Rutherford Weekly's Favorite Readers Recipe 4/24/2014
  This week I will once salute our neighbor in Chesnee, S. C. Buck Creek Baptist Church has a cookbook entitled “Good Eats from Buck Creek”. It is one of the best church cookbooks I have ever seen or used. For me it was a great find. So this week I’m sharing some recipes from Bucks Creek.

Listen To Life
Dr. Joey Faucette
Listen To Life

Made a mistake lately?

As I mentioned yesterday, I was born with a head full of wonderfully curly hair and I was often compared to Shirley Temple as a child. I had no idea who Shirley Temple was since I was a toddler, but I always said “thank you” as my mother taught me. One day, my dad and I were shopping together and I saw a display of Shirley Temple videos. I got all excited and ran up to the videos and grabbed one. I turned around and yelled out to my dad in my loud two-year-old voice, “Look, Daddy! They made a movie about me!” He bought me three of them because I was so adorable.

We all make mistakes, don’t we? We can either take those mistakes and dwell on them or we can count on a divine chuckle along with a little help to turn our mistakes into a grand moment. Today, after you make a mistake, listen for a heavenly laugh and then discover how that mistake transforms into a grand moment for you.

Outdoor Truths

Outdoor Truths
   One of the most enjoyable parts of turkey hunting is just watching the action. It’s not unusual for a gobbler and a few hens to be out of reach for a well-placed shotgun shot but well within a comfortable eyeshot. Not only do you get to see a big tom as he struts and sways but you get to also watch all of the subplots that surround the main story. One of the most entertaining shows happens when the jakes show up. These teenage males gain confidence when they’re with other jakes and they will gang up on an older bird but when by themselves they know they had better keep well away from the action.
