When we are in a new area I inquire on the net for suggestions for a local church. The only one recommended so far here was the Huggin oaks Church, near Hampton, SC. About 15 miles on Hwy 68.
Weekends we usually have breakfast out. At home there is a great local Café called ‘Whites’. They have one of the best breakfasts anywhere at a very reasonable price. The cost for the two of us is always less than $10 including a $2 tip.
For Saturday morning, I announced to Sherry, I saw a small café in Yemassee, I want to go there for Breakfast. Then we can drive towards Hampton and stop at some yard sales.
(Not saying Yemassee is small, but this is the Country Club!)
We drove past 3 good breakfast places for a quick breakfast. Denny’s, McDonalds (good coffee) and Subway. 6 miles to my pick, CLOSED!
Okaaaaaay, no problem (Sherry loves coffee in the morning, she still doesn’t have it), we will drive up Hwy 68 and stop at another café. HA HA ON ME! We drove on past the Huggin Oaks Church, for 21 miles before we saw a restaurant or café. What did we find? A McDonalds and a Hardees, not a local restaurants, even in Hampton. So we ate at Hardee’s.
No yard sales that looked close to interesting, a lot of children's toys and clothes.
Now the name Huggin Oaks, had me very curious, where did the country folk come up with that name? (I had forgotten the camera) I drove into the parking lot of a very nice church, well manicured lawn, out in the country. We needed to find the service times. There on the sign was the times and a small painting of two large oaks leaning toward to each other with the branches entwined, then it hit me, There are two oaks around like that or were, on this location, when the church was organized.
Anyway We did attend, and met some wonderful country folk. We do this across the country, it is getting harder for me, but Sherry carries the bulk of the conversations and I smile. happy Easter to you all.
The pastor was a retired Navy Chaplain, Bishop Strickland.
Thanks for coming by the log, now you know about a church called Huggin Oaks, file that away.
Oh, and we ate dinner at the Hampton Restaurant, Great food, but this was parked beside us in the parking lot:
a beautiful 1970 Chevy Super Sport.
The Children's Bible in a Nutshell
In the beginning, which occurred near the start, there was nothing but God, darkness, and some gas.
The Bible says, ' The Lord thy God is one', but I think He must be a lot older than that.
Anyway, God said, 'Give me a light!' and someone did.
Then God made the world.
He split the Adam and made Eve. Adam and Eve were naked, but they weren't embarrassed because mirrors hadn't been invented yet.
Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating one bad apple, so they were driven from the Garden of Eden..... Plymouths must have been the first car, because God drove them out in his Fury.
