“Watch out for big problems! But don’t forget the problem”
By Frances Brewer
Good morning. The phone began ringing time after time, no wasn’t a salesman but where, why and what. Well sometimes the early bird doesn’t get the worm. So here I go. Once again with tons of blessings and my cup filled to the brim and running over. Even though it seems as if more storms, my don’t your heart and concern go out to those who had lost everything; not only in storms, failure in house payments etc., but you know there’s an old hymn, in fact the Trinity Church choir sang just recently, “Be calm till the storm passes by.” Well, Tri-Bee don’t you begin a pity party! Well, no. Yet time in every situation is changing. Billfolds are not quite as hard to zip up. Why? Not about the political point of view. Well we’ll find out who wears the pants. As I have stated before, I have not been ordained! If I would take time to even say Lord may I do the way you want me to do, not the way I want to do. If I did what a mess our lives would be. Amen
Time does fly by but 34years ago this small church, Trinity Baptist, the doors were opened on June 16, six miles out of Madison on 441, and has been a growing church, and will have their homecoming Sunday, June 1, 10:30 a.m. No Sunday school, morning worship followed by fellowship, no evening services. Pastor Roberts has been the pastor for about four years. Looking forward to this time of fellowship.
Pastor Green the pastor of Bethany Church was with his family during the weekend. Ben Watson from the SOLM filled the pulpit.
Most all the churches will be busy with Vacation Bible school in the next few weeks. The Lord is so good and has a purpose in every aspect of especially these two classmates who are getting the best of attention, Georgie Carpenter and Martha Sue Harper. Martha Sue really perked up when her great-granddaughter arrived.

We three sisters, who are left of the Jubilee gang, Blanche, Jake, Nell and Frances, enjoyed the new Mexican Restaurant. Well what did you order? Don’t even know, looked kindly like a “wild mushroom,” filled with? Oh boy was it good. No recipe needed.
My next door neighbor Nancy Mitchell entertained a group of ladies from Covington with a Southern Living party in her home here on Barrows Grove Road on Friday night. I had the pleasure of attending and enjoyed meeting new friends.
Here we go getting back to the ill ones. Mary Larman is in TCU taking therapy following surgery. Oh yes Tri-Bee was an overnight guest at Morgan Memorial Hospital Probably it was corn cobs put in my ears, running me through somewhat like and sounded like a freight train, felt like clothes pins clamping all over, then what? Results? Plenty of brains just needed charging.
Rev. and Mrs. Howard Tillery, former pastor of Trinity Church, were overnight guests of Nell Porter on Sunday night and served lunch on Monday. Anyway I slipped in. Was the fish with all the trimmings good?
