Hi! Did you notice how today’s date reads in numbers?
10/11/12 – is this significant or what? Saturday’s forecast looks significant after the coolish temperatures. Upper 70s seem pretty significant for being outside!
From the desk of Tim Jones, pastor of Flatwoods Christian Church, we have these notes on their upcoming revival:
• On Sunday morning, Oct. 14 at the 10:45 service, Wayne Smith, former minister of Southland Christian Church for 40 years, will be our speaker.
• Sunday night at 6:45 p.m., Kenny Speakes, minister of Mt. Zion Church in Clark County, will sing and speak.
• Sunday night will be Youth Night.
• Monday night, John McCord, minister of Salem Christian Church, will be speaking and the Diggles Family from Lexington will provide the music.
• Johny Collins of Salem Christian Church will speak Tuesday night and the Brotherhood Quartet will bring the music.
• Wednesday, Terry Jones of Tiffin, Ohio, will preach and For His Praise will provide the music.
• Each service will be preceded by a mini-concert at 6:45 p.m. with the regular service beginning at 7 p.m. The exception to this is Monday night when the Diggles Family will sing at 6:30 p.m.
Congratulations to Allie Fox (big sister) and her parents, Beth (Richardson) and Wade, on the birth of their new baby girl, Alivia Klaire Fox.
Alivia arrived Tuesday, Sept. 18, weighing in at 8 pounds, 4 ounces.
Alivia’s maternal grandparents are Junior and Lois Richardson. Paternal grandparents are Marion and Anna Fox. Congratulations, everyone!
Chandler Trey Brandenburg enjoyed his 10th birthday celebration last Saturday, Oct. 6, with a family get-together at his home on Flint Road and a BFF sleepover that night.
Chandler received many nice gifts, his favorite food (pizza, of course,) cake and ice cream and a lot of the inedible green stuff – if you know what I mean!
Folks also enjoyed eating their favorite lunch at Waco BP on Saturday as well. I believe you could call it, “We wish you well in retirement, Geraldine Covey!” The cake wasn’t too bad either!
Thanks to the folks who volunteered at Flatwoods Cemetery on Saturday, despite the cool weather, and especially to the two gentlemen who built a wooden platform floor in the trash pit. It will be so much easier to get in there and take care of the trash without having to step in mud when it rains.
We’re glad Bill Palahunich is back home safe and sound after a trip with his Berlin Air Lift compadres to Salt Lake City, Utah, recently.
While in Salt Lake City, the entourage visited Mormon Tabernacle, was asked to stand up for recognition and then “experienced” the mesmerizing music and vocal renditions of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Absolutely, a great trip!
We’re also glad to hear George Kaylor is out and doing so well after a trip to the hospital last week.
A stint (or is it stent, or both?) in the hospital can do wonders, we hear! Our thoughts and prayers are with you for a full and complete recovery, friend.
Happy birthday wishes go out this week to: (belatedly) Brillian Cain, Oct. 1; Buzzy Campbell, Oct. 5; Scott Choate and Lori Moberly, Oct. 6; Joy Marcum, Oct. 9; Kylie Marcum, Oct. 10; Amanda Dunn Flynn, Oct. 15; and Matthew Marcum, Oct. 17.
Happy 3rd birthday to “great” nephew Jerrett Braxton on Oct. 13!
Deepest sympathies are extended to the family of Colby Tate, a former Waco student, whose funeral was conducted earlier this week.
In my mind, I can see Colby and where he sat when he was just 10 years old in fourth grade.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time.
That’s about it for this week. Have a great one!
Thinking about you now, Doug and Lorena.

Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?
