Greetings from our community and James and me wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. The Lord’s will we will celebrate 30 years together on December 31, maybe we will be in a good church service somewhere. Maybe at a good spiritual church service at Cardwell Chapel Missionary Baptist Church. Services are at 11 a.m. every Sunday.
We pray God sends us people to fill the church and see people saved. James said he would love to have one more good time of good spiritual services before he is called out. We pray God sends us a piano player or anyone who plays instruments and singers.
Thursday Betty Halcomb and Janie Morrison went to the beauty shop and done some Christmas shopping in Ava. Amanda Evans, Betty’s granddaughter joined her and Janie for lunch. James and me went fishing. We didn’t have much luck, but I do have some fresh fish to eat. I had a good time.
Sorry, Jena Phillips is four years old not twenty-one as stated last week, although she does not act four years old. Kids try to get older and mature before their time. At my age, you wish you were young.
While at Christy Lakey’s for Thanksgiving her grandkids, Hunter and Shelby Crossland, gave James and me their pictures and a Christmas card from each. It seems too early for Christmas, but it is here. Remember Jesus is the reason for the season.
Get well wishes to Fae Pruett and Betty Maggard. Remember Dawn and Boone Hodges. She is very ill.
Gracie Williams enjoyed her family over the Thanksgiving holiday. She had family come in from Missouri and Oklahoma. Her brother, Billy and Daisy Nelson, visited Thursday.
Jerry Nelson had Thanksgiving at his daughter’s, Loetta Nelson and family.
Sunday, December 5, Iona Maggard enjoyed Ervin and Sandra Maggard and Valerie and Casey Austin. The Austin’s went to Mt. Olive in the evening to practice on the Christmas program, which is Saturday night, December 11 at 6:30 p.m. Everyone welcome.
I have a deer story to tell on my great nephew, Wyatt Marler, who was with his family coming up Boulder’s Fork. His Dad, Clint, told them see Linda coming out of the tree. That evening Clint was looking at the paper and asked Wyatt if he knew who this was? Yes, it’s Linda, did she fall out of the tree? It was my picture of correspondent of the week not obituaries. Shellie, his mom, said he was serious. She doesn’t read obituaries to the kids, but hers are very smart. Anyway, he knew that looked like an obituary. I just look and feel dead.
Have a safe shopping month and thank God for what we do have.
