Gordonsburg/Little Swan News
February 4, 2021
Still scattered showers around the area from day to day and most days saw very little sunshine for long periods of the time. There was even some sleet on Saturday and then Sunday late evening. Light snow was sprinkled around on the rooftops and trampolines in the area on Monday, but, even though it was in the low thirties most of the day, the snow left quickly. Hope this does not mean six more weeks of cold snowy weather. My buttercups and tulips are up and some people even have some that have bloomed. Some days the temperatures have been in the forties and even fifties, but the wind has been so cold that it seems colder and it seems to blow right through you.
Those who are sick or shut-in and in need of prayers for whatever the need: David and Joyce Barnes, G.Y. Bennett, Connie Bonner, Barbara Brown, Burrell Brown, Dorothy Brown, Amy Carroll, Betty Carroll, Dorothy Carroll, Joann Carroll, Kathleen Carroll, Quentin Carroll, Mary Ann Churchwell, Spencer Clark, Fada Clay, Billy Cothran, Marian Dryden, Rusty Dupont, Larry Evans, Teresa Garland, Helen Hardin, Christy Hinson, Tom Hornal, Mickey James, Monette King, Wendy McKnight, Nicki Lewis, Donna Owens, Lisa Rawdon, Mona Runions, Nell Skelton, Tammy Stutts, Freddie Sublett, Jim and Jan Walker, Jim Webb, Annette Williams, Doug Williams, and Margie Willis.
Please continue to pray for our nation that it will heal from this virus which has so long disrupted our lives in many ways, including death to some of our loved ones and for peace in our world.
Happy birthday to Sherry Clayton February 4th, Lee Carroll and Wendy Runions February 6th, Jeremy Odom February 7th, Shasta Carroll February 9th, Amanda Polan, Kaylie Webb and Robbie Carroll February 10th, and Pat Johnston and Marty Carroll February 11th. Wishing these many more happy days to celebrate life and hope they have a great birthday.
We express sympathy to the families of John Priddy, Nolan Beatrice Shinn, James Donald “Don” Brewer, Peggy Faye Bartlett Mayberry, Robert Lester Lambert, Thelma Christine Jenkins, Paul M. Bridges, Ruth Claud Reece, James Wilson Curl, and Wilma Joyce Keathley. Prayers for these families and any other families who have lost loved ones.
My prayers are for your family to have a great month as we start February of the year 2021. Hopefully, you will be blessed with health and happiness and be able to do those things you enjoy doing. The past several months, almost a year, we have not been able to go and do the things we enjoy if it involves being around a crowd of people.But now, it seems it is getting better and most churches are back to having regular services and even some events that have been skipped.
Remember those who are less fortunate, especially those in the nursing facilities as they cannot have visitors as usual. Some are still quarantined and unable to see anyone except those who care for them daily. We can send cards and even, in some cases, call those who are shut-in. Let us not forget them as we could be in the same situation sometime.
