Class Pastor: Jack Slade



You can't always get what you want,
But if you try sometimes
You just might find
You get what you need......




Remember,
now that we are older....we are CLASSIC PATRIOTS!


May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung,
And may you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy,
May your feet always be swift,
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift.
May your heart always be joyful,
May your song always be sung,
And may you stay forever young.

.......'Forever Young', Bob Dylan

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Ruth Chitwood Fletcher


I married a year out of high school, had 2 children, was an at home mom, and loved every minute of it. In 1982 we moved to Friendswood, Texas just south of Houston. And then after 22 years of marriage I found myself divorced. So at age 41 I decided to go back to college while working full time at United Way. December 1999 I graduated from University of Houston Clear Lake with a BS in accounting. My goal was to graduate before I turned 50 and I graduated just after my 49th birthday. What a celebration! I was recruited (can you believe it….an older person was recruited!) by Duke Energy and worked in the accounting department preparing the annual and quarterly filings for both the SEC and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for their natural gas business. In January 2007 Duke spun off the natural gas business and a new company was formed, Spectra Energy. In the new structure I was offered a position in risk management managing Spectra’s captive (self-insured) insurance company. I accepted the position and gladly walked away from the long working hours of accounting. I really love what I do.
My daughter, Michelle, is married and lives in San Antonio. She graduated from Texas A&M and taught high school English until she started her family. She and her husband, Britt, have 3 children, Luke (15), Rachel (13), and Hannah (5). My son, Richard, is married and lives in Searcy, Arkansas. He graduated from University of Arkansas with a degree in Landscape Architecture. He and his wife, Kristin, have 2 boys, Jackson (7) and James (3).
Fifteen years after my divorce, I remarried in January 2006 and we live in Nassau Bay (still in the Houston area). We met at church in the “older” singles group. We have so much fun together. He is so tolerant of me…..you can only imagine after living alone for 15 years I was very set in my ways and extremely independent Together we have 10 grandchildren! We love traveling and spending as much time as possible with the grandkids. We are both looking forward to retirement in the next few years.
