It's a beautiful Monday morning as I sit and ponder my thoughts of the last week.
I was really thankful to be back at Paint Lick Christian Church on Sunday as it's been some time since we met. Even with the few people there, our pastor, Garth, gave a good message from the book of Mark.
I did miss the noise of Miss Ellie. She stayed home with her sister, Miss Emily, and watched as Daddy Ryan did another morning feeding and mama took a break. Maybe another time when baby sister gets older. Then they both can come to church and make lots of noise.
We have bright sunshine here in Lowell after a cold night.
A trip to our Paint Lick Post Office will surprise even your dullest day. Sarah and her granddaughters have brightened up the lobby with an Easter-season theme and they have rabbits climbing the walls and eggs growing on a tree, and pink paw prints on the floor.
This past year with Sarah as our new OIC has been a blessing. She knows how to brighten my day.
I only pray that one day we will have more business in this area and maybe the post office can make it better for us all. Sometime this week, maybe you can look in on Sarah and tell her how much she is appreciated.
As I write to you this morning, I am looking at the photo obituary of Mr. Roy Rhodus, a past member of our church. Roy passed on in late February and even now I miss his smile.
Gail Adams and I were reminiscing on Roy and G.B. Shell on Sunday at church and where those two always had a seat -- their places -- are a lasting treasure.
The Paint Lick Christian Church members will say thanks to the many people who knew and loved Roy Rhodus and G.B. Shell for the kindness and acceptance that we are still a part of God's world. I usually keep those small papers (obits) above my computer. You know the kind we pick up at the funeral home and intend to keep. With that picture, I'll be reminded of Roy , the strong dedicated gentleman always with a smile.
A good day for mowing my yard the first time now that most of the pollen is gone and the rest of this week looks "up and down" with more rain and even colder nights until the weekend Easter weekend.
A special season where we can rejoice in Christ our Saviour in his rebirth. I plan on being a part of Paint Lick's Good Friday Services this Friday at 7 p.m. and we will meet at Wallaceton Baptist Church on Guynn Rd. off Hwy 21 (three miles from Berea). Everyone is welcome to come be with all our churches as we practice CDC's guidelines and give praises to our Lord.
I have a special Happy Anniversary wish for my niece Angie and her hubby Robert on Tuesday, April 6.
Will it be 30 years?
Not too many can say that "we stayed with it" that long. Thanks guys. have a great week.
May God Bless, Katie
