Friendship & Mifflin.jpg

Hello to all! I hope you had a good week. The weather has been beautiful although it is warming up now. As July ends, the temperatures will be back up in the 90’s with increased humidity. Oh well. The sun and those beautiful blue skies with white puffy clouds are worth it. There are wildfires out west with monsoons expected, which could increase chances of mudslides. The weather sure has been hard to predict this year. Please pray for those in these areas.

Saturday was warm with the sun shining. Our birds are hungry, and once again, our land was mowed by this same “angel,” and I helped. We are so thankful and blessed. We will be going for pre-op lab soon. 

Thanks to my “friend” that sent the card and enclosures. I am enjoying the puzzle. I need to find six more. Praying you have a great week.

August is upon us. The school staff is preparing to return for the new school year. The football team has begun some practice, and this past weekend was tax free weekend. I hope everyone found the things they needed. Many of the high school students have been working this summer. Hope they saved some of their money. I hope all the students will begin to work on their sleep schedule. It will make it easier when the new school year begins. I wish everyone a great year ahead.

We enjoyed another Sunday with Bro. Glenn Harris preaching. The message was very good on Doubt. It was good to see those today that have not been in a while, whatever the reason. What a wonderful day to praise our glorious Savior.

Happy Birthday to Cody Butler and Nancy Parker, July 30; Dylan King, July 31; Don McLemore and Rachel Ellington, Aug. 1; Tyler Smith and Tanya Morris, Aug. 2; and Regina Priddy and Nancy Taylor, Aug. 3.

Happy Anniversary to Kathy & Boyd Cupples, July 28, and Tiffany and Jonathan Knipper, July 29.

“Together” by Diane Ranker Riesen - “I asked myself the other day -’Just what does true love mean/Does it make a day that’s perfect..or somewhere in between’/I think the answer lies deep down in those who really share/A promise lives within honor, work, and care/Life isn’t always easy..there’s so much that can go wrong/But, true love stands these many tests..and it stays very strong/There are no words to prove it-there is no secret ‘clue’/But I believe God sent us signs to prove that it is ‘true’/Through rich or poor-through thick or thin; when things are right or wrong/A true love weathers any’re right where you belong/What is it like to love so long- to share such joys and tears/The answer proves what true love is-it’s honored through the years/I hope each one can find this love...that lasts through any fear/that deepens with each sorrow-that strengthens with each tear/Such true love should be can be very ‘rare’/No matter what life brings to you- TRUE LOVE is always there.”

I pray you all have a wonderful week, and may it be filled with love, joy, peace and blessings. Remember: if you have news, please call me at 983-0718. Until next week, Happy Trails to You.
