Burnsville Seventh-Day Adventist Church Shine For Him By Ed Couser Yancey County A little boy loved Jesus very much, and enjoyed hearing his mom and dad read Bible stories to him.

Marlene’s Meditations Legacy by Marlene Houk Burke County Our legacy may bestow upon us that bulbous nose or sprinkling of freckles from our long-gone relatives. Perhaps that fiery temper and musical ability from great-aunt Annie appears again in four-year-old Peter. What is your legacy? Legacies can be heirlooms such as a grandmother’s wedding ring or a treasured secret recipe handed down such as my great-aunt’s peach pie. When his cousin moved to South Africa, my son still acted like him. Quirks and preferences remained the same for my ten-year-old, surprising me with their consistency. He still acted the same...Read More
