I know all of you are probably just as happy as I am with this beautiful weather we are having. Of course, there seems to always be outside work that needs to get done. Just remember the exercise is really good for us but don't over do it.
Sister Fay and I were out at Glenda's store (DeKalb Market) on Friday and enjoyed a fabulous fish meal. Glenda's grandson, Chris Hood, joined us and it was certainly a grand time for all of us. We got to see our girls Spider and Deb, also, while we were there.
Mowing around Aubrey's shop yesterday by the road and there was this big Dodge pickup truck swerving back and forth coming right toward me and I thought my mighty John Deere would be no match for the truck. That snake I told you about didn't have a chance against my mower but I was beginning to think just how that snake must have felt before its demise. Thoughts of just how horrendous this crash was going to be and if I would survive it going through my head. As it turned out, there was no collision as this was a friend of mine (a truck driver, Rick Hubler) who lives just down the road.
So good to tell you Clyde and Bobby are doing better. They both were very lucky. Do keep them in prayer.
Smithville Church of God Women's Ministries will be having their annual yard sale on May 15th, 16, and 17th in the fellowship hall behind the church. There will be a lot of items to choose from so make plans to come out and have a fun time while you are there.
Trying to get all my cannas set out today with the weather being so nice. I just like a few and I will finish the project tomorrow. Setting out the dahlias will come next toward the end of the week. Flowers add so much beauty to a place. I take back after my mom loving flowers. She sure had the green thumb when it came to having beautiful flowers. Quite a wonderful, loving, and devoted mother she was as everyone around knows. No one could rate with the kind of mother we had. Her life filled with a lot of hardships but she overcame them all because she was living for Jesus. When we leave this world, we take nothing with us that we have acquired here. All that people will remember about us will be was we honest or dishonest in how we obtained what we had. For sure, there will be a day of accountability for us all. The best feeling in the world though is when you lay your head down on your pillow at night and you know you have done right by your fellow man.
Was talking with my sister the other day about when we were at home and in the tobacco patch getting those big fat disgusting tobacco worms off the leaves and putting them in a jar. She didn't mind doing this but I certainly did. The only good thing that came out of this was the biggest worms I would put in those jars in the alcohol and water in my laboratory when I was such a brilliant scientist in my pretend world back then. So much better there than it was in that tobacco patch any day of the week.
Some people we need to keep in prayer: Jeff Brown, Edith Miller, Chloe Evelyn Bogle, Diane Evans, Carlon and Mai Nell Melton, Steve Stanley and family, and also Janice Bratcher and family.
