We sure have been blessed here in Clay County.
We sure have been blessed here in Clay County. It’s almost Christmas time and its 60 degrees here today. But we don’t know how long the pretty weather will last. Enjoy it while we can.
A lot of folks have put up the pretty lights around their homes. The city has done a good job putting up the decorations and lights at town, they are so pretty. The children like to see them. Christmas is a wonderful time of the year, its Christ’s birthday, when our Savior was born.
The grandbaby got some of the things he wanted for Christmas. He wanted a pony, a bridle and saddle and he got them. He likes the pony and has already rode the pony. A boy needs a pony here on the farm. He is a good boy, he likes going to Sunday school and church. He acts like a grown up and everyone at the church loves him. So many children don’t even know who Jesus is because they have never been to Sunday school or church.
Our prayers go out to all of the families that lost their children at the school where a young man killed his mother and 26 more at the school, 20 were young children. We wonder what gets in people’s mind to do awful things like this.
Remember the James Brown family. James and I were good friends. Our prayers go out to them, he surely will be missed. Some folks are still sick and need prayer: Waymon and Joyce Mills, Lee Hicks and Edgar Lawson.
Some folks are having birthdays this week: Shane Gibson, Jordan Sizemore, Victor Gregory and Oakley Ray Gregory on Christmas day. Happy anniversaries go out to George and Fay Blair, Donald Lee and Anna Hubbard, Harold and Trish Smith, and Lee and Lillie Mae Hicks. So to you all, may the good Lord bless each of you to have many more. We love you all, from all your families and friends.
Tina Ann Sheets wants to say hello to her grandson Jaxson Smith and we would like to say hello and a merry Christmas to our family up Michigan way and up Indiana way too. From our house to yours, we wish for you all the best Christmas ever. May the good Lord bless you and God bless America and may He forever hold you in his hands.

Well folks, I’m sorry about not getting to put my column in the paper last week. I was sick again, but I’m better now. Thank you all for calling me about my little write up as we think about Christmas. It’s a wonderful thing. It’s Christ’s birthday, when Jesus was born.
Too many have forgotten the true reason for the season. I know it’s good for families to get together and many exchange gifts, but we all should be glad that Jesus was born to be our Savior.
Today, we hear of so many bad things happen in the world and the country we live in. I can tell you that God loves all mankind and he will help you if you want Him to. We all have choices to make. I trust that you will choose Jesus. What would we do without Him or where could we go. Friends, it’s a thought.
I want to thank you all for the pretty Christmas cards that we got. The grand baby is growing so fast. We went to Sunday school and church too. He likes going, he plays his guitar and sings too. Today, not many parents take their children to Sunday school or church. It would make a difference in their homes and their families.
This week, birthday wishes go out for Dakota Daugh Sizemore, Jaden Eli Broughton, Kassie Williams, Donald Lee Hubbard Jr, Ethel Mae Jackson and Toby Tate Scrivner. Hope you have a great one and may the Lord bless you to have many more, from all of our family to you.
A lot of people are sick and in need of prayer: James Brown, Waymon and Joyce Mills, Edgar Lawson and Lee Hicks. Our prayers go out to the Brown family. James and Carol Brown sure need prayers, as they lost a daughter this past week and James is in the Lexington Hospital at this time. They have had their share of sorrow, so pray for them and the ones in the hospitals, the nursing homes and for all those that have lost a loved one.
Well, I’ll stop for this time. May the good Lord bless and keep you and may He forever hold you in His hands.

Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone and we had plenty of company through the holiday and we had enough turkey and ham for everyone. Nobody left hungry. We thank the good Lord for His blessings and His goodness.
My wife sure likes to cook, and she sure is a good cook. She can make homemade biscuits like my mother used to make. I call them cathead biscuits. I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.
Well, the next holiday will be Christmas. That is Christ’s birthday. The Lord is so good to us all, we are so blessed here in America. Look at the other countries, war everywhere.
I’ll say one thing, America needs to turn back to God. I wonder myself how long will God keep on Blessing us. The Bible says that the nations that forgot God will perish. God has all power. Seems like we are at ease. We all should be watching for his coming and I believe that we are living in the last days. Any more, people don’t want to go to church and there is a great falling away.
Well, some folks are still sick and need prayer: James Brown and his daughter Sonya Dezarn, Edgar Lawson, Waymon and Joyce Mills, Landon McDaniels, Inez Smith and Von Minton. So pray for all these people, they need a touch from the Lord.
Happy birthday wishes go out to Gary Roberts. May the good Lord bless you to have many more.
I’m looking for a pony for the grandbaby. If you have one that is gentle for a 3 year old to ride, call me at 598-6348. I’ll truly appreciate it.
I want to thank everyone for reading my little column each week. Well, I’ll stop for this time. Pray for the ones in the hospitals, the nursing homes and for the ones that have lost a loved one. May the good Lord bless and keep you and may He forever hold you in His hands.

We all should be thankful everyday for God’s goodness, not just on the holidays. God has blessed us here in Clay County, look at the other states where so many things have happened. You know the Lord could send destruction on us too. We are so blessed, we should count our blessings everyday.
We had a good singing Saturday night. The grandbaby enjoyed Robert Turberfield as he played the banjo for him. He sure likes gospel bluegrass. You should see his little fingers as he tries to play his banjo.

Thanksgiving will be here next week and families everywhere will be together for this holiday, but we are to give thanks everyday and today is Veterans Day. So many brave men and women gave their lives for our freedom and we are to honor them.
Well, we have had some cold mornings this past week and most of the leaves are gone off of the trees. As I’ve always said, its good to have friends. I want to thank Roger Samples for helping me to start the truck. Roger’s dad and I worked together on the Highway Department. They are good people, so when you see somebody you know that needs help, help them if you can. Be a good neighbor.
The Roots Branch Church will be having their monthly singing this Saturday night starting at 7 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The grandbaby is growing so fast. He likes his big jeep and he sure can drive it. He is in the yard and around the barn and garden with his jeep, he keeps me busy charging it up, and he likes to play with his little boat on the pond. he runs my legs off keeping up with him. He sure is a smart little fellow.
A lot of people are still sick and need prayer: Waymon and Joyce Mills, Edgar Lawson, James Brown and Denver Smith.
Happy Birthday wishes go out this week to Brooke Ann Dieson, James D. Hicks and John Wiley Sibert. Also, happy belated birthday to Goldie Griffin. Feeling mighty fine, hit the big 59, from family and friends. We wish for all of you the best birthday ever and may the good Lord bless you all to have many more.
Remember the ones in the hospitals, the nursing homes and the ones that have lost a loved one. We wish for everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving, from our home to yours. May the good Lord bless and keep you, and may He forever hold you in His hands.
