Justin Linseisen, Director of Pastoral Care
Hello, again my dear friends. The summertime months are beginning to engulf us. The heat, and apparently the rain still, is on. Families are out on vacation. The sun is shining bright and warm, and time continues to march on like the marching and hard at work. Each time I am reminded to “turn in my newsletter article”, I am shocked that a month has almost passed by. Time, as one country music star sings; time marches on. Scripture has something to say about time and life. James 4:14 states, “you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away” (James 4:14 NASB). You see, as time marches on so do our lives.
Our lives, as James writes, is but a vapor that is here for a moment and gone the next. Time is such a fragile thing. Often times we do not realize how precious it actually is until something goes wrong. As Christ followers, we ought to be a people who make the most of the time here on earth. We ought to do what we can to share the Good News of the Gospel. We ought to do all we can to love our communities and the people around us. We must be a people who love God and others; who grow in Christ and in relationships with our brothers and sister and Go to share the message and hope of Christ Jesus. This is our mission. These are our marching orders. This week and this month, I would encourage you to live life to the fullest. Count every moment with friends and loved ones as a precious moment, and not take for granted the time God has given us here in this community!
Please be sure and join us for our Hymn Sing on the 3rd Wednesday of this month.
If I can be of any service to you, please let me know at Justin@eastland.org or (859) 519-4950 or dial ext. 260.
Peace and Blessings!

Friends and Family,
Wow! We have really had a wet start to Summer! We had to move around some June activities due to the rain, so we are looking forward to a dry July! We have many scheduled outings, such as dinners out and Movie Matinees. We must have an accurate count of attendees in order to arrange for transportation. We ask that everyone sign up for the outing no later than the deadline posted on the sign-up sheet, which may vary based on the event.
Please check your July Activities Calendar so you don’t miss out on some of our other summer events, which includes our fun, outdoor, Independence Day celebration on the 3rd of July. We will have mouth-watering burgers and hotdogs prepared on the grill by our amazing Chef, Tonya! Great news for beautification projects for Liberty Ridge!
A big shout out to the ladies from the Garden Club for their help to beautify our Heritage and Liberty gardens. The blooming, radiant plants and flowers are simply stunning! The gate to Liberty Garden will remain open for the enjoyment of all. Please feel free to stop in at your leisure to enjoy!
We are actively exploring options for new dining room chairs and continue to move closer to a final decision. We are taking careful consideration of our choices to ensure we will add to the beauty of our dining room and improve the comfort of our residents and guests!
A couple of quick safety reminders:
Garden Home Residents – please provide us with a copy of your emergency contact information to place in your file, and keep a copy inside your kitchen cabinet, along with an updated list of your current medications. This will help to ensure that first responders have access to your information in case of an emergency.
AL Residents – Remember to keep your medication list updated with the office for your emergency file. You may also want to go to the website: SMART 911 LEXINGTON and register your information that you want to make available to dispatchers and first responders, so they will be better equipped to help you in an emergency.
We strive to ensure a safe and happy environment for everyone at Liberty Ridge. Please slow down and take heed of the speed limit while driving through our Community. There are Speed Limit signs of 15 mph posted throughout the grounds. We appreciate you and your visitors’ careful consideration of safety for our Community.
