On The Bright Side

Mary Howell


Yesterday was the first day of Spring! Whether or not Old Man Winter is still lurking around remains to be seen. The date on the calendar says that “spring has sprung”!


I remember just a few years ago when Sabine County was covered with a blanket of snow on Easter Sunday  It seemed funny to have snow falling during the Western Day Parade on Saturday, the day before Easter.


The next day, it felt weird to see children hunting Easter eggs in the snow.  Everyone had to bundle up in coats, sweaters and gloves to find what the Easter bunny had hidden from view.


I remember one Easter Sunday morning when the temperatures fell below freezing which made it fairly uncomfortable for those of us who attended outdoor sunrise services.


We can all be thankful that God has blessed us with frequent showers of rain during the past few weeks. 


We all remember the long drought that occurred during the summer months of 2011.  Toledo Bend Lake fell to its lowest level ever.  Since we have had rain, Toledo Bend is slowly coming back to its normal level.


Toledo Bend is Sabine County’s main source of tourism.  Each spring and summer, hundreds of people from other states come to East Texas to enjoy the fishing in Toledo Bend and Sam Rayburn lakes.


Some of these visitors enjoy their visits to Sabine county so much that they want to make it their personal home.


Let us join together to extend a welcome to our springtime visitors.  Let us make their visit’s a time on the bright side.
