I enjoyed Sunday lunch at Charles and Gloria Biggs’ home with the Martin family.
Please put Pastor Joe Cerino on your prayer list as he is facing surgery. Also remember his wife Beverly in prayer.
My sister-in-law, Hilda Nittler, enjoyed having her family home for a few days. It was a joy to have her little great-grandson come to visit. He’s been fighting cancer and is a miracle so far. We continue to pray for him and his mom and dad.

urner came to the food ministry and handed out cards that had been made in church at Patrick Springs Pentecostal Holiness Church. It brought smiles to the people. We enjoyed having Caleb and his mom Rachael come be with us.
The Soup Kitchen cooked up a batch of broccoli-potato soup, and my people loved it. One lady told me it was wonderful. There were some delicious corn bread muffins to go with the soup.
Mary Ann arrived safely from Washington, D.C. to spend some time in Patrick Springs.
Connie and Steve Greer had some wildlife visitors lately–a big black snake and a bear damaged their bird feeder.
Claudine Wood turned 96 years and got her wish–a lot of birthday cards and a big party at home. Claudine loves cards and people.
It was nice to have a little down time with Mike and Sue Hall. It’s always good to be with them.
It was good to see new people at Patrick Springs Pentecostal Holiness Church for the Wednesday night meal and service. Bruce and Gina Trent did some beautiful singing. All the new people were most thankful for the meal and food ministry after the service.
People braved the cold and rain for the National Day of Prayer on the Patrick County Court House steps. It was very spiritual.
To the reader that called about the mandarin orange cake, I hope it turned out well. My sister-in-law makes it a lot. It is delicious!
Household hint: saving bread: instead of throwing away the heels from a loaf of bread, toast them and put in the food processor to make bread crumbs. Store in an airtight container so they are handy whenever a recipe calls for fine bread crumbs.

1 lb. ground hamburger
1 1/2 cups cooked macaroni, drained
1 jar pizza sauce
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 package pepperoni, divided
1-2 cups mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown hamburger; drain the grease. Mix together hamburger, macaroni, pizza sauce, onion and pepper. Cut some pepperoni into small pieces and add to other ingredients. Pour into baking casserole pan and cover with pepperoni and cheese. Bake in oven for about 15 to 30 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Food for thought
If you can’t see the bright side, maybe it’s time to polish the dull side.
