A look at this week’s highlights (and bloopers!) on Wellsboro Home Page


by Home Page Staff - March 19-20, 2016

It’s time once again to take a look at what happened the past week. The Weekly Highlights are a great way to catch up, but don’t forget that you can always watch the full stories from either our front page or the archives section.
On Saturday, March 12th the students of Wellsboro High School battled against the faculty in the 5th Annual Casey L. Patrick Memorial Basketball Game. Casey was a 2010 Wellsboro High School graduate who passed away in 2011 at the age of 19. She was diagnosed with a rare congenital heart condition known as Eisenmenger’s Syndrome. For the past five years, Casey’s brother, Drew, has organized memorial basketball games in his sister’s honor. Proceeds from the game benefit the Casey L. Patrick scholarship and basketball teams at the high school.
Eastern interior design principles have existed for millennia about how to create these different environments in our homes and they work with absolutely any design style that you have, from mid-century modern to English country.

First, declutter. Clutter causes you to feel scattered and indecisive making life in general feel less manageable. Remember the January segment on getting organized?
Second, good air quality is considered to be an essential design element in Eastern cultures. So make sure the house is free of dust and foul smells. Clean air filters and ducts. Open the windows whenever possible for fresh air. Oxygen invigorates making you feel more energized…
The statistics are startling—26 million Americans are currently affected by chronic kidney disease, and it’s estimated an additional 73 million Americans are at risk. Yet, preventative measures are easily achievable by patients who are educated as to what steps they can take to improve kidney health. Today, WHP correspondent Morgan Koziar met with Dr. George Dy to learn more.

The kidneys are crucial organs that perform several regulatory functions in the body. “[The] kidney works like the filtration system of our body – so it pretty much removes waste products that our body doesn’t need,” says Dr. Dy, adding,“…The kidney also regulates the salt and acid balance in our body…it also makes hormones that [help] our body [make] blood. It also helps make another hormone that helps regulate blood pressure.”
Words slide so easily off the tongue- but the problem is you can never unsay anything you have already said.
If you were to damage a vehicle and you have the money you can get it repaired very quickly. But if you damage another person with your words it may take years to repair that relationship. In fact you may never be able to repair it.
Its easy to sin with our speech. very easy. Everyone stumbles in many ways. We all sin. By nature we’re inherently selfish. Sometimes we sin unintentionally. Most of the time it is intentional. We all have a lot of experience with sin, especially when it involves our speech.
Your speech reveals the condition of your heart. And the only way to change inconsistent speech is to ask God to change your heart. It’s not to try harder at self control. It’s to give your heart to God, who supernaturally transforms your heart. In fact, he gives you a new heart.

No one in the history of mankind has ever had consistent speech…. except for one. His name is Jesus.
Jesus Christ – who never once sinned with his mouth – died on a cross so our gossip, and lies, and vulgarity could be forgiven. He bore the full wrath of God so our cursing and complaining could be forgiven. Maybe this morning God has revealed to you that you need forgiveness. You say, pastor, my speech is awful. I gossip, I complain, I dishonor God with my speech. God will forgive you of that sin. The bible says you if you confess with that same mouth Jesus as Lord and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. So how do you change your speech? Ask God to change your heart.
