TRI-BEE: Frances Brewer
“Spring Flowers! Let’s bloom where we’re planted”
Good morning. Indeed spring flowers bring May showers. Open up the doors let the fresh air in, get rid of the winter mold and spider webs then get out and enjoy the bouquet of flowers and all the things in which we are blessed with. By the wayside, which is lined with not only beautiful roses but also a variety of everything. Yet sometimes our path may have thistles, which we could so easily trip then that’s when they begin to fade. Oh well Tri-Bee, what kind of an introduction. In this 2x4 split-level you can even see the traffic over on I-20 looking through the double windows, plus here on Barrows Grove Road my! Yes in the early morning you can almost smell the good old coffee perking at the “Gathering Place” in Buckhead. If you go in you’ll surely get the “Headline News.” So let your light shine and continue to bloom wherever you’re planted. Yet keep fresh water.
The Trinity Church family has had different speakers in the last few weeks since our former pastor Jerry Roberts felt led to go. He had been our pastor and shepherd for the last four and one-half years, and the church family did appreciate and give him the praise for building up and keeping our closely knit family together, and different ways and things which were accomplished while here. Yet Pastor Jerry felt that the Lord was leading him in another direction. Bro. Tim Davenport was the speaker. He is our assistant pastor and Don Davis was the speaker for the evening service. The choir will present the Easter Cantata for the morning service.
Stephanie Kenney spent Sunday night and Monday with her parents Steve and Sara Nell Craig.
Happy anniversary to James and Inez Brewer. We enjoyed the meal with them on Saturday night.Those enjoying this occasion were Stacey and Rene Gray, Keith Brewer plus the hop to hop grandma who is gradually getting almost to normal. Not quite ready for the lawn mowers. Yet the neighbor’s handy man slips out and manicured the yard. From all our rain, which we have been so blessed with has really kept the grass growing.
Marvin and Betty Ingalsbe had as weekend guests their daughter, Debbie Sebastian and grand-daughter Kayla from Bowling Green, Indiana. Kayla will spend a couple of weeks with her grandparents.
A number of the Bethany folks attended the Bethany plaque ceremony held in front of the church recently. Jake Wilson Jr., being the oldest 88, cut the ribbon. Bob Moorhead the next one who is 82. My how time does so rapidly pass with all the older family Bethany folks have passed on during a recent conversation.
Ralph Brewer the oldest Bethany resident, 95, and Kate Cathey 98. Then probably Martha Sue Harper 92. Indeed we’re in the “gay nineties.”
Another thing we’re going to put a plaque over my bedroom wall Monday morning Tri-Bee flashing with this quote “Okay it’s time for someone else to have this degree in journalism.” Keep looking up. All tunnels of life always have an opening.
