“What kind of a shadow do you carry? Would you want to look at the end of the day?”
By Frances Brewer
“Good Morning.” Early to bed and early to rise! Then what? At the breaking of another day and my looks like spring out there. So this old-fashioned Grandma runs to the laundry room, prepares her coffee for that first cup, or could call it a B-12 shot, then by that time carry the laundry out in the carport to the clothes line and not letting any of that good old sunshine go to waste. Tri-Bee you mean to say you do not have a clothes dryer? Indeed I do! I looked at a sale paper where a dryer was on sale for $120 down at Hatcher’s Square in 1974. Still like new. Looked at the meter and that little hand was going like a twirl wind! So okay! Now I can be carrying on conservation! What are folks going to do with all this price economy? Well we old folks have gone through priceless days, depression, expressions and all other “pressions.” Yes truly it’s hard to knuckle down and except. Why worry about tomorrow? Those old hymn – why worry about tomorrow? The future is in His hands. He knows how much we can bare and will always care for His own. Keep smiling.
Due to the fact of so much illness flying around everywhere numbers of people attending their regular church services at Bethany and Trinity.
A number of visitors attended the services at Trinity and Pastor Jerry delivered his powerful sermons as usual. During the evening services, even before the message everyone was given the chance for testimonies, which led up to an old-fashion altar prayer with all kneeling and praying for not only the sick ones but most of all for lost loved ones for different ones who are not attending church and other needs. No I haven’t been ordained yet when the church families are all at the altar pouring their hearts out for their special needs it is all plainly shown that He is still on the throne working through His own. You may be in your teens or almost in the gay nineties He still cares for His own.
Mary and Frank Eaton recently joined Franklin and Stacy Eaton of Gainesville for dinner at the Blue Willow Inn, the occasion being Stacy’s birthday. Also enjoying this occasion were Stacy’s dad Wally Womble of Dallas and Ms. Colleen McClellan of Canton.
The Fairview Homemakers Club met at the lovely home of Shirley Lancaster on the Eatonton Highway last Wednesday. There was a good attendance with several guests present. Shirley Lancaster’s sisters, the former Kay Adcock and Juanita Adcock, joined them along with Louise Merritt of Hartwell who brought her mother Mrs. Martha Sue Harper for the meeting. Martha Sue brought a wonderful devotional. The ladies also enjoyed admiring jewelry that Kay had made and had on display at the meeting. Shirley was a wonderful hostess and the ladies enjoyed delicious refreshments, which she had made.
The Tri-Bee Community extends well wishes to Zach Wilson, son of Marc and Connie Wilson. Zach had to spend a few days in the hospital at Statesboro and Augusta for tests from complications from a viral infection he contracted. We wish him a quick recovery.
Marvin and Betty Ingalsbee again were called back to Tennessee due to the loss of another close relative who had passed away. It seems as if a number in that family have passed away in the past several months. Yet He never makes mistakes.
We all know of Roy Lambert’s passing. Everyone has known Roy for his devotion not only in Madison but everywhere in the office he held as a lawyer.
We know for sure that Morgan Memorial Hospital have two patients whom they have to keep separated. Who? Well Sadie Porter is in TCU plus Nell Porter is up the hall and has been a patient there for several days. Oh yes they’re on speaking terms and wonder which sister will be there next. No not Tri-Bee. Why? Not enough doctors and nurses to handle her and then there’s Kate Cathey with a number of walking equipment, plus Jack and Joan who were able to attend the Bethany services – Happy birthday 97. Blanche is the youngest and keeps check on all of us and ready to go when called upon.
Hilda and Crew Brewer are back at their home near Conyers doing fine and looking after each other.
Helen Wadford, wife of Jimmy’s Body Shop, has recently had shoulder surgery. We trust for an early recovery. Helen is the secretary of the Friendship Club, which meets in the Fellowship Club in Buckhead.
Here we are watching TV once in a blue moon thinking about giving a luncheon for the presidential election, yet if one of the candidates is not invited she or him might get their feelings hurt. Oh no we do not want that to happen. Watch your calendar for change of time.
