Gas prices, storms, & Mother’s Day
By Willie Ann Johnson
Sympathy goes out to Mother Mary Lizzie Parks in the death of her brother Robert Johnkeins. Funeral service was Wednesday at Jones and Turner Funeral Home Chapel.
Belated Happy Mother’s Day and to the young people most of all don’t take your mothers for granted. Love and honor her for you have a lot to be thankful for. My mother went home to be with the Lord 27 years ago and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and my sister Mary. They are gone but will never be forgotten.
Sherri Binion surprised her mother. She came home to spend several days with her. She was also here for Mother’s Day. Praise the Lord.
We wish Andra' a speedy recovery from an accident he had on his job. He came through his surgery okay but still he is not able to work yet but hopes to soon. Thank you Lord because God is a healer.
Saturday night I kept my weather station on and kept up with the storm. Thank you Lord again for not letting us be in the storm. Another blessing from you.
My children came home for Mother’s Day. Early Sunday morning they came downstairs thinking the storm was coming when they heard the rain. I told them they could go back to bed because the storm had gone another route. So they all went back to bed and almost slept too late for church service, but they made it.
With the gas prices keep going up all of us that live within walking distance to church might need to start walking to church for savings and exercise
We continue to have a large attendance at the Springs and we welcome you to the Springs where strangers meet friends and sinners meet Christ.
Congratulations go out to our high school students who passed their test.
Our Gospel Choir sang songs from our hymnal, which I liked. Makes me think back to when I was a small child those were the songs I was brought up singing and I enjoy singing them to this day. Thank you Lord.
Pastor T.’s sermon came from the book of Luke 1: 28-30. His text, “When the favor of God doesn’t seem fair.” What a powerful sermon pastor, keep teaching and preaching God’s word. Let us remember to pray for all of the storm victims.
After church on Sunday the wind was very high. My trees in the front yard were bending back and forth.
After my retirement I meet up with a lot of the patients at Wal-Mart. One is Albert from the Madison House. If I don’t see him he’ll come and make sure he speaks. He is always smiling and that sometime makes a person feel better if he or she is having a bad day. Just a smile sometime will do the spirit good. I miss the patients very much and also the staff.
We are getting ready for our Youth Day Program. Date and time will be announced at a later date.
I hope to have more news from the members in the future.
Keep all the sick, shut-ins and bereaved in your thoughts and prayers.
Thought for the week: “God has promised to supply all our needs, not all our wants.” – Luke 12: 29-30
