I have been blessed to be out driving and getting a few things done out and about and at home.

Thanks to Frances and Marie for the two nice gift certificates to Elizabeth’s Pizza. I will sure enjoy them as it’s my favorite place to eat. And every day I drive to Mrs. Plaster’s house and turn around. It makes me feel better.

The Food Ministry at church is going great. It was blessed with a load of nice apples and lots of milk.

Thanks to my sister-in-law, HIlda Nittler, for checking on me. I’m glad she is doing better also.

I got a package from Mary Ann up in D.C., and it was full of things that I can enjoy doing at night. I won’t need any puzzle books for a while. Her calls are the highlight of my day.

So sorry to hear about the death of Mr. Junior Hooker, a well known musician and a Christian with a great testimony. My love and heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family in this time of sorrow.

Things are really different with the spread of the Corona Virus. So many things had to be cancelled. WHEO Radio did a wonderful job of letting the community know what was going on. I did a lot of reading and Mary Ann sent me a lot of puzzle books at a good time. Mostly I read at night. Also thanks to Gloria for sending me a delicious plate of food.

I was hoping to come to The Enterprise office this time, but due to the virus I couldn’t. Hope things will get better soon.

Until next time, stay safe and God bless everyone.


Food for Thought- Thank you for your Provision, Lord. May we learn to hold everything loosely, knowing its only borrowed. We should not be concerned about accumulating too little, but too much.
