Hello everyone! Hoping everyone had a great week.
I stopped in Blackey on Saturday for a few minutes at the festival and saw Rose Ballard, a correspondent for The Mountain Eagle from Ohio.
Birthdays this week are Pat King and Nathan Allen Lee, Oct. 16; Letha Fields Dollarhyde, Oct. 19; and Anne Adams on Oct. 21. Hope all of you enjoy your day.
In memorial this week is Tommy Tolliver, who would have had a birthday Oct. 19. Still missed by family and friends.
Good to see Phyllis Caudill (who now lives in Tennessee) coming to church with her daughter and son-in-law, Frankie and Daniel Martin.
Pastor Frank and Jeanne Adams went to South Carolina over the weekend to be with their son B.J. Adams and family. Hope they enjoyed their trip.
King’s Chapel sure does miss them when they are gone, but God provides, and we still had good services. Thanks to all who helped out.
Please keep all the families that have lost their loved ones and those in the Carolinas with all the flooding in prayer, and please pray for our nation.
Never seen a time such as this.
Pray for all the sick, shutins, those in hospitals and nursing home, and drug and alcohol addicts, our preachers and churches and our families, neighbors and friends.
Mike is enjoying living in Indiana and is doing pretty well. I miss him, but am glad that he is happy and content.
My son Chad and his family are all doing well. Looking forward to being a greatgrandma in February. Just pray that all goes well.
My friends Bobby Watts and Shannon Reeves from Burlington will be moving here soon. Hope everyone will welcome them. Bobby has roots near Blackey, and always wanted to move from the city. He loves mountain people and the culture, and wants to learn how to live “off the grid.”
Shannon is formerly of Batesville, Ind. She is a sweetheart and wants to live in the mountains. They are both in their 40s and are like family to me. There’s nothing like our beautiful mountains, our mountain people and culture.
People want a taste of Heaven, and my mamma always said that this was God’s country, and before you go to Heaven you have to come here.
So treat Bobby and Shannon well, and let them see why we love it here.
Well folks, I’m going to go for now. Have a great week, enjoy the nice weather, attend the church of your choice, and may God bless.
