Carol Moore and Marie Dickey came and picked me up for our O.E.S. meeting where we were honoring Marie Dickey with a surprise birthday card party before our meeting. It was her 90th birthday and Carol and I was suppose to keep her out until everyone got there and if you know Marie, she likes to be there way on time. I think she will forgive us.

I was sorry to hear of the death of Bea Luallen. I was going to go to the flower reading and I got dizzy and couldn’t go. Then on Friday morning I had bread rising and couldn’t make it that morning. I wanted to go and visit with Jerry Luallen because we worked together at Wal-Mart.
My prayers and sympathy go out to that family. My prayers also go out to my church families that have problems. My Lord will take care of them all.
Keep the prayers going for all the sick folks.
