     Every couple of years I like to revisit my father’s favorite Christmas poem inspired by Clement Moore’s famous work ‘A Visit from St. Nicholas.’  The writer of the poem is unknown but he or she certainly was a gardener; and you may even get some last minute gift ideas from its verse.

  • George Orwell once said: “The planting of a tree, especially one of the long-living hardwood trees, is a gift which you can make to posterity at almost no cost and with almost no trouble, and if the tree takes root it will far outlive the visible effect of any of your other actions, good or evil.” 

    Now is the perfect time to consider adding value to your woodlot, making your land more attractive to wildlife or adding beauty to your home landscaping by planting some trees in the spring.

    Someone once said the Christmas season waves a magic wand over the world, and when the grand finale arrives, the child in everyone comes to life.

    Perhaps one of the most poignant Christmas memories of the early 1900s revolved around the kitchen, where  delectable scents, wafting from the oven of a wood cook-stove, offered promises of good things yet to come.

    Christmas week! The house is decorated, the shopping done, the tree in place and the gifts wrapped and under the tree. The menu is set for the Christmas afternoon brunch. This is the shortest day of the year. 

    I guess you all know I write on Monday so Molly can get it into the paper and ready to be distributed on Wednesday, so this is the shortest day of the year.

    Years ago I read about a college student in the middle of final exams, distracted and distraught because her mother was ill and she wanted to be home with her.

    The mom assured her daughter that she was fine, that she would be OK. 

    After her last exam, the college student raced home, and as she walked in to see her mom, her mom opened her eyes, smiled -- and died.

  • Cedar Hill Baptist Church

    Great message Sunday morning on the “Gifts of Christmas” taken from Isaiah 7:14 and 9:6-7. Jesus brought the gifts of wisdom, power, and peace to us if we call upon Him to be our shepherd.

    We delivered our Christmas stockings Sunday evening.  

    There will not be ARC tonight. It will resume Jan. 6.

    Remember to bring new tennis shoes, any size, by Jan. 10.
