Who needs man-made facsimiles?

To the editor:

This letter concerns the Ten Commandments. As someone who believes the testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ, I am glad the Ten Commandments are not allowed to be displayed in our government buildings.

God, our father, himself removed the laws written on tablets of stone and replaced them with a much greater commandment.

Believe in my son and if you don't believe in him, believe his works. He is the living word of God and sums all laws and all testaments into a New Testament and commandment.

John 13:34: A new commandment I give unto you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one to another.


It is my hope and prayers that this would be the heart of America and all nations and for whoever would dare argue with God.

Try pet foster care

To the editor:

I am writing to encourage people to provide foster care for pets. I have foster-cared one cat so far, and he has now been adopted into a loving home.

The Washington County Humane Society furnished me with the supplies necessary. I furnished the home and the love. I have three cats of my own, so there was an adjustment period. Eventually, everyone learned their places in the pecking order.

If you're not sure about purchasing a pet, try foster care instead. This will work well for both parties involved. There is a large selection to choose from.

If we can get enough people to do foster care, maybe no more animals will be destroyed.

Best wishes for new year

To the editor:

Thanksgiving Day is past. I think time has ceased marching on and has taken up running. Christmas quickly knocked on our front door, the birthday of our savior and Lord. We are so thankful for his birth, teachings and sacrifice.

Holidays give us memories to be stored for future reference. Joy, happiness, laughter will embrace and mingle with pain, tears and sorrow.

The glory of our living God will break through the darkness and we will make it. With heavy hearts and tears damp on our cheeks, we will vow not to give up and confront our challenges. As we move through busy daily routines and quiet times, let us remember in whatever direction we take, a loving friend is already there.

In the New Year may we find happiness in our friendships, fellowships, our personal loves.

Let us keep the word of God within reach and our knees flexible as we learn to take one day at a time. Laughter is good medicine, we need to take double and triple doses of it. Have a very happy New Year.

Fine care at VA

To the editor:

Rarely does the community comment on the professional care provided the war veterans at the Martinsburg Medical Center. The doctors and nursing staff are to be complimented for their dedication to their vocation when dealing with their patients' care and medicinal needs.

They perform their duties in a professional manner when attending to a patient's best interest and feelings during their treatments.

I feel fortunate to have Dr. Iris Rowe and Dr. Jeffry Spoon as the source for my health care and well- being.
