It’s a cold Tuesday morning here in Ava today. The sun has come out so that will help our spirit today.
Today is our quilting day. We didn’t meet last Tuesday as we were all getting ready for Thanksgiving and our families getting together to celebrate a special day of thanksgiving.
We had all our immediate family here for dinner. Our children and grandchildren were able to catch up on what was taking place in their lives. Our daughters both brought food to put with mine and we still have leftovers even after they took home what they wanted. It’s wonderful to have so much to be thankful for.
We had a very good service Sunday. Our pastor Bro. Dewitt preached a good message from Matthew 5:44-48 and Numbers 21:5-9 verse 44. It’s our nature to want to be liked and cared about, but that doesn’t always happen. Jesus as good as He was was hated by many.
Bro. Bob Fleetwood did a good job teaching on stewardship.
Sunday afternoon those that could came and met at the General Baptist Church for the Fourth Sunday Singing. We enjoyed their hospitality and all the good specials from all the churches that were represented because of the Christmas holidays, the singing will be dismissed in December and continue in January, weather permitting.
We had a birthday last week. We wish Kiona a very Happy 15th Birthday.
Sis. Loretta Dewitt preached Sunday night from Joshua 10 and Isaiah 51 and Romans 16:20. It was a wonderful message. We had special singing both in the morning and evening service. The Dewitts are in revival at Oldfield this week. Bro. Hesterlee drove the church bus last night up there. I hope they have a good crowd coming. They are both very good minsiters and singers.
We will be starting services at 5 p.m. on Sunday nights through the winter months, while the weather is cold. We will be having a Christmas play the 18th and our Christmas dinner December 11. Everyone is invited that wants to come.
We are making lap robes today at church for those needing them at our nursing home.
God bless you and stay warm.
