Another week has gone by. The weather has been much better or at least cooler some days. Not a lot of stuff happening this week. I try to write something even it isn’t very much.
My granddaughter Rebecca and her friend Lexi Ryle left Sunday morning. Rebecca’s mother Diana, grandmother Donna, pa Jim, great-aunt Joe and sister Michaela were down for the weekend from Greensburg, Ind. They did some sightseeing and took some pictures. They thought it was really pretty down here. They saw some deer and they kept hoping to see bears, but they never saw any. They could have done more sightseeing if it hadn’t rained. Becca took a turtle home with her. It will turn into a Hoosier.
I heard Letha Ann Fields and her family moved back here from Tennessee. Haven’t seen them yet, but welcome home, neighbors.
So many people ask why people move back here after being away so many years. I tell them it is quiet and peaceful and more laid back. Southern hospitality goes a long way and it is pretty in the mountains.
My mother always said, “This was God’s country.” She said you had to come here before you went to heaven. I miss her so much. I could always call her and talk to her when I was depressed or needed to know something and it always helped. It is hard to find a friend as close as your mother. So those of you who still have your parents, do not take them for granted and be sure and tell them you love them.
Please keep my husband and me in your prayers. At this time we do not have a home church to go to due to some things beyond our control. Pray that the Lord will lead us and guide us in the right direction. We sincerely need your prayers.
Also this week, remember these people in your prayers: Thomas Wolfe, Irene and Eugene Day, Elijah Sandlin, Tommy and Janice Tolliver, Sonya Money, Delmar Fields, Roger Fields, Mary Lou Fields, Carol and Kendall Ison, Hazel and Earl Rayburn, Michael Rayburn, Audrey and Charles Hammonds, Agnes and Bill Maggard, Odessa and Reuben Lewis, Anna Lou Maggard-Combs, all my friends, neighbors, and family.
Also, I forgot to mention Ellen King. She will have a birthday on August 5.
I saw R.C. and Frances Day at Dairy Queen the other day and he said his sister Jenny has been in the hospital. Also remember all of them in your prayers.
I heard that Barry Tiller got killed in a car accident a week or two ago. Sure hated to hear that. Our prayers go out to his family. He was really a nice man and came from a very good family. I heard him preach a time or two and he really was good. It will be a great loss.
Well folks, I need to go and drop this off and get something to eat. Until next time, may God bless each and every one of you.
