This Monday is a beautiful day and tomorrow’s forecast is for much the same, a very good ending to a nice winter month.
I just finished a pleasant visit with my sister, Jean, who helps with most of my news items.
She says Jimmy is still much in need of prayer. He finally managed to be in Sunday school and church for the past two Sundays. He can get around some better in house shoes. Gout is very painful and can immobilize a person. Also there are problems from the prostate surgery.
James and Karen DeGase and grandson, Eli, visited Jim and Jean on Saturday. Eli is two and is their daughter, Sherry’s son, the only boy in their family with three girls for sisters. James and Karen enjoy having him on weekends while Sherry works and the other grandparents keep the girls. James is doing better health wise and enjoys fishing with son, Greg, who does all the work. Way to go!
Those sharing lunch with Jim and Jean were Danny and Jamie Dry and Rusty and Sarah Frye on Sunday.
Karen brought five quilts blocks representing members of the Jim and Velma DeGase family for the DeGase reunion quilt which will be raffled off to family members on Labor Day (reunion day) Saturday. Others wishing blocks included still have time. We are nearing enough blocks for a quilt.
Jean and Jamie spent Sunday evening with Nina and Annie Heath for an enjoyable time of visiting, praying, and singing. Nina has been missing church because of health problems and we all miss her singing and piano playing. Charlie Satterfield also visited there awhile.
I missed church again and heard that Robert Moore brought a good message bringing out that we should use wisdom with prudence, or the ability to use wisdom wisely. He used Proverbs to prove truths and some from Psalms and other scriptures. Our nation has gotten away from God and from the principles our country was founded upon. We only have to read the Bible to see what has happened when people begin to worship other gods. Our country should take heed that the handwriting is on the wall. Until later, pray much.
