I talked with Bonnie and she said that the only news she had for me was that she went to church Sunday but she would have some next week.
Violet Blakey stopped by last Monday for a while and Cathy Cornett came by after she dropped her two kids off at school. I was in the middle of making some carrot cakes.
Last Tuesday I received .7-1/2 of an inch by noon and that seems like everyone else did too.
Kay picked up my news and the other visitors that day were Tara Coonce, Jett and Justin came later, then Jewell came by and picked up her eggs and a gift for Bessie.
George and Violet Blakey came by Wednesday and picked up their Christmas gift, they brought me my gift the other day. Tara and Jett were with her that day too.
Tara and Jett came over Thursday morning and Justin came that evening, after they left I went to the store and got some more baking goods, I stopped by John and Jo Stephens on the way back.
Friday I went into town to get my medicine and I took Donna Nichols her eggs and then I gave her Mae Cox Christmas Gift, I went to Ava Drug and then over by Martin and Mary Ann Hathcock and gave them their card and gift.
Saturday afternoon I went to Seymour to Alexia’s first birthday party, she will be 1 year old the 20th and she is walking around now, after the party I headed to Springfield and went to where Monica is working and took her some cakes then I went over to Vernal and Ellen’s and dropped their cake and Bill and Deloris Christmas cake, then I headed home and it was dark when I got here.
Sunday I went to church and Dennis didn’t read any scripture out of the Bible he just preached on wrapping gifts and do you know what the first gift that was ever wrapped, it was Baby Jesus, he was wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manager.
I never thought about that before but it is true so we should always remember first what Christmas is all about.
I went up to see Bessie after church and I stayed until the Sandy Church came and sang for her then we ate some soup and then I left and went to the Nursing Home and took four ladies a Christmas card and a gift. They were Peggy Jenkins, Roxie Heimeyer, Pauline Schauffler, and Irene Richards. They were all pleased and I saw Michelle Johnson but didn’t get to talk much because she was busy.
Let’s keep our sick folks in our prayers. We have a church member in the hospital right now and maybe just maybe he will get to come home this Tuesday, just pray.
My prayers and sympathy goes out to the John Kraft and the Stout families and all the others who have lost a loved one. Keep our leaders and the men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training in your prayers.
