Celebrating another birthday




Celebrating Mother's 80th birthday and the East Jenkins Church of God's 50th birthday

Time for a Special Celebration

In April, 1941, the Church of God was established in East Jenkins, Kentucky by Rev. J. L. Guthrie (See "Our Church page").  Fifty years later, the church celebrated its 50th birthday which happened to also be Mother's 80th birthday year.  She was a charter member of the church, so there was a joint celebration commemorating the church's 50th birthday and Mother's 80th birthday.  (See cake above)

Mother and her Cavalier

When she decided to visit me, Mother drove from Lexington to Jenkins by herself long past her eightieth birthday.  She was the official driver in Lexington when her "younger" friends needed to go the store, doctor or to church--even long out-of-town trips.  She was an excellent driver.

Snowflakes floating

By Candy Castle

Down through the darkness
Sticking to everything
Drifting, blowing, piling high

Millions of snowflakes
Each an original
Joining together
Achieving one common goal

Children awakening
Growing, discovering
Depending on love
Tossed, molded by society

Millions of children
Each an original
Joining together
Leading our world.

                                            A New Dawn
