Here it is September and I didn’t see much of August. It’s time for yard sale mania again and big flea markets. Where did time go?
Mary Ann came down from D.C. and has been quite busy these days—seems there is always something to do.
The prayer time on Sunday night was very good and so spiritual. I wish more people had come out to the Patrick Springs Pentecostal Church to the prayer services. You will get a blessing. Thanks to neighbor Larry for taking me.
It looks like almost all of my hummingbirds are getting gone. It makes me sad and I will miss them a lot. I guess the bees will miss the nectar.
The other Monday at the Patrick Springs Pentecostal Holiness Church Food Ministry we got a big surprise when truck loads of corn began to arrive on soon after we opened. There were six truck loads and our church took two loads: one for the Food Ministry and one for other people to come get from out front at the church. A load went to Rt. 58 near the post office, and later to Cotton Mill and Cedar Square. We sent a load to Mt. Nebo Church. One was at the soup kitchen, and the sheriff’s office got some for their kitchen.
Thanks to Van Rowe and his crew for picking up all this corn and delivering it, and for all the hard work they did. It was a blessing and God really did bless a lot of people that day. (I hear more corn is coming!)
I was so sorry to hear of the death of Rick Cassell. My love and heartfelt sympathy go to the family. He told me once that he always read The Enterprise and The Party Line.
Put Dorothy Vipperman on your prayer list. She’s had surgery on her hand. Thank you for being so nice to me, and for the surprises. God bless!
Richard Rogers had the best thought on WHEO Radio on August 31. We spend far too much time trying to please man and not pleasing God. Isn’t that true?
Keep Jimmy Willard in your prayers as he travels to the latest disasters with loads of supplies. He really has a passion for doing this.
Household hint: for the microwave to melt marshmallow cream. Half of a seven-ounce jar will melt in 35-40 seconds on high. Stir to blend.

Food for thought:
“What I’m able to do, God wants me to do.” To discover God’s will for your life, you should examine what you are good at doing. God has a place for you in his church.
