  • February 2014 - My purse left at Krogers

    I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and He gave ear to me. In the day of my trouble, I sought the Lord …Hear my prayer, O Lord, and let my cry come unto thee. Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble, incline thy ear unto me in the day when I call, answer me speedily. Be not far from me, for trouble is near; for there is none to help. O Lord, O my Strength, haste thee to help me" -- Psalms 77:l,2; l02:1,2; 22:l1,l9. It is Friday afternoon, 2:30. I mu

  • January 2014 - New Year

    The best place to find thoughts for the new year is in the Bible. I have chosen Psalm 90 from "The Living Bible, by Tyndale" (my favorite translation): "Before the earth was formed, You are God without beginning or end. You speak, and man turns back to dust. A thousand years are but as yesterday to You! … We glide along the tides of time as swiftly as a racing river, and vanish as quickly as a dream. We are like grass that is green in the morning but mowed down and withered before the evenin

  • December 2013

    December 2013 Christmas will have a sprinkle of sadness among showers of gladness for my grandchildren this year because they lost their other grandmother, Florence Jones, on Oct. 27, due to cancer. When the call came on Oct. 19 from Amy, Lee, Jr.'s sister, that their mother was placed in hospice, he, his wife Diane, two of his daughters, Rachel and Sarah, and baby James, drove to Abilene. Florence told Rachel that she wanted to write a note of thanks, love and appreciation, to all her dear fri

  • November 2013 - Billy Graham

    For a number of years, I have sent Billy Graham a card on his birthday (Nov. 7), together with my current "Happenings." Sometimes he sends me an acknowledgment, which I appreciate, even though it is a "form letter." He must get hundreds of cards! This is a part from my latest: "Dear Friend, I would have never dreamed I would live this long. My wife, Ruth, passed away a little over six years ago, and a little bit of me died with her. I miss her more with each passing day. This was Ruth's favo

  • Shirley's Truck Drove in Lake

    You can tell the Centerville News is run by a Christian organization. A Bible Scripture is somewhere on every page. To the right are the ones for this edition, which includes three prayer lists of names. I lifted them up to God in prayer--He knows their needs. The Reporter ended the tragedy with "Please keep these families in your prayers." Page 2 pictured citizens gathering to pray on the National Day of Prayer (May 7). The Leon County Commissioners Court meeting detailed their business and d

  • Wanda's Snake and Ronnie's Pneumonia - June 2012

    "Rejoice always. PRAY WITHOUT CEASING. In every thing give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you" (I Thessalonians 5:16-18) Daughter Wanda and Dexter's beautifully landscaped property is electronically gated at the end of Sanctuary Drive in Florida. Beyond is a huge, gorgeous lake. However, the six acres between the highway and their home is rugged, unkempt, wild weeds. Wanda complained to the city officials and was told the owner lives somewhere in Europe and th
