“Looking back? Things that were right are now wrong! Now things, which were wrong, are now right!”
By Frances Brewer
Good morning. Let’s look and read the quote once again. Probably some can get by with most anything. At times we might think oh well! Why not? There’s nothing wrong, twill all go down the drain. Yes but sometimes the drain doesn’t flush out like we expected. Well Tri-Bee which side of the bed did you get up on this Monday morning? Well to be honest with you am I going to try to fill in our column? No! I’ll not doing if I do fail on this weekly Monday morning yet by the time my devotion is over and that cup of coffee I’ll begin to say, “Oh yes I forgot so and so.” So way out her six miles out of the city limits you’d be surprised at the different things that are in operation with most all going in opposite directions, chicken houses, dairying, carpenters, painters, new houses going up. Most of all I’m so thankful for our small neighborhood being friendly and free to call on one another. The good Lord leads us on!
Trinity Church Vacation Bible School is in full swing, which began Sunday night through Thursday, 6:30 to 8:30-p.m. Good attendance on Sunday with a number of visitors. Another event is the baby shower Sunday from 3 to 4 p.m. in the fellowship hall for Christine and Scott Allgood, who are proud parents and faithfully work with the young people.
The Fifth Sunday night singing on Sunday, June 29.
It’s like I have stated, rather short with local news.
Harvey Clothier, who is with the SOLM and attends Trinity Church, is undergoing some rather serious tests this week.
Bruce Harper is doing very well having been a patient in an Athens Hospital for several days recently.
Again the families of the late John and Nell Haley met in the Bethany Fellowship Hall Saturday for their reunion. The four children, Dorothy Eaton, George Haley, Inez Brewer and Robert Haley with members of their family. George and Becky came by for a short while and visited with Curtis and Kathleen Baughcum for a short while.
Blanche and Jake Wilson enjoyed having Bertie and Leon Alligood from Lebanon, Tennessee visit with them this past week. The Alligoods spent the first part of the week down in South Georgia visiting Leon’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Alligood, then they came on up to Bertie’s parents to finish out their week of vacation. All of the families enjoyed getting together and visiting. They returned home on Sunday.
Time for fresh vegetables. If you want good ole fresh butterbeans and other vegetable, where? The Gathering Place in Buckhead. If Jan can’t get them here boy off to the Farmers Market and she loads up.
It was rather like ole times for the morning services at Bethany this past Sunday to see this large family of descendants of the late Ben Harris and the Wood families come in. I may be getting along in age yet numbers of these whom I do not remember; but I do give Eleanor Wood Hickman credit for giving to me the names. One of the things, Mr. Ed Wood was Sunday school superintendent for a number of years, his wife whom we called “Miss Stella.” One other thing on the Harris side Miss Nell would walk from her house, which is still the one on the corner on Bethany Road. She would clean the church, sweep the yard as long as she was able. Again thanks to Eleanor. Here are the ones who attended the Sunday morning service and continue to appreciate the good old days at their home church. This younger generation hopefully will be around to reveal the same thing.
