A fellow (not from here) once asked me what a hoedown was. I told him it’s kinda like a shindig, but more like a hootenanny.  I could tell he was still confused because his face went all catawampus.

T.O.P.S. meets in the basement every Tuesday, at 2:00 p.m.

Grace Foot Clinic will be here on Thursday, Jan. 9. If you have an appointment and cannot keep it, please call in and cancel.

From my Mom’s Bible – Don’t be discouraged when things work out differently than you had hoped. The new path you must walk is of God’s choosing. It will enrich your life and eventually lead you home. A detour is not a disaster; it’s an open door to greater service and blessing. 

The Center will close on Monday, January 20 for the holiday.

Dress your kids for school after their nighttime bath; then you don’t have to fight with them in the morning. Just add breakfast and go.

Until next week, have a good ‘un.
