Dear Salem family, thank you for everything you’ve done for us during such a long illness. We are so blessed with such a loving family. God has us in the palm of his hand and gives us strength to handle the moment. We’ve missed you, the Roses.

A wonderful time was had at the Easter breakfast. Thank you to Joyce Byrd, Courtney Fee, Patsy Fee, Anna Blake Hanks, Mary Holland and Juanita Waits for preparing such a delicious meal and fellowship.
We very much appreciate the Rev. and Mrs. Todd and all family members who were able to be with us at this special time.
Jimmy tells us that Carolyn is recovering fine and got a good report from the doctor. I understand Charlie’s daughter and girls were able to be with them as well. That’s a blessing.

Easter is always a blessed day. Last Saturday, I had the opportunity to visit with my dear beloved church family in Dyersburg, the Phillip Street Church of Christ, for the annual Ladies Day meeting and luncheon. There were 17 different congregations represented from around West Tennessee. This is where my family and I worshiped prior to moving to Tipton County. They have been very special people in my life.
At Covington Church of Christ, many of the congregation were still in Memphis for the annual Lads to Leaders program, which focuses on church youth speaking and praying in front of the congregation and leadership rolls. A special thanks to Heather Keith for teaching our young girls how to lead singing.
The girls cannot lead during our worship services, as the Church of Christ uses only men for church services, however girls may lead in Bible study classes or special events for the children. Even with some still not having returned from the program, the pews were filled. It’s a blessing to see people worshiping together on this special day of Christ’s resurrection.
Following church, I met Mr. Bill and his family at the Brighton home of his daughter, Debbie Neal. Bill’s daughter Sandy and her family, who reside in Nashville, were here as well. He had all of his children and grandchildren here together, which doesn’t happen often. Debbie and Bud had a new wooden patio cover installed last week(a gorgeous design), so we all had lunch outside. It was a beautiful day and a special weekend. My children were here, there and yonder this year.
Have a great week!
