Hazlett: My wife’s Bible

Thursday, August 23, 2012

Recently, my wife, Myrna, spent some time in the Akron City Hospital in Akron, Ohio. We did not plan to go there. However, we never know when our health will break and we end up in the hospital. In just a few weeks, Myrna and I will celebrate our 53rd wedding anniversary. I often kid […]

Think about it: The County Fairs

Thursday, August 16, 2012

THE COUNTY FAIR It’s fair time once again. It just seems like we just completed fair time 2011, and here we are, once again, in the middle of fair time 2012. Fair time is an exciting time when people young and old alike enjoy going to their favorite county fair. Our family usually attends the […]

Hazlett: Be Content

Thursday, August 2, 2012

BE CONTENT I well remember when I was in my youth my father telling me that I needed to learn to be content. As time passed by and I became a father I found myself reminding my children of the same lesson, “be content.” I have noticed that people who do not have an abundance […]

The greatest peace

Thursday, July 26, 2012

There is no doubt about it. We all enjoy times of peace in our lives. In today’s world it seems more and more difficult to enjoy those times of peace though. Just about the time we think we can enjoy some peace, we pick up the daily newspaper or turn on the evening news and […]

Hazlett: Be of Good Cheer

Thursday, July 12, 2012

BE OF GOOD CHEER “Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee” Matt. 9:2. Have you ever paused to think about the fact that you only have one life to live on this earth? The older I get the more I realize that time is going fast and that I need to slow […]

Pray and believe

Thursday, July 5, 2012

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, he who seeks find; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened,” Matt. 7:7-8. Prayer does not come easily. That is why the disciples of Jesus […]

The Golden Rule

Thursday, June 28, 2012

How easy it is to forget the Golden Rule. Recently, I have been writing often about subjects that I believe could change our world and make it better; today I am writing about the Golden Rule.

Live in harmony

Thursday, June 21, 2012

“Abraham said unto Lot: Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, for we be brethren” Genesis 13:8.” Just think how different life would be if we the people of this earth would live in harmony one with another. Abraham said to Lot “Let there be no strife between us” Genesis […]

Be kind to one another

Thursday, June 14, 2012

“Be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ sake hath forgiven you.” — Ephesians 4:32. Sometimes I think our world has lost contact with the word kindness. Do you know someone who is an especially kind person? When you hear the word kindness does some one particular immediately […]

What next?

Thursday, June 7, 2012

My father used to say to me, “George you are never too old to learn something new.” The older I get the more I realize that’s very true. I enjoy learning something new every day. Take a few moments, sit down and relax and just think about some of the new things you have learned […]
