I decided that my last blog was pretty down on Hillsdale. Though I still think those things are all very true, I thought it might be nice to come up with things that are GOOD about Hillsdale. Yesterday David and I drove out to a meat place that sells wonderful quality of meat for way less then the stuff you buy in the grocery store. We got about 75 + servings of meat (pork, chicken, beef, steaks, roast) for under $200!!!! WOW!! Though the initial bill feels like a lot when you look at how long this meat will last it really is a savings. There’s no traffic in Hillsdale. This is nice, especially when going to work. You don’t have to time your drive to miss traffic. The restaurant owners know you and you have a chance to get to know them too. This has opened up a few relational opportunities for us, and a way to be a light and witness to the community. Where we live is very quiet–save for the scooter man! 🙂 He rides his scooter at all hours of the day/night. We’re never sure where he’s going…he’s probably not sure either! 🙂 Our church is on the smaller end, and this is nice. Everyone knows you, there is a great sense of family involved.
I hope this has helped to give you a more well-rounded look at Hillsdale. It’s not all bad! 🙂
Happy Sunday to you! May you be blessed with the message you hear at church today!
