Chapel & Mt. Pleasant News
Get well wishes extended to Alfred Loftin
On Father’s Day at First Baptist Church, Mt. Pleasant, the pastor, Dr. Rob Finly and wife Judy’s families came to participate in the Sunday morning service. Eric and Grayce Fleet gave a testimony by sign language regarding the “Influence of a Godly Father,” while Grayce spoke the words. Caitlyn, Eryn, and Cameron read a Bible verse for each letter of the alphabet. Grayce did the sign words to a song. Dr. Rob preached a message. After the message, Dr. Rob and Judy’s new granddaughter, Elizabeth, was dedicated to the Lord.
Alfred Loftin spent several days in Baptist East Hospital last week and is back home. A get-well prayer is sent for him.
First Baptist Church of Mt. Pleasant had 37 children enrolled in Vacation Bible School last week. The commencement was Sunday night.
One day when I was 10 years old, I decided I wanted to make biscuits. After bugging Mama for some time, she gave in. She left the kitchen, letting me have it all by myself. Getting the biscuit tray out, sifting the flour, no self-rising flour back when I grew up), I added salt, soda and milk and went to work mixing it all together. Finally it was ready to get out on the dough board, roll out, and cut into biscuits with a cutter. They were put in a pan then in the oven to cook. I said to myself, “Mama will be proud of me. I know they will be just as good as hers.”
After they were cooked, you should have seen those biscuits. They were as hard as a bone. Do you know why? I forgot the hog lard. Nowadays it’s Crisco. I was so disappointed, throwing them out the kitchen door. Daddy’s old dog had a feast. To top it off, the next morning, the dog was dead. I didn’t live that one down for a long time. My biscuits killed the dog. To my thinking the dog was sick before he ate my biscuits.
