All she wants for Christmas is to help her friend: selling cookies for Savannah
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
She only wanted two things for Christmas, and one of them isn’t even for her. Ariana Crefeld, a home-schooled first grader in Mt. Juliet, told her mom Andrea that she only wanted two things for Christmas: an American Girl doll and to give money to her friend Savannah Swandal, who has Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, a form of cancer. Ariana said she wanted to have a cookie sale to raise money for Savannah’s family. “I knew that no matter how busy I was, this was a time to drop everything that I thought was important and invest into the heart of my little girl,” Andrea said. “What a great opportunity to develop in her a heart for serving people.” So Andrea, Ariana and her little sister, Naveya, set up the charity cookie sale for Saturday, December 19, in Willoughby Station, a Mt. Juliet subdivision. They sent out flyers, made 630 cookies, and hoped the “little cookie sale” would raise several hundred dollars. “Even though it was a very cold and windy day the cookie sale was overwhelmingly successful,” Andrea said Monday. “It was amazing to see the love and the generosity of the many people who came. We were busy from the time we were setting up to five minutes after 1 p.m. when we finished. One gentlemen asked Ariana for 1 cookie and a cup of hot chocolate and wrote a check for $1000.00! The generosity of the people in the area has been amazing!” Andrea said “the money is still coming in,” and they don’t have an exact total on how much money was raised – via the bake sale and donations – yet. “We hope to finish up most of the collection and give it to them on Christmas day,” she said. “We are so

It was such an amazing day!” Ariana said that she hopes her friend “fights cancer and doesn’t have it again. I hate cancer.” “I want to grow up and be a pediatrician and find the medicine that helps cancer,” the six year old said. “Thank you everyone for coming to my cookie sale.” Savannah was diagnosed with cancer in 2006 at the age of five, and she is currently fighting Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma for the third time.

Concerned citizens start petition for more/improved fire protection in MJ
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
According to information from the U.S. Fire Administration, an estimated 128,700 fires in the month of December account for 415 deaths and 1,650 injuries. In December, 72 percent of structure fires occur in residential buildings. The leading cause of December residential building structure fires involves cooking. The use of traditional adornments such as Christmas trees and decorations provide additional points of ignition that increase the incidence of holiday fires. Fires can start from many points, such as candles burning too close to a Christmas tree or curtains, overloaded electrical systems, malfunctioning heaters or cooking fires – and that’s just during the holiday season. Homes built close to one another are kindling for fires to jump from one house to another, threatening dozens of families, individuals, and pets. Without adequate fire protection and personnel, entire subdivisions and business complexes can go up in smoke within hours. The outcry for additional fire protection and professionally trained 19, “have agreed upon to N e i g h b o r h o o d s , B e l i n d a personnel in Mt.

Upon doing so, it will be forwarded to the city mayor, city leaders, etc.” As far as leaders go, Pendergraft said District 1 Commissioner Jim Bradshaw represents the Del Webb area, but Pendergraft has not spoken with his personally. “His reputation is that he votes ‘no’ on issues before him, such as the fire service issue or topic,” Pendergraft said. He added that he may approach Bradshaw personally about the issue “maybe at election time.” For more information or to sign the petition for better and more fire protection in Mt.

Christmas with a Cop helps needy kids for 5th year

The Mt. Juliet Police Department sponsored less fortunate children by taking them Christmas shopping in its 5th annual Christmas with a Cop program on Friday, December 11. Many items, such as toys and clothing, were purchased at Wal-Mart in Mt. Juliet. To gather funding for the event, MJPD teamed up with HDP Motorcycle Shop and raised over $5,400 through a sale of used televisions. Christmas with a Cop continues to grow every year, according to MJPD Community Policing Director Cpl. Tyler Chandler, since the program began in 2005. This year the MJPD sponsored 28 children, up five from last year. The children were selected with the help of local schools, community leaders and officials at the police department, and ranged in age from 2 to 17 years old. Each officer had $175.00 to spend on a child during the shopping spree, which was a $25.00 increase over last year’s amount. Above, Cmdr. Michael Mullins helps a child pick out a new pair of shoes. ~ Photo submitted

Local Opinions
MJ Help Center thanks Mt. Juliet for its generosity
Dear Editor: We are blessed to live in the United States; we are twice blessed to live in Mt Juliet, TN. We set our goal this Thanksgiving for baskets for 200 of our clients. We asked the churches, community and individuals to help us help others. Once again Mt Juliet stepped up and took care of the needy. There are not words to tell you how much this blessing means to us that deal with the needy every day. Our numbers are over twice what they were last The Mt Juliet Noon Rotary Club made a financial contribution to the Mt. Juliet Help Center in a presentation in November. Pictured are Mary Bacon, left, and Mt. Juliet Noon Rotary Club President Mark Hinesley. ~ Photo submitted year. Your hearts are tuned into the downtrodden. Our next challenge for Mt Juliet is to ask that you help us build a bigger Help Center, so that we will be able to have a place to store extra food and clothing. I will be leaving as president of the board in January. As long as I live and have breath I will volunteer at the Help Center. I’m not resigning, it’s just time I let someone else hold the rains. I would like to concentrate on that new center. Won’t you help me as we move into 2010 start that building fund? I know I’m asking a lot, but God has blessed us with so much and He will bless those that give. I know He will. He has proved it over and over. May we all count our blessings and give the glory to God who’s shovel is bigger than yours and mine. I pray that God will bless us all in the coming months and years. May you and yours have a great holiday. Thanks again, Mary Bacon, President Board of Directors of

Writer says MJ needs curbside recycling opportunity
Dear Editor, The City of Mount Juliet does not have a recycling service in addition to regular trash collecting services. This is an outrage and needs to be fixed! Recycling is a very important aspect in helping the environment. I moved here a few years ago from Arizona where they had recycling along with the regular trash bins that were picked up each week. It came as a shock to me that this is not done in Tennessee. My family and I bought about four different trash bins and separate all of our recycling ourselves. Then we have to load up our car, which makes if very dirty, and drive to a recycling center. Most people think doing it yourself is too much of a hassle and end up not recycling at all. If we had curbside recycling more people would participate. Since the entire world is trying to do their part in helping this wonderful earth we live on, it is time Mount Juliet joined the rest of our nation and start requiring recycling. We have to begin somewhere. Why not start with this small easy step? Sincerely, Alexis Adams Mt. Juliet

Correction:
There was an error in last week’s city commission article pertaining to an amendment to the CNS zoning of a convenience store on Nonaville Road. The ordinance was denied, with District 1 Commissioner Ted Floyd and District 2 Commissioner voting to approve the amendment. The ordinance included the store on Nonaville Road only. For more information or a copy of the minutes contact Mt. Juliet City Hall at 615-7542552. The Chronicle regrets the error and is happy to set the record straight.

W. Division Pedestrian and Bikeway Project plans unveiled, may proceed
By Renee Dotson Freelance Writer
The December 17 Mt. Juliet planning commission meeting was called to order at 6:36 pm, with another short and sweet agenda set for the evening. Gary Hawkins of Hawkins Partners went before the commission with a presentation for the West Division Pedestrian and Bikeway Project. This was considered the first public meeting in which the status, current concept plan, and timeline were discussed. The project has recently received its Notice to Proceed with the final design stage and a revised schedule was recently cleared by TDOT, whose administering the design and development. During phase one, a 2,500 linear foot sidewalk and bikeway will be erected from the Music City Star parking lot, across the intersection at Mt. Juliet Road, westerly to 4th Avenue. Phase 2 will extend the sidewalk to South Greenhill and ultimately during future phases it will connect to subdivisions. Phase 1 will cost an estimated $450,000 dollars; the entire project is anticipated to cost approximately $1.3 million. A public meeting will be held at the Mt. Juliet City Hall on January 7, 2010, at 7 p.m., for anyone wanting further information on the project. The review of the final plat for the North Right of Way Dedication of CRK Real Estate, LLC property located on Beckwith Road, listed under the consent agenda was deferred to the January meeting of the commission. A motion was made by Phil Smartt to approve the remaining consent agenda items, both the final plat for the South Right of Way Dedication on Beckwith Road and Posey Hill, and the Development Letter of Credit for Windtree Trace Phase 5B, Art Giles seconded, and both were unanimously approved by the commission.

Juliet. “This is the ninth year that FirstBank has had this contest, and it’s our first year to introduce it in the Mt. Juliet community. We enjoy being able to showcase the creative talents of our community’s children.” Every third-grader at Elzie Patton Elementary School was provided with materials to draw a holiday picture for FirstBank. This year’s theme was “Rudolph Spends The Holidays With The Troops”. Representatives from the school selected the three finalists, who included Morgan Butler, Kennedy Billingslea and Audrey Darnell, and a team of judges from Mt. Juliet High School’s art classes under the direction of Sue Gill determined the winner.

Making the Most of Christmas for Our Troops
From MJ with love: shipping gifts to Afghanistan
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
When Jeanda Ward returned to Mt. Juliet from visiting friends in Maryland and shared the news of what she’d learned about some of our US soldiers in Afghanistan it didn’t take long for a beneficial project to take shape for two groups in Del Webb to help. Ward returned and told ladies with the Del Webb Water Bugs and Women’s Club about her friends in Maryland who have a grandson in Afghanistan. She had learned that the soldiers “are sleeping in dirt and in need of basic supplies.” The two groups leapt at the chance to help out and gather supplies – and more – to send to our men and women serving overseas. “The generosity of all of these people is overwhelming,” Ward said. She said that Mavis Marx and Sharon Able have joined her to continue this goal of sending necessities to the soldiers in Afghanistan. “It shows the true spirit for our support for the men and women in the military.” Del Webb residents have purchased items that are most in need for the soldiers. The ladies also suggested that each contributor place a “Thank You” card inside each box with their name and address in case the soldier wants to reply. “You would be surprised what is requested the most or what they fight over,” Ward said. Ward added that The Del Webb Veterans Club, Friendship Club, Red Hat Divas, and the Pancake Breakfast Group have all donated either money toward postage or filled boxes. The First Tennessee Bank at Providence had several employees donate several boxes. “Many of our residents contacted local businesses to contribute to our project,” Ward said. “Kathleen Unger contacted the Holiday Inn Express at Lake Providence, which donated a large box of shaving cream to be stuffed in several boxes. Marge Mann contacted Walgreens at Lake Providence and several employees as well as the manager donated money for postage. Sandy Baynes contacted her eye doctors, Dr. Evans, Dr. Schenk, and Dr. Bowles, at the Eye Center in Lebanon who donated several cases of lubricating eye drops.” The group has already shipped 57 boxes and is in the process of packing 67 more to ship. This should complete the order to the Camp Gardez soldiers for a total of 124 boxes. The boxes are held until there is a box for everyone in the unit, so no one is left out. “We have heard several stories from our Del Webb veterans,” Ward added. “One soldier stated how a truck rolled by his foxhole and tossed him a box while he was in Da Nang on Christmas day. He said it was so great to get something from home.” Several other veterans stated that while in Vietnam they never received a box from home the entire time. “It was a different kind of war back then - but that seems very sad to me,” stated Unger.

Juliet post office. ~ Photo submitted Ward said the group recently heard from a recipient of one of their boxes. Mel and Joan Laszewski received an email from LTC, Russell D. Miller (TN Army National Guard) who wrote: “I am currently serving a tour in Afghanistan and was provided the box of items you so graciously put together. The stuff was awesome and I cannot thank you enough. Your support and generosity is very much appreciated. Many of the snacks I have not been able to obtain for over 7 months. I can’t wait to eat them and really appreciate your support and generosity. Happy Holidays God Bless.” Ward said the groups will put any responses from soldiers at the clubhouse. “We truly appreciate all the donations of money, boxes and time spent by everyone,” stated the ladies. “We cannot know what these men and women are going through during war time, however, we can make it bearable and show our support,” Unger said. “Thanks to all of you and the wonderful donations by Pulte Homes and the Sales staff we have reached our goal and completing the project soon. We should all be proud of what we can accomplish as a team and know it is being appreciated by everyone.”

Making the Most of Christmas for Our Troops Over $6,100 raised for 278th soldiers, and counting

Recently, Cub Scouts of Pack 754 from Elzie Patton Elementary School in Mount Juliet prepared Christmas care boxes for our soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq. Pack leaders thought it would be a good idea for all families associated with the group to bring useful items that our troops would appreciate during the holidays. In the meantime, several local businesses found out about the service project. On December 7 when the group showed up to pack the service boxes, all were surprised to see three large tables overflowing with goods. Supplies consisted of playing cards, food, tissues, candy, books, cleaning kits, and many other items our soldiers will appreciate. In the process of packing the boxes, each scout wrote a personalized letter and colored a Christmas card to the soldier designated to receive his or her care package. While writing and coloring, all cub scouts were educated about soldiers, their duties to their country, and the locations of Afghanistan and Iraq on the world map. They also learned about the long amount of time that a soldier spends away from family during his or her service to the United States and listened to examples of the hardship soldier’s families experience during service to their country. Many scouts expressed their thanks in their letters as they wrote and drew some very inspirational pictures that will hopefully raise the spirits of our troops and let them know that we support them in their actions. Cub Scout Pack 754 packed and shipped a total of 18 large care packages during this effort. As a result, Cub Scout Pack 754 leaders sincerely thanks all of our scouts and their families for their donations, generosity, and effort during this project. We would also like to thank Horizon Land Title, The Little Clinic, and Dr. Brian Kruger, DDS of Simply Smiles for their generous contributions to this service project.

Bryan, right, present Kenny Reich with a check to help bring local soldiers home for Christmas. ~ Photo submitted CedarStone Bank announced this week that, through the efforts of bank employees, directors, customers and friends of the Wilson County community, over $6,102 county wide has been raised to help bring Lebanon’s national guard unit home for the holidays. “This will surely help and we will continue to raise the money to reimburse the families’ expenses for busing their loved ones home for Christmas,” said John B. Bryan, vice-president of CedarStone Bank. The 278th Armored Cavalry Regiment, Tennessee’s largest National Guard unit, which includes troops from Lebanon’s guard post, left Saturday, December 5, for Hattiesburg, MS, for training before being deployed overseas to either Iraq or Afghanistan at the beginning of February 2010. The troops will be allowed to come home for Christmas from December 22 to 28, but the government will not pay for the trip. Retired 1st Sgt. Kenny Reich started an effort to raise the money needed to bring the troops home on four charter buses, which will cost nearly $12,000. Reich asked the community to help in this endeavor. Checks should be made payable to “Family Readiness Group” and can be mailed to CedarStone Bank, Post Office Box 724, Lebanon, TN 37088-0724 or dropped off at any CedarStone Bank location.

Fields announces candidacy for TN House Rep. seat, 57th District
After prayerful consideration and encouragement from citizens of the 57th District, today Robert C. Fields announces his intent to file in April as a candidate in the Republican primary for the Tennessee House of Representatives, District 57. It is with a deep sense of servitude and humility that he seeks this office that has been filled since 1995 with strong conservative values that mirror his principles. Having resided in the same house in Wilson county for twenty-one years, Mr. Fields feels as if he has a pulse on the issues and concerns of the citizens of Wilson and Sumner counties. Mr. Fields is a strong advocate of pro-life, economic growth, the 2nd amendment, lower taxes and less government. He is solidly against excessive government waste of taxpayers’ hard-earned money, which includes complete opposition to any legislation that would implement a statewide income tax. Mr. Fields is an active member of the Wilson County Republican Party, the Wilson County Young Republicans, the Republican Party of Sumner County, National Rifle Association, Wilson County Right to Life, First Families of Georgia (1733-1796) in which he serves as the Treasurer General, and the Sons of the American Revolution. He is an honorably discharged veteran of the U. S. Navy. Mr. Fields was born and raised in a blue-collar working family in southern Georgia. He learned early in life the value of a solid work ethic when his father taught him that any job worth doing is worth doing well. He first used that ethic delivering the morning newspapers on his bicycle, and continued that work ethic until he retired in 2004. His current plan is to take that same work ethic to the House of Representatives. Mr. Fields was educated in the public school systems of Georgia and is an alumnus of Swainsboro High School, South Georgia College and the University of Georgia. He did additional study at the Louis A. Bantle Institute of Syracuse University. After his education was completed, he was employed by the United States Smokeless Tobacco Company as a sales and marketing manager for twenty-five years, from which he retired on April 1, 2004. Beginning as a local sales representative in Augusta, GA, he was fortunate to be promoted into management on April 15, 1983, given responsibility for all sales and marketing activities Mr. Fields is an ordained deacon and former Sunday School teacher. He is also actively involved in the Tennessee Baptist Convention Disaster Relief, currently serving as the Middle Tennessee Training Coordinator. He is certified in chain saw, rebuild, flood recovery, mass feeding, spiritual preparation & evangelism and chaplaincy. He has taken international mission trips to southeast Africa, southeast Asia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland, Canada, as well as Dominica and is scheduled to go into Cuba in 2010. He has also answered the call to volunteer for domestic disasters. Some of those include the Iowa floods of 2008, the Oklahoma and Kentucky ice storms of 2007 and 2009, the autumn blizzard in Amherst, New York of 2006, and hurricanes Ivan, Katrina and Gustav that devastated the coastlines of Alabama and Louisiana 2004 through 2006. He also volunteers with the Room In the Inn program through his local church. As evidenced by these opportunities, Mr. Fields’ passion is serving others and he seeks to continue that humble spirit by serving the citizens of the 57th District as their Representative. To find our more information about Mr. Fields, he can be contacted through his email address, fieldsforthe57th@comcast. net.

in south Georgia and the panhandle of Florida. He was later relocated to the Atlanta area in charge of the entire state of Georgia. From there, in 1988, Mr. Fields was elevated to the position of department manager, meaning that his responsibilities included the entire states of Kentucky and Tennessee, and that is where he ended his career. Mr. Fields and his wife Pat are active members of Tulip Grove Baptist Church in Old Hickory where they both sing in the Adult Choir.

Wilson County School Board to change policies on corporal punishment
By Ben Dudley Special to The Chronicle
Wilson County Board of Education tweaked its policies regarding several issues from the separation of church and state to dual enrollment and college credit to corporal punishment during its regular meeting on December 14. Board policies 1.806 and 4.803 dealt with the lawsuits that the county schools faced recently concerning the separation of church and state. The policies made these issues more neutral and were approved Monday night after their second reading. Two other policies were approved on first reading. Policy 4.205 dealt with college credit and dual enrollment courses while Policy 6.314 dealt with corporal punishment. “We have received a complaint from the OCR (Office of Civil Rights) along with 67 other school districts in the state regarding some inconsistencies with corporal punishment between boys and girls,” said Mike Davis, director of Wilson County Schools. “We have changed our policy on corporal punishment so that all students would receive equal treatment.” There were several presentations at the meeting including the recognition of Jennifer Davis-Kelley, science teacher at Rutland Elementary School, who was named Elementary Science Teacher of the Year for Tennessee. Also honored were the members of the support staff who recently retired. The board was given the UTrust Award along with two other school districts for this school year. The award honors districts that do a good job of recognizing their employees. A Memorandum of Understanding was approved to be sent for the State’s Race to the Top, an approximately $4.5 billion fund to be shared among 10 states and the school districts that present the best need. The M.O.U. needs to be approved by the Tennessee Board of Education by Dec. 18, and submitted to the U.S. Board of Education by Jan. 19, 2010 for consideration. The award will be presented sometime in April and if Wilson County is approved, school system officials will have 90 days to submit to the State school board how they plan to use the money awarded to the system. Other items on the agenda included the approval of a contract to be sent to the Wilson County Water/Wastewater Authority for Lakeview Elementary and the deferral contract dealing with CarrollOakland Elementary. Davis said that a presentation will be made during the next meeting to help decide whether to connect CarrollOakland with WCWWA or to connect them with Lebanon Wastewater Authority. The contract with Volunteer State Community College was renewed to allow students at Wilson Central High School to take classes for college credit as well as dual-enrollment classes through the institution. A donation of two refurbished scoreboards for Watertown High School was also approved.

County commission honors astronaut, teacher of the year
By Ben Dudley Special to The Chronicle
Though neither honoree was in attendance, Wilson County Commission gave special recognition to the county’s first astronaut and state teacher of the year at Monday night’s regular meeting. Capt. Barry “Butch” Wilmore was honored for his contributions to America as a Navy pilot and NASA astronaut in his recent trip piloting the Space Shuttle Atlantis to the International Space Station. Wilmore’s parents, Eugene and Faye Wilmore, were on hand to accept his recognition. Capt. Wilmore grew up in Mt. Juliet, attended Lakeview Elementary, Mt. Juliet Middle School and Mt. Juliet High School. “Barry is a product of Wilson County schools,” Mr. Wilmore, the astronaut’s father, said. “We are so proud of him and we thank you for this recognition.” Jennifer DavisKelley, a fourth grade teacher at Rutland Elementary School, was honored for being selected as the Tennessee Elementary Science Educator of the Year. Mike Davis, director of Schools, accepted her recognition. “Let us not forget that without teachers like Ms. Kelley, we would not have heroes like Mr. Wilmore,” Davis said. During county Finance Director Ron Gilbert’s report, District 2 Commissioner Chris Sorey asked Gilbert how the hotel/motel tax audit was progressing. Gilbert said that five of the 27 hotels in the county had been audited and the firm had found $100,000 that had not been paid. “We were only asked to pay $30,000 for this audit to be performed,” Sorey said. “We have already made that back and then some.” There was little to no discussion on any of the resolutions and all 11 passed with a total of two no votes. District 4 Commissioner Jim Emberton and District 22 Commissioner Heather Scott were absent from the meeting.

Reflections from an Old Friend
Times Sure Have Changed
I must admit that life sure has changed since I was a little boy. When I was a kid we had one thirteen inch black and white television with three channels. We had no remote so changing channels required you to have to actually get out of your chair to do so. Needless to say, there weren’t a lot of channels to choose from so changing channels wasn’t quite the sport it is today. I also must admit that I sort of miss the old days of black and white television. I still remember the day the Andy Griffith Show changed from black and white to color. I didn’t know what to think, but I did not like the change. As a matter of fact, I still find it less entertaining watching the color versions of the show. I can even remember how excited I was to get our fourth channel. It seemed like such an event back then. Now we have lots and lots of channels and can’t seem to find anything to watch. Thank goodness we still have our favorite re-runs airing. They just don’t make television like they used to. Another thing that has changed is how, where, when and with whom we eat dinner. When I was a kid we ate dinner at the dinner table, we ate breakfast at the dinner table. As a matter of fact, we ate all of our meals except popcorn, which took about twenty minutes to pop/cook in a skillet, with grease over the stove and ice cream at the dinner table with the entire family on hand. When we finished we all helped clean up. Sort of a tag team approach. These were Mom’s rules, so if we wanted to eat a good meal and not one that Dad prepared, we stuck to the rules. Oh how things have changed. We now eat breakfast, It’s true, our dinner routine has changed, lunch and even dinner in our cars however, when our families eat together most of the time. At times we have breakfast, lunch at a sit down restaurant we still share the at our desk. and even dinner What’s changed same conversation, love, fellowship and for most of us is that our dinner has good times as we did when I was a kid table our moved to some degree from homes at the dinner table. A table and dinner is restaurants, and to sit down that’s ok. We’re all busy and our what you make of it. lifestyles have changed. So when some state that families don’t share dinner time at the dinner table together anymore, I tend to disagree to some degree. It’s true, our dinner routine has changed, however, when our families eat together at a sit down restaurant we still share the same conversation, love, fellowship and good times as we did when I was a kid at the dinner table. A table and dinner is what you make of it. We all eat on the go these days. The one plus to eating out is that you don’t have to prepare the meal, wash the dishes, or eat my Dad’s very bad cooking. And last, but certainly not least is our methods of communication. When I was a kid you had three ways to communicate. You could make a phone call on a land line only, you could write a letter or you could verbally communicate. Now we have Land Lines. Cell Phones, Twitter, Blogs, E-mail and so on. We still communicate verbally, but the days of actually writing a letter have drastically slowed and changed. Even our media has changed. When I was a kid you had the local and national news that came on at certain times of the day. If you didn’t catch the news when it came on or read the daily paper you could literally miss an entire news cycle. This could leave you feeling totally in the dark. You would have no clue of what the weather was going to be like, what had happened that day with the economy or anything else. Television even went off at night and wouldn’t come back on again until the following morning. Can you imagine no television after midnight? The moral of the story is that I wish I could change some things back to the way they used to be and am glad that some things changed. For example, I don’t mind two minute popcorn, in-door plumbing, water that doesn’t smell and taste like sulfur, multiple channels and the internet. But I sure do miss Walter Cronkite for my news, black and white episodes of Andy Griffith for my entertainment; my Mom’s cooking and just relaxing on the front porch without a care in the world. Please take time to reminisce, unwind, spend time with family and friends and enjoy life to the very fullest. Memories are great; we must continue to make more fond ones.

WEEKLY BIBLE VERSE
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them; and they were sore afraid. And the angel sid unto them, Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. Luke 2:7-12
