We extend our sincere sympathy to Chris Lambert in the death of Roy. Chris worked with us with the first hospital auxiliary in Madison in 1991. It is my prayer that she and her family will be comforted by the Lord in this time of loss. The Grace Bible Church will have their singing on Thursday, February 28, at 7 p.m. You are invited.
Jean and Buddy Phillips went camping in their travel trailer last weekend.
John and Gail Wade had the children to visit over the weekend.
The Lake Oconee Baptist Chapel women met last Thursday to plan some women’s projects for the future.
The Buckhead-Bethany Friendship Club met on Wednesday at the Buckhead Baptist Fellowship Hall. Two very knowledgeable young men spoke on the civil war. It was enjoyed very much. The club meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 1:30 p.m. You are invited.
Twice a month before prayer meeting at the Lake Oconee Baptist Chapel there is a prayer walk. Those that are able to walk make rounds of the church building praying as they walk outside. Those that are unable to walk well sit on the seats on the porch and pray, all for 30 minutes before the prayer service begins. You are invited to take part.
Jimmy Ray Breedlove is still not doing well. We pray for his strength to return.
The Buckhead Baptist Church had a wonderful Sweetheart Banquet on Saturday night with good attendance.
Gwen Alliston went with her sister and sister-in-law to Riegelwood, North Carolina to see the oldest sister who is 82-years-old.
Stephen Clifford Grandt was born January 28 at St. Mary’s Hospital. He weighed eight pounds two ounces. His mother is Carol Ann Grandt. He is the grandson of Jo Ann Roberts and the late Raymond Clifford Roberts and Stephen and Linda Grandt of Ft. Pierce, Florida. He is named for his granddaddy Stephen Grandt and the late Raymond Clifford Roberts and for several generations with the name Clifford. I understand that he is doing well and is growing really fast.
The Lake Oconee Baptist Chapel had their singing on Sunday night. On Wednesday they had supper before prayer meeting from food left from the Valentine Banquet.
D. J. Jones visited James and Bettie Dyer. D. J., along with James Dyer and many others, have been sick. I pray for you all to be well soon.
There is still sickness at my house. Beverly was sick; then I was, along with my husband. Beverly is sick again. The cold, the nausea, whatever has been going in rounds everywhere.
I was told that Debbie Strange is doing better. She was in the hospital. I don’t know Debbie but knew the Strange family for years when they lived at Buckhead.
I saw Gladys Walker in Madison last week. We don’t see each other too often. We have known each other for years.
I made yet another mistake in my column last week. I told of James and Bettie Dyer being crowned the king and queen at Beacon Heights for 2008. The occasion of the crowning was Valentine’s Day. It was also their anniversary. I said that it was their 21 anniversary. I was wrong. They were married for 22 years. James said that my mistake made them one year younger. So now I stand corrected. I guess that we all would be glad to have one year taken from our age. But it doesn’t work like that though in the Lord. Our days are numbered.
Dave and Betty Andrade went on a motorcycle trip.
