Good morning everyone.

It is a nice, cool morning here in Six Mile Run, but believe me it is still summertime. This is early Thursday morning and the past three days it has been in the 90s, very hot, so I am thankful for the coolness of the morning. Our back deck is wet this morning, so we must have had a shower sometime during the night.

This won’t be a long column because I have two appointments in Altoona today. One is at my hearing aid place and then I go to have the skin cancer removed from the right side of my face. I am not sure how long that will take.

Yesterday we went to Altoona to the hospital to have testing done on Charley’s legs. That was done on the 3rd floor and then we had to go to the 7th floor to see the doctor about the port he had put in his left arm a month ago and also for the test results on his legs. There is something that needs fixed in the port, so we have to go back to the hospital next Tuesday so they can fix the port.

I am very thankful that for years neither Charley nor I had to go to the doctor very much and hardly ever went to the hospital for anything. But now that we are getting older, we sure are making up for it. I do thank God we have good health insurance. Would you please keep us in your prayers, for wisdom for the doctors and for safe traveling.

Last Saturday, Jessica, Mattalee and Makailee had a good time at DelGrosso’s Amusement Park with the girls’ twirling group. It was a nice day. The girls were able to have fun in the water part of the park and on the rides. They were al full of stories to tell me when they got home.

Once they were gone in the morning at 9: 30, I was able to get a lot of things done in the house that I can’t get done when everyone is here. So I worked from 9: 30 to 5: 30 and then I stopped to get supper for Charley, Lori and I. Needless to say it didn’t take long for me to fall asleep once I sat down to rest.

Next weekend will be Labor Day weekend, and once again the Broad Top area will be a fun place, with lots of things going on. Saturday the 4th Charley’s Class of 1957 are meeting at Happy Hollow to have lunch together. Lord willing, we plan to be there. Then I am hoping we can go over to Broad Top City to watch the parade. Mattalee will be marching in the group with the Tussey Mountain cheerleaders and Makailee will be with the twirling group. We haven’t been able to see them yet this year.

The Robertsdale Alumni are having their banquet this year on Saturday the 4th. I am hoping the Saxton Liberty Alumni will be able to have ours next year. Then there will be a picnic at the park in Broad Top, with rides, music, church services and lots of good food. So have a great weekend over Labor Day, stay safe and I pray it will be a nice weekend.

I want to offer my sincere sympathy to the family of Kenneth E. Foster Sr. of Six Mile Run, who passed away on on Aug. 19. If I can remember correctly, Kenny has lived in Six Mile Run all of his life. He will surely be missed by many people. I pray God will comfort his wife of 62 years and the love of his wife, Vivian; his children, Charley, Kenneth “Gene,” “Dawn “Bunny,” Cynthia and Shannon and all of their families, and other relatives and friends of which he had many. May God’s comfort be with you all to give you the peace and strength you need in your time of sorrow.

May God’s comfort surround you with his love and give you peace and strength in your time of sorrow.

God be with you all, giving you peace and strength in your time of sorrow.

Pastor Ken’s message last Sunday was on spiritual growth I Peter 2:1-17. When you re born again, you need to grow in Jesus. God wants us to be spiritual stones for His corner stones in His church. God wants us to be holy, so that others will want to know His Son, Jesus. Once we believe, we are a holy people, a chosen people, who need to tell others about God and His Son Jesus. We are children of God. Live righteously wherever we are. When we have an opportunity, we need to lead others to Jesus. We need to read God’s word and learn how to grow more like Jesus. We are also to respect authority and to live within the law. May we are Christians honor our God.
