I can’t believe the “Holiday of Summer” is upon us
By Mae Buice
A beautiful Memorial weekend. I can’t believe the “Holiday of Summer” is upon us. Where did the time go? I trust that all my readers had a safe holiday weekend.
I know we had some that were out of town but we had a good crowd and a great time in the Lord’s house on Sunday. We appreciate the visitors and pray for their return. Lou took his sermon from several books, going in several directions with Luke and Matthew. His subject was on “Compassion and Grace.”
God gave His only Son so that we could have an everlasting place to go. He had so much love He gave His only begotten son. Satan has moved into all areas, our government, and our schools, even into our homes. So many businesses are closing. But if your heart is right and you have God you have it all to be thankful for. Don’t get too far away from Him.
It being Memorial weekend we recognized our former military members had some patriotic songs in our service.
Last night we had a good time with our “Singspiration” time even if the devil tried to discourage us by messing with our PA system. We feel that we kicked him clear out of the building and got it going full force again. Thanks to all that took part to make this fourth Sunday night a success.
Last weekend the family of Jackie and Johnny Bumgarner attended the Marshall family reunion at Watkinsville.
On Saturday Lou and Jessie Comans attended the Davenport reunion at Dalton.
Sunday, June 1 we will recognize our high school seniors in the morning service. Tyler Ward and John Lawson are away this week with the Morgan County seniors in Florida where one thing of interest they will do is attend a major league baseball game, Busch Gardens and other points of interest, plus having all that fun of just being together. Congratulations to all Morgan County Seniors!
Our ladies prayer group chooses to do “Monthly Projects.” April, our project was to help the family of Little Ruthie Hensley and the other great-grandchildren of Almedia Smith with their diaper needs.
Our sympathy goes out to Betty and Cliff Walker in the death of Betty’s aunt in Tennessee.
Trae Holmes, our oldest grandson and his friend Amber Culver of Conyers were our guests over the weekend. They enjoyed fishing and caught some nice ones. They attended church with us on Sunday. Gayle, our daughter, came down on Sunday afternoon to visit.
We are in the process of planning a “Game Day” for our church family in June. There will be more details later.
Saturday night, May 31, HISSONG will be in concert at the Parks Ferry camping area. I don’t know who is sponsoring the occasion but I understand if you attend you are to take a covered dish / picnic food and a chair.
The Community Sing at Grace Bible is this Thursday night at 7 p.m.
We here in the Blue Springs community are happy that Gennell Harper is able to be at her lake home and with her family again. Gennell has just received a double lung transplant and I’m so glad to report that she is doing well.
Tommy and Linda Anderson have had members of their family for the holiday weekend.
Bill and Mildred Lyle had guests on this holiday weekend.
Anniversary blessings for Earl and Almedia Smith on June 1.
Happy birthday to Joe Collins on the 31, Allison Bell and Stephanie Martin, June 1, Cody Waddell on the 2.
