“Today is the day the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad in it.” Reminds us of late friend, Irene Cole,  who taught us that verse.   

What a great crisp fall day and I have great news ... our close friend, Dianne Cage, will be back writing for The Citizen beginning next week. “Yes!”

Big week for football fans:

Neville under Coach McCarty has won 35 consecutive games and is looking to achieve an historic three-peat state football championship. LSU’s win over Arkansas placed them in the bowl hunt with a possible Sugar Bowl berth! LSU is the second highest ranked SEC team behind Bama. The game against Florida on Saturday at 6 p.m. is huge.

ULM soundly beat Georgia State with Thomas Koufie scoring 5 touchdowns and earning Sunbelt player of the week.  For the Warhawks, this is a new beginning.

Tech is again seeking the championship in the Conference USA. Go Coach Holtz!

WMHS is still in the 5A chase using three quarterbacks. Our grandson, Adam Upshaw Lewis, was voted Captain of LSU's University High team wearing Elton’s #33 and will be playing undefeated Loyola of Shreveport on Friday night. Coach Jeff Tannehill’s St. Frederick Warriors won, too. Congrats to all!

News on the pro level from the Dallas Cowboys is that fabulous quarterback, Zack Prescott, from Haughton, La., has our own Jeff Guerriero as his agent. Zack has won the starting job with 8 wins and one loss over Romo. What a coup for Jeff!

Four great parties on the weekend included the 90th surprise birthday party for Agnes McGivern at BDCC, two wedding celebration parties for Kiley Kane and Robert Schendle and a great occasion for the engagement of Anna Nelson and Hall Caples.

Note the beautiful pumpkin table decor from the wedding brunch for Kiley and Robert Schendle by Chris Allums!  Kathy Schendle was magnificent in cream lace and pink! Kiley works in DC with the Justice Department which is exciting.  The talented Ginny Yatco and company created a most beautiful reception for Anna and Hall with roses, Casablancas, hydrangeas, and beautiful greenery. 

Since the world began, no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like ours, who works for those who wait for Him.   Isaiah 64: 4
