Well folks, I’m wondering when it’s going to warm up. We have plenty of water today, I guess about July we will be wanting some rain. It sure has been a wet cold rain this spring, but the Lord knows what we need. He is still in control. He sends the sunshine and the rain. We never can be satisfied when it gets hot weather, we want cool and when it gets cold, we want it to be warmer.

We have had plenty of rain this past week up here on Upper Horse Creek. We had a flood and here in Clay County it was over the bridges and highways in places and you could ride boats in the fields. But it could have been a lot worse. We here in Kentucky and Clay County all are truly blessed.
I think of what’s happened in other places and I’m thankful that all the children here got home alright through the floods. I know that a lot of bridges and culverts got washed out this past week.

Well folks, I guess spring has got here and it’s a welcome sight to see everything come to life. The flowers are so pretty and the trees are leaving out. To me, spring is the most beautiful time of the year. The birds are singing and the frogs are jumping around and the bees are working and the weather is warm.

Well folks, it’s springtime now and it sure is a welcome sight. Some trees are blooming and the flowers are beautiful. As I’ve said so many times, I love springtime.

Well, today is Monday and the snow is on the ground. The month of March is the time of spring, but it’s wintertime here now. I hope April will bring some warm weather. I thought that we would have an early spring, but we’re not this year. March has been the worst month that we’ve had all year. We had a Magnolia tree and it was in full bloom and yesterday I looked at it and it was brown instead of pink. The freeze got it.
I’m sorry I didn’t get to write my column last week, something came up and I didn’t have time to take it down there.
I saw my friend, Preacher Riley Parker, last week down at the funeral home and he said he reads my write up. Thanks Brother Riley. He preached awhile here in Clay County and he has preached for many years in Ohio where he lives.
Daugh and Lucy Pearl Gregory were visiting with us today, they read the paper as well. They live in Michigan.
I’d like to say hello to my friend, J.C. Jarvis, who lives on Curry Branch. He told me that they read my little column. Thanks J.C. and to all of you. So many tell me that they enjoy reading my write up every week.
Some folks are still sick: June Mills, Dorthey Root, Waymon and Joyce Mills, Delbert Collins, Alice Mills and Harley Sibert. So pray for all these people.
The grandboy sure is growing up too fast, he’s a big boy and he’s got a birthday coming up in May. He’s already put his order in for what he wants for his birthday. He is a sight.
Robert Tuberfill was up Saturday night. He put strings on the baby’s banjo, you should see him play.
Happy birthday wishes go out to Stephen Centers, Kayden Hubbard, Lucy Pearl Gregory, Payton Blist Carson, Lee Hicks and Riley Chandler Broughton. We wish Daugh and Lucy Pearl Gregory a happy big 50th anniversary. So to you all, may the good Lord bless you all to have many more birthdays and anniversaries, from all the family and friends.
Our prayers go out to all the ones that lost a loved one the past week. Remember the ones in the hospitals, the nursing homes and the ones at home. Remember that we love you, but God loves you more.
I’ll stop for this time. May the good Lord bless and keep you and may He always hold you in His hands.
