When did my moment of mortality come? While driving a laundry truck many years ago, I stopped at an intersection waiting for the red light to change. When it changed to green, I started to put my foot down on the accelerator, but something in my mind told me to put on the brake instead. I’m thankful that I did, because an 18 wheeler came across that intersection going about 65-70 mph, running the red light. Had I been in the intersection, I would have been killed instantaneously. After carefully looking both to the left and to the right, then safely going through the intersection, I pulled over and stopped in order to calm my nerves down. I then thanked the Lord for saving my life. Guess He had some future plans for me.

In case of an emergency with our car, we call a repair shop, about two miles from where we live. If the car is unable to be driven to the repair shop, they’ll send a tow truck. As far as our computer, our son knows a good repair person who gives generous senior citizen discounts, plus he actually knows how to repair a computer. 🙂 For medical emergencies, we have 911.

The only news around area churches, is that a lot of folks are on vacation. Half of our small congregation have gone to Louisiana to visit family.

My First Paying Job?

My first paying job was, like the ladies in the picture, pulling cotton for 25 cents per day. I was 5 years old at the time. The cotton sack I had was especially made for my size. Unlike the picture of the ladies picking cotton, I quickly learned that the wearing of gloves is a must, otherwise your hands will have scratches and cuts all over them – not a pleasant experience.

My first paying job where I contributed to Social Security, was working at a cucumber shed, loading 40-60 pound sacks of cucumbers into a truck bed, 16 hours per day. I made a whole $300 one summer to pay for my books and tuition at college.
