Fondest memories of growing up
Recent guests of Andy and Connie Work were his son, Timothy and wife and three-year-old daughter from Alabama. They stayed a week. Another granddaughter, Anna, came to play with her cousin.
Steve Price had a serious operation in New Albany recently. Pray for him.
A new building at Mary Reid School is wonderful!
“If my people which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
Take control of my thoughts today; let my mind be stayed on thee, that I may know the perfect peace, thou O Lord hath promised me. Take control of my words today; may they tell of thy great love, and may the story of thy grace turn some heart to thee. Take control of my life today, let thy will be also mine. That in each thought and word and deed I shall be forever thine.
A loving fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ is never accidental. It is always the result of prayer, dedication and love.
Do you love Christ enough to love people exactly as they are, without waiting for them to change? Just as Jesus continues to forgive, cleanse and love us, so we need to be merciful and forgiving and loving to those who sin against or hurt us!
Prayer list: JoAnn Potts of Olive Branch (my sister-in-law), Mary and Henry Jarrett, Jimmie Hart, Charles Henderson, Henry Tutor, Betty Rose Jones, Diane Clayton, Sank Owen, Steve Price.
Some of my fondest memories are growing up in my home town! Many times our parents would take us fishing in the old creek across the railroad tracks. Daddy rented a pasture behind St. Mary Methodist Church to keep our cow in during the day. The boys had a large swimming hole in the creek. I was happy to catch a fish.
Sometimes the hobos camped out around the creek. Those were depression years, so Mother cooked an extra pan of biscuits for them when they came knocking on our door.
Our favorite cow was named Aggie. We named her for Mr. Todd’s wife, Agnes of Hickory Flat, who had reddish hair. You couldn’t buy milk at the stores then.
One day, my brothers went after the cow. When they opened the gate, Aggie started running to get to her calf in the barn at home. A train came around the corner and killed our favorite cow. We all cried.
