May is always a busy month, lots of things going on. Hope you all take time to enjoy the beautiful Dogwood trees as you drive up and down the roads.

Norma Cross and Kenny Hunt came down last week to help put my livingroom back in order and mow some grass. Of course it is ready to cut again.

Tony Richards brought us some mushrooms Tuesday. He is working down by Kimberling City. He said he has found hundreds. I think he gave most of them away.

It was so pretty Tuesday evening so Katie Jenkins and Kinsey Thompson packed a picnic bag and went up the holler on the branch to eat. I’m guessing they just wanted to get by themselves to talk girl stuff.

Bob and Ella May Husky came over last week and bought a riding lawn mower from us. We had a good visit sitting out on the front porch. Bob called me later to let me know he mowed in half the time by not using the push mower.

Danny and Beth came down for a visit last week. Danny says he is having a hard time getting his garden in.

Kinsey and Katie were among the high school students that attended the FFA Banquet Friday evening.

The Goodhope General Baptist Church did their annual pick up trash day on O highway from T highway to the Red Bank Store. It looks like people would have more respect for their country then to throw their trash out along the roads.

Attendance at Goodhope General Baptist Church was 65. There was several out due to illness and other reasons.

Our pastor David preached from Revelations 2:12. The church of Pergamos. He used Hebrew 4:12 and other scripture. He spoke on how Christians sometimes compromise the word of God.

Our special music was by Sue Adams. Art Hampton also sang and played his guitar.

A woman’s/girl’s banquet will be held Saturday evening, the 11th at 5 p.m. at Goodhope General Baptist Church. Sue Clayton will be the speaker.

Freda Richards couldn’t make it to church Sunday. I talked to her a while ago. She just can’t rid of the cough, but she was feeling better. Pauline Hathcock is still shut-in, but she is improving.

Sue Brown, Dianne, Lynn Clayton attended a women’s rally at Cross Point Church Saturday night. There was special music, games, Bible scripture on the book of Esther.

Sue drove to Gentry Sunday morning to hear her son, Rodney, preach.

Andy and Faye Hitchock drove up from Arkansas to spend Monday night with Ervin and Lodean Schultz then drove on to Illinois to visit family and friends.

Psalms 55:22, “Cast thy burden upon the Lord and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”
