Paint Lick community Christmas tree lighting is Friday, Nov. 30

Paint Lick

PAINT LICK — 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.

It sits on the corner by The Community Arts Center in hopes that everyone will turn out on the evening of Nov. 30 as the lighting takes place at 5:30. I hope everyone can find time to be with us. The Arts Center is the place to be in the coming month of December. To hear whatÅfs going on, call 925-2741.

You just can't help noticing both windows at Copperhead Environmental Consulting. I did on Friday night. Vickie has done a wonderful job on the trees.

First off, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone out there. I pray your holiday will be filled to the measure of His  respect. We had a great Sunday Thanksgiving meal at the Paint Lick Christian Church. It sure was nice to see so many people, and they brought a bounty of food! Especially nice to see those who seldom get to be with us. Simply saying thanks to so many for all the nice fixings is not enough, but I hope they will join us when they can on any Sunday morning as everyone is welcome.

I see Charlie Gruen has an extra nice Chevy Impala sitting out for sale. I know, for certain that Charlie's a good mechanic, and I believe this car would make a happy fulfillment of someoneÅfs Christmas wish. Call Charlie at 925-2206

This Friday is, I hope, a happy birthday for Devon of Gillespie Pike. Then, on Sunday and in the coming week, two beautiful ladies, Shirley Hawley and Bonnie Lamb, will share a birthday.

Also, happy birthday wishes to Ashley Ramsey, granddaughter of Druscilla Davidson on Nov. 30.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and may God bless.

  • ‘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)

  • 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.
