Every Wednesday evening Mrs. Sims would prepare for Bible study with the women from Bethesda Church. “Come on in”, she’d say, I knew you would be right on time.” The ladies from Bethesda were serious about their Bible studies, especially Sister Clara. She could quote the Bible like water running from a faucet. I often wondered why she even came to study, but if you would ask her she would always reply, “baby, you just can’t have enough of the Word of God in you, you’ll never know when you will need it.” That was enough answer for me. I just sat and listened to them. It was intriguing to watch, and to say the least, afterwards I’d get to join in on all the good eats Mrs. Simpson had prepared for the group. The fried chicken was my favorite, but there was also collard greens, potato salad, hot biscuits, and sweet potato pie served right from Mrs. Simpsons kitchen. I always looked forward to going to Bible study at Mrs.Simpsons house.
