Proverbs 11:16 – A gracious woman gets honor.

Last Saturday, June 8th, ladies from Groups 4 and 5 held a surprise luncheon to honor Linda Watson for “being the best preacher’s wife ever.”

During her years with Bethany, she has shared her many gifts and talents with our congregation.  Her compassionate nature, devotion and care for her church family are just a few of the characteristics that make her such an extraordinary woman.

Several of the ladies – Susan Bissette, Pat Stilley, Julia Peterson, Sandra Hardison and Juanita Arrington – took some time to share some of the reasons that they think Linda is so special.

The ladies of the church decorated the Fellowship Hall in a “vintage look” with blue and white checked table cloths, crates of flowers, quilts, old kitchen implements, old fashioned china plates and some outdoor furniture.  They also spent hours in the kitchen fixing vegetable trays, chicken salad, deviled eggs, ham biscuits, fruit in a watermelon bowl and four types of homemade ice cream – banana, vanilla, strawberry and orange sherbet.

Thank you, Linda, for everything that you do!
