Hello to everyone! I hope you had a great week. For this is the day the Lord has made be happy, enjoy it. Well, another month is gone, ending with fall celebrations like Halloween and Harvest Day. November is here. People are getting ready to complete the annual ritual of “falling back,” as we move away from Daylight Saving Time this weekend. Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 5, which means you will need to turn your clocks back an hour before you go to bed on Saturday night, Nov 4. Have you ever wondered why 2 a.m.? According to Live Science, the 2 a.m. time was selected because it was deemed to be the least disruptive to most people’s lives. Almost everyone is at home asleep; bars and restaurants have likely closed; and few businesses are impacted by the extra hour. You know that was the lifestyle back in the 1900’s! Here is my thought…we do not have anyone picking cotton, working in the fields, etc. Now, we have air conditioned tractors and a machine that picks and rolls cotton into bales. So…why do we need to fall back? I personally wish it would stay the same all year round!
November is also American Diabetes Month and National Adoption Month. November 11 is Veterans Day, and on Thursday, Nov. 23, we will celebrate Thanksgiving Day. This is a time when family, friends and loved ones can come together and give thanks for each other along with enjoying a good meal.
Our condolences go to the family of Mrs. Annette Croom Horton. Annette will be missed but never forgotten; we are praying for the family.
At this time, I need to say, “Thank you,” to my dear sweet husband Mr. Frank Holiday. On Oct. 26, he surprised his wife with a BIG birthday party, and I did not know anything about it. It was such a blessing, and all of my family knew and did not tell me. This year, I am 69 and doing fine! Next year, I will be 70. WOW! I do not know what my 70th birthday will be like, but one thing I do know is that the Lord has been good to me while I am on this earth! Thank you, honey, for such a wonderful birthday! Thank you to all who gave me cards, sent texts and wished me a Happy Birthday on the FB page. You are the best!
I heard that 1,600 or more were at the Gene Record Park on Oct. 28. All of the parents I spoke with just have great praise about how much their children enjoyed it. The games were great! The only slightly negative thing some parents said was that the clown was scary, but overall, they had a great time.
On the birthday list for this week is Crystal Moore, 10/29; Jacqueline Bingham, 10/30; Glorious Damron 10/31; Melissa Bay, 11/10; and Candace Cole, 11/11. We pray the Lord will bless you with many more!
On the prayer list is Mauriceo Beauragard Cox. He was in a bad car wreck and is in the hospital. Please keep him and his family in prayer. Also, remember the Croom/Horton family.
Thought for today – What God has chosen for you and only you to be and able to do is this: to love Him, those around you, and yourself. Part of loving well is resting well!
Remember to pray for our loved ones that are in the hospitals, for the ones that are sick in their homes, for our children, teachers and families and for the men and women who are serving our country. 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.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
