        Good morning all. I hope all had a good weekend.
        I went to church both times. It was real good to be there. Pat preached real good both times. The singing was real good too. We were glad to have Anita Jane (Langley) Brock and husband. We enjoyed a fellowship with Pat for Appreciation Day for our Pastor. One little boy said, “Pat says he can’t preach good, but he can”. So our little ones listen.
