Monday, 4-29-13, what a beautiful day here in Peckerwood Hollar, the Redbud and Dogwoods will soon be in full bloom.

Norma Cross, Kenny Hunt and Seth helped removed the stuff from my living room and Jeff laid the carpet Saturday morning. They came back down and brought it all back in. Other helpers during the week were Kinsey, Kailey and Kyle.

We bought a new Cub Cadet at Cooper Lumber last week since my pastor David Welsh works there. He filled it with gas and delivered it out here and showed Kinsey, Kailey and Kyle and me how to operate it.

Terry Nelson brought us a couple of wild turkey legs out last week. We had a nice visit. Dick and Terry use to go to auction together.

Kelly and DeAnn Thompson, Kailey and Kyle was in St. Louis over the weekend. DeAnn attended a medical conference Saturday. They returned Sunday evening.

Freda Richards was able to be in church Sunday. Her and Betty Jenkins called to tell me Jackie Wayne Haden, is living in the Ozark Senior apartments now. Jackie is legally blind. They remember my aunt who was living there in the same complex, but couldn’t remember her name. Pauline Hathcock is some better, her grandchildren helped her do some things over the weekend.

There was a large group from Goodhope Baptist Church went to Ozark Friday night to the Stained Glass Theatre to watch Micah. It rained going up there and coming back.

Kinsey Thompson attended a party with several of her friends Saturday evening at Thornfield.

Attendance for worship service at Goodhope General Baptist was 62. Pastor David Welsh used scriptures Rev. 2, II Corinthians 6, James 1 and Revelations 22. It was a very inspiring anointed message from the Lord.

Saturday, May 4, will be workday at Goodhope General Baptist Church. There will be something for everyone to do. We will begin at 9:00 a.m.

Visiting the past week with Sue Brown was Jim and Georgia Brown of Illinois and Dianne Brown. They all went to Ruby Garden and had Chinese, then went to grave site of the late Tom Brown.

Norma Cross and me visited with Peggy Jenkins Tuesday at the Heart of the Ozarks Healthcare Center. Norma was back up there Thursday.

Sue Brown drove to Seymour Saturday to spend some time with her son and family, Rod, Lisa and Kayli Brown. They had lunch and did some furniture shopping.

Sue reports she got a new couch for living room and new table and chairs for her kitchen. Sue also said she has been busy repotting some plants.

Sunday, Sue, Dianne, Ron and Judy had lunch with Ervin and Lodean and enjoyed afternoon visiting.

I Thessalonians 5:9-10, “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that, whether we are awake or asleep, we should live together with him.”
