Small Things Done with Great Love

0 comments

by Pastor Hal Hester, Vineyard Christian Church

Little things done with great love will change the world. It is a concept borrowed from the life of Mother Teresa; the idea that the little things we do are what make a real impact rather than the big things we do on occasion. It is the idea that the real heroes of our lives are not just those who in moments of bravery act selflessly, but those who act selflessly day-by-day.

Howell Family Cemetery on Olive Street

Jack and Jeanne Lovelace live in the former St. Anthony the Abbott Catholic Church on Olive Street in Brooksville. Behind their home is an old cemetery that was forgotten and neglected for decades. The cemetery was never a part of the church, but a family plot, part of the 160 acre Howell Plantation. In 1907, Robert J. Mickler sold a small piece of property from the Howell Estate, which he inherited from his late wife Mary Howell, to establish a much needed Catholic Church.

Canoeing the Chaz

“Chaz” is short for Chassahowitzka meaning “hanging pumpkins.” Along the banks of the river, hanging pumpkins once grew prolifically. The pumpkins are also called Seminole Pumpkins. They are a vine and are able to grow up trees so the pumpkins themselves appear to hang from tree branches. The pumpkins are quite delicious and easy to grow. Gardeners beware that they will quickly overtake the area in which they are planted.
