On a Mission Fall 2018

Carolyn Publisher, On A Mission by DOTTIE MOUNTS Season of Celebrations! Here in our fall and winter edition of On a Mission Magazine ; we find ourselves in a season of celebrations. We celebrate the fall harvest, Thanksgiving, and the holiday which is celebrated around the world, Christmas! We may not have the correct date as we celebrate the birth of the Lamb of God. I am sure that to the God of the universe time really has no significance since He has all the time in the world! What does matter is that we celebrate. We celebrate CHRISTMAS and no other religion, no other God one may serve can take Christmas from the hearts of souls of the Christian American or Christians around the world! As we cel- ebrate Christmas, we anticipate his promised second coming. Oh how our hearts yearn within us! Try as they might, they will nev- er take away the celebration of Mary’s little baby, the son of God, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! Drink in the words to the wonderful account in Luke 2: 1-20 and beautiful Christmas carols. Like Mary, ponder these truths in your heart! On behalf of On A Mission Magazine and all of those who make this publication possible, Happy Harvest, Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas! for a great cup of coffee! Urbana offers variety with its eateries and downtown shoppes. I never tire of it! Even though Downtown Springfield has lost some of its original uniqueness, it’s making a comeback with Mother Stew- art’s Brewing Co., Le Torte Dolci, Winans and many other quaint shoppes that are springing up on Fountain Avenue. Since many people love peanuts and candy so much, Springfield is home to The Peanut Shoppe , just a little ways out on East Main Street. The Kuss Auditorium is a won- derful venue and the majestic old city hall building, which is now the Clark County Historical Society , is quite the place to visit no matter what the season. Debuting in this edition, I hope everyone checks out the Wallace & Turner ad. Their designer did an excellent job of capturing the Springfield skyline! The states of Kentucky and Ohio have similar sentiments with so many people in the same way I love the cities of Urbana and Springfield, both have much to offer in travel and tourism. The Ashford Acres Inn caught my attention on the Internet. I am so pleased that we are featuring the Inn in this issue. Cynthiana, Kentucky is not too far away from Urbana and Springfield for a wonderful weekend getaway. Read about its Southern charm and beauty on pages 12 and 13. Hope you and yours have a great autumn, Happy Thanks- giving, Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! FALL 2018 | 5 ON A MISSION womenon missi n.net
