The chill of winter is with us this week as we go into the third week of February. Were having to put another log on the fire “so to speak.”
Friends of Marsha and Dean Lyon were happy to see them come back to church Sunday. Everyone is wishing them better health as soon as possible.
Jeri Miller stopped by as she went into town Monday, for a short visit.
Best wishes to Ernestine Gaddy who had foot surgery recently.
Enjoying a KWFC Southern Gospel, seven-day Caribbean cruise aboard the Carnival Conquest (not the Carnival Triumph), were Ernestine Gaddy and Jean Suman.
After spending Friday night in Springfield with Helen Miles, they rode the bus stopping in Jackson, Mississippi for an overnight stay, then on to New Orleans to board the colossal cruise line Sunday afternoon. Spending two leisurely days at sea and three ports of call at Montego Bay, Jamaica and George Town, Cayman Islands and Cozumel, Mexico. Returning to the USA after two days at sea.
Each evening the Southern Gospel groups (Gold City, White River, The Texans, Second Generation and KC Johns) performed in concert and a short service by a different minister, at devotionals each morning. They enjoyed evening elegant dining in the awesome dining room. There was always an abundance of delicious food on most decks.
On February 2nd Ernestine and Jean who were accompanied by Paul Guiley and Helen Miles, attended the beautiful wedding of Jean’s granddaughter, Elizabeth Smith and Cameron Chenoweth, in Harrisonville.
On Sunday while in the area, Ernestine, Paul, Jean and Helen attended church at Lane Avenue Baptist Church that Joe and Ernestine pastored several years. They were dining guests of Theresa and Lee Bridges and daughter, Carlyn, Amanda and Joe Pearce. Joe had prepared an outstanding tasty platter of smoked pulled pork.
Karen K. Davis and I were in Mountain Home Tuesday of last week and she and Dave were seeing their doctor the next day.
Gainesville Chapter 432 OES will meet February 25th and encourage all members to attend.
There were 88 in Sunday services at Lilly Ridge Church. Bro. Dale Roberts is presiding back in the pulpit and received a big welcome back. He and Barbara visited several of us last week and brought flowers for Valentine’s Day to each.
I have been hearing of deer coming up close to houses and people where they can find acorns on the ground, as they are hungry.
Best wishes to Marlyn Pitcock, of Forsyth, who has been having some health problems and saw his doctors in Forsyth and in Springfield recently.
Just a thought, “There’s nothing really wrong with the “pay-as-you-go plan except that few people have enough money left for the return trip.”
