Heat making the flowers bloom
Summer in the middle of January? Can you believe this weather? My yellow bells are blooming and if it keeps on, my daffodils will be in full bloom. Ain't natural. We do need some cold weather but this sure has been nice. I pray all of you are enjoying the beginning of 2013. So far, so good here.
Sunday was a beautiful day, mostly short sleeves, no coats. Sunday night I actually think the air was turned on. Oh well. Will we pay for this later on?
Talking to a good crowd with several visitors, Butch took his message from John 4:1-23 following good singing by our newly formed choir. Sunday night, Psalm 3, "The song of confidence in God," was the title of his sermon.
We were glad to have the Wilsons visiting from Tignall and visitors from Newborn, then on Sunday night we were glad to have the Ronny Hightower family with us. I know I left out some visitors, but I failed to get other names. Thank you for coming and we hope you received a blessing.

Love and prayers for both families.
Wednesday nights Butch will be teaching Christian ethics at 7:15. What does the Bible say about suicide, lust, abortion, subjects hardly ever touched on? Come and see. Come early and enjoy supper for a $2 donation.
