Mountain Top Party Line

Pictured- a scene from The Chapel at Meadows of Dan. In these times we are having now, that’s a good verse to remember.

It was church service on the parking lot and a good crowd. Sam was up greeting the people as usual.

The Simmons family was up at their place on Old Mill Road and getting the limbs that fell in the wind storm we had. Mary and the granddaughter walked out to see me and brought me a coconut pie (and it is so delicious) and some fresh homegrown eggs. Enjoyed their visit.

Gas is so cheap, and that helps a lot doesn’t it? I went to Circle K after church on Sunday to get gas and a chicken biscuit. Then Ron Clerk from church came and paid all of my bill. Thanks a bunch, you brighten my day.

Jerry Morgan called, and we had a long talk and covered a lot of topics. Jerry called me grandma because he says I’m a lot like a real grandma. Hope we can be at the Jesus House sometime soon.

Thanks to the church’s food bank for fixing me a nice box of fruit and veggies. Hope I can be back soon to work.

Thanks to my sister in law Hilda Nittler for checking on me. She’s like me doing the best she can. Love my sister in law and her family.

Hummingbirds and a lot of butterflies are enjoying my azaleas. I love watching them.

So sorry to hear of the death of our classmate, Maude Culler. Maude went about in her own quiet and sweet way. My love and heartfelt sympathy to the family. (She sent me a get well card and note) Thanks to LaNita Harris for calling and telling me.

Until next time, stay safe and take good care of yourself.

Food for thought- God loves all of us as if there was only one of us. May we reach out to others in His name as we go about our daily life.
