I talked with Bonnie Phipps Sunday and she said she didn’t make it to church because she didn’t have a good nights rest. I hope she is doing better now.
James Blakey came by last Monday after taking Lakota into ball practice before school and I got him to crack me some walnuts before he went to work.
Kay stopped by and picked up my news so I could keep busy picking my walnut goodies out. I sure appreciate Kay when she stops and gets my news for me.
Mark brought me a few eggs last Tuesday and then Kelsey brought me two-dozen more on Thursday.
Dennis Posey stopped by Thursday afternoon and picked up his carrot cake.
The O.E.S. performed their service at the Mary Alice Emerson funeral Friday at ten.
After the funeral I picked up my medicine and dropped off gifts to KKOZ, Martin and Mary Ann Hathcock, Anita Smith and Norman Duckworth.
Later on after I got home I went up to John and Jo Stephens with a little gift.
George and Violet stopped by Saturday on their way to see Bea Christy and I gave them their carrot cake and they brought me some frozen fish, pecan and some walnut goodies, which I will replace later.
Sunday we had our Christmas program in the morning service and I thought it was a success and others did too. There were 33 present.
I went over to Anita Smith’s after I got home from church and I found out Chase Blakey and family were down so I gathered all their presents and went over and when I got there they had a group of carolers there singing from the Sandy Church. I got to help them sing the last song.
Those at Anita’s home were Chase, Michika, Blythe, Chesnea, Ellis, Marsha, Johnathan, Annie, Shannon and daughter, Jaylin and Judy Wilson. She sung with the group. I went back to church that night and we had a candle light service and it was nice. I pray that every one that is sick will be well by Christmas.
Lets keep our sick folks in our prayers. There are some in the hospital that have had a wreck and is in critical condition, so keep every one in your prayer even if you don’t know their name.
My prayers and sympathy go out to he ones who have lost a loved one.
Lets keep our leaders and men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training in our prayers.
Monday morning I received a call from Marsha Blakey and she said I had a new great-grandbaby named Alexia Mae Blakey. Her parents are Johnathan Blakey and Annie Perryman. I can’t wait to see that big girl. Congratulations, Annie and Johnathan.
