East Carroll man wins Easy 5
Since: Mar 13

Growing up in a small town call Lake Providence I developed some simple appreciations which have never left me. I still say "Sir" and "Ma'am" to most folks older than me. I hold a door for people, especially ladies and children. I don't sit down until my wife at the table have been seated. Then there was one the other day that came back to me. I was at the hospital and I was the only employee at the time as it was fairly early. A co-worker was setting up the back room and I went back to help. "Ernest," she told me sternly, "I've told you before, you don't have to help me do this." My reply was simple. "I learn offering a helping hand is pleasing to God."
I have drawn a lot of who and what I am from my parents. The funny thing is, the one thing they did for me I do not now get to enjoy. I was raised on a front porch. The old home at High Way 65 South, Lake Providence Louisiana, has a wonderful front porch just perfect for sitting in the evening or even the early morning, if you are so inclined. After supper we would take a glass of cold water and go out on the front porch and sit and watch the world go by. Some of the world would stop by from time to time.
In small towns back in the 70's & 80's, people walked a lot. They would just go take a walk and relax in doing so. Invariably their route would sometime lead them right past our front door. I have seen ten people or so gathered on our front porch just talking and relaxing. All the problems of the world would get solved and the bonds of true community would be cemented as a result of such times.
