Hello readers, I have been busy all day working at little things that seem to slip by me, so after a wonderful church service at Paint Lick Christian, I felt a bit more energized. I tend to be one who picks at something and then I'll forget why I did it on the first try and I have to backtrack? Now is that getting older or maybe I'm not "practicing what I preach" -- when I urge everyone to slow down and take it easy for more clearer thinking. I did get a few things accomplished and staying home for the day was a blessing for sure. I am so proud of my son Joe. He was out earlier this Sunday evening checking on the Christmas lights that surround his home. I'll have to say, he keeps Christmas alive, and this year, Joe will be blessed with not only one grandson, Nicholas Asher, but hopefully, Joe's granddaughter, Miss Eleanor, will show her stuff at the proper time and maybe surprise us all. My whole family is blessed.
The volunteers at the Friends of Paint Lick are very thankful for all the warm winter coats coming in these past few weeks. We are still giving coats and hoodies away, so if you would care to part with your adult coats, we'll see the warm clothing gets put to good use. We take about anything warm for this winter season and it's truly a good feeling to see all who come in at Friends. They leave with a big bag of whatever they find and it's because of people like you who give something so others will benefit. I do have a request. We are running short on the used toys for the children. Hardly a week goes by without someone bringing toys. We could also use donations of new or gently used toys for our Christmas giveaway at Friends Christmas in the Village and this will take place on Saturday, Dec. 7. I will have more details in another news column.
That topic brings me to Paint Lick's annual Thanksgiving Service, this Tuesday evening, Nov. 26, held at the Wallaceton Baptist Church, beginning at 7 p.m. I will encourage everyone to come share in the "Unity of Thanksgiving and The Giving of Thanks." We hope to make this an event to remember with more people in attendance. Please, come show your interest as we gather for the good of the people on Tuesday, Nov. 26, 7 p.m.
May God bless.
