“A handful of patience is ‘what?’ Is worth more than a bushel of ‘brain’”
Good morning – to who are you saying “good morning?” Well for the first thing is thanking the good Lord for a warm place to stay, a roof over my head, food on my table, shoes on my feet and a good place to sleep. So lets not start the day off complaining, how cold is it? Or what will we say or ask ourselves this question when the evening sun goes down, have we accomplished anything, or have we checked or called in our neighbors or friends to see if they’re doing okay? Well that’s one thing I can look forward to every morning around 7:30 a.m. Good morning Mom are you warm, have the pipes froze up, did you lock your door last night, how ‘bout the bird feeders, has the gas man filled up your tank? So forth and so forth. Tri-Bee you mean to say you don’t have electric heat? Well back in 1942 we fed the chickens through the cracks, filled the other places probably with duct tape. So getting back to the quote, we had to have patience – brains had to be strong and clear! So after all this in times like these we need what? Our Lord and Saviour. Keep smiling.
The Trinity church families, along with visitors all were given a very warm welcome and with Pastor Roberts’ inspiring messages along with the 22-voice choir rendering specials that was filling right into the morning and evening messages. During the evening services slides were shown, which showed the many things that had been done in the past year and the things which we trust will be carried out for the coming year. Pastor Jerry has been at Trinity for three years, which the church appreciates so much.
The Bethany ladies honored Mrs. Bryan Hunt with a baby shower last Sunday afternoon in the fellowship hall. A good number of ladies enjoyed this happy time of food and fellowship.
The Sunday services at Bethany were well attended with Rev. Michael Greene bringing the messages. They welcomed several visitors who worshipped with them and everyone is cordially invited to all Bethany’s services. Continued prayers are requested for Rev. Myron Mattocks who underwent surgery at Emory last week and for Peggy Walker who suffered a fall recently and had surgery for a broken shoulder.
We surely trust that Peggy Walker, a faithful attendant at Bethany and who is with the S.O.L.M. recently fell and broke her shoulder. We hope she will not have to endure so much pain.
Don Gilberson from Wisconsin visited his friend Sonya Wiedman who is with the S.O.L.M. over the weekend. Don came from a very cold temperature place 12 degrees, whoa; perhaps things will warm up, as he will be spending sometime in St. Petersburg, Florida. Oh well perhaps we will soon be seeing the evidence of spring coming in. Yet we can say we’ve had a little touch of real winter.
I spent a short while with Georgie Carpenter, 92, Sunday afternoon. She is still lying there with that pleasant smile and with her home health nurses, Millie, Harriett and Jerry. Her needs are greatly taken care of.
Stacey and Rene Gray enjoyed their meal with their parents, the James Brewers on Saturday night.
Tri-Bee also enjoyed lunch with her neighbor Nancy Mitchell on Friday. Terry and Nancy Mitchell opened up their home Sunday and entertained Terry’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell from Covington, it being their 50th wedding anniversary. “Happy Anniversary.”
“Y’all Come” – and that is what Nell Porter and Frances Brewer did on Monday! When the call came in from their sister Blanche at 11:30 a.m. we were there by 12 o’clock. The other sisters Kate Cathey and Sadie Porter, who were once called the Julibee Gang, have rather slowed down. Kate, 96, is slowly recovering from a broken ankle; Sadie, 95, is as content as all of us put together. Okay Tri-Bee you’ll soon catch up. Boy guess by then I can say the Gay Nineties. This column is gradually drying up. So put your application in, no degrees required. All you have to do is to learn how to S P E LL and use good E N G L I S H.
