If you haven’t heard yet, there is a great chance of cooler weather coming our way. This is great news. Maybe the grasshoppers will disappear with this cool front.

I am not sure but I thought I saw a few geese going over our house on Saturday morning. My grandson, Colby, immediately asked if they were in a “V.” I said no, that is why I wasn’t sure. Would like to think that Fall is fast approaching. I know the dove hunters are out in full force. Hearing shots every afternoon.
I would like to start out by expressing my thanks to everyone who has donated clothes to our Clothes Sale. Brashear Baptist loaded my truck up and we so appreciate their contribution. We will officially stop collecting clothes Thursday to get everything ready for the Sale. Please do not forget to tell everyone who needs clothes-Saturday, Aug. 23, First Methodist Church. Every item is priced to sell at 25 cents. Imagine clothes, shoes, backpacks and much more. Hope to see you there. Whoops, time is 8 a.m. to noon.
Wow, what a difference with a cold front coming in, the north wind in August is simply wonderful. Hope you are getting out for a day or two and enjoying the balmy like weather. By this weekend, I think we may be back in the 100s. After all, it is August.
School is about to start and there are a lot of things going on. First, get used to school zone speeds again. I know this is hard but you can do it. Next, if you have school-age children their school start times and dismiss times have changed somewhat at nearly all of the schools. It will pay to find out so that your children will not be late to school. Last, please take the time to pray for everyone involved in teaching our future generation. It couldn’t hurt.
I guess you will get one more reminder from me about our Clothes Drive and then Clothes Sale at First United Methodist Church. The Clothes Drive is from Aug. 11 through Aug. 25. Boxes have been set out by the Family Life Building for the Methodist Church and Brashear Baptist Church. If you have some gently used clothes that you would like to donate, please put in the boxes or call and I will be glad to pick them up. The actual sale is on Aug. 23. The time set will be 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. I would love for you to come by and see what this is all about. This is a coming together of a community to help those who do not have make a good start on the new school year. Remember that everything costs 25 cents. Not a better deal in town.
I would like to also let you know that Tom and I are starting our Divorce Care on Sept. 7. It will be on a Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. (tentatively). After meeting, we may decide on a better time. Divorce Care is a 13 week study on divorce. Each week in an independent unit so that you can miss a week and pick right up when you come back. Please call Tom at 903-413-1673 for more information.
I would like to send a late Happy Birthday to my friend, Sharon Moore. It looked like she had a great birthday with a trip and a nice lunch and shopping with her in laws. Happy Birthday, Sharon.
Brashear Free Library has a new Bible, a Serendipity Bible, in it. Please take for yourself or share it with someone you know who could use one. Some new children books are in there too. Thanks to those who are putting these in for our young readers.
You all know how much I love P31. Well we have said good bye to our past trainer, Shayelynn Emerick. She will be missed. Our new trainer is Jennifer Caudle. So if you know Jennifer, be sure to wish her luck on this new endeavor. Or better yet, come and join us. Working out with others is such fun. I have made some new friends that I feel that I am blessed to call my friends.
