    We harvested some fantastic looking potatoes and garlic over the weekend; I am so excited about the garden this year because it is performing so well!

We have enjoyed some fresh green onion and bulbs but for the bulk of the crop we to want harvest and cure them properly so they will store well.

    Cedar Hill Baptist Church

    We were greatly blessed today as Ben Allen shared God’s Word with us. Using scriptures from Mark and John, he challenged us to answer the question “What do our lives say Christianity is?” We too often fall into the trap of sharing our religion instead of Christ.

  • Backyard clotheslines serve as reminder of 20th century life

    In the 1900s it was a common sight in most backyards. During the summer it gleefully skipped through the air, wrapping its ends around sturdy trees or poles secured in the ground.

    A long, forked wooden pole propped in the middle of the line would lift the laundered clothes to just the right height for youngsters to duck under as they galloped about in their pretend world.
