Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas. I hope this Christmas holiday fills your home with joy and peace and your heart with love.  Love to all.

Birthday wishes to:  Tanner Mildred Keller on Dec. 23; and Phyllis Williams and Brenda Reeves on Dec. 26. Happy anniversary to:  Wayne and Frieda Dyson on Dec. 22 and Johnny and Hilda Keaton on Dec. 28.  If you would like a birthday or anniversary listed in this column, please let me know.

A Christmas Eve service will be held at New Union Church at 7:30 p.m. Everyone is invited. New Union members went Christmas caroling last Sunday afternoon. It was not only a blessing to those in the nursing homes and the shut-ins, but to those who participated in the caroling. Thanks to Pastor Tim Lowery and others for the photos.

Ijames Baptist had a wonderful drive-thru Nativity with live characters and animals on Dec. 8 and 9. They want to thank everyone who participated and the many people who drove through. There were over 500 in attendance the two nights. Thanks to Sharon McDaniel and Pam Branham for the information and photos this week.

Local musicians perform each Friday evening from 6-8 at MawMaw’s Restaurant off US 601 S., Mocksville.

Prayer requests continue for Bryan Swain, Hazel Smoot, Tim Keller, Junior Dunn, Betty Dameron, Tammy Keller, Charles England, Lincoln Dyson, Chester Reeves, Yvonne Ijames, Bonnie Gunter, Ed Livengood, Milton Tutterow, Geraldine Lambert, Betty Beck, Sue Gobble, Helen Bulla, Paul Beck, Juanita Keaton, Betty Godbey, Emily Brown, Marsha Gobble, Mary Teague, Eddie Porter, Janie Williams, Larry Richie, Maria Knight, Violet Coursey, Clyde Jordan, Jack Seaford, Wade Stroud and Suzonne Stratton.

Our sincere condolences to the Alice Cartner Waugh family.
