Greetings from The Antioch Community.
Sure hope everyone had a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
We had a scare in our family on Friday. My son, Terry (Six), who lives in Nashville was going home from work Friday evening when this guy crossed the center line and plowed into Terry. They took him by ambulance to Vanderbilt Hospital and checked him out. Thank God he wasn’t hurt. He is just real sore all over. Terry said it turned the truck around and he thought it was going to turn over, but it didn’t. It tore the truck up. He was driving a 1989. He was glad that he wasn’t driving his good truck.
My great-great grandson turned one year old on Nov. 18th. They had his Birthday Party Saturday at their home. They have a beautiful home.
I went with Betty and Marion to Bowling Green to his party. He got a lot of clothes, toys and money. His grandparents gave him a bank, so his money went into his bank.
But the cutest thing was watching him eat his birthday cake. He had cake icing all over his hands and face. They had pizza and potato salad and cake and ice cream to eat. We had a good time.
Our seniors went to Shady Cliff Restaurant on Friday and ate lunch. We had 12 to go. Melba Gibbs drove the church bus. She had Bradley, her 1 year old great grandson with her. Juanita Key, Marcie Patterson, Avanell Clardy, Dolores Harris, Joyce McIntosh, JoAnn Henderson, Patty Campbell, Sheila and Harry Epley and myself. We enjoyed the food and Melba came back on the Duncan Ridge Road and we enjoyed the trip. Some of us hadn’t been over that road in years. Got to see Lois Earl and Faye Brown’s new home. It sure was beautiful.
Needless to say, we had a good day.
We had a good day at church Sunday. After the worship hour, Bro. Clardy baptized five young people. There was two girls and three boys. We had several visitors there to see their family members baptized. Also, J.V. Jenkins was back after being gone n a mission trip to Mexico. So he told us of some of their experiences while there. He said it sure made you appreciate living in the United States, and especially in Kentucky. His sister Wanda was with him and Bro. Jerry.
The members of the choir went back to church at 4 p.m. to practice on our Christmas program. We had business meeting that night, so we had a busy day.
We are glad to report that Myrtle Pogue is back at home after being in the hospital and rehab.
Shane Zekucia, from Iowa, is visiting his grandparents, Don and Rosie Yarnell in Lewisburg. He also attended church at Antioch on Sunday morning with Don.
What you are is God’s gift to you. What you become is your gift to God.
Have a good week.
