Margaret Bell and Jo Marcrum had lunch Sunday with Thomas and Leigh Ann Bell.
Dennis and Julie Godbee spent Sunday with Dink and Sandra Dorminey. That night they had fifth Sunday singing at their Wesley Chapel Wesleyan Church. However, they went to the Woodville Baptist Church that Sunday night. Their choir sang two songs. One song was, “Lighthouse.” This was a song that their church had written in honor of a young man years ago who was such a great witness for Jesus Christ. He was forever witnessing. Then he was tragically killed. At their church they built a “Lighthouse” replica of wood that is in the church yard. He was a lighthouse for Jesus. The song that they sing has the words that tell the story of this young man. Someone put music to those words. I’m sure that it is a beautiful song that is a blessing.
Since Almedia Smith’s death Earl is with one of his daughters at this time. Billy and Donna Hinesley are at the home place trying to get things in order.
Edna Smith spent a week at Monroe with Monica Evelyn. Before she went she was watering her turnip greens with the hose. The hose pulled a barrel that had rough edges. The barrel hit Edna’s leg. It made a painful place on her leg that she has sought medical treatment. She is now on antibiotic. I hope that it will be better soon, Edna.

My husband is still not feeling well since his three-week hospital stay and pneumonia. He has no appetite and feels very bad. I pray that I will find something soon that will taste good to him!
I’m enjoying the cooler weather. From where I sit I can see the oak leaves float lazily to the ground. This year the leave did not get to be pretty colors here. They turned brown and then fell to the ground. That seems to be unusual.
