Hello to everyone! For this is a new day and a new week. The chill of fall is in the air. We have had some nice, cool days. This is my favorite time of the year. I hope you had a wonderful week. My family and I had a great one.
Well, fall break is over, and by now some parents are saying, “Thank God! It’s about time! Why do we have a fall break?” There are others who said, “I am not ready for my child to go back; we had a great time on the break, so let’s start planning for the next break!” Some children were glad to return while others were not. Either way, the children are back in school and are hard at it, preparing themselves for the future. While some do not realize it, these are the best days of their lives! If only I could turn back the hands of time when I was home with my parents…now, both of my parents are resting with the Lord.
This is a shout out to all our teachers. I know this is not Teachers Appreciation week; that is in May, but we have some awesome teachers here in Chester County! To our teachers, we appreciate you and thank you for teaching our children. We realize you must enjoy what you do because the pay is not that great, and all the sickness we have in the school does not help at all! You all are the BEST, and the City of Henderson wants you to know it. We do not have to wait until the month of May arrives to let our teachers know how much we appreciate them! The best teachers simply enjoy teaching. It takes special people to be teachers! Keep up the great work! Better days are coming. THANK YOU!
Sometimes, we may ask the question, “Why me, Lord?” There are so many bad things happening in our world today and bad things happen to good people, but I do believe that there are still more good things happening around us than bad! So be encouraged and know that the Lord will not put more on us than we can bear. God’s Word says, “All things work for the good for those that love the Lord….” Some of us have learned to live our lives based on that promise.
I know one lady that is giving God the glory! On Oct. 4, 2022, she had surgery and is praising God for letting her see another year! Ms. Valerie Griggs, we are praising the Lord with you! God is a God that will never leave or forsake us!
Well, next month is November, the month of Thanksgiving. Just remember that the Lord loves us and we are to give thanks every day of our life, friends and family. Because if he did not love us, He would not have given up His Son for us! So, my friends, be kind and love one other and remember that the Lord made us all!
On our birthday list this week: Lola Bynum and Cheryl Conder on Oct. 26; we pray the Lord will bless you with many more! Have a Happy Birthday!
On our prayer list: our loved ones who are in the hospitals, those sick in their homes, our children, teachers and families and the men and women who are serving our country. Remember to pray for our United States of America.
Do not forget to patronize with our local businesses here in town; let us try to support our own as much as we can. If you live in the City of Henderson and have news about your family, birthday, anniversary, announcements, and things happening in the City, I need to hear from you, text me at 608-6132.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
