It’s been miserably hot this last week of August with just a couple of days in the 80s and even with the showers of last week, it (humidity) just comes creeping back.
I think the early autumn coolness that felt so good is fighting a loosing battle with the summer heat that keeps hanging on. We are very fortunate to have had what rain we did and it was a good soaker. This means the end of our gardens and maybe that's a good thing. The canning time has kept me right busy, but I do love it.
I do not have too much news this week except to say how very proud I was to be a member of the Paint Lick Christian Church on Sunday evening when we hosted the Fifth Sunday Hymn Sing. Our church was filled with singers from six out of eight Christian churches and to say they all did a fabulous job would be putting it mildly.
I want to say thanks to so many of you and I only hope you were all satisfied with the turn of the evening. I know I was thoroughly engrossed with each and everyone. I threw open the doors right on the last for all to hear the praises of our Lord Jesus in song and the Taylor family from Richmond did just that with an ending that left filled me with chill bumps.
The next scheduled hymn sing will be in November at New Antioch Christian Church.
The Paint Lick Church of God will conduct its homecoming Sunday, Sept. 14, beginning with Sunday services, where Brother Dallas Johnson is the pastor. Terry King will serve her ministry at the church on Friday, Sept. 12, and Elsie Gibson sends a big welcome to everyone for both at 7 p.m. Friday and at 7 p.m. Sunday’s homecoming.
Also, Scott’s Fork Christian Church will have its revival Sunday through next Thursday and then Bethel Christian will have its revival Sept. 15-19 and evening services are set for 7. Everyone is welcome.
A happy anniversary wish Monday for Melvin and Magdeline Begley of The Old Railroad. Happy birthday to Goug Hale of Buckeye on Wednesday and to Jerry Metcalfe next Thursday.
May God bless.
