“Take time today and enjoy what you’re doing, then you’ll enjoy what you have done”
By Frances Brewer
Good morning! No let’s not talk about the hot weather just keep moving on, take time to draw a deep breath, keep on filling our cup with good old cold water; not only fill our cup with water but for this column to continue. I had to fill my cup with blessings, which flow from above and get my spiritual together. Okay, that’s my Monday morning text taken from “Tri-Bee’s version.
As I have stated time after time the Barrows Grove, not boon docks continues to grow, six miles out of city limits. Well can we get “Meals on Wheels” out here? You better believe it. When I go to the backdoor that’s where it all comes to. Okay, in the grocery store I see Organic in the vegetable bins. No not way out here. Home grown, homemade, Egglands Best No. 1, one-half pound of real butter, a loaf of homemade bread, a dozen eggs (real layers), three different kinds of vegetables, plus an arrangement of flowers. Yes, that’s what you call a real meal from the horse farmer across the road. Thanks Carol and Mark.
A number of young people from Trinity Church with Pastor Jerry and Assistant Tim Davenport are spending this week at a Christian church “The Wilds” in North Carolina. This is a week where hundreds from ages nine to 13 will enjoy spiritual training under good leadership. Also, V. B. S. will be in session the week following this.
The Trinity Church family extends their love, prayer and concern to Estelle Slaughter during the long-term illness and loss of her daughter Suzanne Slaughter Ross who recently passed away from her terminal illness. Susie’s first illness began at the age of 26, a long with years of remission. She attended Trinity Christian school at one time and later she and her husband were with the faculty at UGA. Susie being the only girl from a large family of brothers. Memorial service will be at Trinity Saturday morning at 11am. To all the family keep looking up.
Another loss of a loved one, Kevin Pope, 21, son of Audrey Guinn Polk, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Guinn (Mary), was killed in an accident recently. Audrey at a very young age attended church at Trinity with her family. Now she has a family. All things are never understood. This we do know that God never makes a mistake.
Martha Sue Harper and Georgie Carpenter both continue to have their home care nurses who know each and every need their patients need. Mary Larman continues to keep up her therapy at TCU.
Terry and Nancy Mitchell were in Covington on Sunday attending a family reunion.
Again it seems as if this week’s column is rather brief, probably this steamy hot weather, not only keeps our news closed in due to the fact too hot for we old feeble minded, knock kneed, walking cane about to break, cannot get out. Also having to keep the blinds closed. This question was asked. What in the world and how did we once take this kind of weather? Well, my goodness we at one time wore diapers did we not? Okay from there up to a more maturity type of life, now here we are in high class and think we’re still able to continue to “dance with the stars.” So the best kind of medication is to say Lord continue to give to all of us a sense of mind, good health to continue to take care of ourselves to the best of our ability, and live a life like you want us to not the way we want to. All Glory to Him!
