Greetings from The Antioch Community.
I’m sorry that I missed writing for the last two weeks. but I was sick and had to see several different doctors and having tests.
Hope all you mothers had a Happy Mothers Day on Sunday.
I sure had a good day. My son came and got me and took me down to their house and then Betty drove us to Kellie and Chase Nash’s home for Mothers Day. Others there besides us were Michele, Eric, Erika, Matt and Shaun (our precious great grandson). He walks all the time. I don’t know why their little legs don’t give out. He is 18 months old. I also was glad to see Bro. and Mrs. Butch Nash there.
We attended the pastor/staff appreciation dinner at Southern Baptist Church. A large crowd attended. Elkton Baptist got the plaque for having the most members present. They had 21 present. We had 12 from Antioch. They were Bro. Clardy, his wife Avanell, Melba Gibbs, Marcie Patterson, our music director J.V. Jenkins, Gail, Jeanie, Tammy Sears, Mike, Tammy and Oliva Sisco and myself. We enjoyed the program with two girls singing and playing their ukulele, the meal and the sweet fellowship.
Our Homecoming at Antioch is almost here. It is always on the fourth Sunday in May, which will be the 22nd. “Breaking Grounds” will be singing for us during the Sunday School hour, which will be 10 to 11 o’clock. Then the worship hour, followed by the meal. Everyone is welcome. The church will furnish the meat and bread. The rest is pot luck.
Just had a call from Joyce McIntosh and she said her mom was in the Medical Center with blood clots in her leg. Remember her and all the sick in your prayers.
Our cousin, Omanel Robertson passed away last Wednesday in Florida. She will be brought back to Greenville for the funeral and burial. I sure will miss her calling me. She was 93 years young.
Myrtle Pogue is back home with someone staying with her. I’m sure she would appreciate a call or visit.
Dolores Harris and Vanessa Price enjoyed going to the Cracker Barrel in Bowling Green on Mothers Day to eat with their family.
A very nice lady, “Louise Holloman” from Russellville brought a bag full and another one half full of plastic tops for our church. We are saving them to get a bench for our church. Everyone at church was so excited. Thank you again and to each one who is helping us out. Konnie Smith brought me some and the Ladies Club at TOPS Club are saving them for me. TOPS stands for “Take Off Pounds Sensibly.” If you need to lose a few pounds, you are welcome to come and join us. We meet at Logan Memorial Hospital each Wednesday morning from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
If anyone who reads this would like to help our church to save plastic tops, I will give you a list of what they accept. Medicine bottle tops, flip top caps, spray paint caps, deodorant caps, yogurt lids, peanut butter jar lids, drink bottle caps, toothpaste tube caps, cottage cheese lids, cream cheese lids, ice cream bucket lids, milk job caps, hair spray caps, ointment tube caps, butter container lids, mayonnaise jar lids and and medicine bottle nolabels. Quite a list. We will appreciate anyone helping us out. Don’t cost you anything as you have already bought the product.
Sheila and Jimmy Christian had their family for Mother’s Day Dinner on Sunday night.
I enjoyed a call from “Sherry Harris,” a cousin from Louisville to with me a happy Mothers Days.
I got a very sweet Mother’s Day card from my good friend, Jeanie Gregory. I love to get cards.
Jimmy White was to have surgery today in Nashville. So remember him in your prayers.
Thank you for your kindness,
For your warm and special thought
There is just no way to measure
All the pleasure that you brought.
Have a good week.
