Gordonsburg/Little Swan News

Series: Gordonsburg | Story 46

Just finished a week with lots of rain and many days of thunderstorms and tornado warnings, but thank the good Lord we didn’t have any in this immediate area. We send prayers for those in the areas where there was damage to personal property and death of loved ones. Saturday was the day that was the worst for thunderstorms. It started early in the morning about 4 a.m. and was off and on most of the day. The water got over the road in many places but on Little Swan from where I live you could not go toward Little Swan Church or to Highway 412 by Little Swan Creek Road from around noon to late evening because all roads had water over them. To get to the farm where my family lives, I had to go all the way around by Hwy. 412 which is about three times as far but that was okay, I could still get there. When I came home about 7:30 the water was off the road and I came the normal way.

Those who are sick or shut-in and in need of prayers for whatever the need: Burt and Sara Barber and family, David and Joyce Barnes, G.Y. Bennett, Connie Bonner, Dorothy Brown, Amy Carroll, Debbie Carroll, David Carroll, Joann Carroll, Kathleen Carroll, Mary Ann Churchwell, Spencer Clark, Fada Clay, Billy Cothran, Johnny Dryden, Polly Edwards, Larry Evans, Buffy Farnsworth, Teresa Garland, Helen Hardin, Christy Hinson Graves, Tom Hornal, Mickey James, Monet King, Jackie McFall, Shirley Reeves, Bill Runions, Mona Runions, Nell Skelton, Freddie Sublett, Donnie Teefataller, Jim and Jan Walker, Diane White, and Annette Williams. Although it seems to be some better, please continue to pray for our nation that it will heal from this virus that has so long disrupted our lives.

Happy birthday to Lily Carroll April 3rd, Mandy Hinson and Lucas Baker the 5th, Derrick Graves and Monica Dupont the 6th, and Crystal Lomax and Sarah Carroll the 7th; wishing for these many more happy days to celebrate life and hope they have a great birthday.

On Saturday afternoon Kaitlynn Tripp celebrated her birthday with family and relatives. Despite the threatening weather and sirens from town that we could hear going off, we still enjoyed the time celebrating her sixth birthday which was on Thursday. Her cake was a hit, which was made by Nicki Lewis and was like a Barbie doll with a doll in the center and tasted very good. There were hamburgers and hot dogs and other foods to eat and then ice cream and cake. The children had plenty of balloons and bubbles to play with and it had quit raining so the children got to play outside.

We express sympathy to the family of Harold Donald Compton, Gary Thomas Dotson, Floy Mai Gatewood, Terry Lynn James, Leon John Fuller, Gladys Marie Pulley, Clara Sue McNabb, and Gloria Pace Love. Prayers for these families and any other families that have lost loved ones.

With school being out this week, many are on vacation and doing things with family and having fun. Some of the Lewis County Girl Scouts are planning a camping trip for the last of the week and planning activities for the girls to do. We hope they have an enjoyable time camping in cabins at NACO. The girls plan on doing hiking and one night a bonfire where they can roast hotdogs, marshmallows and maybe even make s’mores. Hopefully the weather will be agreeable.

Sunday will be Easter. Hopefully we will remember why we celebrate this day and include Him in our festivities and activities. Many will come to church to show their new outfits but what will be better is if we come to show how much we love and respect Christ for what he did.

Praying you have a happy and healthy week and weekend and can spend time with your family and friends doing those things that you enjoy. Remember to be safe.
