With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, have you started thinking about what to do for your Sweetheart? Time seems to be moving so fast. It is hard to believe that one month of 2023 has come and gone. Make lasting memories every chance you get with family and friends because you never know when someone’s time is coming to an end.
If you care about this community, please get involved in what is taking place to continue to grow our county and make it a better place to live and raise a family. Every voice can count when you need to be heard. Get to know what is changing in our local government, schools, churches and communities through the news, friends, your church, teachers, etc., and if it matters to you, there are ways to help make things better. The Community Center Meeting will be at 6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 6. We will be discussing events to add to our 2023 year calendar and start some planning as well as needs for the center. We are providing a soup/sandwich meal for this meeting. We need more community involvement for our center and would like to invite people to join in. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend. We would like to get 2023 off to a great start. Annual renewal dues are $25 after your first initial year of joining. We also take donations. Payments can be mailed to Edith Sills at 4475 Sunshine Rd, Henderson, TN 38340. We appreciate all our members and would like to have more events if we can get enough help to do so. Call Ann or myself if you have any new ideas for the center or wish to get involved. People who want to rent the community center should contact Betty Cooper at 879-9078 for booking.
Montezuma sends out happy birthday wishes to Garrett Hathcock on Feb. 2, Emmarie Phelps on Feb. 3, Vicky Finley and Michelle Newsom on Feb. 5, Krista Cook, Tim Wooley and Buddy Richardson on Feb. 6, Jeremy Cook and Nicole Wooley on Feb. 7 and Lynn Cook and Eddie Morton on Feb. 8. I would like to send out a special prayer request for my dear friend and classmate Janeane Moore. She asked me to share her situation. Janeane has recently been diagnosed with uterine cancer and will be undergoing surgery for a hysterectomy on Feb. 14. She does not know at this time if the cancer is all contained within the uterus or not or what stage the cancer is. We that are believers know how powerful prayer is and what it can do for people. I already feel through my prayers that God’s hand of protection is with her, and I hope you will join me in praying for Janeane and her family as she goes through this season in her life.
Please be in prayer for all elected local and federal officials as decisions are being made, law enforcement, first responders, healthcare workers, teachers and administrators; with all the upside down happenings in our world around us, pray daily. There is much spiritual warfare with society accepting things that go against who God is and what HIS laws are that we are to follow. Every day of life has its challenges, but if we look to God for the right path, it can be a good one. Please pray for those suffering from the flu, COVID and other seasonal illnesses and Kenneth Burkhead, Joann Fowler, Janice Morris, Dot Smith, Lisa Bishop, Jeanette Walker, Paul Schilling, Jennifer Paton, Nancy Crouse, Martha Cooper, Jake Richardson, Ann Morrison, Faye Crouse, and others that are sick or healing. We especially want to remember the families of Richy Butler, Elecia Ellis (friend and classmate of mine), James Gilbert Stout, Benny Dewayne Henley Parker, Tristin Armstrong and other families that have recently lost loved ones.
