Sunday was a beautiful day and everyone was in a good mood at church. We are always happy to be together and catch up on the happenings of the week. Our lesson was good with a lot of input from many in class. We are still studying Revelations and only got three verses read and discussed.
We had a good song service and a special, which was indeed special because Randall sang and Jamie helped while Debra played the piano. It was very good and some of us had never heard Randall sing.
We are happy when he has a respite from the old truck driving job to come to church.
Happy to have our friend, Burl, with us. He has been helping out at different churches and doing God’s work and has been missed.
Ruth brought the message from many different scriptures all about the image of God.
Ruth and Kent (Burr) came home with me for lunch then went on to Ava to visit Ron and Bev Smith.
Most of the children of Herman and Leona Frye were present or were represented at a Frye Reunion Saturday at the Jim and Jean Frye place. Some from each family enjoyed the day, except for Shug and Duane’s families.
There were more than 100 present and they came from Joplin, Fair Play, Bolivar, Springfield, Ozark, Rogersville, Ava, Wasola, the state of Washington and Japan and Squires, Mo.
Shannon and Patty Frye from Washington spent a week visiting brother, Bill Frye and Lila and sister, Janet and Kenny Denton and various other relatives. Shannon is Jack’s youngest child.
Sheldon Frye is Jack’s grandson and is in the Navy and has been stationed in Japan. Sheldon will go from Janet’s to Virginia where he will then be stationed and will then bring his wife, Sako and son, Isiac, from Japan to live in the U.S.A. They will eventually live in Washington. His brother, Trevon, was there with their parents, Shannon and Patty.
I hope I have all the information correct. It gets confusing when I take notes and so I like longer items written and given to me. So my Sis needs to take notes.
Anyway, it was a joyous and glorious day spent together and with many younger people up and down and in Little Creek as were their ancestors before them from way back.
Herman and Leona Frye’s kids present or represented were Jack’s, Faye’s, Luna’s, Martha’s and Jim’s.
Everyone was especially happy that Doris Jean, Faye’s daughter, was able to be there. Her cancer is in remission. The Lord is good.
I’ll close with Jeremiah 29:11 which says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
