  • What kind of person screams one minute, cries the next?

  • Facebook, social media provide life lessons in short posts

    There’s always something new to click on Facebook, and recently it’s been “What Has 2016 Taught You?”
    According to Facebook, here’s what I’ve supposedly learned this past year:
    “Forgiving is easy; it’s trusting them again that’s hard.”
    The folks or whoever/whatever at Facebook added, “The past year has changed you completely. You’ve seen your life from a completely different angle, and this led you to new experiences.”
    Hmmm.

    We give glory to God for another wonderful day of worship. Our pastor brought a message from John 8:31-31 on the marks and benefits of a Christian. During the evening we enjoyed the Family Fun Fellowship and what a night of great activities, food, and fellowship.
    The Church Co-ed Volleyball League is now in full swing and matches will be played every Monday evening which will result in the basketball court being closed from 5:45 p.m.-closing. First Baptist will play at 7:30 p.m., this Monday.

  • Psalm 91 may not have magical powers, but is healing

    For Christmas I gave my husband Psalm 91.
    Not all of it, just the first two verses:
    “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the most high will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.”
    I found an artist on the Etsy website who hand paints scripture verses, white lettering on rustic gray paper.

    We give thanks to the Lord for the uplifting day of worship. Our pastor returned to the study in John with a message entitled “Highway to Hell” from chapter eight verses 21-30. Jesus confronted the religious leaders of their horrifying destination due to their self-sufficiency, worldliness, unbelief and ignorance. Sunday evening we examined Genesis four which revealed the root cause of the worldwide flood.

  • Searching for lost keys easier under a street light

    A police officer happened upon a fellow on his hands and knees under a street light searching intently for something.
     “What are you looking for?” the policeman asked.
     “I lost my car keys,” the fellow responded.
     After helping the fellow search for a long while without finding the keys, the police officer asked: “Are you sure you lost them here?”
     “No, I lost them over yonder somewhere, but the light is much better here.”

  • Little girls weren’t meant to leap from a safe place

    When my daughter, Laura, was 7 or so, I took her for swimming lessons at the community pool. She liked kicking while holding onto the pool’s side, and didn’t mind putting her face in the water. She even did quite well swimming across the pool.
    But when it came time to jump off the diving board, she decided little girls weren’t meant to leap from a place of safety into a potentially unsafe place.

    The New Year was kicked off with a great day of worship. Our pastor brought a challenging message from Proverbs 3 that dealt with three things to consider that will lead to a successful year. We look forward to all that 2017 will unveil to us in our pursuit of Christ and his glory.
    Tonight (Wednesday) we will have regular services for the adults, youth and children that will all start at 6:45 p.m.
