Pot took a job at the Bank of Madison, which in those days was located where the Hickory Hill Auction Store is now, on South Range Avenue. Thats where he met Alice Cantey, who later became his bride. When he lost his job at the bank during the Great Depression, he found employment as a rural postal carrier for the United States Post Ofce, and would hold that job until the day he died. Pot and Alice Williams had three children; Ruben Sharpe Williams, III, known as Bo, second son, Francis Williams, and daughter, Bess Williams Maxwell, of Douglasville, Georgia. Incidentally, Bess has only missed attending one tournament in over a half century and plans on attending Mays event. Pots oldest son, Bo, became an avid golfer and won many amateur championships and has had the honor of winning his dads memorial tournament numerous times over the years. According to Bess, no one is entirely sure how Pot got his unusual nickname. She shared a couple of the theories shes heard regarding its origins with us. One is he got the moniker because he had a pot belly as a child. Another, that he liked to play with his mothers pots as a youngster. Regardless, Pot Williams enjoyed golf and played a couple of times a week at the Valdosta Golf Club, along with friends. It was at that club that the idea of a county club for Madison would be born. According to Ashley Rock Fraleigh, Pot Williams was one of a dozen or so local citizens that were willing to put their money, labor and love into the development of the country club. What might now feel like a short story took several years of dedicated effort by many, but Pot and wife, Alice, were at the forefront of the historical effort that built a golf course from a corn eld in 1952. Fast forward about six years, to a day that changed the history of Madison Country Club. That day would become part of a legend, a moment frozen in time, destined to be remembered as a permanent piece of club lore. The day was Sunday, January 26, 1958, just one day before Pot Williams 56th birthday. Like so many other Sundays, Pot, Alice and their family attended Sunday services at the Presbyterian Church, where he served as a deacon. The church was located on North Range Avenue then. After church, as usual, the family gathered for Sunday dinner, and afterwards Pot and his brother-inlaw, Frank Cantey, headed to the country club. Pot enjoyed the club and his association with other members. He had seen it blossom from just an idea into something tangible and valuable. Pot and Frank Cantey ended up playing in a foursome with Dr. Julian Durant and Ferd Naughton. Actually, there are a couple of different stories about who was in the foursome, but there is no confusion about what happened next. Pot and his group teed off from the number one tee. Pot was an exceptional golfer, noted for his short game and the way he took care of his equipment. His rst shot ended up well-positioned on the right-center side of the number one fairway. He examined the line up for his second shot, and took his stance to hit the ball. He struck the ball exactly as he intended, and the ball landed on the green. It was a great shot, but within seconds, Reuben Sharp Pot Williams lay dead on the fairway; gone in an instant from a massive heart attack. To say that his death sent shock waves throughout the country club and the community would be a gross understatement. His death was untimely and unexpected, and even though he was playing golf with a doctor, he could not be saved. It was undeniable, however, that Pot Williams died doing exactly what he loved, playing golf at Madison Country Club. Members soon decided that Pot Williams should be remembered, because of his commitments to both the community and the country club. The First Annual Pot Williams Golf Tournament was held that very year. Downing Gray, who was playing on the FSU Golf Team, played in that rst tournament. Gray went on to play on the Walker Cup Team and also played in the prestigious Masters Tournament. In the beginning, the Pot Williams Golf Tournament was by invitation only. Golfers from throughout the region would clamor for an opportunity to participate. Today, the event is open to all golfers, members and non-members alike. The three-day event offers golfers a practice round on Friday, and competition on Saturday and Sunday. Included in the $125 entry fee is dinner on Friday and Saturday night, and entertainment Saturday evening. The entire membership of Madison Country Club invites you to become an active part of a living legacy. Plan now to participate in the 55th Annual Pot Williams Golf Tournament, May 3, 4 and 5, at the Madison Country Club.

Path of Faith Madison County Carrier Wednesday, April 17, 2013 3B The PulpitRev. Robert Holmes, Pastor,Architillery Missionary Baptist Church Leviticus 19:17 says, Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbor and not suffer sin upon him. My parents did not raise us to hate anyone, even if they did us wrong. I was raised up in the 50s and 60s so segregation was alive and blacks and whites had to endure. It was an awful tragedy in America, but, with the Lords steady hand, we made it through. It left scars on many youngsters and today, as adults, some of us are still trying to work our way to freedom. Any time you hate because you were raised to hate, then you are a slave to hate. That is why I John 3:11 says, For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Despite being raised to hate, there is no excuse to hate. We can see with our own eyes that people are human beings and need love, just like we need love. Pastors, Sunday School teachers, elders of the church and messengers of God have a duty to spread love. God is depending on us to keep hope alive through love. What does hate do to a person? It blinds his heart, mind, soul and spirit. It makes it impossible for him to see clearly. The hymn writer stated, I once was blind but now I see. The only way you can see clearly is through the eyes of Jesus. Ephesians 1:18 days, The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may knowthe riches of the glory of his inheritance. When we know Jesus, we are enlightened to a higher level of understanding of humanity. Many were raised to hate in my childhood (in the 50s and 60s) but some people hate for many reasons. One reason is because of vengeance. Here again, there is no excuse to hate because the Lord said in Romans 13:19, for it is written, vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore, if someone harms you, or persecutes you for Christs sake, if we havent done anything wrong we need to give it to the Lord in prayer. We need to forgive, as stated in Colossians 3:13: For, in bearing one another and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. I would like to close this topic on hate by saying the only thing we should hate is sin. Instead of hating sin, which I consider speaking in the negative, I would say love your enemy and let your soul be about loving and not hating. Furthermore, John 5:1 says, Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God Also, I John 5:4 says, For whosover is born of God overcometh the world, even our faith. Since most people in the world believe in God, we are born of God. If we are born of God, we have the ability to overcome anything in the world, including hate. If we call on the name of Jesus, we shall overcome hate or any other negative. Remember, the Lord has many mansions and one of them belongs to you and one belongs to me. Our eyes have not seen, nor have our ears heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man what God has in store for those who love instead of hate. There is No Excuse to Hate
There is a Zen parable about a man who surprised a sleeping tiger while walking through the jungle. The ferocious animal pursued the man, causing him to throw down his bag and walking stick, as he ran for his life. With the tiger tightly on his heels, the man came to a steep cliff. He saw a vine dangling over the edge, quickly grabbed it, and began shimmying down the vine just narrowly escaping the teeth of the tiger who now leered hungrily at him from the rim above. This put the traveler in a real predicament. He was high in the air with no place to go. The vicious tiger was overhead; j agged rocks we re below; and he was clinging to a vine that was not nearly long enough to lower him to the ground. Then, as if things could not be direr, a mouse emerged from its den and began to nibble at the vine. At this precise moment the traveler saw a perfect, plump strawberry right there within arms reach, growing out of the face of the cliff. He picked it, ate it, and exclaimed, Wow!!! That is the best strawberry Ive ever tasted in my entire life! The story ends there (leaving the man hanging in a lurch), but the lesson keeps going: If the man had been preoccupied with the rocks below (his possible future), or the tiger above (his past troubles), or the mouse chewing away at the vine (his vanishing present), he would have missed the strawberry within the present moment. He would have missed the joy of now. Now: There are few words with more potency but hardly a word more fallow or underutilized, because most of us do not live in the now. We dont even aspire to live in the broader category of today, having traded the present for a regretful past or a fearful future, a trade that leaves no life left to live. Those of us who have fixed our eyes on the rearview mirror feel the days gone by slashing angrily at our heels with the unanswerable questions of regret. Where did my life go off the rails? How could I have made such terrible mistakes? What could I have done differently? Why hasnt God (or my parents or my spouse or my employer) treated me fairly or at least as well as others? Such questions only end with inadequate replies, proving the axiom true: There is no future in the past. But there is no future in the future either; not a view of the future that is tainted with fear! Yet, countless people live their lives in a hypothetical time machine, always worrying and fretting over a distant yet to come that might never materialize. These future-fearing people fill the air with their own questions, questions that usually begins with the words, What if? What if I lose my job? What if I am diagnosed with cancer? What if I run out of money? What if the economy collapses? Again, such questions cant be answered. They can only rob the worriers of the time they have today. And of course there are those who are preoccupied with the future differently. They arent worried. They are enthused. They have schemes and plans for tomorrow, but tomorrow never comes. They say things like: Ill do it one day (whatever it is). Life will be better next weeknext monthnext yearnext decade. Eventually Ill get around to it. In the end I will achieve my goals. But in the end, the end comes far too soon, and all the best-laid plans never materialize. If we are engrossed with the snarling monsters of our past, obsessed with the fearful uncertainties of tomorrow, or spend our precious few days prepping for an ethereal future, this much is certain: We give away today; we miss the now. Right now might not be your greatest moment, but now is all you have. Give now all you have, and you might be surprised at the joy you will discover.Ronnie McBrayer is a syndicated columnist, speaker, and author of multiple books.

Path of Faith Madison County Carrier Wednesday, April 17, 2013 5B By Lynette Norris Greene Publishing, Inc. Abigails story takes place against a complex backdrop of social upheaval, political uncertainty, palace intrigue, and often chilling violence. The 200-year period of the Judges has come to an end, with a growing desire among the Israelites for a centralized monarchy, like those of their neighboring nation-states, The prophet Samuel has given in and anointed Saul, of the tribe of Benjamin, as the first King of Israel. Saul is able to unite the scattered tribes into a cohesive group, but his erratic behavior causes his popularity to rise and fall. Then he makes the mistake of disobeying the Prophet Samuel by sparing the life of a heathen king. Furious, Samuel withdraws his support. Clandestine political maneuvering kicks into high gear. Samuel secretly goes before the elders of Judah and anoints David as Sauls replacement. Sauls behavior becomes increasingly erratic and paranoid, providing an opening for David to enter his court as a skilled harp-player, capable of soothing the Kings dark, foul moods. David loses no time making palace alliances, but as he grows in popularity at court and among the people, the kings jealousy grows as well, until one day Saul hurls a spear at his once-beloved harp-player. David then flees into the desolate hill country and soon gathers a small army of mercenaries from among the outlaws roaming the hills. It is during this time of treacherous, uncertain and shifting alliances, that Abigail (meaning a fathers joy) and her husband Nabal (fool or foolish one) come on the scene, in 1 Samuel 25. Nabal is a wealthy, powerful landowner, whose shepherds have met up with Davids mercenaries from time to time and been treated well by them or at least, not harmed. David believes Nabal is indebted to him because of this, so when his band is running low on food, he calls on Nabals hospitality debt to help. This was a common custom of the time, and people were expected to honor such a debt. Expected, but not required. As David soon finds out, Nabal possesses little of the social graces of the day. He does, however, seem to have an inflated sense of his own importance. Used to behaving boorishly toward people and treating them in any manner he pleases, he couldnt care less about Davids former palace connections. He believes that he can, without consequence, metaphorically flip off a former court favorite: the man who would be king, who at the moment happens to be leading a band of (ahem) outlaw mercenaries. Of course David is infuriated, but his reaction is completely out of proportion to the offense; he vows to annihilate Nabal and all that is his, setting out with his army to do just that that. Into this dangerous, testosterone-addled hornets nest of belligerent, arrogant stupidity on one side and belligerent, hotheaded, wounded pride on the other, steps Abigail. In 1 Sam 25:3, she is introduced as a woman of good understanding and of a beautiful countenance, in contrast to Nabal, who is churlish and evil in his doings. When she hears what Nabal has done, she correctly realizes that her husband has finally gone too far, insulted the wrong person and stepped on the wrong toes. Everyone in Nabals household, including herself, is now marked for death, unless she does something fast. She quickly rallies the household servants into preparing a feast for the renegades, some 400 strong. That Nabals household is indeed capable of providing a feast for so many at short notice is an indication of his wealth and resources. That Abigail can get all the servants to obey her with such alacrity suggests that in this time period, when Israel was still little more than a collectionWomen of the Bible: Abigail...Story continued on 7B..

Path of Faith Madison County Carrier Wednesday, April 17, 2013 7B of clans and tribes, many women still held considerable authority over household matters; or it could indicate that this is not the first time she has had to put out a fire and step in with tact and diplomacy to undo damage Nabal has done. Detractors often leap upon these actions as disobedient and rebellious in an era when a good wife was ruled by her husband, arguing that Abigail simply acted in her own best interest and therefore should not be lauded for her role in averting disaster. Still others, noting that Abigail and David are both described as attractive people, and noting that David later took her as a wife, allege that both were motivated by physical desire as much as self-preservation in agreeing to call off the raid. However, there is no indication that Abigail had ever seen or met David before; when she goes out to meet this band of armed soldiers, she has no way of knowing what will happen. As for acting in her own self-interest, if the only other option is utter destruction of herself, her husband and her entire household, including all the servants, there doesnt seem to have been much else she could have done. When she meets David, she falls at his feet and admits the wrongdoing of her husband. Nabal is his name and folly is with him. (1 Sam 25:25). In verse 28, she takes Nabals wrongdoing upon herself and begs Davids forgiveness as if she herself were the offender, evoking the image of Christ. She also acknowledges that David will indeed be king one day, Because my lord (David) fighteth the battles of the Lord, and evil hath not been found in thee all thy days. This gives David pause, this reminder that he is now the anointed king. This course of revenge, if followed through, will forever taint him, perhaps even cost him the throne. That, together with the sheer surprise of meeting Abigail, her servants and the feast they have brought, cools his anger enough to let him see reason. Nabal might be an idiot, but killing him would be ruinous for the would-be kings future. He admits that he had been bent on utter destruction of her household, but he hearkens to her voice and relents. Abigail returns home to find her husband so drunk she must wait until the next morning to tell him how close he came to death. The news shocks him into an apparent heart attack; 10 days later, he is dead. Later, David sends the widow Abigail a marriage proposal and she accepts. Abigail is remembered as the long-suffering wife of a fool, a wife whose intelligence and quick thinking saved her family from destruction; as a women who is unafraid to take action to save others, even though it is not the accepted thing for a woman to do; as the woman whose words of tact and wisdom saved a king from throwing away his future, and ultimately as the wisest of King Davids wives.
