Monday, Oct. 9

Sunday, Pastor Taylor’s sermon was from the 12th chapter of Hebrews. The youth choir sang and praised God. We invite you to visit our church Sunday morning at 9 a.m. for worship service. The St. Paul Church of Lake End will have a song and praise service Saturday, Oct. 28. The Rev. Lonnie Bradley is pastor. Choirs, soloists and groups are invited. The church is on Hwy. 1 North. Come help us make a joyful noise unto the Lord. Last week, there were lots of people buying hunting equipment. They are getting ready to head to the woods for squirrel season.

As always, have a safe trip and be careful. Never hunt alone. And of course, don’t forget the mosquito spray. Always use precaution. When camping, make sure the fires are out. The forecast is calling for cooler temperatures. I am sure most of us can’t wait. Last week it was in the upper 80s and it was downright hot. Well, there isn’t much we can really do about it but sit back and wait for a change. Hurricane Nate produced a little rain. Always be prepared for changes in the weather.

Try keeping batteries, water, flashlights, etc. You can never tell when you might need them. The stores are getting ready for Halloween. Displays are already up. Kids can’t wait. The fresh mustard and turnip greens are ready to enjoy. Mims Produce has fresh greens and sweet potatoes. They are located near the Ajax exit just past the cowboy store on I-49. Pecans are plentiful because they are falling like crazy and there are leaves all over the place.

That’s what the fall of the year is all about. That means it’s time to harvest. Check on the sick and shut-ins. Thanks to the sponsors who donated and helped in any way with National Night Out. Thanks to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Dept. that sent Officers Sparks and Ruffin. The kids really enjoyed Eddie the Eagle. We look forward to next year.
