Today's Features

  • Last week my husband and I took a short trip to Winter Garden, a town not too far from Orlando.
    We went to the historic downtown district with its trendy businesses housed in restored storefronts from as far back as the early 1900s.
    A restaurant we went in was originally Cappleman Brothers Grocery Store, built in 1912.
    As my husband read the menu, I read about the history of the building -- the original brick, the gothic stained glass panels in the front window that came from an old Presbyterian church.

  • We have just witnessed a natural marvel, the total eclipse of the sun. It was amazing to watch the new coverage and the darkness that Madras, Carbondale and Hopkinsville witnessed.
    It was equally impressive to see the event unfold in South Carolina during a lightening storm. How can this event be described except with words like astonishing, amazing or unbelievable.

  • The beacon of spring in these parts is undoubtedly the native dogwood. But, because of disease problems, especially dogwood anthracnose, people are seeking alternatives to Cornus Florida.  There are other notable dogwoods like Cornus kousa and Cornus mas, but look beyond the dogwood for small, spring-flowering landscape trees that prove to have interest well into summer.
    Consider the Carolina silverbell (halesia) and the fringe tree (chionanthus).

    Cain’s insolent and arrogant response to God’s question is a sign of his inward, unacknowledged guilt. This is always the way of guilt—to disclaim responsibility. Cain replies, My brother? What have I to do with my brother?  
    Am I my brother’s keeper? Is it my responsibility to know where my brother is? The hypocrisy of that is most evident.
