Hello, family and friends! How great and wonderful it is to be with you one more time. The Lord has allowed us to see one more day; with everything going on, to God be the Glory! For this is the day the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it!
You know that March 24 was Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday is a Christian holiday that falls on the Sunday before Easter. What is Palm Sunday, and why do we celebrate it? Palm Sunday honors Jesus Christ’s victorious entry into Jerusalem. While this was a joyful, special occasion for his followers, this event took place toward the end of his days on Earth before being crucified. Palm Sunday is commonly celebrated by the blessing and distribution of palm branches or the branches of other native trees representing the palm branches the crowd scattered in front of Christ as he rode into Jerusalem.
Friday is Good Friday, the Friday before Easter Sunday. On this day Christians commemorate the death on the cross of Jesus Christ. Many Christians spend Good Friday in fasting, prayer, repentance, and meditation on the agony and suffering of Christ. On Sunday, March 31, most of us will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, as described in the New Testament. Visit a church of your choice this Sunday!
This week, hug your family members and let them know how much you love them. Even though my mother has gone to paradise, I will always have the hugs she gave me and the hugs I gave her in return. I remember one of my friends said, “Your family loves to hug.” I replied, “Yes, it is what we do because we are always glad to see each other!” So share a hug with someone today you love. If you are afraid to hug, give them a dap.
Speaking of family, last week, I received a very loving and sweet phone call from a lady I did not know at first. When I was in the classroom, I would sing with the children, “Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other is gold.” Yes, I have me a new friend, and it was a pleasure talking with her on the phone. This lovely Christian family moved from Clarksville to our little small town of Henderson almost a year ago. Mrs. Anna Ward, the City of Henderson would like to welcome you, your husband William and your two children to our hometown of Henderson. We are so proud you chose Henderson to make your home, and we pray that your stay will be a blessing.
The city of Henderson would like to say congratulations to Daisy McManus for making Class of 2024 Valedictorian and Jacob Mutter for making Class of 2024 Salutatorian. You have accomplished a great milestone! Keep up the great work!
On the prayer list this week is Ms. Valorie Griggs. Others on the prayer list include Valorie’s Uncle Clarence and her Mother Joann Cawthon. Pastor Ricky Anderson is in Jackson General Hospital. Please keep him up in prayer and pray for Wille Roy Whitfield. Pray for the Dotson family. Patty Dotson’s husband Dwayne Dotson passed away on Friday. Please continue to pray for Ms. Linda Burton, Mrs. Ingram, the President of the United States, our children, teachers and families, our men and women who are serving our country, our first responders, the incarcerated and anyone you may know who may need prayer.
Remember 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, or call and leave your message. If you have something nice, pleasant or enjoyable that happened in your life, please let me know. HAVE A BLESSED EASTER AND A GREAT WEEK! LOVE YOU!

Hello from Enville! I hope everyone is having a good and safe week. Hopefully, Spring Break is going well for our Chester County students and faculty. If you and your family are traveling, I pray for safe travels, some will be hanging out and sleeping in, and some kids will be working, like our grandsons. We did not plan a spring break trip, as we will be vacationing in the summer. Nicole and Blake enjoyed a short getaway over the weekend in Nashville. Brayden opted to stay home. We had Reece with us all weekend, and we stayed at the camper some; we love it when she spends time with us!
This is the last week of March. It has passed so quickly. This week is Holy Week, which begins on Palm Sunday when Jesus entered Jerusalem. The rest of the week is Holy Monday (Jesus freed the sacrificial animals and cleansed the temple), Holy Tuesday (Jesus taught at the temple), Holy Wednesday (a disciple named Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus for pieces of silver), Maundy Thursday (the Last Supper with the disciples, Jesus washes their feet), Good Friday (Jesus was crucified on a cross. Darkness covered the whole earth), Holy Saturday (Jesus rested in the tomb) and Resurrection Sunday (Jesus is risen! His death, burial and resurrection paid for our sins and gives all who believe in Him eternal life). There will be Good Friday services at many churches in the area. Many churches will have Easter Sunrise Services. Sanford Hill Baptist Church’s will be at 6:45 a.m. on Sunday out by the crosses; there will be coffee, juice and donuts. Please make plans to attend church services on Easter Sunday.
Our prayer list this week is for Lisa Bishop, Robert and Linda Johnson, Mary Lee Guyon, Agnes and Robert Smith, Tera O’Neal, Harold and Janice Maness, Ashley Pugh, Ann Pugh, Shirley Hampton, Della Mixon, Emily Freeman, Anita Needler, Kaye Killingsworth, Mary Lou Avent, Tim and Tabitha Hampton, Mike Frank, Mike Pugh, Jeff Finley, Rick Ooley, James Vinson, Jimmy Robertson, Mike Finley, Lee Trice, Clint Murley, Justin Godsey, our firefighters, first responders, law enforcement, healthcare workers, military, all who have lost loved ones and, as always, each other.
Happy birthday wishes go to Easton Glover on March 30, Siraka Bishop on April 1 and Savannah Middleton and Brooke Lutz on April 3. Happy anniversary to D.B. and Pat Weatherington on March 30 and Keith and Stephanie Middleton on April 3. We hope you all enjoy your special day!
If you want to rent the community center, call Pat Cates at 688-5125, or if you have news, call me at 608-3058.
Be sure and do not let anyone “April Fool” you on April 1.
Have a blessed week everyone!

Hello to all from this little corner of the world. The skies were blue, and it was windy on Saturday. It was 56 degrees and felt like 53. Rain and temperatures will be up and down this next week, but the Easter weekend is supposed to be pretty per the current forecast. People are beginning projects, whether for the home or outside. It is nice to have plans, but sometimes, we just have to go with the flow and do what we can when we can.
Here we are again – another school break. I know the kids and staff look forward to these short breaks. I, as a parent, enjoyed our boys being home for a break. I hope everyone has an enjoyable Spring Break, and when you go back, it is all downhill. Stay safe.
Remember the Lord’s sacrifice as Sunday arrives. I cannot imagine living a life without knowing Him. God bless.
Congratulations to FHU Lions on making it to the final site for the second year. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Just remember the fun and good times you had, and if you are not graduating, there will be next year. Also, congratulations to Daisy McManus on achieving Valedictorian and Jacob Mutter on achieving Salutatorian at Chester County High School for the 2024 year. It was very close between the two. I wish you both much success and happiness.
We will be having our Easter musical “Man of Sorrows, King of Glory” at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, March 30, and Sunday, March 31, at Friendship Baptist Church, 720 New Friendship Rd. Beech Bluff, TN 38313. Come worship our Risen Savior with us. There will be only the musical during these nights. We look forward to seeing you there. You will be blessed.
Condolences to those who have lost loved ones.
Happy birthday to Marla Kirk, 3-24; Lauren Lofton, 3-27; Jan Priddy, 3-28; Karsyn Knipper, Bro. Glenn Harris and Ann Pusser, 3-30; Jennifer Williams, 4-1; and Claire Garrison, 4-1.

Glen and Judy Harris, LaDawn Hayes, Danny Hodges, Shirley Kendrick, Justin Lindsay, Doris McKinney, Martha Mainord, Kenneth Maness, Deana Morris, Jim and Sue Newsom, Cissy and Tom Nichols, Julia Parchman, Beth Plunk, Trudy Powers, Pam Priddy, Ridge Ray, Karon Reinmann, Cathy Sisson, Jacob Thomas, Kevin Thurman, Lee Trice, Tony Tucker, Cammi Walls, Adam Wise, Katherine Wyatt, Mike Young and the families of Melba Seaton and Donna Johnson. Also, pray for our military, law enforcement, our country and first responders.
“Easter” by Helen Steiner Rice – “After the Lord was crucified/Even the ones who scoffed and denied/Knew that something had taken place/That nothing could ever remove or erase/For hope was born in the soul of man/and faith to believe in God’s master plan/Stirred in the hearts to dispel doubt and fear/And that faith has grown with each passing year/For the hope of man is the Easter story/And life is robbed of all meaning and glory/Unless man knows that he has a goal/And a resting place for his searching soul.”
“Then said Jesus, Father forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.” – Luke 23:34
I pray you all have a wonderful week and may it be filled with love, joy, peace and blessings. Remember: if you have news, please email me at mimmiepots@gmail.com. I would truly appreciate any news. People from here and those who have moved from our area but still want to keep in touch through the newspaper are hungry for news from home.
Until next week, Happy Trails to You.
