June 6, “The Little People” came to Carey Chapel Baptist Church to visit the Keenagers. Twenty-six of them enjoyed a covered dish luncheon, with six visitors. They were entertained with two teens from the Grays Creek Baptist Church in Hernando. Blake Walker sang and played the keyboard. He sang “Breathe” and “Above All.” Emily Boyd, Nancy Boyd’s granddaughter, sang “In Christ Alone.” Their music director, Benny Morton, came with them. He and Emily sang and performed sign language to “Agnus Dei” while Blake played the keyboard. Then Bro. Benny and Blake played “Victory in Jesus” as a duet on the keyboard. Blake did a beautiful job on an instrumental “Near the Cross.” People kept wondering where the Little People were, because these six visitors weren’t small. Bro. Benny’s sister, Sheila, and niece, Tricia, and Missy Boyd, were there to help with the rest of the program. Then the scene changed and the Keenagers were entertained with “Little People” as promised -- puppets. It was a tremendous program. Everyone had a wonderful time. Even Bro. O.E. learned some new words for his sermons from the professor in the puppet show. The Keenagers next meeting will be Thursday, July 6, at 11 a.m. at Carey Chapel Baptist Church. It will be a fancy box lunch auction. Call 851-7588 for details. Come enjoy lunch with us.
Mama had an old hen that wanted to sit on eggs and raise a family. But Mama had other ideas. She would go by several times a day to grab and throw her off the nest. She did this for a week or two. One day, thinking to myself, “I’ll break her from sitting,” I grabbed that hen and ran to a nearby pond to throw her in. The hen swam across to the other side. I ran, picking her up, threw her back. I did this several times. The last time she didn’t swim out. I had to wade out and get her. She had drowned. What was I going to tell Mama? There was a sand ditch nearby, so I took the old hen and buried her in the sand. A few days went by.
I heard Mama say, “Something must have caught and ate that old setting hen.” My mouth was closed on the subject. Years went by before I told what happened to the hen. I said I would break her so I did. But I didn’t mean to drown her.
Remember, I was just a kid and wasn’t thinking.
