“Always climb slowly, steadfast; beware of the thistles as you tread your steps each day”
By Frances Brewer
Good morning. As usual the questions were asked, “Well where were you last week?” This 2x4 split-level was so comfortable, the weather just right to clear the recliner, then what? Time does fly by, plus it doesn’t hurt to take a break. No concern or worry over the “blue check.” It’s the same anyway. Now what better excuses could anyone ask for? As I have stated earlier about the evidence of spring, well for sure it’s here with all colors, just name it. Yet the pollen excels them all. It can really slow you down, that is if you’re more or less allergic to all kind of allergies. But you know we could go on an on with this type of an introduction. So lets take a morning break or whatever and thank the good Lord for the blessings we get as our quote says, “Always wear a geranium on your hat – then the warm welcome and smile underneath.”
The community churches Trinity and Bethany both had service well attended and visitors were welcome. A number of people were out due to illness. One of the spiritual thoughts from Pastor Jerry Roberts was really very inspiring as was brought out in the message, “Can others see Jesus in you?” Yes this can be applied to all of us.
The ladies met on Tuesday night making plans for Mother’s Day plus homecoming June 1.
Well let’s remember and pray for the closed in ones. One of our neighbors, Mrs. Nolan Watson is doing real well following surgery several days ago. Mrs. Dora Workman, very faithful at Trinity on Thursday and Friday of each week as she freshens up the church. Well while she was working with the flowers, she slipped and broke her arm. Their daughter from Florida is with the Workmans.
Dorothy Bumgarner was in Alabama on Tuesday for a medical checkup.
Gerald Cathey tells us he might have to take a pain pill every now and then but is back at work following back pains for months.
Jimmy Bone continues to keep rather closed in yet he and Evelyn both have their good days together.
So thankful for Dan Hicky’s recovery and his beautiful poems!
Oh yes, I may be a few days late letting you know what a wonderful time Nell Porter’s families had surprising her with a reception at the church on Sunday, April 13. All the church friends from and families from everywhere. Steve Craig preached for the morning service. It was good to have their son Brandon with them. Yet her real birthday was on the 21.
Peggy Armour, so what on Monday Peggy, Nell and Blanche Wilson, along with Tri-Bee had lunch together. Another good fellowship together.
On Wednesday Ralph Brewer’s nieces Marjorie Alexander and Geneve Colston from Cornelia came here. So with Inez Brewer we all enjoyed lunch at the Cracker Barrel. The other niece Ruby Batson was not able to come due to illness.
I enjoyed Debbie Flager who with her husband Bob carried Tri-Bee on a wonderful tour Sunday afternoon; across from me down here in the valley compared to their beautiful home on the hill, then down in the lower creek, a beautiful cabin overlooking a lake, then on down another two story house going up. Bob Flager with his wife from Indiana overlooking another lake. What a beautiful world we have right here at our own back door. We built here in 1942. Most all that land was known as the Mason Farm and it was all in cotton. Probably we’ll complete our story next week.
