What a beautiful day last Sunday was. ‘This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.’
I am so glad to be feeling good for a change. I had been sick with a cold and sinus problems for over a month. I’d just got to feeling better then wham! I got the stomach virus and kept it five days. I was only able to keep Sprite One and chicken noodle soup down for a couple of days. I slowly got my appetite back, thank God. I missed good food.
Well, enough for my ailments. I hope all of you are well.
Audrey Hammonds went through her nasal surgery okay. She won’t have her voice back completely for two months. It sounds like she is in a barrel; it doesn’t sound like her. They removed two polyps from close to her voice box and told her not to be around smoking or second-hand smoke because they could return. Big Cowan
Charles Hammonds went to the doctor also, and his balance is completely off, permanently. They are both in need of prayer.
Mary Ann Maggard is back in the hospital with bronchitis. Carla, Tony, Destiny Maggard and Stacy, Rick and Addie Sue Dobson, all have been sick with a stomach virus.
Kathy and Eddie Wolfe have it now, and I think James and Mike are both getting it. Everyone can keep it! I don’t want it again.
Last week when I mentioned Tammy Trent having a birthday, I failed to mention that she also has a son, Willie Hanson. We hope she has a great birthday on the 20th.
April 17 was Wayne Fields’s 46th birthday, and his daughter Deidra and Sammy Gibson’s baby shower was held. He’s getting old, he will be a grandpa in June.
Dorothy Jean and Glen Miles have a new greatgrandson, Braden, born to their grandson Neil and his wife Karina Miles, with a big sister, Jaelyn. Neil is stationed in Camp Lejune, N.C., and his mom and dad Gary and Brenda Miles live in Georgetown. They should be in for a visit this week. I hope all have a good time. I know Glen and Dorothy will.
Eugene Day will be 85 years young April 29. We wish him a very happy birthday and many more, and we love him very much.
I failed to mention that Benton Day had died from cancer a few weeks ago. He leaves behind brothers Eugene Day and Elmo Day, and sisters Louise Sturgill and Georgette Sims. He was a son of the late France and Rachel Day. Our sympathy goes out to all of his family.
I think he lived in Colorado and had been in bad health for a long time. Before his passing, he wrote all of his brothers and sisters a letter to say his good-byes.
Paige Brown got a new pony. She named it Princess, and she really likes it. I think it’s a Shetland pony or a miniature.
My niece Pam Fields lives in Arkansas and had tornado damage. It uprooted two real large trees about six to eight feet in diameter. They were still without electricity and were camping out in their house. They asked me if I wanted to camp out, and I told her I would pass.
She is safe, and that’s the main thing. Her son Charles Demery lives a few miles from her and a window in his apartment got blown out, but he is fine. Things can be replaced, people can’t.
It seems like there are storms and destruction everywhere, but the Bible says, “Look to the skies for your redemption draweth nigh.”
Well, I’ve got to go get this news dropped off. I hope all have a good week.
Late happy birthday wishes to Lorraine Miles Stewart, April 19, from your husband, Guy, and from all of us.
I just found out that Pastor Frank Adams from King’s Chapel has a brother who has died. The arrangements are still pending. Our sympathy goes out to his family.
Go to the church of your choice. Be good to one another. Pray for one another. Apologize to someone if you have hurt their feelings.
Until next time.
