“Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.”
Hopefully you have had a wonderful week and today promises good things ahead. If all was not as wonderful as it should have been, and today is not progressing as well as it should, then I pray for abundant blessings for you and answered prayers. I pray good for your family members and all things and people concerned with you.
I enjoyed a wonderful time of celebration with Mrs. Leola Nelson at her 20th singing anniversary on last Sunday. She celebrated along with her children and granddaughter, Moette, and many wonderful guest soloists, groups, and choirs and all others that came just to enjoy the services and to wish her well. The program was held at “In my Father’s House.” Rev. Channie Canteen is the pastor.
North Santee Senior Center
I had the privilege of visiting The North Santee Senior Center on Tuesday, Aug. 28. Also present were the staff and members of the Andrews Senior Center as special guests, and others from the North Santee community and other areas.
Mrs. Carrie Kennedy, North Santee Site Director, had planned a wonderful day for all in attendance as she presided over the program.
Everyone joined in singing, “We are climbing Jacob’s ladder” for the opening song. Brother Joseph Vanderhorst did a wonderful prayer followed by the reading and explanation of the scripture by Brother Clifton Grant.
The skit that was presented was called, “The Disciples Audition” directed by Mrs. Evelyn Wragg. Her stagehand was Brother Richard Swinton. Mrs. Wragg also appeared as the Interviewer who questioned the auditioners as to why they thought they should have the role of disciple.
Out of the eight that auditioned, only three were accepted. The skit helped us to see what it really takes to be one of Jesus’ true disciples. Mrs. Wragg did a wonderful job of directing and acting.
The cast of characters were: Priscilla Cromedy, James Wragg, Samuel Bailey, Richard Geathers, Amy Alston, Herbert Dennison, Frances Swinton and Elouise Beach.
Thanks to Mrs. Kennedy for inviting me to perform the monologue of “Martha, sister of Mary and Lazarus.” I had a wonderful time sharing what the Lord had given me to do and ministering to His people. Blessing and helping others is what life is about.
Mrs. Rosa Barr felt ready and able to tell a joke, which she did with clarity at age 94, and received much laughter. Mrs. Priscilla Cromedy became Mrs. Big Bones, and did a standup comedy presentation that kept the audience laughing, Mrs. Carrie Kennedy gave heartwarming remarks, and a delicious lunch was served.
Many thanks go to Mrs. Carrie Kennedy and her staff for doing a wonderful job, and they invite you to stop by and see them anytime Monday through Thursday at the North Santee Senior Center.
Upcoming comedy plays
I hope you have your tickets for the upcoming comedy plays; “The Day the Women Disappeared and From a Man’s Point of View. You may get tickets from Lamar’s Fish and Chips at 206 Merriman Road, or if all tickets are gone, you may pay at the door for the same price of $10.
The play centers around 9 couples and the mistakes they make as married couples. In the first play, the women feel that they are being rejected and mistreated by the men, so they decide to disappear to let the men see what it is to be without the women.
The men learn their lesson and decide to do better, but they begin to find fault with the women, and they decide to disappear. Well, you can guess the rest.
The play is being performed by “The Mt. Zion AME Church Players of Bloomingvale” with special guest appearance by Brother Jack Ladson of Nazareth AME of Choppee.
That’s 7 p.m. on Sept. 14 at the new Winyah auditorium 1200 Highmarket St. across from First Baptist Church in Georgetown. For more information, call 843-546-0841.
Please remember to pray for the sick and shut in, the bereaved, those in nursing homes and hospitals, the hungry, the homeless, our men and women on the battlefield in Iraq and their families back home, those facing surgeries of any kind, parents and their children, our political candidates, our schools and churches, our teachers and pastors,
Special thanks to all of you who continue to encourage me concerning this column. Let us continue to pray for one another for blessings above and beyond that which we can even imagine or expect. May God bless you always. Have a great day.

The National Transportation Safety Board is recommending lowering the legal blood alcohol content limit for drivers from .08 percent to .05 percent. They say it will decrease the number of traffic fatalities. Do you agree with this idea?
