Patchwork

by donna smith ammons

I am eagerly anticipating the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl. I’ve always loved football…from watching games with my Dad to playing powder puff games in high school and in college to cheering for the PRC Wildcats, who were the 1969-1970 Mississippi Junior College Champions!! In high school I was fortunate enough to meet several members of the exhibition team of the New Orleans Saints. They put together a basketball team and traveled to Picayune, Mississippi to take on our coaches. I stood in line at halftime with hundreds of kids to get their autographs—Billy Kilmer, Danny Abramowiz, John Gilliam and Joe Wendryhoski. Still have them, pasted in a scrapbook!!

Remembering When. . .

by Lola Russell

 

A while ago I was asked to pray for a family that is going through a rough patch. They are suffering from the loss of a job, and health problems as well. As I pondered about their situation I began to think about the trials and stressful situations in my past and how prayer and faith has brought me to this point in time.

Patchwork

Hubby-dear mentioned his concern about me being addicted to Facebook several months ago. He alleged that every time he looked at me, I was busy scrolling and finding out all the news from my large number of “friends.” He was right. Facebook is how I keep connected. A large amount of information travels into my account and I diligently read it all and comment on most posts. One thing I really like about Facebook is the crazy tests that pop up, like “What Disney Character are you?” or “What color is your aura?” Just last week, I discovered that I was my cousin, Dawn’s evil twin!! I certainly didn’t need Facebook to tell me that!

Patchwork

By Donna Smith ammons

It was the day of the Sugar Bowl 2016 and the Ole Miss Rebels had already been practicing in New Orleans, readying for the big game. On the other side of the ball, Oklahoma State had also arrived in the Big Easy. Pam and John Toliver, church friends, were also in New Orleans with their family, catching the sights. She posted several photos—one of two buses, representing each team—for me. I think she may have even yelled a Hotty Toddy !

Remembering When. . .

by Lola Russell

 

My Christmas holidays ended at 10:45 on Sunday morning the 27th of December when my son came by for a brief visit before he left to go back home to Austin. All the fun and merriment, the good food, games, movies, and recalling other happy moments from Christmas past came to an end.

Patchwork

This year is the year of organization. It’s past time to clean out closets, organize my books and toss out things I don’t need. Making the decision on what to keep and what to throw away will be a major ordeal for me because I am a real packrat!! I hate to throw things away because I’ve convinced myself that someday I might need them.

Every Christmas I start early wrapping presents. Early for me is about two weeks out. This year, I kept to my schedule, but discovered that I should have started much earlier. I got all of my wrapping paper out, bought extra tape and a few bags of pre-made bows. One of the upstairs rooms became my wrapping room.

Patchwork

This has been an unusual, different holiday in our home. The sons, their wives and three wonderful and active grandchildren came a week early to celebrate with us. Thankfully, we had a great time…eating in Natchitoches and seeing the Christmas lights with Paul and Lexie; celebrating Christmas with presents, a scrumptious ham dinner and then seeing the glory of Hodges Gardens’ lights and displays and Christmas on Main with Davy, Kt, Riley Kate, Braeden and Darby. When Braeden spotted Santa, he stopped and just looked at him. He turned and looked at his parents and then took off running right into Santa’s arms!! My heart was suddenly full of love and tears glistened in my eyes.

Random Ramblings

by Daniel Jones

As some know, I love ridiculous news stories. Well, one of the most ridiculous of the week not involving flags is the case of Woodland, North Carolina, where the town council rejected a proposal to rezone a section of land to manufacturing from residential/agricultural. The reasoning by the townspeople is what becomes funny. Resident Mary Hobbs told them that her property is now worth less, which is a reasonable concern.
