“Light moment that will weigh heavy in eternity”
Greetings from The Springs. In some way it seemed that this time change was not that big of a deal. Many of us have been looking forward to more hours of daylight, so here it is. Since Spring has sprung, spring into The Springs and take a sip of ‘spring Water.”
We will be very busy at the end of the month, so put these upcoming events on you calendar. Sunday, March 24 we will celebrate Women’s Day at 10 a.m. That same afternoon at 2:30 p.m. we will travel to Pleasant Glory Baptist Church to help Pastor Vincent and First Lady Sharon Casey celebrated their second anniversary. Pastor Terrell will bring the message for this evening service.
The Morgan County Ministers Union Revival will be held at Bethlehem Baptist Church from March 26-29.Service begins at 7:30 nightly and UBSC will be on duty for that Wednesday night. Instead of Bible Study please meet us at the Revival.
As customary The Springs will attend the Community Easter Worship Service, which is held on the square in downtown Rutledge. Rise early since service will start promptly at 7 a.m.
Now I am so excited to tell you about our cousin Kariellen Cunningham-Dunn who came down with the 30th Chapter of the 40th Phylaxis Society of the Masons for a meeting in Atlanta over the weekend. She is Hazel Terrell’s third cousin and Pastor’s fourth cousin. She is also the late Jannie B. Robinson’s sister’s aunt on her mother’s side. (Many of us knew “Aunt Jannie” who was one of the first African-American teachers in Morgan County.)

Five roosters means you don’t need an alarm clock
Chuck and Miriam Foster have five roosters that begin crowing at 3 a.m. you wouldn’t need an alarm clock with these around. When I was growing up we had chickens but I don’t recall having any that crowed that early. I think that it was about five a.m. I thought that was early!Frieda White spent the weekend at Christie’s house while she was away on business in New York. Frieda “cat-sat.”
Monday morning I looked at the clock and wondered how in the world the time had flown so fast. My husband asked this friend who was here if she had set her clock ahead. I realized that he thought that the weekend of the second was the time that he thought the time change came. He had set our clocks an hour ahead on Monday. I told him that the time change is March 10. So to you don’t forget to spring ahead!
