The hills are alive with spring flowers in bloom

Hello everyone. We had such a tragedy last week. The roads can be so wicked. A young man lost his life on a motorcycle. I think sometimes we think if we can avoid getting behind someone before getting into the curves that we can get to town a little quicker, but that doesn’t work. Remember that this is a farming community and you might as well plan to start early because there is always a chance of getting behind farming equipment. It is that time of year to start preparing the ground so use extra caution and don’t be in a rush. Our prayers go out to this family.

You can see the farmers at work. They are plowing up the ground for their crops. The plowed ground looks so nice because it means spring is about here. The ground seems as if it is turning good this year.

The flowers are popping out and some are even blooming. If we don’t have too bad of a cold spell, we might have some pretty spring flowers.

A special thanks goes out to the county road crew for assisting in the pickup of the stacked tree limbs. I know that it has been a big job, but one well done.

The Kirksville Baptist Church will be having their VBS June 7-12. It may seem a little earlier to start announcing, but they are in need of getting prepared in training all their volunteers. So say yes to be a volunteer.

The Full Gospel Tabernacle is in the process of ordering more chairs for the sanctuary. At their last singing with Mark Bishop, they had to pull out the folding chairs. They want to make sure everyone gets a nice seat to enjoy the services. If anyone is interested in making a donation, call Rickey Horn at 623-0933.

  • ‘Thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff comfort me’

    The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
    (Psalm 23:1-6)

  • Katie-Rollins.jpg Paint Lick community Christmas tree lighting is Friday, Nov. 30

    Hello readers, it is a chilly, yet cloudy Monday morning, this Nov. 19. As I look out into the street here above the Friends of Paint Lick building, I see the most incredible little tree that sits alone, just waiting to be lighted for the Paint Lick community Christmas celebration. The small spruce was planted by two gardeners from Baldwin Farms, friends of Hal and Yvonne Davis.

  • Waco Pentecostal Tabernacle fundraiser Saturday Hi!

    Here we are in fall again!

    How do so many leaves fall off a tree and get scattered in so many different directions in one day?

    How many more leaves are still on the tree that will turn and fall and be scattered in the days to come?

    It almost makes one want to wait until all the leaves are off the tree before picking up a rake or broom. That might be better than raking and sweeping each day for many, many days to come.

  • Paula Jones Roadside clean-up set for Saturday How is everyone’s week going? I hope that everyone is having a great one. We have once again had a little mixture of weather, cool, rain, warm and sunshine. One can never tell what the March weather will be. Have you noticed the buttercups blooming? I also saw some bushes and trees blooming. I even saw a redbud tree blooming! There is such beauty in spring as it comes to life.

  • Take care of your community: Don’t litter! Hello readers. The late evening sun is shining through an upstairs window from where I’m sitting and I notice the brilliance of an outer ring that seems to flow toward the creek as it (sun) begins the journey into the night. I do love to just look and enjoy all we have on this Earth to appreciate. It’s always the little things that seem to make up the circle of life. Like the bright yellow daffodils blooming in Mrs. Callahan’s yard and the many buttercups alongside the road — the little things.
