Hello everyone. I sure hope and pray you’re all doing great; everyone out here at Dunlap is doing well too. Ms. Hazel is home from the hospital and seems to be doing well.
She had a pacemaker put in about two weeks ago and now she’s dancin’ and doin’ the jig with all of us, ha ha! We do love our Ms. Hazel now; she doesn’t do any wrong in our book, ever. You go Ms. Hazel! Anyone who is 92 years old deserves to do whatever she wants to, amen!
We want to say happy birthday to two of my staff this week; Teya Hart’s birthday is tomorrow, the 8th, and then there’s Zen Burnett, whose birthday is next Wednesday, the 13th. Happy birthday, ladies, we hope your day is a great one! And we have no resident birthdays this month, so I guess that means no one is getting any older, right? Ha ha! Also, please be in prayer for one of my staff who was involved in a car accident last Wednesday on the way home. We’re all praying for you, Bev!
I would like to remind all of you that we now hold a church service here on campus, with the name being the “New Generation Church.” Bro. Terry Hilliard is the pastor and the services start at 10:30 every Sunday morning in the fellowship hall.
They have been open three weeks now and are averaging about 30 people. Please come and join them in worship; Bro. Terry would love to see you!
In September, we celebrate Grandparents’ Day, and I have never done this before, but would just like to put this out there to the community- if any of you have a grandparent who was very special to you and has passed away or one that is, by the grace of God, still living, and you are very close to them and thankful for them, we have an offering called the “Grandparents’ Day offering” that can be in honor or in memory of your loved ones to Dunlap Retirement Center. If you’d like to participate, please send your tax deductable donation to Dunlap, 1495 Dunlap Orphanage Rd. Brighton, TN 38011. You will receive a thank you from us and if your grandparent is still alive, please include their name and mailing address and I will send them a sweet acknowledgement that you wanted to honor them by donating to all the grandparents who live here at Dunlap Retirement Center. Like I said, I have never thrown this out to the public before, but I thought it would be a sweet way to honor or be in memory of your loved grandparent; just a thought!
Well as of today, by the time you get this Leader, you’ll have sent your child for his/her first day of school, so let’s all remember those little ones who are out there on the streets and may not be paying any attention to traffic; please look twice before you pull out or go down a road/street and look for kids walking and/or biking to and from school.
Have a blessed week everyone. God loves you and the Bible says nothing can snatch you from His hand if you have asked Him to be Lord of your life!
