“Now some good news. We can hear wedding bells.”
By Mae Buice
Seems I remember the same last year, heavy winds in February instead of March could it be our seasons are out of “whack?” Sure hope not.
Sunday was a cold but beautiful day to be in the house of the Lord. Song service was good, specials with Nikki, Victory is Ours, Lou had several requests to do Changing Houses. I sang Still Go Free Lou began his sermon reading I Kings 19. Without the God given in spirit words we wouldn’t have our Bible today. Elijah was fleeing from Jezebel but God sometimes let us get in this state to bring us down and make us turn to Him. God knew all Elijah was going through but he was a servant of God and God protected and he could not be touched. As Elijah was sleeping under a tree an angel touched him, told him to arise and eat. He was nourished and rested. Who did he trust in? Do we trust? Elijah rested again, the angel of the Lord came again and touched him and said arise and eat. Yes, grace and encouragement will take us through our troubles and trials, do we trust? Listen to that still small voice. We always have enjoyable Sunday night services, they are very informal and the singing and praising always touches the heart.
The beautiful flowers were placed in memory of Mary Creek and Eleanor Johnson’s mother Bessie Davis and brother D.M. Davis who would have celebrated birthdays in February.
Vicky Vanwhy shared the good news with us that James is on his way home from Iraq and is due to be in camp in North Carolina on Monday. They will be able to see and visit with him on Friday. Our prayers have been with these men all their time away.
Nikki Higdon performed in a Talent Search on Saturday at the Mall of Georgia. My reporter tells me that she did good and is to go back in six months. Congratulations Nikki.
Don’t forget the “Community Sing” on the 28th at Grace Bible Church in Buckhead.
Our sympathy and love goes out to the family of Janie Jordan Harden of Stone Mountain. Janie was the daughter of Rufus and Annie Laurie Jordan. She had many relatives and friends in and around the Madison area.
Our Christian sympathy goes out to Betty and Cliff Walker in the sudden death of their niece Martha Ault of Douglasville. Also our sympathy to Bill and Mildred Lyle in the sudden death of Mildred’s brother, retired Brig. General Tom Dalton of Roswell.
Now some good news. We can hear wedding bells. Our neighbor here on Blue Springs Court will be getting married in August. Forrest DeLoach will marry Lorraine Grabosky and they will make their home in Peachtree City. Congratulations to this young couple.
There are still so many sick with the crud that’s been going around for a few weeks. I’m still not feeling “top of the world” with the pneumonia I’ve had, now Tommy, Rusty and Kim are all sick and Betty tells me that she had Justin to the doctor today. I know there are so many more that I do not know about and I pray good health soon to all of them.
Belated birthday wishes for Clifford Walker on the 9. I believe Cliff turned 81! Happy birthday to Jed Smith on the 14 and Alice Waddell and Greg Self on the 17. Anniversary blessings to Sara and David McLendon on the 19.
Until next week may the Lord bless you real good.
