The Lord Knows What We Need
Well folks, we are having plenty of hot weather here in July. When its 95 and 98 degrees, some states are having hot dry weather too, but we have got some rain here. My brother, who lives in Liberty 2nd, called me today. He said they hadn’t got any rain for a month, he said it was a bad day up there. We here in Clay County have been blessed with a lot of things we take for granted in life, but the good Lord knows what we need.
The grandbaby in growing up so fast, he’s getting into everything, and he’s talking some words you can understand. He sure likes guitars and gospel music too. I take him to church and Sunday school. He goes with me to feed the chickens and helps me hatch the eggs. He is a sight.
I planted pumpkins, squash, and gourds. The gourds are climbing up bushes and the vines are running everywhere. Maybe I can raise some. It sure is a big job around here on the farm, mowing the yard and the fields, and keeping the weeds out of the garden. Some folks say its to hot to work, but I get out early in the morning and late in the evening, and when it gets real hot to go to the house!
Some people are sick and in need of prayer. Waynan and Joyce Miler, Edgar Loundan, Shirley Jones, Shade Minton, Shade’s Brother John Thomas Minton, and Wilson’s great nephew, a little baby who has heart trouble. So pray for all of these people. Remember the Frank Hyde family and the Harris Family and all who have lost a loved one this past week. So many each week. Pray for all the Churches. Pray for the ones in the hospitals and the Nursing homes.
Happy Anniversaries go out this week to Harley and Norma Lee Sibert and may God bless you to have many more. You both are special people. From all the family and friends. Happy Birthday wishes go out to Traci Gregory up Michigan way. Also Diana Williams “little Liley” I call her, up Eubank way and Linda Sue Hubbard. Also Zach Hicks will be 15 years young and he’s got a girlfriend, and plays football and basketball in Clay Co. So to you all, may God bless you all to have many more birthdays.
Well folks I want to thank everyone for reading my column each week, and for all of you who get the paper from out of county and state. I want to tell you all I truly appreciate you.
Well I’ll stop for this time. May God richly bless you all.
God Bless America and May God forever hold you in his hands.

Upper Horse Creek Happenings
The weekends for me are busy, going to reunions and to singings and to church but to enjoy working for the lord. Once a man told me he didn’t have time to go to church, and those that don’t have the time to go, they will take the time to die. You know we all have choices in life, and though many make the wrong choices. Choose the lord and make the right choice. A lot of people are sick and in need of prayer. Wayman and Joyce Mills, Edgar Laweon and Paul Jackson. Pray for the ones that are in the nursing homes, the ones that are in the hospitals and remember the ones that have lost a loved one in the past week. In tome of sickness and death, the good lord is a friend in time of troubles. I’d like to say hello to my friends up in Lynchburg, Virginia, the Peffreys and the Smiths. They truly are my good friends. So many people tell me that they enjoy reading my little column each week. A lot of them are from out of state. I thank you all so much. Well the great grand baby is rowing up fast, some words he says you can understand and I take him to church and he takes his little guitar with him. If we don’t teach our children and grand children about the lord, who will?
Well the garden is coming along good. The gourds are blooming and the big pumpkins are too. I like working in the garden and getting some dirt on my hands.
I’ll tell you its hard work raising a big garden, but there’s nothing like going to the garden and getting tomatoes, corn, beans, cabbage, cucumbers, potatoes, onions, lettuce and mustard. The sweet potatoes are growing so fast. I planted 2,200 sweet potato plants. The late beans and sweet corn are up and I’ve plowed them out. I guess I have planted about 3 acres in the Garden this year. 2 guess I can say that I raise a big garden. I keep busy around the farm. There’s something to do all the time.
Happy Birthday wishes go out to J. Hugh Smith up Liberty 2nd way. May God bless you to have many more.
I saw a lot of friends Saturday, down at the park where the family reunion of Oakley and Dora Minton was, the family reunion was in honor of there parents. A good time was had.
We’ll, I’ll stop for this time. May God richly bless you and your family and don’t for get to take your family to Sunday school and Church next Sunday. God Bless America and May God forever hold you in his hands.

Well folks enjoy summer time, it want be long until fall and then winter. Seems like the days and weeks are flying by. Well we got to go camping and fishing this past week. We went to Woods Creek Lake and it is so beautiful there. We got our water from that lake. You can ride boats for miles and miles, and the water was so clean, It always good to see God’s creation. You know that God made everything to see the pretty flowers blooming and the big trees. There were good campsites on the shore with plenty of shade trees. There were a lot of people out camping and fishing and some were riding their boats. Its good to get a little R and R once in a while.
The Roots Branch Church will be having a monthly singing this Saturday night starting at 7 PM. The Cheek Family will be there, everyone is welcome to attend. There will not be any Sunday school or preaching Sunday morning, due to the cemetery meeting, but there will be Sunday night service. Frieda Smith will be celebrating their Anniversary July 18, we wish you many more. Sarah Sibert will be celebrating her birthday on July 18, so may God bless you to have many more.
Our roads up Roots Branch need repairing and ditching before winter comes. I hope the county will fix them. They did a good job mowing the roads. The garden is coming along pretty good. The gourds are running like crazy and the big pumpkins are growing. It’s amazing to watch things grow.
The cemetery meeting will be at Mill Creek starting at 11 o’clock. Well folks I’ll stop for this time. Again I thank you for reading my little column each week. So many call me and tell me they enjoy reading it.
May God richly bless you and your family. God bless America and may he forever hold you in his hands.

Minton Family Reunion July 16th
Well folks, Monday was the 4th of July. A lot of people celebrated Saturday and Saturday night and some waited until Monday A lot of people from out of state came back to Kentucky to visit their family and friends and that is good.
The reunion went well Sunday down at the park. A lot of the family was present and a lot of good food and good gospel singing. We had a cemetery meeting Monday at the mountain graveyard and a good number were present. Bill Goins did a good job making seats and tables at the shelter house. We didn’t have to take tables or chairs this year and thanks go out to Bill for the job he did.
Clara Bell Sizemore was there at the meeting, she is a sight. I meet a lot of friends at Wal-Mart and the grocery store and they tell me they enjoy reading my little column each week and I appreciate all of you.
I don’t have any birthdays this week. Some folks are still sick and in need of prayer, Wayman and Joyce Mills, and Edgar Lawson. Remember the ones that have lost a loved one this past week.
It was sad to hear of Allie Hoskins passing away. She was a good friend. So pray for George and his family. I know the Lord can take care of everything. He’s been there for me. As I’ve always said, “If you have had trouble, just hold your base, it will come your way”. I’ve surely had my share of trouble and heartache and I know many of you have too.
On Saturday, July 16th, the Oakley and Dora Minton Family will be having a family reunion at Rawlings & Stinson Park at 1 pm. So be making planes to be there. Bring a covered dish, plates, napkins, cups, drinks or ice. If you have fun outdoor activities for kids or adults, please bring them too. It’s always good for family to get together. Hope to see everyone there.
Remember the ones that are in the hospital and the nursing home and the ones that are at home. Well I’ll stop for this time. May God bless you all and God bless America and may he always hold you in his hands.
