After rain, limb appears to be a snake, columnist gets gun
Spring is a busy time of year in Trinity-Bethany
Happy Spring, everyone! This Monday morning is beautiful and it looks like the whole week is going to be. My back yard looks like a jungle, so I hope I can do something about it soon and I hope I feel like doing something about it. After coughing my head off last Sunday night and taking everything I could find in the medicine cabinet, I went to the doctr first thing Monday morning. Raegan went earlier and she had tested positive for the flu, but I didn't, but whatever I had was such a close cousin to it, I couldn't tell the difference. He put me on Tamiflu anyway just in case. It still took me all week to get over it and I still have a leftover cough. It even put me in the bed but I couldn't help it, it was awful! It will really wear you out!
Nell Porter had a wonderful weekend where all of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren all gathered in Madison to celebrate her upcoming 85th birthday. It is not until later this month, but this weekend worked out to have everyone be able to come at one time. They all met at the Madison Chophouse after church on Sunday and then had a delicious and beautifully decorated birthday cake baked by her granddaughter which even had individual pictures of each family on the top. They all presented Aunt Nell with a photo book, which all of the family had contributed to which went back to the early days with her sisters and brothers, her days as a bride with Uncle Bill and all through the years as the children grew up, married and had families of their own. A lot of living and history goes into becoming 85 years old! She thoroughly enjoyed the day!

Greetings from The Springs. Hey, did you read the wonderful article about Willie Ann Johnson’s European Vacation? It seemed so fantastic! I bet she had a better time than the Griswolds!
USBC is hosting a Women’s Luncheon Saturday, April 13 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. If you come to Bible Study Wednesday night you can still get your name on the list. Each event hosted by the Women’s ministry is uniquely different so come and expect something special.
When you see Minister Derrick and Sister Wintress Worrell congratulate them for being the winners of the Marriage Game, which was played at our last Couples’ Ministry meeting. We had a lovely evening as we celebrated and uplifted our marriages. There is a different topic or activity at each meeting and we all have a great time. The next gathering will be held Saturday, April 27 at 5 p.m. in the fellowship hall.
Don’t get tired of me saying this but we are still on “Spiritual Gifts” in Wednesday Bible study. Pastor Terrell explained that we would be on this subject for a while. Since so many of us are seeking to know what our gifts are he is taking time and going into detail to help us. His has been a very eye-opening series and there is still time for you to join us if you want to learn more.
Pastor Terrell’s message on Sunday came from St. Luke 14: 12-22 and he reviewed the story of the lost son. This son asked his father for “the portion of goods that falls to me,” and he went out into the world to end up spending it all. Not until “he came to himself, after considering eating the slop that pigs ate, that his heart was changed.
Buckhead Baptist bids Rev. adieu
This is a notice to all members of the Buckhead Baptist Church. Sunday is the last day that the Rev. and Mrs. (Sandra) Les Roberts will be at your church. There will be a covered dish dinner to follow the service. He has done a wonderful job in the Lord ministering to you. This is a way to show your appreciation.
Last Saturday night there was a meet and greet the Rev. Dennis and Sonya Gardner. He preached both services on Sunday. The church voted to call him as their pastor. He lives in Greensboro and will begin his ministry near May 1.
The Buckhead Road Race was a great success. There were 92 participating in a 3.1 mile long race. The first place winner was Zach Massey who ran it in 19.26 minutes. Congratulations, Zach! The fire department had food. There was music. There were games, a raffle, and other things. The money from the raffle went to the Tiller family who lost their house to a fire. The parade had tractors and old cars and lots of fun. I understand that people want to have a repeat of this event for next year. So that says to me that it was a day of fun and much success. Here’s to next year!
The MCHS Dairy Judging team won first place at the University of Georgia Arena. Those on the team are Jay Moon, will Porter and Victoria Cagle and Claire Woodward. Because of this achievement they became Master 4-H’ers. Congratulations to each of you! They will be going to Wisconsin in October.
