There were no emergencies in the Cliffs that were reported to me this week. Everyone is on the mend or just taking care of themselves as well as they can. I guess that applies to me as well. I had a clinic appointment on Wednesday at Howard Memorial Hospital where I got my mammogram and bone density tests. I would like to thank the technicians who worked with me. They are a credit to the profession. Seniors can be at ease when they go for this service. They will be well taken care of. Thank you again for making me feel so comfortable.
Piggee Memorial Baptist Church in Graves Chapel had regular worship service on Sunday with good attendance and a very inspiring sermon by Pastor Dixon. Everyone was encouraged to go and share the word and live a better life. The afternoon was shared with a neighboring church, where Rev. Dixon was the speaker.
I am still getting comments from out of town subscribers. They are excited to learn what’s going on in their individual communities. They want to know all the details. A home town connection is a good thing to have.
February is Black History month. We all know that Blacks have made a lifetime contribution to this country. We are all proud to live in the United States of America and call it home. We have fought in the wars and given our lives, as well as we have served in the lowest capacities. We have served as the leading member of the country as the President of the United States of America. I think it’s about time we all come together and just be the best Americans we can be together.

Christian Refresher: Psalms 91:1-4 KJV
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God: in him will I trust.
Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall cover thee with his feathers: and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Martin Luther King, Jr. 1929-1968 - U.S. leader of the civil rights movement for Blacks, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, gave his life for a cause.
Love is the key!
