Upcoming Christmas Celebration

Editor Buckhead News 0 Comments

Families are getting ready for Christmas. Some are having family reunions. Others are getting ready to travel to see family out-of-town. Children are excited because Santa is coming. My family used to come at Christmas, the brothers and sisters when their children were small. They waited until after their children had seen what they were getting for Christmas from that fat jolly man St. Nick. They would all get there anywhere from mid-morning until just before lunch. I had one sister that was a “big” talker. She took up nearly …

‘Greatness is serving the lost’

Editor Sugar Creek News 0 Comments

Pearl Harbor Day today, Monday, also today makes 59 years I’ve been married to this old guy I live with. Where did the time go? Beautiful day today, not a typical December day and thankful for it. Sunday was also a blessed and beautiful day, with a nice crowd. Butch took his message from Mark 2:13-17, “A Scandal”. We all know hypocrites, especially those claiming to be spiritual. Jesus left and found those that were sick or insane. Mark wrote to let us know how He could be depended on. …

So glad to be back, and with a new pacemaker!

Editor Buckhead News 0 Comments

Here I am, back again. Two weeks ago I had a pacemaker put in. It was two surgeries in one. They put in a backup pacemaker going through my groin. When the real pacemaker was in place, they removed the backup. I was awake and talking to them the whole time. When it hurt I told them. It wasn’t bad at all. It was just different. I thank God for it all. Hallie Hickman had a housewarming on last Saturday. Her new home is attached to her son’s house on …

I don’t know what happened last week Patrick said he did not get my news so some of this will flow over from last week. I’m so tired of discussing the weather so I won’t do that this week. I hope all my readers had a great week and I missed being with you last week. But I have a good excuse. I had a last minute chance to go see my three-month-old great grandson and I could not turn down this opportunity as I had not met him and …

I know most of you are enjoying this little change in our weather pattern. And it does feel good.

A good day on Sunday with a good crowd and visitors. “Ten words to describe God.” Butch’s message taken from Exodux 20: 3-17. Yes, what could be more powerful than to study the Ten Commandments?

The congregation at Lake Oconee Baptist Chapel was pleased with their high attendance Sunday, Sept. 20. They had 93 there. Their music director was out sick and none of his family came. People worked hard and prayed for the attendance. So many of you came for this Sunday. If you were there as a visitor why not go back for more visits and on down the road perhaps God will lead you as a member one day. I was told how the pastor and his wife are so loving to …
