For this Thanksgiving week, we have had all kinds of weather from sunshine to rain and light snow to sunshine and this Monday light rain.
Wednesday the 17th was a very sad time for Pastor Don and Becky, and all of Seminole Church. Don and Becky’s one and only child, Brian, at the age of 30, made his way home. His angel came to carry him to his new home and set him free from all cancer pain. Many attended both service Friday night and Saturday from his church, the same church his father pastored for nineteen years at Sulphur Springs, Texas. More than 70 people from Seminole attended the services. It is so sad and he leaves a beautiful wife and two young daughters and a new baby boy to arrive in March.
Skip and Billie arrived last Monday from Fort Meyers. He left for home Friday. We had a busy week. Wednesday we drove to Eureka Springs and Rogers, Arkansas. That night at 11:33 p.m. Ryan landed in the heavy wind and rainstorm, driving here from Grand Prairie, Texas. He stopped at my house to get away from the storm. Ryan was here for Thanksgiving and a visit with all. He left Sunday to go back to his Marine Base.
Thanksgiving Day we all had a nice chat with Clifton as he is in lock down at Fort Louise, Washington waiting news from South Korea. Ryan is expecting to be in lock down also.
Well, Donna Broge did it again. She cooked Thanksgiving dinner for twelve of her family and friends. There is no limit to her dinner no one goes home hungry from her house. Six of twelve were Andrews. We also had some snowflakes and here in Springfield Friday morning we had white grass.
Here we are into December and 2011 is right at our door. My prayers are for a prosperous new year for all those in need of work.
