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

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.

Not brave enough to ride
Delores and Prince Albert
Down through the darkness
Sticking to everything
Drifting, blowing, piling high
Millions of snowflakes
Each an original
Achieving one common goal
Depending on love
Tossed, molded by society
Millions of children
Each an original
Leading our world.
