“Brooksie’s Walking Cane” by Doug Fincher

January 23, 2017 - Last week Pam and I made our bi-monthly Sam’s Wal-Mart-Ralph & Kakoo’s trip to Lufkin. Since we’d be shopping in some large stores, I took my walking cane in the car just in case I needed it. Since I have neuropathy in my feet, the cane helps me keep my balance while walking. We parked at Sam’s and had taken few steps towards the store when an elderly lady came wheeling toward me in an electric shopping cart. “Here, Sir..Here”  ”Let me help you”, she said. I told her I was fine and thanked her as she walked away.

Pride in What You Have by Doug Fincher

“Let the redeemed of the Lord say so..” Psalms 107:2

January 16, 2017 - I was a college sophomore when I bought my first car. It was a black twelve-year old ‘41 Ford. Jones Chevrolet in Center, Texas stored it for me eight months while I paid for it. It cost me $495 and I couldn’t wait to drive it home.

I painted the dash tomato red and put a wheel cover and steering knob on it before driving it to ETBC to show it off. Parking it every day in front of the dining hall assured me that everyone saw it. I was proud of that car!!

"Jeremy" by Doug Fincher

December 12, 2016 - In 1984, I became the Pastor of The Magnolia Baptist near Vinton, Louisiana in a community called “Big Woods”.  It was a utopia for anyone wanting peace and quiet.  The church was so hidden on a backwoods road that that there were days that not a single vehicle passed through “The Woods”.   I was particularly overjoyed when I learned that my sister Meri had married my friend Mike Duggan and that they’d be living only six miles from me.  My sister’s living near me not only gave me her excellent company……it also gave me her excellent cooking.
