Mountain Top Party Line – March 15th, 2017

By Ivalien Reynolds

My aunt, Katherine Boyd (r), and her daughter, Alece Boyd O’Brien. Aunt Katherine is still with us, but sadly, Alece passed away.  I miss her letters so much and those videos from her home in Missouri.

It’s been a really exciting week here in Patrick Springs Pentecostal Holiness Church with the Mills Family holding revival. Different churches came together to worship and enjoy the messages. If you didn’t come, you surely missed a blessing.

“Miss Claudine” Wood up on the mountain would like for readers of “The Party Line” to put her on your personal prayer list.

I’m excited to hear that one of my favorite people will soon open a restaurant in our area, and of course, Elizabeth’s is still a favorite. Love my Elizabeth’s friends! Bless you!

Thanks to neighbors Larry and Teresa Martin for picking me up and taking me to the revival at night, and all their kindness.

I hear that Sam Handy is doing well these days at home. Keep him in your prayers.

I enjoyed some down time with friends, Linda, Danny and Mary at Elizabeth’s Pizza the other evening, then we enjoyed the revival.

Mary Ann called from Washington D.C. They are very busy preparing for the Easter service these days.

What an exciting time when the Lee University Symphonic Band came to the Pentecostal Holiness Church on March 9.

I hope you didn’t forget to set your clock for Daylight Saving Time. It seems quite a few people forget and are late for church.

Thanks to Leon Handy for his kindness to me and a very nice surprise.

Harry Wood came up from Tennessee for a visit with his mother, Claudine Wood. They had a nice visit and Harry always brings lots of goodies. I’m sure a lot of readers remember Harry from Meadows of Dan School.

Something to think about. How are our memories? We have forgotten so many things our instructors once taught us. But thanks to God, we have a higher instructor, the Holy Spirit, who through the word we read over and study brings things back. In some instances, our new insights may seem like a fresh revelation of truth.

Cooking Hint: When frying chicken, canola oil provides a milder taste and contains healthier amounts of saturated and polyunsaturated fats. Do not cover chicken after cooking because covering will cause coating to lose its crispness.



1 lb. ground beef

1 10-3/4 oz. can tomato soup

1 cup chunky salsa or Picante sauce

1/2 c water

1 c shredded cheese

8 flour and corn tortillas (6 inch cut into 1-inch pieces)

Brown beef in skillet and drain off fat. Add soup, salsa, water, tortillas and half the cheese. Bring to boil, cover and cook over low heat 5 minutes or until hot. Top with remaining cheese. Serves 4.

Food for thought

Bill Cosby said, “I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is to try to please everybody.” Also, it will wear you out.
