Small Town America

Proverbs 30  tells us, “There are four things on earth that are small,  but they are very wise.  Ants are not very strong, but they store up food in the summer.  Rock badgers are not very powerful, but they can live among the rock.  Locusts have no king, but they all go forward in formation. …

As I look outside at the trees with their leaves turning red,orange, and yellow; I just want to cry.  I am so NOT ready for winter.  I want the flowers to keep blooming and the sun to keep warming my face.  I want to go swimming and play with the children in the sand.  I…

You hear many Christians complaining about paying their tithe to the church.  They also hesitate to give offerings and alms, for fear of not having enough to pay their bills.  My husband and I have been tithing for over 25 years and have found the rewards to be great.  We don’t tithe with the idea of…

Depending on where you live the weather can changed drastically during the changing of the seasons.  If you live in Hawaii or Florida the changes will not be so dramatic.  Since I live in northern Ohio, I get to enjoy the beauty of each season.  I must confess that summer is the best for me. …

I really know very little about politics, but I know I’m sick of all the negative TV adds and the unsolicited phone calls regarding everyone from senators to the current presidential candidates.  Why can’t they just tell the truth.  For every new accusation against one person, the opposition has to make a corrective political add. …

Why does it seem the harder we try to please God, the more tribulations that follow us?  The Bible tells us that tribulations will come. Jesus tells us in John 16:33,”These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer;…

Another thing we really enjoy at the county fair is the flower competition.  They have so many varieties; mums, dahlias, sunflowers, roses,.zinnias and some I’ve never seen before. I love most flowers, but some are just plain ugly.  I think snap dragons and the red velvet cones are at the top  of that list. The Bible…

Another big attraction at the fair  is the game strip.  There are all kinds of games from Basketball toss to knock over the milk bottles.  They also usually have one where you race cars and one where you throw darts at balloons.  These games are fun and Rich used to win tons of stuffed animals…

Every August the Sandusky County Fair comes to our town.  Nothing changes much from year to year accept the grandstand shows and the prices.  One of the major attractions for us, senior citizens, is the food.  I love the waffles and giant onion rings, Rich likes cotton candy and steak . We have attended this fair…
