Needmore Days

Thinking about things earlier and made myself sad. These longer days caused Laura and me to go visit a while before dark. Made me remember the days of long ago when I was a boy and the neighbors would visit in the community late in the day for a little while. My mind took me out the road where I lived and good friends of long ago, and I realized they are all gone now. And that warm and friendly place remember is now cold and sad.

Every now and again we all need a little help. One person who helps me by cleaning my house also helps animals. Shandi Sandlin has been a name I have known since she was born. And I have had the pleasure of hearing stories of dogs being starved or abused, or abandoned, then Shandi getting them, helping them recover, and finally getting them a home and family.

From A Cracked Pot

In loving memory of Mr. Ben Herman, who never failed to teach his students life lessons through his stories of ‘Pee Wee’. He always had a smile for me when I went to Wal-Mart and always spoke fondly of all his ‘kids’. He touched many lives and was certainly an encouragement to me. We love you Mr. Ben; you will be sorely missed.

We send happy first birthday wishes to Molly Adeline Reynolds, the daughter of David and Monica Reynolds of Alexandria. Molly’s birthday was celebrated by family and friends last Saturday at the Dry Creek Baptist Fellowship Hall. The birthday party was decorated with a nursery rhyme theme. The Three Blind Mice gathered around a cheese tray, deviled eggs represented Humpty Dumpty, and pork mini sandwiches were surrounded by the Three Little Pigs. Cake and punch was served to the guest, and in the afternoon Molly opened all of her useful gifts. A fun time was had by children and adults.

Wednesday night Ryan Magness was to speak at Dry Creek Baptist Church concerning the Gideon Ministry; however the weather caused that to be put off. We know the Gideons to be dedicated men and their wives committed to serving God. The Gideons are always willing to tell others about Jesus through sharing personally or by providing Bibles and New Testaments all over the world. This is a ministry everyone can get involved in by giving your support through donations and prayers. We are thankful to the Gideons everywhere for their untiring efforts to partner with our churches in this ministry ...

It was so beautiful – full of possibilities. His imagination had no bounds where the pellet gun was concerned. He’d been shot in the back with one not long ago; it didn’t really hurt, but it was fun playing with those pellet guns. He wondered how many birds he could shoot with one. And if his siblings annoyed him too much, he could always threaten to shoot them. It wouldn’t really hurt them after all.

Looking out over the farm we see the snow and ice lingering on and remember the old tale of snow that lies around just waiting on another one. We do not wish for any more snow or ice this winter. The beautiful vision of our porch being graced with ferns and blooming flowers of spring is dancing around in my head.
