With the children back in school, stores open, and everyone seems to be in a hustle again, just please don’t forget to take a moment to say hello to your neighbors. It means so much to know that you are cared about. Check in on your neighbors this weekend. Let us all remember how important it is to feel like people care, so return the favor to your own neighbors, ok?
I have had many people checking in on me and I really appreciate it. The right foot is about healed and they will be doing surgery on the left foot next week. It is painful, but necessary. We have had a lot of people sick lately. I know that the owner of Wiley’s has been under the weather too. She has had several hospital stays and still under a doctor’s care. Join me and continue to pray for her health! Also, continue to lift Nick and Brenda Sudzum up in your prayers, too. They have had a rough year and are praying that 2008 will be a better year for all. People seem to misjudge the power of prayer. God is still into miracles, it is us who stepped back and stopped asking for them. We must get back into the principles that this country was found on! It is time to stand up and fight for what we believe. I heard a song this past weekend that was recorded by Diamond Rio and I don’t know why it is not being played on the radio, but it is called “In God We Still Trust.” After watching the video and listening to the words to the music, all I could say was ‘AMEN and AMEN!’ If you want to hear this song, send me an email and I will send it to you. It is really a beautiful song and my challenge is to get the radio stations to play this song… after all, we claim that in God we still trust, don’t we?
It’s that time again! It’s time for PTO’s Trivia Night at the Sharon School Gym. Saturday, Feb. 2, beginning at 6 p.m. Each team will consist of six to eight players, with 20 categories and five questions in each category. Cory Sawyers will be the Trivia host for the evening. The cost is $5 per person, with food and fun available for the whole family. Come on out and plan to eat supper with us. Door prizes will also be given out! For more information, call Donetta Davis at 456-2901.
The Sharon Dulcimers have resumed practice. They meet every Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. at the Sharon Senior Center. Practice is weekly unless otherwise posted. Come on out and join the fun. You might even be the missing part of the Hee Haw Gang!
Be sure you stop in at the Sharon Library and check out the display of those in our community playing sports! I don’t know everyone in the pictures, but it was fun trying to guess who they were. Stop in and say hello to Mrs. Marlow Peters and see what is new at the library.
Basic computer classes for beginners will be offered at the Sharon Library from 9:30-11 a.m. Wednesdays and Fridays for three weeks, Feb. 6-22. Russell Cook, director of Adult Services at the C. E. Weldon Library, will teach the classes. Registration is necessary so call the Sharon Library at 456-2707 to sign up for classes.
Our grandson Vance Bradberry has a birthday Jan. 14, and he is turning 18! The Sharon community wishes you a very happy birthday!
Well, for today, that is “all the news that is news” from the Sharon community. Remember to continue to pray for the military, your neighbors, and that God will have mercy on our land!
