    In December, we donated $150 to the County Homemaker Scholarship Fund and $50 to the Legacy Fund for Extension Agents to either continue education or to use for special projects. We enjoyed playing “Dirty Santa” and exchanging Christmas gifts.

  • You may have heard the old joke of the elderly man who was told that at his age he should be thinking about the “hereafter.” He replied, “I do all the time.  When I go into a room, I stop and ask myself, what am I “here after”?

    Paul advises us, whatever our age, to “Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things …“(Colossians 3:2-3). Even though we have to live in this world, we must see the next. Jesus said, “Seek first the kingdom of God” (Matthew 6:33).
