  • Autumn is a time to reflect peace of God, guard hearts and minds in Christ Jesus

    The sun is lower in the sky. There is briskness in the air. The deep green of summer is giving way to hints of yellow, orange, red and brown.

    Fallen leaves are peppering the sidewalks and lawns of our community. Birds are on the wing, heading south. Flower beds are being turned over for the coming winter. Lawn mowers will soon be back in storage. Sweat shirts are around the waist and over the shoulders at dawn and dusk. Once again God is gracing us with the beautiful season of autumn.

    Furthermore, I hear she’s working with the 4-H program as well. The talk is that she is honored to be in Carroll County, and eager to do all she can to assist its residents.
