Wednesday we played cards here (as I was going Thursday) Marvine Borders and Lucille Whitson. I keep asking for a fourth, don’t know why someone doesn’t come play and make the fourth.
Thursday was the Truthseekers Sunday school class brunch at Ada Dorris. We ate, had a great devotional by Joyce Chapman, others there were of course, Hazel, Patsy Mohon, Lois Ann Cornelius, Jean Smock, Shirley Coursey and Wanda Coursey. Ada had the table set very pretty. We had pot-luck, lots of it. Later, we exchanged our gifts, we had drawn names for. Hester Martin, Evelyn Mohon and Beverly Harris did not attend. We had a great time together.
I’m gonna get through my goings first. Friday, Virginia Hart invited Lucille Whitson, Marvine Borders and yours truly, we had great soup and played rook. If you want me next week, just “holler.”
Well, here we go once more trying to get the gosh awful mess cleared up once again, OK. The new baby Keaten belongs to Steve and Brooke Allen, got it! His grandparents are Danny and Kathy Basham, OK. The great grandparents are Kenneth and Joyce Chapman and Bro. Basham. If it doesn’t make sense this time, I promise, I promise I will not try to clarify again. Good luck Keaten.
Lorene Williams is visiting son Kenneth and Martha Williams a few days after being in SKY for several days.
Our sympathy to W.D. Gilliam and the rest of the family in the death of his sis Alta Mae Hardison.
Glad to hear better report of D.J. Moor, whom is in a hospital in Nashville and has really had a tough time. The prognosis is much better, so maybe soon he can be back home.
Our best wishes to Nael and Thelma Grayson as they celebrate their special 60th anniversary.
Enjoyed a call from cousin Carlene Harris and daughter Sherry of Louisville on Saturday afternoon. Carlene is having a rough time now, however the latest report from the doctor is that the problem with her stomach is NOT cancer, but a lot of infection. So hopefully with new medication that will relieve more of the pain and Sherry, being the good girl that she is, takes care of Mom, Dad, the house, her brother Gerald and works at a job away from home. So she is one busy girl. She had brought home some Gaither videos and Carlene was really enjoying those. Keep them in mind as you have your prayer time. They all need it.
Also enjoyed a call Saturday afternoon from former Spa boy Virgil Lee Sears. He was raised here and now lives in Elkton. Like some of the rest of us, he does not feel as we as maybe he would like. He still has his sense of humor and is hanging in there. Have a good Christmas.
Well, of all thing, poor Dick Dickerson is in the hospital at NorthCrest in Springfield. Seems quite banged up. I’ve always said the fall was not so bad, the landing is the killer. Hope he is soon feeling much better and gets uplifting reports from his doctors and can soon be back to his usual activities. He is one busy man. Sorry he is so handicapped now. Keep yourself in good spirits and hurry home.
Have you been enjoying the beautiful, awesome sunsets? They have been absolutely breathtaking.
Congratulations to interim pastor Bro. Derrick and Lyndsey Benton on the birth of their precious little girl named Ella Marie. She was born on the 4th, weighing in at six pounds and was 19 1/2 inches long.
Beverly Harris said in Sunday school this morning that Nelson’s mom, Mrs. Margaret Harris, was in the hospital. Where, I don’t know. I asked but didn’t find out. We wish for her to be kept as comfortable as can be.
Rufus Coursey sat with Bob this morning while I went to Sunday school. Other in this week have been Emily Storm, Stacey Jernigan and Kim Richardson. We appreciate you thinking of us and stopping in for a visit.
Remember, it is soon going to be 2009. I never really make a resolution, other than each day to try and do better the next day, which I fall short there as well. Anyway we have much to be thankful for and wish each and everyone a very merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
See ya next time around.
