A Most Lovely Little Country Church

While in Ohio this past week to welcome the birth of my first grand baby, I took a day off to head up to Noble County where a large portion of my maternal line are buried.  Archers Ridge Cemetery is adjacent to the Archers Ridge Church, which I discovered is still in use after peeking through the window and seeing the coming day’s date and sermon on the board near the pulpit.  Much like it’s simple exterior, the inside appeared to be just as unfussy and simple with white pews and dark hardwood floors.  I had to smile thinking about the Archer family of mine buried nearby, who were just modest farmers – they’d be quite a home worshiping here. The day was beautiful with a bright blue cloudless sky and with the slightest breeze blowing, fluttering the American flags on the veteran’s graves in the cemetery.  (Don’t you love the orb?)
