Good morning and believe it or not, this is the last week of January, yes and moving forward to February. I know you feel the same as I do, winter as we have known it has been mild and acceptable to all of us. Of course, some of us complain no matter what but as for me I fell blessed and thankful for the weather thus far. I maybe singing a different tune in February and March, but as for now I am happy. It has been a busy and okay week past. We seem to be doing great around here, just trying to avoid all the bugs out there and hoping we do just that, avoid!! Here’s wishing the same for you.
After church yesterday, Kenneth and I went to Madisonville at the Barnett- Strother Funeral Home to visit with the family of Claudie Conrad. Mr. Conrad passed away on Thursday, Jan. 23 at his home. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, his sister, Mary Brown and all his friends. Keep them in your prayers, thoughts to all that has lost a loved one or friend this past week.
I am so glad to report, Rick and Amy Woosley have returned home safely from a relaxing cruise. We are all glad they had a good time but so glad they are back, I know Lowe’s has missed Rick, and it is beyond words how much we missed Amy. Hope you are both rested up and ready to pick up the work load we have left for you. HaHa! Glad your back.
Great day at Sacramento Baptist and we were all rejoicing in being a witness to the Baptizing of Brother Wendell and Becky’s two grandsons. It was a powerful thing to watch, Grandfather baptizing Grandsons. If you missed this, you missed a great happening in our church, it was also great to have the Wood family in our church. Following was a great soup meal and special round the table service.
