Potts Camp News
Jimmy and Martha Hollingsworth celebrate 55th wedding anniversary recently
We enjoyed reading last week’s article by Mary Minor about the Potts Camp reunion this year.
It has been many years since I graduated at Potts Camp High School in 1936. I’ll never forget my classmates.
Only a few days after the “fun day” at the First Baptist Church on Saturday, June 18, and the little train that was there for the children to ride, a sad thing happened. A funeral was held at the same church later. Willie Virginia Hunsucker died June 17, 2011. She was 75 years old. We send our deepest love and sympathy to her family. We all loved her.
On Thursday, June 23, my older son Jimmy and wife Martha visited me. They are celebrating their 55th wedding anniversary this week.
Get well to Frances Jamison of the Bethlehem Community, who had recent heart surgery in Oxford. Pray for her!
On Thursday, Temperance Hill Baptist Church singers visit nursing homes and sing for the patients. I always enjoyed visiting there with Rev. and Mrs. Jim Smith. During younger days, he would dress like Santa Claus and his wife would take his picture with them and pin it on their shoulder for a gift. Those were happy days!
Get well to all the sick people, including Henry Tutor and Charles Henderson.
Only God Knows
I do not know what lies ahead. The way I cannot see. But one stands near to be my guide. With God things don’t just happen. Everything by Him is planned. So as I face tomorrow with its problems great and small, I’ll trust the God of Miracles and give to Him my all.
When everything is hopeless and life is hard to bear, just find a quiet corner and say a special little prayer. Ask God to give you strength, to see you through the day, for He alone can help you, He can pave the way. Believe in Him and trust Him, let Him be your guide. Miraculous things can happen when He is by your side. Once your cross is lifted and you find that you can cope, be sure to thank almighty God for giving you new hope.
Happy July 4 to everyone!
Many of you may remember the old Dixie Theater in our town after the war ended. It was a Greer and Greer store first, before they bought out the two-story store from Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Laws next door, and it was used for making war uniforms during World War II.
A man from Memphis, Tenn., brought some of the newest movies here and showed them on a huge colored screen on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. I went to see “Gone with the Wind” there on Sunday afternoon while my husband L.D. kept our youngest children. I was late getting there and as I looked for a seat in the dark, they called my name. I had won the door prize, $10. That made me happy.
A teenage boy, Charles Burris, ran the projector and Willa Floyd sold the tickets. Charles was about 16; he bought a motorcycle with some of his money. One Sunday afternoon, Charles passed our house really fast on his motorcycle. My late husband remarked, “He is going to get killed.” Sure enough, about one mile out of town, a car was turning into a road going to their home and Charles ran into them. He was killed instantly.
It was a sad funeral. Charles was the age of my brother and sister, Ann and Lindy. He had one brother, Edward. Mr. and Mrs. Burris were wonderful friends. I’ll never forget it.
Rev. Lyons brings inspiring message to Greenfield
God Reacts to Disobedience
But the Israelites broke faith in regard to the devoted things: Achan, son of Carmi, son of Zabdi, son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took some of the devoted things; and the anger of the Lord burned against the Israelites. Joshua 7:1.
