A miscellaneous shower was given Thursday evening, May 9 from 7 to 9 p.m. for Miss Gwen Kelley, bride-elect of Jerry Coone, in the Fellowship .Hall of the Lockhart Baptist Church. As the guests arrived Mrs. Tera Bell Hamilton greeted them and introduced them to the receiving line. In the receiv- ing line were the bride-to-be; her mother, Mrs. EdithKelley; Mrs. Nettle Foley, grand- mother of ban, roe, and Mrs. Ida Coone, grandmother of the groom-to-be. Attending the Bride's Book was Miss Lynda Cassady. The appointed table was covered in pink overlaid with pink net a- dorned with a bud vase holding pink rose buds.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thank- ful into him, and bless his name. (Psalm 100:4) Little Kirk was sad, even though he was at a party. It seemed that all his cousins were having birthdays one right after another, and his had long since passed. "Why don't I have a present to Open?" he wailed. "You do," I said. "Where?" he asked, looking around for a brightly wrapped package. "You opened it this morn- ing," I answered. "Everynew day is a surprise package from God," I explained. "It is like opening a present from Him." As grown-ups, we know that the gifts we receive on birth- days and holiday occasions are not always just what we wanted. However, we try to accept all gifts with grace. But, we are sometimes bitter about things that happen in our lives. We should accept all circumstanc- es, rejoicing in the good things and accepting gracefully those "gifts" we do not yet under- stand. Prayer: Help me, O Lord, to appreciate and to wisely use the gifts which come to me each day from You, Amen. Thought For The Day : Every new day is a surprise package from God.

They are possessions which, if not protected, will soon be a thing of the past. This is a case where first things should come first. About it, this certainly would not have been the case had the general public known of the pollution problem earlier. And can you imagine what would have been the results had the former editor, Lucile Woodham McRae, known of this careless and in- different attitude. My article of last week was mild compared to the "roasting" city officials would have received had she con- tinued to be at the reins here at The Florala News office when this news broke.

A cat- fish lunch will follow and the afternoon will be devoted to an educational program plus a question and answer period. Anyone interested in catfish production is invited to attend.
