Tomorrow afternoon, Jan. 13, the Faulkner County Singing Club meets at 1:30 p.m. at LifeSong Baptist Church in Greenbrier. The public is invited. Freddie Mark Wilcox is pastor.
I hope and pray 2013 will be a better year for all of us. May the leaders of our country trust in God and let Him lead in the way He would have us go.
Christmas time is a good time for people to show their love, more so. I have heard of so many good, kind deeds being done for different people during this time.
Frank and Mary Jo Tillery have also blessed our home with much kindness. We appreciate all of your prayers and calls.
Rosa Lee and Robert McElroy cooked and delivered Christmas dinner with all the trimmings to the home of her sister, Margaret Cupit in Conway, during the sleet and rain, and she appreciated this so much. Tara and Cara Collins also ate with them.
Our family had New Year’s Day dinner at noon with us. With the traditional meal of black eyed peas and hog jowl, ham, fried potatoes, fried cabbage, cornbread, rolls, casseroles and dessert made by Bart Sellers.
The great-grand kids asked, “PaPaw, do we have to wait for holidays to have homemade ice cream?”
Sherry and John brought lunch last Sunday after church for us. Then they took us for a drive before I had to go to the hospital. They and our son, Danny and wife Myrt, are really good and thoughtful to care for us.
Have a good week. Pray for me and others who need it. God is so good!

Coming up tomorrow (Jan. 13) is the first 2013 meeting of the Faulkner County Singing Club. It will convene at 1:30 p.m. with LifeSong Baptist Church in Greenbrier. As always, the public is invited.
Make another note that Centerville United Methodist Church is planning to host an annual get-together for the old Centerville School. Charles Freeman guided this meeting for many years at Woolly Hollow State Park, and we appreciate his leadership. We are planning, at least tentatively, to have this reunion the last Saturday in June on the Centerville Church grounds rather than at park facilities. More details will be given as they become available.
Attendance at Centerville United Methodist Church was down last Sunday but we did enjoy our monthly potluck. The ladies discussed our upcoming Bible Study and I am looking forward to getting that started. We have had such a good time with our Beth Moore studies in the past and did not even consider using another curriculum.
I was intrigued when I read about a newly released historical fiction book based on characters from the Centerville Community. “Dark Secrets,” by Nancy Glenn Powell, will be at Hastings in Conway for a book signing next Saturday from 1-3 p.m. This is the first of three historical fiction books written by Powell that will follow Powell’s mother, Ollie McNew (Glenn), who was born in 1908 on a farm in the area. I look forward to reading the book and making connections to the community that has such a special place in my heart.
