I hope all of you good mothers had a great day Sunday. One mother, did at Garrison Church. Her daughter was saved. She can always remember that. 63 present. Justin sang two special songs. Lisa Ellison sang one and her grandson and her sang one. He is so cute. He asked Lisa if he could tell his mom he loved her. So he had the mic in his hand and before he sang he said, “Mom, I love you.” He had a cute shirt on, it read, “Gone Fishin’.” Lisa told him he was a good son and I do agree.

Young people have so much to face. Our world is in a bad shape, going against God and the Bible. What a mess our leaders are getting into. Plus not letting God and the Bible lead them. Money sure turns people’s heads. When they know they are doing wrong and struggle with what is right and wrong and still do wrong.
Several were at Jerry Nelson’s as we came home Sunday. Jerry Powell is back from the Navy. I don’t know if it is permanent or he has to go back for a while. Ervin and Sandra Maggard and their daughter, Valerie Austin and her son, Shelby and friend, Lacey, were Mother’s Day guests of Ervin’s mom, Iona Maggard.
