Hi everyone. The weather is cloudy this morning but the temperature sure is nice. Can’t believe there’s hardly any flowers in bloom at present time. Roses are beautiful and azalea bushes have been beautiful, and now the wild honey suckle are blooming. If you’ve never saw wild honey suckle, you have missed something. They are a pretty pink color and the smell just takes your breath away. I used to live in the woods and I’d gather the wild honey suckle and put a bouquet in every room.
The congregation at Liberty Church was so saddened last week to hear that Joyce Cain of St. Charles had suffered a heart attack and later passed away. She and her husband moved here a few years back-and later he passed away-she stayed around for a year or so then decided to move to St. Charles near a daughter. She attended our church every Sunday and everyone grew to love her. She was a real nice lady. She came back a few times to visit with us. Our loss is Heaven’s gain. Our sympathy goes out to loved ones.

Keep Norma West in your prayers.
Be in prayer for Karion Sutton-she’s having cancer surgery. They seem to think they have caught it in time. It’s in her breast. Her brother Drew Hamilton has melanoma in his side. He’s having surgery real soon also. I hate the word cancer-you just never know who’s next. Ken West, my nephew, his wife Iva has cancer about all over. Steve King who lives near me has some kind of back trouble that also affects his legs. He’s off work and now has to use a cane. He is in pretty bad shape. Pat Williams is having health problems. Thelma Faulkner is supposed to have back surgery the last of this month. Be in heavy prayer for all these sick people. May God bless you all in your sickness.
Claude Files’ brother Danny suffered a light stroke last week. He is coming along pretty good. Having a little trouble walking right now. He needs prayer also.
Well South Iron will close its doors again on Wednesday the 9th. Graduation is tomorrow Saturday afternoon. I wish you seniors the best in life and pray you don’t throw that precious life away. May God bless you all.
