Hello everyone. Hope everyone set clocks forward and got to church on time. Now to just get used to this time change. And, hopefully the weather can make up its mind soon.

Thought for today: Let God’s Word guard your heart and strengthen you. (Joseph Prince)

Ann and I attended the Tablescape at the Pell City United Methodist Church on Feb. 29. We sat at the table with Kay Hardwick King and Teresa Carden. At a nearby table, were Julie Allred, Linda O’Shaughnessy, Gail Comer, Judy Cole, Charles Smith and his helper, Jean, Pam Wilbanks, and Ginger Hodge. It was a full house and we saw many others that we knew. We enjoyed the food and the fellowship and the program.
