We were glad to see Bro. Allen Woodard, wife, daughter and his mother. Bro. Allen preached for us when we were without a pastor. We still love them.
I didn’t get to talk to Christine this morning. She was getting ready to go to the doctor. She thinks her leg is some better.
Dr. Larry Gotts was on Feedback on Tuesday morning. It’s always good to hear the good Doctor answer the questions that are called in. They always have an interesting program.
Joy comes from putting another’s welfare ahead of your own.
