The Lord’s Acre Sale went on in spite of a dreary, rainy day, but spirits were high and people enjoyed shopping, eating and visiting.
There was gospel singing, an auction with lots of items, plus a very nice car donated by Barry Nelson.
The food was delicious and there were many different things to try. Concord United Methodist Church members had their famous homemade ice cream. It’s a tradition that Philip Plasters treats me to an orange-pineapple ice cream: my very favorite kind.
If you want to see a real fall scene, just drive by All Seasons in Patrick Springs.
I saw Ira Jane Hubbard the other day. She had enjoyed going to the book sale at the Patrick County Library.
Guess I’m still celebrating my birthday as I keep getting cards and things. Thanks and God bless.
Remember all the people affected by the storms and floods in your prayers. It is so sad, isn’t it?
Thanks to the person who left me a beautiful angel at church. Someone must know that I love angels and saw a real guardian angel once in my life.
We had an awesome prayer time at church October 11. It lasted two hours and we never got to the scripture reading. There were many things being revealed in visions.
Connie Greer and Harlie the dog came by and brought me a bowl of vegetable beef soup. It was delicious. As I always say, you can’t beat my neighbors. They are the best.
I was so thankful to go to the revival at New Beginnings Baptist Church. Pastor Mark Wright is on my favorite person list. Pastor Rayton Puckett was the guest speaker. He is so spiritual. We listened to him on the radio station many times.
Neighbors Larry and Teresa Martin are trying to get in a bit of camping and horseback riding before winter.
As I was finishing my Party Line, I learned of a very special friend’s death. Frances Bowman has been my friend for many years. She was a great cook at Super 58 and over the years brought me meals at Greene’s Store. My love and prayers go to the family.

Food for thought
All around us are people who could be wonderfully affected by our help and kindness. God wants us to have an impact on them by loving them as he loves them. The most meaningful work we can do is to care for the people around you and show love and kindness.
