I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful
weather and with Thanksgiving so near. Every year, if you notice, the weather
is pleasant. This year I believe the trees will hold their pretty coats
of red, brown and green.
I look at God’s glories, the beauties of this world he made for us. In his Word, he said the garden that is the world he made for man to dress it-make it beautiful-a place to live happily.
And how are we dressing the world God gave us/ In peace, love and obedience to his will? No! Alas, it is war and bloodshed. Every heart, mind and soul in trouble, grief and greedy power-seeking.
I pray to God to live to see peace and good will on earth-and the youth of our fair land enjoying their liberties.

Dad to bring the mail, a fine sweet woman like Mrs. Miller to serve cake and ice cream, a very talented little daughter to play sweet piano music. I could not help enjoying my visit to this home.
Our recent visitors were Mrs. J. T. Dudley,
Mrs. Nettie Mae Lewis, Clayton and Walter Lewis. Mrs. Florie Freeman and
little Judy Thompson.
Guess I’d better give
the readers a short story of my trip and visit with relatives and a few
special friends for the past two weeks. I stopped by with my daughter (to
visit), Mrs. John Fincher, of Atlanta, for a few days. We visited the Capitol
and many other places. I always visit Grant Park. Just love to see the
animals, flowers, etc. They have so many different, kinds of flowers from,
all over the world, especially cactus. Saw some baby lions, alligators,
Spent several days in Ducktown, Tenn., my sister, Mrs. J. M. Williams, the former Miss Clara Thompson, my niece, Miss Norma Thompson and I attended preaching at Methodist and Baptist churches.
The once barren hills and mountains of this country town have pines and grass growing on them. This was the result of work by the CCC boys.
In Tennessee I was on one mountain where one could see in seven states. The roads go around most of the mountains making curves all the time. If one could go straight thru, one mile would save three to six. These people seem to drive around curves as easy as we do straight roads. We saw scenery in both South and North Carolina. Some of the people are very kind but Tennessee people are very clever.
From Ducktown, I rode one bus 148 miles, then changed for a short ride on two more busses to Christians, Va., where my sister, Mrs. Tom Dudley, the former Miss. Cynthia Thompson, met me. It was 3 o’clock in the morning and I was worn out. After resting two days, we visited historic places and fine scenery. Some places in Virginia look very much like Georgia –good ol timber, some fine cattle and much pasture. In the mountain section are many springs over which the people build houses with the spring inside. It serves as an ice box. It is painted, sealed and real nice, especially inside. The water is ice cold. Milk and butter keep in here until its sold. Most every family sells some dairy product.
Visited several nurseries but saw none as pretty as Hastings. I enjoyed it all. The worry of the trip was worth being with loved ones, but, no place I’ve visited, including sunny Florida, I love as I do Middle Georgia. Everywhere has its sweet and bitter.
In our section we would like to see a rain. It would help cane, potatoes, fall gardens and settle the dust.
Our pastor, Rev. King,
filled his regular second Sunday appointment at Salem last Sunday. It being
Palm Sunday, he preached a sermon suited to the occasion to a large crowd
of attentive listeners, the music and singing was fine, with Mrs. Joyce
Thompson at the piano. Rev. King’s mother attended services along with
the rest of his family.
Several members and friends are sick. Mrs. Hortense Rowe, Mr. H. Wellington and Ed Brown. We trust that they will soon be restored to their health and will take the places in church and elsewhere again.
We enjoyed the short visit Sunday afternoon with Mr. and Mrs. S.B. Wynn, Thomas and Kenneth Wynn in their home.
Returning from a visit with our daughter, Mrs. J. W. Fincher at Douglasville, we found our daughter-in-law in bed with the mumps. My husband was trying to do the cooking and tend to a four month old baby, with plenty of noise. Grover and I were more than welcome home. While away we also visited places in interest in Douglas county and Atlanta.
Mr. and Mrs. E.B. Warren are visiting relatives near Glenwood.
