A Familiar Hymn, But Not Many Know The Words
We had read responsively Psalm
100. We had sung "How Firm A

Shiloh Church thought it had been
selected just for them. It was a
good time for Tim to select it for
himself and his family. His mother,
Selma Ware, was hospitalized al-
most two weeks ago.
Not many of us could probably
sing many of the words to this
hymn without the help of the hymn
book. Most of us recognize the
tune and title. Sunday, tune and ti-
tle was sufficient on which to med-
itate as we included ourselves and
those people and concerns noted in
the bulletin. Indeed, we did plea-
fully affirm "I Need Thee Every
Hour" for Punkin Higginbotham
and her family who keep a vigil
going for her father, Earl Marlowe;
for Kenny Stokes, brother of Susan
Robinson; for Jean Koon, mother
of Jeannie Moss; for Hutch's aunt,
Florence Yoho; for Vardell Neal;
for Lib Redmond, James Byers,
Maria Harry, the John Robinson
family, for Stell Harry's family, for

many goodbyes of late. It makes a
No less is the hourly news of our
many graduates. Graduation, too,
brings changes and adjustments
within a family and community.
Many of them go away and it takes
a long time for them to come back.
We always do.
The hourly news is surely a must
for those who travel-vacation-seek
employment-for those coming -for
those going out-for those in retire-
ment-for all of us, the hourly news
is surely a must.

Baptist Sunday nigh to enjoy the
Children's Choir musical, "Come
On Over To My Own Backyard."
We were delighted to be with them
in their Baptist backyard. Our
“getalongability” is always a good
time. I wouldn't mind if it became
legalized that our "getalongability"
got along more often. Andy
Montgomery missed being in a
performance again this year be-
cause of his being sick again. Let's
try again next year, Andy.

salmon colored geraniums.
Hanging on the double doors can
be found two decorated grapevine
wreaths and bordering the porch is
a brown, wrought iron railing.

Have you noticed Beck Davis
sporting around town in her new
red Chevy Cavalier? Becky is un-
derstandably proud of her new pos-
session, and rumor has it that hus-
band, Perry will not be seen too
often behind the wheel. I guess
Perry will just have to be satisfied
driving that big red fire truck.

a dinner at Chisholin's Cripple
Creek in Charlotte, compliments of
their children, Bruce Boyles, and

"Just to get away," said Diane.
While there, they visited the

seafood were also in order.
