The weather has been really something lately — first dry and hot, then cool and wet. The rain was phenomenal on Saturday. Not sure what to expect for the rest of the month.

Joyce Hale has been feeling under the weather lately and we hope she gets to feeling better real soon. I also want to ask for prayers for a special friend in Sulphur Springs.

The watermelons are in. Tom has set up a wheelbarrow by the road and you may come by and purchase one for $2. Just put your money in the coffee can. They are really good. We are getting ready to start a fall garden. Any suggestions on what we need to plant? I have requested some peas since we didn’t get any last summer or this summer.

Those of you over 50 may want to put Oct. 13 on your calendar for the 3rd Annual Senior Citizens Expo. There will be fee health screenings and info: cholesterol, blood pressure, glucose checks height, weight, body composition checks, blood oxygen levels, pre-need counseling, food checks for diabetics, chair massages, home health equipment, answers to insurance questions, and flu shots. This will be held at New Beginnings Fellowship, at 155 North Jackson Street from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. This will be an excellent opportunity to get a good check-up. Mark your calendar and be there.

We want to extend our sympathy to Mrs. Retha Niswonger on her loss this week. Late birthday wishes to Linda Almon, Kim McCarty; Stacey McDonald on July 30. Happy birthday wishes to Kimberly Willingham, Aug. 1; AbyGail Darrow, Aug. 4; Pat Higginbotham and Brian Wright, Aug. 6; Jodi Bailey, Craig Buck and Bradley Teague on Aug. 8; and Gary Bolton, Aug. 9.

I checked with Beverly Haygood, our post mistress, and she seemed shocked to my question, “Is our Post Office one of those being closed?”  I assume that was a funny question because the Post Office is so important to Brashear. Right, Beverly?

Until next week, I hope everyone stays safe and keeps the faith. May your days be full of love and faith. Remember to call 903-612-8806; email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ; or just drop on by at County Road 1119. Thanks.
