What’s Happening with Craig Kirk Tyndall
Inspiration for Today:
In order to live a godly life, we must stand on the firm foundation of God’s commandments. They are our roadmap to heaven and eternal life with Jesus! God didn’t just insist on some strict rules to make us miserable and outline all the things we “can’t do.” No, quite the opposite. He gave us the Ten Commandments so that we would have a guide to help us avoid the pitfalls of sin, and enjoy a more abundant life here on earth. He did that because He loves us and wants to see us happy. By following God’s principles we are able to experience the peace we long for. There are times when living up to biblical principles can really put our true characters to the test! It’s not always the popular thing to do, and friends may ridicule or even turn their backs on us because we stand up for what we know to be right. But our salvation depends on our commitment to our Lord and Savior and not to what our friends, family, or even strangers may think of us. We are a “walking witness” to all those around us. People are watching our every move – even when we don’t think they are. They see if we make compromises in our beliefs and they also see when we are living each day with Christian principles.

TIP OF THE DAY:
BE A FRIEND TO BIRDS AND THEY’LL BE A FRIEND TO YOU
Allowing our feathered friends to have nests near your house can be a great experience. For one thing, it’s fascinating to see young birds mature and take flight, but they also help keep the insect population at bay, since the birds will eat hundreds of insects like mosquitoes every day. But when the last bird has finally left their home, be sure to remove the nest. Leaving the old nest in its spot will only attract parasites, so remove it and bury it in the soil to let it naturally decompose.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Naomi Judd, the Kentucky-born singer of the Grammy-winning duo The Judds and mother of Wynonna and Ashley Judd, has died. She was 76.
The daughters announced her death on Saturday in a statement provided to The Associated Press.
“Today we sisters experienced a tragedy. We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness,” the statement said. “We are shattered. We are navigating profound grief and know that as we loved her, she was loved by her public. We are in unknown territory.”
Naomi Judd died near Nashville, Tennessee, said a statement on behalf of her husband and fellow singer, Larry Strickland. It said no further details about her death would be released and asked for privacy as the family grieves.
The Judds were to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame on Sunday and they had just announced an arena tour to begin in the fall, their first tour together in over a decade. They also made a return to awards shows when they performed at the CMT Music Awards earlier this month.
“Honored to have witnessed “Love Can Build a Bridge” just a few short weeks ago,” singer Maren Morris posted on Twitter on Saturday.
“This is heartbreaking news! Naomi Judd was one of the sweetest people I’ve ever known,” singer Travis Tritt posted on Twitter, noting that he had worked with Judd several times on screen and during performances.
The mother-daughter performers scored 14 No. 1 songs in a career that spanned nearly three decades. After rising to the top of country music, they called it quits in 1991 after doctors diagnosed Naomi Judd with hepatitis C. Wynonna continued her solo career.
The Judds’ hits included “Love Can Build a Bridge” in 1990, “Mama He’s Crazy” in 1984, “Why Not Me” in 1984, “Turn It Loose” in 1988, “Girls Night Out” in 1985, “Rockin’ With the Rhythm of the Rain” in 1986 and “Grandpa” in 1986.
