Sugar Creek sends Easter blessings to all her readers
By Mae Buice
We do have so much to be thankful for. Oh, the storms over the weekend were terrible and gave us such a feeling of “what do we do.” Many of our neighbors in Morgan County do not have a storm shelter. This type of storm is not common to this area of the country. So some of us really do feel helpless but God was with us all the way protecting as He always does if we only ask and ask I did! Thank you precious Lord for your blessings and protecting power. After so much bad weather Sunday dawned beautiful and mild, another blessing. Our churches should have been packed with those giving thanks for His staying powers. Our services were good. We were glad to again have Leon and Nelda Brownlee with us. Leon brought our message from II Timothy 4. He opened by talking about the homes lost, lives lost saying that these are only signs of the times with the Bible being fulfilled. We are in that day and time. We don’t love and care for each other, as we should. We live in perilous times – lovers of ourselves more than the love of God. If that’s your priority get to the altar. Are you dedicated? Are you determined? Are you dependable? Where will you go? Get stirred up about Jesus and the gospel in this day and time there are those that do not want to hear the gospel. There needs to be determination and dedication and dependability to do the work of God. Where is your destination?
On Sunday night the crowd was off but we still enjoyed Lou’s message taken from Genesis.
Kim Johnson attended the Easter Program at Beacon Heights Baptist Church Sunday night.
Remember our Military! Especially Ronnie Lawson and Michael King at this time.
It was good to have Ricky Stovall back with us after his surgery. He still has a few weeks before he will be 100 percent.
Eleanor is doing better with her elbow; Mary seems to be doing well; Mr. O. L. is doing well at this time and there are so many others please remember them as you pray. And always include our own Shepherd, Lou when you pray.
Our work is continuing to get our AWANA building completed, the frames have been dug and installed for our walk ways. Lou, Reubin, Steve and John have put in back breaking work to see that this gets done. If any of you strong backed men can do so they can sure use your help.
This Friday afternoon at 5 p.m. there will be an egg hunt for children of all ages. Then on Saturday night at 6 p.m. will be our first ever Easter Program sponsored by Sugar Creek Baptist Church. You old timers is this correct? If so the first one will be a good one and we will be looking for you to attend. Betty King has worked hard along with her dedicated workers to make this a spiritual occasion. Let’s support the cast and our church for this special edition of “The Passion.”
Derek and Rebecca Jenkins recently visited with O. L. Jordan.
Alice Waddell and several of her family had an enjoyed trip to Tybee Island last week. They said the water was still cold but I think the children did take a quick “dip.”
We were glad to have a visit from our daughter Gayle and Jimmy Holmes on Sunday.
Tim, Theresa and Rachael Moore, our new neighbors here on Fraction Bottom Road, have returned from a trip to Pennsylvania.
We send our Christian sympathy to the Higdon family in the recent passing of Neal’s grandmother, Geneva Higdon.
We are in the midst of planning for our Baby Dedication Day in the near future. Please contact me for any information you might need.
Remember the Community Sing at Grace Bible Church on the 27th.
Happy birthday blessings to Andy Simmons and Rita Harrington on the 21, Betty Walker on the 22 and Chad Carlson on the 25.
Easter blessings for all my readers. Remember the how and the why of this blessed season.
Until next week may the Lord bless you real good.
