NEW BETHEL NEWS
Pastor Connie presented her Mother's Day message on line with emphasis on the Godly mother. Youth taking part were Susan Davis on violin, Kylee Walters sang a solo with taped music titled "Coat of Many Colors," and Hannah Webster recited a poem which she had written. It was an impressive service and appreciated by many. We all missed our potted flowers from Ponsler's greenhouse, which is a tradition.
Pastor Connie has announced she will open church doors Sunday, May 17, for those wishing to sit inside for worship. Others may stay in their cars in the parking lot and adjust their radio dial to 88.9 FM or stay home for streaming on their smart phones.
It seems many had the same idea to treat mom to carry in meals Sunday to honor Mother's Day. It was also a time for cards and phone calls.
Our evening meal came from Columbus Texas Roadhouse via Scott. The Diekhoffs shared the cost. Julie, Joe, and Hope visited us in the afternoon and brought a special cheese and cracker gift; the cheese blocks were sealed in heavy wax and shaped into a red heart and pink tulip. They shared the same gift with Joe's mother, Ruth and Julie kept one. Julie celebrated a quiet birthday Monday.
Janice Burton sent a really cute action message with flowers and a buzzing honeybee singing Happy Mother's Day.
Robert and Monica Grider carried Sunday supper in to Patty and Emerson Tempest.
Jewel and David Yeager and sons pulled a pan of homemade lasagna from the freezer and enjoyed a quiet meal together. They went to D.Q. in the evening. They had considerable wind damage to their house roof and lost several trees in the recent wind storm so they are preparing for a new roof soon.
Ray and Brenda Suhre's children carried KFC, pulled out the picnic table, and shared Mother's Day visiting at a safe distance. Present were Tim, Maribeth, Ben, Abby and fiancee Adam Capes. Also, James, Susie, Sarah, Hannah and Morgan Webster with Eleanor Vawter. They also brought Brenda flowers and Hannah and Sarah sang for her.
John and Margaret Sure brought McDonald's to his mother, Clara Suhre Sunday noon. Daughter Donna Kreut-zjans brought flowers. Son Bill brought KFC supper and a large potted fern for the porch.
Beulah Yeager's family treated her with visits recently to celebrate and honor Mother's Day. David and Jewel Yeager, Russ and Diane Yeager, Lois and Randy Davis live close by and check on her often, drive her for her appointments, etc. She received a large brown envelope from grandson Casey Davis, and family of Wisconsin. Great-granddaughter Kelsen, had made a cut out and fold-up picture of a little girl with open arms offering a big hug. You might guess it is taped to the wall with arms flopping and Grandma is feeling much love. Grandson, Chuck Davis, and family of Elizabethtown also keep in touch often by phone.
Beulah reports her twin sister, Barbara Boyd is doing well at the Mason's Home in Franklin. She stays busy with audio books, online exercise class, and music while the home is quarantined from outside trips, etc.
