The rain we prayed for, came this morning early. We need to pray for more since it was just a short and sweet rain, that just came and went.
I hope everyone had a safe Memorial weekend. I finally got my family and Jerry’s family decorated. I got to visit with a few I hadn’t seen in awhile. At the Jenkin’s Cemetery, I visited with a cousin, Retha Haas’ husband and granddaughter, who had come to decorate Retha’s grave and other family members. We had a nice visit. I was pleased with the up keep of the cemetery there and also Mt. Tabor, where my dad and others are buried. Ava’s was beautiful as always.
We had a good service Sunday, with Brother Benny bringing a timely message and we all stood and sang, “America.” His message was from St. John 14:15-30. Sister Loretta brought Sunday night’s message, “Little is much, if God is in it.” Teaching on obedience to God’s will.
We had a wedding here at Faith Rock, last Saturday. Sister Jennifer Mackey of Seymour, became the bride of Brother Mike Honeycutt. We wish them much happiness. We wish Sister Leah Honeycutt, a very Happy Birthday. Sister Betty Hesterlee, was back with us Sunday and seemed to be doing much better, a little tired but is much better.
We want to thank Connie Sherrill, from our quilters, for the beautiful quilting material she gave us. I suppose it’s material from her quilting shop, since she teaches quilting there. It is much appreciated.
I want to add this note, written by Earnestine Martin:
Ross and Earnestine celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary this month, May 7th, and to this marriage, we put together a blended family: Joyce(Stewart)Switzer, Rodney Stewart, Dean Martin, Cindy(Martin)Smith, Denise(Martin)Souder and Russell Martin. These dear children, had to endure a broken home. Through no fault of their own, this affects our children for life, and this is not God’s plan for families, but the devil works 24-7, especially on families. Friends, we need to pray daily for our families. Ross and I have had a good life together, we put God first. We love all our children, with all our heart. Two and a half years later, we added our little baby boy, Dennis Martin. He made us more blended. We pray daily for our children and thank God for them. We have truly been blessed.
