Cathey’s Creek History Project

Our group had a great meeting on Monday. We had pictures and papers spread all over the place, with everyone finding out new things. In Sunday’s lesson, a verse I came across is taken from Deuteronomy 4:9: “lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen.” Our goal is to preserve the history of this area we live in.

Pat Fisher

Pray for the family of Patricia Ann Hunter Fisher, who passed away on Jan. 21. Pat was 68 years old. She was preceded in death by her husband, Allen, on Christmas Day, 2019. She is survived by her children, grandchildren and siblings. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 1, at Cathey’s Creek Baptist Church. Visitation will follow the memorial service.

They moved from this area to Balsam Grove. They were good neighbors. She leaves behind children and grandchildren. Prayers for family and friends.

Call Crystal Whitman at 862-4431 for more information or to arrange for pick-up.

The Window

Sunday morning when I opened the curtains it looked like a scene from “Frozen.”

Everything had a beautiful glistening coating of frost, every limb and blade of grass. The mountains were white, with the frozen mist. The fog even looked frozen. It soon melted with the bright sunshine. “Frozen” is an animated Disney movie that kids and adults have delighted in for the past few years. I’ve watched it numerous times with the great-grands.
