  • I do not know about you, but I have been busy putting up pickle relish.

    I have cucumbers coming out my ears, and that is remarkable since in the past I have told you how good we are at growing zucchini. 

    I picked a cucumber the other day that must weigh three pounds.  Of course, it wasn’t used for the relish.

  • Solomon was dreaming about his new ministry as king of God’s people Israel. King David, his father, had been a most worthy leader, and Solomon wanted so much to follow in his father’s footsteps and govern well.

  • Plans are under way for our second walkathon, 9 a.m. to noon, Sept. 24 at county park to support the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Carrollton. Our second full school year is nearly upon us, and we look forward to the new mentoring friendships on the way.

    During our most recent planning meeting, a handful of board members started talking about why we serve as mentors and leaders in this effort to bring more quality adults into the lives of children. We came up with 10 solid reasons. Maybe they will influence you to come alongside us in this effort.
