Good morning Lewisburg - a town with a big heart.
I went to church and had a good time in the Lord’s house. It was a good sermon, good fellowship and a good Lord’s day. We prayed for rain. The Lord already knew we need rain, but humbling yourselves in pray and ask believing, the Lord is always there.
Thank you Lord, for the rain you sent down on us, as unworthy as we are. Time to get holy. I want to praise your name. I am not ashame. The weather is one thing they cannot vote on in the White House. Amen.
They must have tried. That’s why we almost burnt up. Stay on the right side of the cross. The left side is hot.
A 3-year-old boy said he had an Ipod. I remember the only I saw was an okra pod and pepper pod. Progress is out of my league. I turn on the radio. That’s about it.
Today, Monday, it is a beautiful day. It’s been smooth cloudy all day. Looking for more rain and cooler weather. Five to 10 degrees lower is good.
Tuesday morning there is a slow rain coming down. What a wonderful sound to wake up to. All good things come from above. Texting and twitting, farm is not spell E.I.E.I.O.
Not much going on here. I’m just paying bills and trying to stay cool. I went to Bible study. Stony Hildabrand was our teacher. Read your Bible, study to be informed and enlightened.
No news from Dunmo. Has Mrs. Silvey retired? I miss her news.
They changed the Coursey reunion to the last Saturday in August. mark it on your datebook. It’s still at the Sportsman Club in Russellville. Bring food, pot luck and good luck. Bring something for the auction.
It’s Friday the 13th. I don’t really believe in good luck or bad luck. But this is the third pencil I have wrote with this morning. The lead keeps breaking.
I went to Johnny Balwins auction sale. Rain coming down. Joey White and Jerry Shamwell bought the land and church.
I didn’t stay for all of it, the rain was the best part of the day. Went to Wally World and stopped and ate at the Ranger Grill.
I have sun-dried tomatoes on the vine and dried pepper and baked squash - all from the hot weather. I tried to have a garden.
Sorry, Drexel Johnson, about your sister. Peace be with you and your family.
A new thrift shop is open on 431 at the side of the Lewisburg General Store. Stop by and check it out.
Down Memory Lane
Our homeplace is torn down, but lots of memories remain.
I wish I could go back to that time again.
I didn’t realize we were poor. We had clothes on our backs and shoes on our feet and plenty of food on the table to eat.
We made it just fine, without toys, you see.
We played kick the can, a game called cue sheep. We would drop the handkerchief and hide and go seek and look for you and you didn’t make a peep.
Auntie over, a ball pitched over the house. Mom always made us stop before we broke the windows out.
We’d play till dark then catch lightning bugs. We made us a night light with a big jug. The bugs would twinkle, twinkle and we would fall asleep. More memories I will tell you same time next week.
It’s the Lord’s day. Go to church.
God bless you all.
