Well folks, I’m waiting for spring time. Some folks like fall and winter but I like spring. When the trees start to bud and the leaves start coming up and the grass gets greener its a time when everything comes to life. There will be plenty of work to do on the farm like mowing the lawn and putting out the garden, but the grandbaby said he would help me. He likes to hoe the garden stuff. But I wonder when the sun gets hot how long he will help me. But he is tough, he likes brushing his pony and feeding the pony sweet feed.
I’m trying to teach him the right things to do. He likes it here on the farm. He helps me feed the chicken and gather the eggs. A lot of children don’t know anything about growing up on the farm. He and I go to the barn and he gets on the big boat and he wants to go fishing. He’s got anything that a child wants and I have spoiled him big time. We go to Sunday school and church and he is a good boy and he plays his guitar and sings too.
Happy birthday wishes go out to Wendy Beard way up Greensburg and may the good Lord bless you to have many more.
Pray for all the sick: Lee Hicks, Waymon and Joyce Mills, Edgar Lawson. So pray for them, folks.
The Hima Post Office will be changing hours starting January 14. The hours will be 9 – 11 a.m. Monday through Friday and on Saturday 7 a.m. – 1 p.m. The post offices are cutting back.
I want to thank everyone for reading my little column. Remember the ones in the hospitals and the nursing homes. Pray for all the ones that have lost a loved one. May the good Lord bless you and may He forever hold you in his hands.

Well folks, Christmas has come and gone. Here at our house, we had a good Christmas. Everyone was happy and all the children had a good time. We had a good dinner and we had a lot of the family Christmas day. The grandboy got what he told Santa to bring him. He got excited when he opened his gifts.
We want to thank the Pelfreys way up Virginia way for the gifts they sent to us and Raden. Sarah, we can’t thank you enough for what you have done for us. I got a camera for Christmas, and the good Lord willing, we will send you some pictures of the grandboy. He’s growing up so fast and he catches on so quick. He can make chords on his guitar and sings up a storm sometimes. He’s not three years old and he can count and say his ABCs and when I’m playing the guitar, he watches my fingers as I make chords. Maybe one day he will be a banjo player. I sure hope so.
Well folks, the New Year will be here very soon and I guess some people are making resolutions for the coming year. Going to Sunday school and church should be one of them.
Our elected officials are passing bills and making changes. They should put prayer back in our schools, I believe it would help. It sure used to. People today need to show love to one another and be kind to one another. As the bible says, Love thy neighbor as thyself. Do unto them as you would have them do to you.
Some folks are still sick and need prayer: Edgar Lawson, Waymon and Joyce Mills and Inez Smith.
Happy birthday wishes go out to Bradley Wilson, Sarah Gibson, Cody Denson, Preston Roark, Larry Smith, Diana Brown, Jonathan Denson, Aaron Smith and Wendy Beared. So happy birthday to all of you and may God bless you all to have many more.
We wish for everyone a happy and prosperous New Year and thanks to all of you that get the Enterprise and for reading my little column. May the good Lord bless all of you. Pray for all the sick, the ones in the hospital and nursing home and for all the ones that have lost a loved one. God bless America and may He always hold you in His hands.

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.
