This special quilt; featuring entwined wedding bands, wedding photos and other photos of the couple; was one of the beautiful quilts on display during the C.O.A.C.H. Memorial Quilt Walk. The gorgeous quilt was a twenty-fifth wedding anniversary gift from Tracy Brown to Ronnie and Donna Brown, and Donna Brown entered it in the Quilt Walk. Photo submitted
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a time set aside to focus and pray about all types of cancer. Many of us have lost family members, loved ones and friends to cancer. However, many have survived this deadly disease. Still, we must continue to pray for God’s goodness to find a cure.
Sunday, October 8, a Memorial Quilt Walk was held at the plantation home of Revenue Commissioner Debra Lamberth, sponsored by C.O.A.C.H. (Cancer Outreach and Community Hope), an extravagant free event for a good cause. It was absolutely worth the walk and sightseeing.
Those quilts were too pretty to be slept under or on. I loved every one of them. However, Mrs. Donna E. Brown’s caught my eye at the end of the walk and made me step back twice. I thought I had seen it all until… “What great ideas women have,” especially Mrs. Donna. Her imagination goes beyond.
We thank Debra and everyone who worked so hard and faithfully to accomplish this great event, especially Probate Judge Richard Dean and wife, Mrs. Jackie. They worked until the last quilt was removed, as well as others, but I personally thank and honor Judge Dean. He works beyond the courthouse, and we are grateful and proud to have a humble man (judge) working for Coosa County.
I have metal plates in my knee, and sometimes standing and walking trouble it. However, there was no trouble in this walk. What a wonderful walk for cancer! Thank you to my sister for helping me down the stairs (you know who you are) after the walk (smile). Thank God for the great weather and refreshments. It was a beautiful day for this event.
Butch and I enjoyed two days of Rockford Baptist Church’s Jubilee Senior Adult Revival, where Pastor Jeff Fuller is overseer. Those two days were like 2,000 years of angels singing and great preaching going on in heaven, right here in Rockford.
Professor Hunter Goff supplied the music and his voice for the week. He is one of the greatest musicians of all time. If you could hear him sing and play you would feel like you were in heaven and would never think about hell.
Hunter is from Alabama, but he travels all over the world and shines his God-given light singing and playing for the Lord and His people. Alabama loves Hunter, but I love him most. He is my chosen nephew, son of my chosen brother, Bill, and his wife, Judy, and the grandson of the greatest (deceased) Dr. W. Goff who delivered me and many others in Rockford, like Judge Jerry Fielding (smile). Judge and I laugh about this because we are two months apart in age.
OK, back to the jubilee. Pastor Joe Fain preached the word on Thursday from Hebrews 12, steps to reconnect and keep your eyes on Jesus, etc., and Friday Pastor Bill King preached from Psalms 42 and 43, depression and some of the reasons for it, spirit is broken and feeling distant from God, etc. He told us how to get help. First, admit it. Nothing is wrong with asking for help.
These preachers did an awesome job helping Christians to stay connected to God. They were on the same page for God.
Let’s continue praying for Israel and our sick loved ones.
Happy birthday to all October babies, including Vickie Scott and Lydia Waters, who both have birthdays today, October 20.
We thank God for Pastor Jeff and Lady Tina Fuller. They are a blessing to Rockford!
