Dear Friends of Olive Branch Baptist Church:
Mother's Day at Olive Branch Baptist
Church was very nice. Though we did not vacate
our study from 1 John, we did take time
recognize the ladies - both mothers and women -
in attendance at OBBC in the morning services.
Without a doubt, the highlight along those
lines was having Charles and Jo Small back in
church to celebrate their 70th Wedding
Their two daughters and respective
sons-in-law arranged to get them both to the
church house in time for morning worship and
provided the altar flowers in their recognition.
We appreciate Sherry and Bettye thinking of us
when they thought of their mom and dad.
Can you imagine being married 70 years?
Some among us cannot imagine even living 70
years so being married to the same spouse that
long is absolutely out of the question...perhaps
for many reasons.
Congratulations to Charles to Jo Small!
Seventy years is mind-boggling; but, you have
proven it is not impossible.
P.S. If you are thinking of going with me to the
Holy Land next March I need a $300.00 deposit
by June 1st. It's time that I start making some
definite plans so I need an idea of the number of
folks that are going. Currently I have 35+/- and
I will take no more than 50.
