I went downstairs last week and found an old box of memorabilia.I had to – after watching an emotional Sylvester Croom before and after the recent Liberty Bowl in Memphis.
Close to Nowhere
I admit it. I have too many new gadgets and my brain has fried.
I never thought the words “too many new gadgets” could ever come from me, but I need to face it. I’m on gadget overload.
The Preacher’s Corner
How do you tell Beulah something’s wrong with recipe?
You must have known that eventually the preacher would get around to sharing recipes! Every church worth the name has wonderful cooks, and while congregations often publish recipes, the details of recipes are not necessarily the minister’s province.
Well deserved recognition:
I would like to give recognition to a man who serves his community well. His name is Gary Graves. He is a first responder with the Mt. Pleasant Fire Department.
This man has a business to run that keeps him extremely busy, but he doesn’t hesitate to first respond at all hours of the day or night, to assist EMS and the fire department.
There have been several occasions that this man and his wife have stopped what they were doing and brought food to scenes where other fire departments where fighting fires. They set up tables and coolers, loaded down with food and drink for the firefighters and EMS workers.
Just as quickly as they bring these items they leave without recognition – humble, just want-ing to do something to help.
Every holiday they come by the 911 ambulance service offices and bring food and other holiday treats. Again not wanting or seeking recognition – just wanting to say thank you to all the medics for being there instead of with their families.
This past Thanksgiving and this Christmas were no exception.
I know personally of the good deeds he does for the elderly and disabled – all without recognition.
Our community could use a few more men and women like Gary Graves and his family.
Thank you, Gary, for all you and Dixie do for us. God bless.
