Joppa Baptist homecoming
Joppa Baptist Church is holding a homecoming celebration on June 5 at 11 a.m. Pastor Steve King from First Baptist of Coleman is guest speaker. Joppa Baptist Church was established in 1896 and will be celebrating their 115th year. The homecoming theme is a western theme so come dressed for the West. There will be dinner on the grounds following the service. A special invitation is being extended to all previous pastors and their families.
“Quit dragging your fishing pole,” I barked, and swatted my seven year old little brother across his cotton top. “What are you moping about anyhow?”
Obviously something was eating little Heath. He usually gabbed the whole way to the fishing hole. When he finally looked up from between those slumped shoulders his lips were curled like he’d ate our tube of crickets. I thought he was going to spew. “You promise you won’t tell momma?” he gasped, fighting back tears.

Since we moved to Florida, I’ve noticed that people keep donkeys. I’m one of those people who never thought that a donkey was worth a whole lot, but I’ve since learned that I have been mistaken on that subject.
Many people in this state have realized that donkeys can perform a valuable service.
