Well, hello to all. Hope everyone is keeping warm. It sure has been cold. We woke up to a very chilly Thursday morning and had a group of small Christmas carolers at our door. It really warmed our hearts. The Cowan Head Start students came to our house by bus. They sang “Jingle Bells” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”. They were accompanied by Atha Fields, Dorothy Jean Miles, and Stephanie (Sumpter) Russell.
They were very brave to come out at such a cold time, but it doesn’t seem to bother youngsters. Hopefully they will get their Christmas wish and have a very good Christmas.
My sister Kathy and husband Eddie Wolfe have been stranded at home with van troubles and financial woes. Pray for them that they will get straightened up.
This time of year seems so hard for everyone. With times the way they are it’s hard to give what you want to, but it’s the thought that counts, not the price of the gift. So many people forget the real reason for the season (Jesus). I had rather give than to receive and have God’s blessings on my life than to receive gifts.
All my family seem to be doing well this week. Hopefully they will stay that way.
Hope everyone has a good week. Be good to one another. Call someone and tell them you love them. Remember the shut-ins. They are unable to get out so give them a call and see how they are and see if there is something you can do for them. A little bit of kindness goes a long way and to some people it means everything to them that someone actually thinks of them and not about the gift they will get from them.
Love all of you. Until next week, this is “mouth of the South” on Big Cowan.
