Shem Creek, South Carolina

The first time I knew of the existence of Shem Creek was when I saw a book written by Dorothea Benton Frank. The name intrigued me.

On Friday, I picked my brother and his wife up from the Charleston airport. Tim had come up with a few places we could eat. When he said one was in Shem Creek, I knew that's where we needed to go.

I called ahead for a reservation, and I went expecting a magical place. I wasn't disappointed. We were seated outside next to the rail with a great view of the creek.

Dinner was delicious, the company was great, and for entertainment we got to see kayaks, boats and dolphins.

If you are in the Charleston, South Carolina area, treat yourself to a fun time at Shem Creek.

Flag of the Week

Today I'd like to share a few quotes with you by Peter Marshall. I'm not sure how he'd do in the world today with all of our "political correctness." But many of the books and sermons he wrote were amazing.

"May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right."

"Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything."

“A different world cannot be built by indifferent people.”

This next one made me laugh at first, and I briefly thought about the TV character Sheldon Cooper. But deep down, there's power in these words.

“Lord, where we are wrong, make us willing to change; where we are right, make us easy to live with.” I hope I'm always willing to change and grow for God's glory, and I hope I'm easy to live with whether I'm right or wrong.

Have a blessed week!
