Thanks for all the calls and prayers said for my mother. She did great and is already walking better on that leg with her bionic hip. It amazes me what they can do today in medicine. Praise God for doctors, nurses and all in the medical field. You are doing God’s work.

Keep Thurman in your prayers as he goes in August 4th for back surgery. Pray that his surgery turns out as well as moms. He desperately needs relief from the pain he is suffering as a result of the compression of the sciatic nerve. One of his doctors told him he must have worked real hard to get his back in this kind of shape.

Please keep the family of Doris Lett in your prayers. She was an unpretentious lady that loved her family and I know there will be a terrible void here on earth but heaven gained a beautiful angel.

Also keep Jason Shoemake and his wife Christy and two girls in your prayers. Christy is Thurman’s niece. Jason is 39 years old and was hurt in a work accident. He is paralyzed from the waist down and had an episode on the 15th of July and has been nonresponsive since. Christy is facing some serious decisions in the coming weeks. This happened in Louisiana, but he was moved back to Kentucky this week to a long term facility in Bowling Green. Please remember this family.

Lots going on in the city. Trying to get all our i’s dotted and t’s crossed to begin work on the fire hall. We will be having a ground breaking ceremony soon. Dates to be announced.

As we get closer to the Solar Eclipse, we are hearing we may have lots of people coming from everywhere. We are planning on having a fun time at the park beginning at noon and wrapping up by 3 p.m. We’ll have corn hole, bocce ball, washer throwing and maybe some sing a longs. Make you plans to join us at the Adairville Park (where the ball fields are located to a special time.) Don’t forget t shirts are on sale by Lindsey Allen for just $12.00. Order them from her Facebook page “My Friend Lindsay.” They are super nice and will glow in the dark. Buy yours today while they are still available.

Also, mark your calendars for Sunday, July 30th from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. for the Back to School Bash 2017 hosted by Hope Apostolic Church. They will be giving away school supplies as they have in the past. Come out for a fun time and celebrate going back to school.


When we are young, we just can’t wait to grow up, but wasn’t life simpler when we had someone to take care of all our needs and we just had to play, do a few chores maybe but not many worries. Then that day comes when you are on your own. Wow, the day you’ve dreamed of freedom without having to answer to anyone. But wait what is this? Electric bills, mortgage, car payments, phone bills, gas bills, water bills and we are just getting started. This isn’t fun anymore. Adulthood is not quite what we thought it would be. Too many decisions to make and always the possibility of making the wrong ones. It’s dealing with difficult people on our own. Forget this, I want my mama. Seriously, being an adult is hard but it has it’s rewards and while we don’t usually call on mama to fix it, we do have someone who can fix it that we can call on. Praise God for whom all blessings flow. “Nothing Shall be Impossible.”
