Today is Valentine’s Day, a day for red roses for those you love. I got a beautiful bouquet of red roses from Barry and that he never forgets since his daddy is gone. They are so pretty and I thank him so much.
I got more flowers from the Lewisburg Masonic Lodge which I appreciated so very much. In all the years since Joe has been gone, the Lodge has never failed to remember me and the other widows as well. Many thanks to the members.
We received word last night of the death of one of Barry’s cousins, Margie Ann Martion of Louisville. For several weeks now, she has been in so much pain that death came as a relief. She was a wonderful God-caring Christian and heaven is a better place since she is there. To her husband Kenny, children, mother and siblings, we extend our deepest love and sympathy.
Barry came home from South Carolina on Saturday where he and Charlie had been for a week. The weather was rather cold down there and I’m sure that was not too good. But as always they find things to do and enjoy the company.
Many thanks to Maritza Grant for taking me to the beauty shoppe and to get groceries. She is always willing to go the extra mile to help those in need. Since Ilene Baugh is not driving, she also get the benefit of Maritza’s help.
To feel sorry for the needy is not the mark of a Christian – to help them is.
I would like to thank those who sent me Valentine’s greetings. I appreciate these very much.
We send out best wishes to Mattie Barnes. I have not been able to go and see her yet, but soon I hope to. We pray for her and hope she will be better. I guess we need to remember Jack too, since he is the chief these days. Hang in there buddy, you make get to like being a “housewife.”
I know we have a lot of sickness and shut-ins, and many I do not know about, but we remember them in prayer.
Saturday night was Ladies Night Out at the Baptist Church Fellowship Hall. This is always a fun night and the ladies do appreciate the special attention they receive.
News is not much this week and if you have news, I would appreciate you letting me know. I can’t write what I don’t know.
What people fail to learn from sermons, they later learn from experience.
Have a good week and love your neighbor.
