Air conditioners are in use in North Carolina

North Carolina

We have a beautiful, warm November day here in the Carolinas. We have the air conditioners going. There are lots of Christmas trees and decorations in Wal-Mart.

We have been busy with activities. On Nov. 3, the Church of Christ had a fish fry for the community. They had spots and all the trimmings, very, very good. I saw a lot of people I had not seen in years. I met a woman from California that has a birthday on Feb. 19, same as mine. Adam Bowling had his karate team there, and the children had hayrides. It was a nice day.

Then we went on to the J.C. Building for the Harvest Fest for Pastor Charles Drew of the Apostolic Church. We had a real nice time there as always. There were lots and lots of activities and food and my favorite, the Chinese auction.

We had a good fellowship meeting at the Lighthouse Church here in Bolivia with Pastor Charles Drew. Those attending from out of town were as follows: Bro. Barnhill; Bro. Carl Johnson, Sanford, N.C.; Bro. Crosby, Siler City; and Bro. Bentley, Kenly, N.C. The special guest speaker was longtime friend Bro. Gueyton from Whiteville, N.C. These are all Apostolic ministers. We enjoyed the special singing and the conclusion was soup and sandwiches at Winnabow Park.

As persons of the week, I choose Pastor Barnhill and wife from Laurenburg, N.C. I met this nice couple several years ago at his home church.

Our trees are turning and are so pretty. We never have the beauty of the mountains, though. We have had snow but very seldom here on the coast. We may see some next month in Sanford.

Emma Engle, I missed your column, and, Rose, you don’t have to like pets as much as I do to be friends. My friend, Betty, next door, doesn’t like animals, dogs and cats at all. To each their own. Some people don’t like children.

I put up a Christmas tree for my little dogs. Gracie loves it, I have her toy hanging low and she checks it often during the day.

We here in North Carolina are making Christmas boxes for our servicemen and that is so wonderful. It reminds me of this boy who said he was tired of his parents giving him too many instructions and he was going to join the Army so he wouldn’t have a boss. We all have a supreme boss, Jesus. His payment is beyond measure.

To my brother, Vernon, good morning and good night. Connie, too.
