God certainly answered some of my prayers this past week. I lost my emergency necklace several weeks ago and I finally found it this week. Of course, it was right where I'd left it. I thought I'd already looked there but I guess I hadn't looked well enough. There are still many on my lists though that still need prayers. Our sympathy goes to the Rhodes family for the death of Terry Mathews. Libby Stone is in the Mayo Clinic seeing several doctors.
The De Soto Baptist church will be having a brown bag lunch this coming Sunday, Dec. 18 and we will have a special visitor in the pulpit. At 7 p.m. Sunday night we will be having the annual Christmas cantata. This past Sunday we had the pleasure of watching the children and youth perform. They sang many special songs and had some speaking parts too. Tami Reeves did an excellent job directing the group. We are also collecting socks and bars of soap for the Veteran's Hospital this coming Sunday.
The De Soto Methodist church has been busy as usual. This past Saturday they had their annual Breakfast with Santa and Parents' Day Out event and on Sunday they had their Christmas play before worshiping at Hillside Village that afternoon. This coming Sunday they will have their Christmas cantata.
Those celebrating birthdays this week are: Donna Gulley; Gene Gower; Caitlin Weese; Danny Lane; Tyler Collins; Chris Berola; Spencer Karashin; Ed Wilcox; Gayle Moriarity; Leland Jones; Edwin Cox and my grandson Harrison Williams.
