Arno – Hellen Blakey

4-28-19 I took my news in last Monday, and went to the store. I baked a cake and made a pea salad for Ellis’ birthday today. He came by after work and got his card and food.

I washed three loads of clothes and went to the drug store last Tuesday. Wednesday morning by 7:30 I had .1 inch of rain and by noon Thursday I had .8 inches. Saturday what came down didn’t show up in my rain gage.

I didn’t get to go to town Thursday morning, because of the rain.

Friday, before noon, I took some food over to Charlotte Bock. She had her knee operated on.

Nina and I went out and ate catfish. The manager told us that May 3 would be the last day they would be open at Uncle Roosters. Then, we went to Springfield to the pet store and got three dog collars. We made a whole circle that night 

Saturday morning, it started raining and I didn’t know if I would be going to the Missouri Association of General Baptists, but it quit and the sun came out so I took my food and went. Just as I started getting out of the car, it started sprinkling, but bless Steve Kutz who came by and took my food and Bible, and he took them up to the kitchen and I went into the church.

We sang two songs and the delegates names were called. Then we elected new officers where needed. At noon we were dismissed for lunch and when we came back at 1 we sang two songs and had testimonies, then Bro. Charles Peak brought us a very good message out of Job. His thought was, “Who Can I Count On?” Job. 16:1-10 and others.

I headed home after that and stopped at Jane’s Beauty Shop and picked up the “Dear Descendants” book of Columbia J. (King) Mankin for Monica. Then I went and filled the car with gas. When I got home Lee came over and mowed my grass It sure needed it in back, and it looks so nice down the road too.

Sunday was another nice day to go to church. Bro. Charles brought us another good message from Genesis 19:12-17. His thought was “Don’t Look Back.” This message tells you that what the Lord says to you, do it and don’t look back.

I went to Pete Workman’s visitation at Sunday evening, then I stopped by the nursing home and saw Wilma Hutchison, Lula Mae Dye, and her son, Mary Blakey and I stopped to see Clara Russo, but she was out with her daughter.

Let’s keep praying for our sick folks. My prayers and sympathy go out to the Pete Workman families, Candy Lane families, and all the others who have lost a loved one.

Keep praying for our nation, leaders, men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training.
