Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone!

I hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving with family, friends and plenty of food. Let’s keep those in our prayers who are less fortunate. Also remember to keep the sick in our prayers. Visit those in nursing homes and those confined at home.

We would like to offer sincere sympathy to the family of Lewis Fisher who recently passed away. Also remember the family of Carl Drake who passed way last week. I would like to express my sympathy to a friend and former classmate of mine at Red Oak School, Evelyn Pittman Frazier. Her brother also passed away last week. It is always heartbreaking when we lose those we love but it seems to affect us more when holidays come around. Pray for all who have lost loved ones. May God comfort them is our prayer.

The Beulah Church of Christ had a Thanksgiving covered dish supper on Saturday. Everyone who attended enjoyed the food and fellowship.

Our sermon on Sunday was brought to us by our minister, Daniel West. The sermon went right along with the upcoming holiday. It was on “How to Live a Life of Thanksgiving.”

Men who served at the table Sunday were Earl Cary, Danny Hyde, Steve Wheeler and Mickey Matthews.

At this Thanksgiving season, remember to give thanks for all the blessings we have been given, no matter how small some of them may seem. Instead of spending time complaining about things we think are wrong or that we don’t like, try to make things better by spending our time giving thanks to God and to others around us for the many blessings we are given each day. Do something each day to make someone else’s life a little better, even if it is just a friendly smile or maybe a phone call to someone who is having a hard time.

We have a few birthdays coming up. Some of those are Exum Toney, Ellen Garris and Don Pittman. We have three birthdays that I know about on the same day. They are Betty Jean Cary Sullivan, Ann Evans Temple and Wilma Enroughty. (Betty and Ann are not as “old” as the other one though.) I hope everyone has a good birthday and many more to come. Happy birthday to you all!

We would like to keep Mary and Roger Parker in our prayers as they travel to Tennessee. They just received word that Roger’s brother, Bobby Ray Parker, has a very serious type of lung cancer, is now in ICU and things are seeming critical at this time. We pray God will keep them safe in their travels as all the family of Bobby are meeting there to be with him. Also, may God comfort them all is our prayer at this very heartbreaking time in their lives. God bless you all.

Well, I am writing all this news one day after you just received last week’s news due to the deadline for the Thanksgiving holiday at The Graphic so this may be old news by the time you read it. If so, I’ll try to update you next time.

I would like to say Happy Thanksgiving to each of you. I’d also like to say Happy Thanksgiving to someone out of town who always reads The Graphic and tells me they like it. They are a former classmate of mine, and live in Greensboro. They are Coak May and his wife Nancy. Thanks for staying in touch and God bless you and the family.

The thought for this week is another thing to be thankful for: Two eyes to look at God above, two hands to clasp in prayer, two feet to carry me to church – that’s why I am a millionaire!
