  •  With this heat we have been having, I am sure it’s just as hard for you as it is for me to decide what to prepare for every meal. 

    I sometimes just stand in front of the open refrigerator door and try to figure out what sounds good.  Then I think about all the fresh foods now coming from our gardens and try to determine the best way to prepare them.

    You know, we don’t always have to cook the food. Many times it is even better eaten raw.

    If you were to meet the Cary family, you wouldn’t know that four of their seven children are foster kids.

    Chris and Konnie Cary, of Carrollton, are parents to Joel, 14, Sarah, 11, Jacob, 11, Levi, 8, Gage, 6, Jordyn, 5, and Max, 2.

    They all work and play together like siblings, even though Jacob and the three youngest are only living with them temporarily.

  •  Heat —it surrounds us, aggravates us, fuels our conversation, dominates our news, impacts our entire earth—gives us pause to think.

    Besides constantly figuring out the best ways to stay cool, we are asking ourselves where all this excessive heat comes from, and if it will become the order of the day. Nobody seems to be talking about global warming publicly, but plenty of us have been projecting it forward in our thinking.
