If you’ve followed my column, you know my mama passed away last month. My granddaughter flew home for the funeral. My daughter, who had already planned a road trip to California to visit with her and friends, decided to drive her back and invited me along.
So, we left June 5 and returned late on June 22. We stopped along the way out to see some of the sights. The Grand Canyon was on our “bucket list” so we spent one day there. It is breathtaking! So, if you ever have a chance, go see it. We just saw part of the South Rim, so you could spend several days seeing the entire thing.
After resting at my granddaughter’s in Twentynine Palms, we drove to the Sacramento area to stay a couple of days with friends, then north to the Redwood National Park. Those are some huge trees!
On our drive back to my granddaughter’s we discovered the “Drive-Thru” tree. It was large enough to actually drive your vehicle through the tree. Then we went to the Joshua Tree National Forest that is only desert, rocks, sand, and cacti! Then it was time to say goodbye and for my daughter and I to head home.
We left Twentynine Palms to head to the Hoover Dam. That is another awesome sight. We then stayed in Las Vegas for the night. Our next visit was the Arch in St. Louis. I rode the tram to the top, which has a magnificent view. We had planned to only drive part of the way home from there, but decided we could make it home on Thursday late instead of Friday.
So, that has been my adventure for the summer I wanted to share with you. While all the sightseeing was wonderful, the best thing was the memories made with my daughter and granddaughter.
Concord Baptist Church is planning its VBS “Happy Campers, spend your summer with God.” The time and date is July 12 -15, ages 6-12, from 5:30 to 8 each night.
Providence Baptist Church plans a Family Fun Night on Friday, July 7, at 6 p.m. with games and food.
The Richville Volunteer Fire Department will have Bingo on Saturday, July 8, at 6:30. So come out and support them while having fun.
Also, the Richville Neighborhood Watch is reorganizing with their first meeting to be held in August. More details to follow.
Just a reminder that the Old Rock Jail will not be open this Sunday, but will reopen the next Sunday from 2 to 4.
My scripture this week is still about family. Proverbs 17:6 reads, “Grandchildren are the crown of the elderly, and the pride of sons is their fathers.”
Grandchildren and great-grandchildren are a source of unbelievable pleasure. I think it’s because when we are parents, we are so busy trying to provide for our families that we miss out. It’s not intentional, just a fact. But, when grands and greats come along, we have more time. Also, we get to send them home with their parents!
There are several in our community that are not feeling well, so please pray for their healing in God’s will. God knows their names and needs. Until next week, take care and be joyful!
Organizations in the area, as well as churches, I need your events! If your family has some news or an event to share, please contact me. I would prefer text to 334-414-7147 or emails to firstname.lastname@example.org, but phone calls will be fine, too. If you don’t get me when you call, be sure to leave a message.
