Old Cowbelle; Message in the blue
--Ina Murray The morning is warming, not hot, just right for sitting on the deck and counting blessings. Relaxing in one of four deck chairs, a gift from a few years ago, complete with glass top table, I sit back and enjoy the privilege of being idle. Guilt washes over me,...

Old Cowbelle: School time again
--Ina Murray, columnist So very quickly that time is here again, coming up autumn. Even though it has been about 50 years since I sent anyone off to kindergarten, I still feel it. I get that lonesome feeling that I did when our kids went back to school.

Cow Belle: Community Prayer Chain?
--Ina Murray A recent request for prayer asked that a friend be added to anyone who had access to a prayer chain. In the past, we have had “prayer chains” in our church, but when our women’s group and most of our “circles” disbanded, our regular prayer chain got...

Old Cowbelle: Heritage

Old Cowbelle: I am rich!
--Ina Murray, columnist Yes, I am rich. Not in the way most people consider rich, with a huge bank account and posh living conditions. I am rich in other ways. At the moment, I am sitting at my dining room table that is covered with a lavender lunch cloth.

Old Cowbelle: The Future of Churches
--Ina Murray, columnist Our thoughts and prayers are following our Mission Trip young people and adults as they leave for Waterloo, Ia., on the 13th. It is wonderful to think about the hundreds of young people willing to go and do!

Old Cow Belle: Old Lady Entertainment?
It sounds kind of weird for an 87-year-old woman to be connected to Facebook, but let me explain. I have grands and great-grandchildren that I seldom see. Some live far away and some close, but everyone is so busy and their paths go in all directions, so it’s hard to see them...

Old Cowbelle: Missed opportunities
--Ina Murray Isn’t it funny how sometimes we miss opportunities that are right under our noses, thinking we have to drive a lot of miles and pay a lot of money to find special places. Like the Ellsworth Archery Range, right in our own home town, on the west side of Ellsworth....

Cow Belle: 125th Anniversary
Our Savior’s Lutheran Church has been my “Church Home” for the past 65 years, ever since Husband and I and (then) one-year-old Sandy became members. It has been and still is one of the most important facets of our lives. This year, on June 22, Our Savior’s will celebrate...

Old Cowbelle: El Paso, Wisconsin
Five roads all lead downhill and converge to a wide spot in the road that is known as El Paso. It might be just a teeny dot on the map (if it is on the map at all), but this little area is full of surprises! The famous Rush River runs right through it, and its banks are often lined...

Old Cowbelle: Storms, Diets and Hugs

Old Cowbelle: Echos
--Ina Murray A few weeks ago I featured a poem I had written about out little dead-end road. Over 50 years ago my Mom, Lillian, also wrote about this little road. It was written when our old farmhouse was the only house on the road.
