Dear Cousin,

 

Darkness is falling at the close of this Christmas day, while snowflakes are slowly floating downward upon ground that is already white. It has been a lovely day, a day to satisfy all those wishing for a white Christmas. It was raining at breakfast time, the ground was soft and soggy, and it looked as if the weatherman had missed the mark. However, the rain turned to a fine, misty snow, gradually forming into big, fluffy flakes that transformed the bare ground into a white...

I normally take regular loaves of bread on campouts but sometimes I bake what is commonly referred to as bannock or skillet bread. Usually, after the bannock is browned on the bottom it is turned over in the skillet and then propped up in front of a fire to brown the other side. You can turn the dough and put it back on the fire/stove and brown both sides the same way if you want to but there is a danger of burning it this way. Try both ways to see which way is best for you. If done right...

LET US PRAY

 

We four were gathered around the table - Tom and Jane, Lee and Esther - ready to partake of the feast, holding hands, embraced in friendship, love and respect. I asked Lee if he would offer a prayer.

I'll bet you can even feel Lee's prayer now when you close your eyes and join hands...

Memories of Walt and Art wrapping our present. “They did it for us, the kids,”  at The Waynedale Drug Store.  circa ‘50’s.

Dear Readers,

 

There is no finer Christmas than a Waynedale Christmas in my mind. Of course, I look back through the eyes of a child. Umber's Hardware always had a grand display in their window of trains that a child could watch, transfixed, night after night. The Waynedale Fireman put on a Christmas show for us at the old Waynedale School. For many of us it was one of the rare times that we saw our hard-working fathers really let down their hair, and act crazy. They would sing, dress up in...

A game of musical chairs was part of a skit performed by the children of Liberty Mills Church of the Nazarene.

It was Sunday, December 15th, just ten days before Christmas 2003. Churches around the neighborhood were celebrating the season by lighting Lenten candles, decorating trees, and most importantly, showing off the church youths via Christmas programs.

The children's program at the Liberty Mills Church of the Nazarene, Liberty Mills Road, featured a play called Mr. Funfiddle's Christmas.

This program started with a flute-clarinet duet performed by Brittany Cooper and Amber Galloway. The plays'...
