Happy May


Days we are in this month: 1st, 5th, 8th, 19th, 22nd 26th and 29th  10 a.m. to 4 p.m.


What a nice wet April we had. I finally got to put flowers on the graves and plant some perennials yesterday. Did you know May 1, 2 and 3 are no planting days? Pap used to say barn days but I think it was maybe burn days? If anyone knows write me back.


Our Jabez Spring Retreat was wonderful; one of the best. Everyone wanted to be there, we all sewed up a storm, played Bingo and enjoyed each other’s goodies. Many pictures were taken and we enjoyed having some new faces this year. The food was wonderful and so was the staff. Thanks to Sandy Wilson and Lil Burns for the wonderful devotions. We made plans for November and also next April.  Think about joining us at the next retreats!!
