“A bore only stops talking long enough to make sure you're still listening"
By Frances Brewer
Good morning! You better believe it too; sometimes we have to listen out of both ears then what? Grab some cotton and put it in your ears. Then when the conversation is over well what was that all about? Then again I may be in the midst, where it’s much better to be sure your spectacles are clean and before you speak out be sure, be careful, be friendly and at the end of the day ask ourselves this question? Did I get a blessing that will be to my benefit or to others, something to think about? On this Monday morning having gone through my usual therapy raising the blinds, having two cups of coffee, then workers going to and fro. Oh no I can’t leave out the birds, in other words it takes a lot of praying when I ask myself this question? Will I be able to fill three yellow pages of this past week’s news items? Numbers will be asking where and what happened to your column? Not only is my pen getting dull yet it’s worth it all to know or learn something new every day. The Heavenly Father knows it all.
It seems as if the flu bug has somewhat slowed down at the attendance is getting back to normal in the Tri-Bee churches. However, Pastor Jerry was trying his best to fight it off on Sunday yet he continued with filling the pulpit with strong messages. Numbers of visitors attended. The bus ministry bringing in the ones who have never attended and now growing in the Lord. The Ladies Fellowship will meet on Tuesday night in the Fellowship Hall.
Gil Busnitiz was back having gone with his daughter Janice Connelly and her three boys to Josiah’s graduation from Navy Recruit Training Center in Great Lakes, Illinois February 29. He is now in Pensacola, Florida for TechTraining.
Even though here we are again getting back to the physical ailments we do want to remember through prayer and concern the Ted West family in the loss of their loved one, Ted West who recently passed way following an extended illness. To his wife Nancy and their daughter Teddie Sue Wilson, the wife of John Wilson over on the Rip Wilson’s farm. Teddie Sue and John have attended Trinity Church a number of times.
Another patient in Athens Regional Hospital is Gavin Prickett who lives on the Buckhead Road. Gavin really enjoyed his breakfast every morning at the “Gathering Place” in downtown Buckhead. Yet this time he did not show up. No then Jan Jordan knew something was wrong. She sends someone to find out, having to unlock, go in, there Gavin was laying on the floor, having making quick calls, then rushed to the hospital. At this writing he is suffering from a stroke. His sister Grace from Alabama is with him. No we never know how much it means to have friends and someone to care. All of you older ones remember Gavin’s mother, Evelyn Prickett an R.N. nurse at Morgan Memorial Hospital. Let’s remember Gavin in our prayers.
A number of family members were visiting with Ralph Brewer on Saturday. Hilda Brewer continues to not let the knee surgery get ahead of her.
Sadie Porter continues to enjoy visitors and don’t you know she is looking forward to March 14, (96). When! Another one of our “Gay Nineties,” Martha Sue Harper, 92, is a patient there in the hospital with her happy outward appearance. She’ll endure her illness with a smile, plus an extra smile shown to her precious family sharing their time. A very closely knit family. Share sometime with someone who cares this next week.
