As of today October has come and gone and we’re going into November. I suppose we will be seeing a little snow as they did 100 years ago I read in lastweeks 100 years ago items. We saw Colorado had a good snowfall over the weekend.
I have my candy bowls full expecting trick or treaters abut anytime. Albany and Addison just left, their mom and dad brought them by and they already had a bag half full and its still light outside.
We had a great Sunday. We had both daughters and their families here for dinner. Teresa came in time to be at church with me and Sherry and Wes and daughters went to church at the Assemby of God Church. I thought we had an especially good morning service. Bro. Fleetwood taught on Loving God As The Believer’s Highest Purpose from Deuteronomy 6 and Mark 12.
We had one birthday. We sang happy birthday to Ariel Conrad. I believe she is 12 years old. She also sang and did her memory verse.
Last Sunday the 23rd, several of us went to Happy Home for the Fourth Sunday Singing at 2 p.m. and enjoyed the good singing there.The next one will be at Ava General Baptist, November 27 at 2 p.m.
Pastor Benny Dewitt titled his message, “Look Not Back.” His message was from Genesis 19: about Lot’s wife who looked back as they were leaving and became a pillow of salt. Her heart was still in the worldy place she had been living. We cannot hold on to the worldy pleasure of the part and things of God at the same time. He was telling us that when we marry we cannot be unequally yoked together, a believer with an unbeliever. Also he read from Mark 5:25-34 about the woman who touched Jesus’s garment and was made whole of the issue of blood she had suffered with for 12 years. We love our pastors here and believe they prache from God’s word what we are suppose to hear.
Sunday night we had the Haining Family Singers. The parents and four children or actually young adults. They were professionals that could play all kinds of musical instruments. They were originally from Minnesota moving to Branson a year ago. The 16 year old was a wonderful yodler. I don’t believe I ever heard a better Christian group. If anyone gets a chance to hear them don’t miss hearing them.
Regretted to hear abut Max Roberts passing away. They use to attend Faith Rock severay years ago and we all remember them with love. They helped a lot here I nthe churc has they do in the church they attend now. No one could sing “That Same Spirit” like Sis. Linda. Our heart goes out to the family.
Also last week Harlan Davis passed away and he is going to be very much missed especially at all the places where music was played. His sister, Kay, is married to my husband, Jerry’s first cousin, Danny Carmickle in Sparta.
I wanted to mention what good music shows we’re having at Ava Theatre. November will be the last until next year probably in the spring. The Potter’s Wheel were here last week and the Oldfield Opry’s band will be here this Thursday night.
We were able to give 11 baby quilts to Newborns In Need last week. We still meet on Tuesdays and make quilts for those in need and enjoy doing it. We had material given to us this week. My daughter Teresa Gloyd from Branson brought four bags from her sister-in-law, Mary. We had prayed for Mary while she was going through cancer treatments and then blood clots and she lives alone and she is now cancer-free. Thank you Lord.
Prayers are also in need for Bro. Darrell Hesterlee’s sister who is going through a battle with cancer and also many others who are suffering.
I enjoyed River Stillwood’s items last week, about her father. I also enjoyed the world series and the Cardinals winning over Texas. It was a great game.
