While I was in western PA this summer, I just had to visit a place where Joy and Denny took us on every trip. McConnells Mill and the covered bridge there is without a doubt one of my favorite places to visit. The bridge was built in 1874, and is a Howe truss bridge. Denny [...]
The mouth of the Huron River on Lake Erie was one of the first ports of Ohio to be settled. As early as 1749, a French trading post operated from this port, but it did not survive the Revolutionary War. We were there to enjoy it for a day with family and friends. I love [...]
Okay, so this is an Amish buggy and notice how I waited for it to pass by before I took the photo! Honestly, I would not want someone to stand outside my home and snap photos of me. So, I get it. Plus, their beliefs really prevent them from posing for photos. End of that [...]

I'll be back there soon. It is the one place that reminds me of them the most. Notice the buggy wheel marks [...]
Click on images to enlarge. Sunset is one of my favorite times of the day, especially in western Pennsylvania. The farms light up with a strong candle's glow! I don't think this is an Amish farm, but it may be. It has a red silo but the house is white and I see [...]
Years ago, one of my favorite recording artists Margaret Becker wrote the song "Horses" that contains these words: "I want no regrets when the horses come for me." Such odd words but as a Christian, you understand what she is writing about. One day Jesus will come back riding a white horse as the King [...]
