Study means new insights into the Book of Daniel
As we all know this is a short week and not much news, but we all must contribute to the cause.
The weather is always a good subject, neutral, doesn't hurt feelings, sometimes wrong and maybe right is our weather forecaster, cooler and it's beginning to feel like fall.
On Wednesday nights we are enjoying the book of Daniel being taught by our pastor and all who attend are enjoying his teaching. He's bringing out passages in Daniel that most of us had never noticed and is very interesting. We're just in the sixth chapter so you still have time to join with us and at the same time there are programs for all ages of your children. It begins at 7 p.m.
Stephanie Martin along with Lilly, Noah and Leigh's son, Chase, enjoyed a visit to the Tennessee farm of Aunt Barby. There they helped Uncle Riffle celebrate his birthday. And also, Alex Smith was chosen to be one of the fifth graders that participated in "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?" and did pretty good, I did hear.
Our girls, plus a few visitors enjoyed the lock-in on Friday night. Every girl needs "just us girls" time.
We visited with Al and Maudie Buice on Thursday afternoon after our socializing with two doctors in Covington. As most of those our age, we have a very active "social" life.
Most of us are getting the old stove heated up to stick that big bird in soon. Our crowd will not be as many as usual, but we will surely enjoy those that will be here and I'm sure most of you, like me, are already planning your menu. We all do have so much to be thankful for, not only at Thanksgiving but all year 'round.
Sunday night was the Thanksgiving Dinner and singing at Sewell Methodist. As always the Homeland Boys were good, and I always enjoy singing at Sewell. This church family knows how to make visitors feel welcome. Thank you, Ronnie, for always inviting me to come sing.
My dear friend from grammar school, June Henley, and I recently met at the ChopHouse and spent several hours together and enjoyed again just being old friends. We need to do this often.
You do not want to miss the big Christmas Auction at the ABC Auction in Crawfordville on Nov. 22nd, Thanksgiving Day. It begins at 4 p.m. and they will have a fantastic selection of brand new, guaranteed tools, electronics, household good, toys, and so much more and you can eat in Pat's restaurant there on location.
Looking into December, we will have our combination Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner on Dec. 2nd.
Christmas caroling on Saturday, Dec. 22nd.
Nov. 24th there will be a benefit singing at the Social Circle Theatre for Mary Bitsy Robbins. There will be several singing guests including the Homeland Boys, Changed 4, Vessels of Praise and Divine Three. It will start at 4 p.m. and go until around 8 p.m.
Anniversary blessings to Steve and Cindy Smith on the 25th, special wishes for James Buice and Bud Malcom as they celebrate a birthday on the 27th and to my special little friend Rachael Moore on the 29th.
And don't forget to pray for our sick, our lonely, our bereaved, remember someone this Thanksgiving with a phone call or visit. In our society today, most of us forget so easily.
As we are going into the Thanksgiving season, I always like to think on what all I have to be thankful for, more so this time of the year. Ephesians 5:20, "Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." And that does mean "ALL THINGS."
So until next week, may the Lord bless you real good.
