I have been thinking about how hope can bring much joy and happiness into our life.
If we hope for the best, then most often our hopes will come true.
It sometimes brings us showers of blessings, just when we need them most. A visit from a friend we haven’t seen in months, like just yesterday, when my friend Anna Lou Calkins came for a brief visit, taking time out of her busy day to see me.
A nice lady I had hoped would surely stop by if she could find me here
at Victorian Square. She did.
Alma Kilgo Moore recently passed away in Centinela Medical Center in Inglewood, Calif.
Service was held for her at Panuel Missionary Baptist Church, where she was a faithful member.
Alma was a resident of Harriman, so they had a service for her here at Evans Mortuary on Tuesday, May 1. The Roane County Community Chorus provided the music, and Margie Moore sang a solo. The Rev. James Guthrie gave the eulogy.
Visiting the Early Morning Coffee bunch last Monday was Carl Farmer. We study the Bible at 10 a.m. each Monday at St. Mary’s Baptist Church. The Rev. Jesse Williams is the instructor. Everyone is welcome.
Our deepest sympathy is extended to the family of Charles Salon, who recently passed away in Oak Ridge Methodist hospital. He was a dear friend of Herbert Griffin, and both were members of the Masonic Lodge.
For the dedicated gardener anywhere, the likely spot to plant something and anything is a container.
It is not necessary to have an acre of land to have a garden. You can have a garden in a flowerpot.
For millions of people, even a small plot of land is not available. There are those who live in apartments, people who live on houseboats, people whose occupations keep them on the road in campers or mobile homes, so container gardening is the perfect answer.
As a matter of fact, the size of our gardens in general is shrinking.
