Mountain Top Party Line

This sign is in a country stored down Moorehead City, N.C. where my stepson Connell lives. Right now with all that’s happening with the virus, I think we all need some ice cream and chocolate, don’t you?

It was church service on the parking lot. A beautiful day, and a nice service. As usual, Sam the Church Dog was greeting the people. We all love Sam.

Sue Hall called Friday night and said Mike was going to sing for me. Then Mike said what do you want me to sing? Then I said, you pick one. So he sang I’ve got so much to be thankful for. I can walk with a cane and can drive around here. That’s a blessing. When the Southern Prophets sang, Denny always sang that song at the end of service.

Thanks to Rhonda from the Jesus House for checking on me. Hello to Jerry and Andy. She said a lot of clothes are coming to the drop off box.

One good thing in all the things happening, gas is cheap. One day long ago, gas was rationed. One time in Stuart, when gas was rationed there came a day when you could fill up. The boss (Mr. Davis) let us leave work and go get gas. Those were the good old days.

I appreciate all the people that are out working to restore power. The phone service was out here, but we kept power. The sun came out and it was a beautiful sunny day. Sunshine in these times is like a dose of medicine. Take time to enjoy.

Beverly Woody called and that was good conversation. Always good to hear from her and Mark.

Thanks to Keith Medley for getting my trash. I appreciate it. Take care, God bless.


Food for thought- Security is knowing that God is in control and I am not. Deuteronomy 4:39 says- So acknowledge today and take to heart that the Lord is God in Heaven alone and on the earth beneath and there is no other. Amen
