It’s Dec. 2, 2009, and winter seems to be rushing in. Hope you are warm wherever you are. We survived Thanksgiving and enjoyed being with family in Clarksville. We were blessed to have both

of our daughters and their families join us for the holiday. Hope you and yours enjoyed this special time to be thankful for all that we have.

Just want to let everyone know that Nancy Smith is doing some better but has been moved to Carriage House to recover from her broken shoulder. Let’s not forget to remember her in our prayers.

December 6th the Brashear Baptist Church will be having their Christmas Concert. If you would enjoy hearing some beautiful Christmas music, be sure to come. They will be serving dinner after church service.

Do not forget that the Christmas parade, Heritage Park, and Sulphur Springs downtown will be having a fun-filled holiday extravaganza this weekend. Friday night is the date, so don’t forget. The Northeast Texas Choral Society will also be having their annual Christmas concert this weekend. I know they have prepared a beautiful program for us to enjoy at 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.

Sunday, Nov. 25, I got to experience the Sulphur Springs High School Drama Department’s presentation of “Beauty and the Beast.” My two granddaughters were enthralled. This was a first rate production. I want to congratulate Mrs. Doyle and her students for such a great job.

Wildcat time again!! Sorry, but I couldn’t help but mention that we are still playing in December. Last Friday night, I saw a group of young men band together and put together a win that gave the crowd their money’s worth. I also gained a few new gray hairs. What a win!! Several people came up and said be sure to say “Congratulations to the Wildcats!” Hope to see you in Dallas Saturday for the game this week against Denison. Denison filled the stands last Saturday for their game against Marshall. We want to show them our spirit. Come wearing blue and gold and let them know that Sulphur Springs is there. Gates open at 12:30 and every seat has a back on it (important for people like me who enjoy a little comfort at the games).

Happy birthday time: Les White, 12/3; and Liz Keller, Brently Vice 12/8.

Meal A Day menu for Thursday includes broccoli, chicken divan, mixed vegetables and beets; and for Friday is Frito chili pie, corn on the cob and cole slaw. Meal A Day is served for $2 a plat at the Senior Citizens Center from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. week days.

I had a wonderful time at the RSVP Christmas party at the Senior Citizens Center on Dec. 1. If you have the urge to do some volunteering, just check at the Senior Citizen Center with Karon and she will get you set up with RSVP, a great organization.

Today a beautiful woman will be buried, Mrs. Gideon. She and her husband were the first people who greeted us at church 20 years ago when we moved to Sulphur Springs. Isn’t it amazing a simple thing like that stays with us over the years? Heaven open up your doors and welcome this gracious lady into your membership.

Running down, so I just want to say “God is good, all the time; and All the time God is good!” This is my new mantra. God has been so good to me and I am so blessed with church, family, friends, and home. Hope to hear from all of you soon at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
