Life just isn’t the same without Marilyn, but I will always treasure the good times going with the Southern Prophets for so many years, and the time we shared talking and going places. There are a lot of good memories.
It was good to get to deliver soup again after the snow. I surely did miss everyone and was so glad to see them. I enjoyed lunch with Mrs. Vera Plaster (age 100) when I went to her house.
Also, I enjoyed lunch at Charles and Gloria Biggs’ home on Sunday. She always has a feast and some beautiful desserts.
We finally got back on track Wednesday night at Patrick Springs Pentecostal Holiness Church with the service and meal. The men cooked a great meal of pintos, corn bread, the best mashed potatoes ever, and ham. Wow! What a feast! Thank you!
Mary Ann gave me some good books for winter reading and snow days and I thank her for that. Even if she’s from Washington, D.C., she enjoys reading The Enterprise.
I was so sorry to hear of the death of Elsie Rakes Pendleton. She was a very sweet and humble lady. My love and heartfelt sympathy go to the family in this time of sorrow.
“Sandy Man” is being taken care of and has a lot of love, but he misses Denny and Marilyn so much.
This was in the church bulletin at Patrick Springs Pentecostal Holiness Church on August 16, 2015. I think it’s so good.
Recipe for a
If all the sleeping people would wake up—
If all the lukewarm people would fire up—
If all the dishonest folk would ‘fess up—
If all the disgruntled folk would sweeten up—
If all the discouraged folk would cheer up-
If all the depressed people will look up—
If all the estranged people will make up—
If all the gossipers will shut up (I say amen to this)—
If all the dry bones will shake up—
If all the soldiers will stand up—
If all the church members will pray up
to honor him who was lifted up
If we could do all these things, what a great community we would have, and the church would grow.
