Church members missed when seats are empty


We had a pretty nice weekend. Not much going on, though.

Several attended church at Little Cowan. Several have been sick and we miss them all. I hope they will all get better soon.

Most of us have our special seats at church, and we miss each one when they are empty. It seems like the weeks go by fast and pretty soon another year will be gone.

I guess many are busy already making plans for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have many happy memories of them both over the years. We were all blessed in many ways over the years.

The seasons seem to go by faster, especially when you get older. I am thankful for the many years our family was blessed to be together and hope that we will be together in heaven.

We had a little brother to die with whooping cough and pneumonia when he was four years old. They didn’t have the good medicine back then that we have now. His name was little Charlie Caudill.

Roger and Karen Fields and Vera Caudill went to Pike Lake, Ohio, for a surprise party for the 80th birthday of their brother, Mack Fields, and brother-in-law Albert Holbrook. Also there were Hazel and Pearl and all of Albert’s and Mack’s children and grandchildren. They were very surprised and everyone had a happy time.

In October Linda Lucas and Tammy Banks went to North Carolina for the baptism of Linda’s granddaughters, Katie and Mackensie Callahan. There were 30 people ranging in age from 13 to 70 baptized in the beautiful Yadkin River. They joined the Hilldale Methodist Church in Advance, N.C.

The Cowan Homemakers met at the community center for their Thanksgiving dinner, which was delicious. All the members were present and there were three visitors. Ruth Shackleford was the hostess and also taught us to make a cute little turkey with apples and nuts.

Several from Cowan enjoyed attending the Quicksand Holiday Road Show at the Extension Office where we got ideas for lowcost Christmas decorations, gifts and food.

Virginia Brown, Linda Lucas and Doris Banks went with Johnny Banks to the Cadet Primitive Baptist Church for their Thanksgiving meeting.

Burnice Sybert, Johnny Banks and Richard Sybert were the preachers. They enjoyed a wonderful service, gracious hospitality and a delicious dinner. We were glad to hear that Stella Sybert is improved and home from the nursing home.

Please continue to pray for Don Lucas and his family. He is in selective care at the Bristol Medical Center, room 5020.

I hope that everyone has a nice Thanksgiving with loved ones and friends.

Love and best wishes to all.
