Mr. Paul Perrett’s locker at the volunteer fire department.
Paul Perrett as a young man.
Union Square’s Neighborhood Watch will meet February 7 at 6 p.m.
January has come and gone, but not the great memories of former Coosa County Commissioner Paul Perrett, who passed away last January. One year ago seems like yesterday.
Butch and I have a special place in our hearts for Paul Perrett, and we would like to honor him today for the great work he did for Coosa County. Not only as a commissioner, but many other subjects. We will never forget what he did for the Coosa County landfill while serving on the commission.
We told him the problem, and he took care of it quickly! Even though he was not our district commissioner at the time, he got it done.
Oh, I can say so much about his work with the fire department. Instead we will show his locker in the fire department. Neat, isn’t it? Paul had a neat personality and was a man of understanding!
February is love month, and we also celebrate Black History Month. This week we honor Pastor Christopher Todd.
First, we thank God for placing Pastor Todd’s feet on holy ground in Alabama, especially in Coosa County, where he resides and preaches the true word of God.
When I first met this young man of God, I saw something special about him and also his lovely wife, Lady Shay, a young godly couple whom I love very much.
Pastor Todd is more than just a preacher. He carries many channels, and all have good news. He does not have to be in the pulpit to serve God and spread His good news. Pastor Todd serves God in Coosa County and other counties in a mighty way.
Reading his column in “The Coosa County News” last week, January 28, titled “Develop through difficulty what God deposited” blessed me tremendously! I was in the valley, grieving over loved ones who left us here on earth; ill loved ones and friends who mean so much to me are in the hospital, some are turning to drugs, etc.
I was speechless before I read Pastor Todd’s column and said I wasn’t going to tell anybody. There is a song I love to hear the Traveling Harrell’s sing titled, “I Said I wasn’t Going to tell Nobody but I got to Tell it.” When God blesses you, you’ve got to tell it.
God used Pastor Todd to pull me out of the valley, and I thank Todd and give God all of the glory. I am on the mountain top now, reminding myself that God has deposited something in me, and He wants to develop it.
That is enough to tell somebody. We are overcomers by our testimonies. I said I wasn’t going to tell anybody, but I got to tell it! God is good, and Pastor Todd is a man of God.
We honor Pastor Christopher Todd of Coosa County for the beginning week of Black History Month.
Loved ones I’ve lost within weeks and months apart: a classmate and friend Sim Shaw Jr., niece Joyce Brown Leonard, nephews Bonnie Brown and Spencer Crawford, brothers-in-law James and Larry Johnson, Mrs. Ethel Herron, Mr. Elzie Hamilton, and many others. Our prayers go to the families.
Happy birthday to Robin Schmidt, groundhog baby, and to all February babies.
