By: Betty Moore
I was sorry to hear about Mrs. Tri-Bee’s accident, Frances Brewer. I hope that you are feeling better by now, Frances. Those falls can really shake us up I have blacked out for an instant before. I hit my head when I blacked out some weeks ago. I must have a hard head for sure.

Most Baptist churches are receiving the Annie Armstrong Easter offering for home missions. All of the offering goes directly to those that are serving in our country for the Lord.
Someone had told me that the time change was to be on Sunday but I guess that I didn’t let it sink in. But when we sprung forward with our clocks on Saturday night reality hit. Man alive! I don’t like that! Many that work get off from work when there’s plenty of daylight. I guess old age has gotten to me and I am in a rut.
Someone told me that those that claim to be Christian in 1991 – 1992 was at about 86 percent. It is estimated that it is now in the 70’s. I don’t know but I do know that crime is at an unusually high rate now. The economy has caused some to turn to crime in order to make a go of it. Agencies can help but some act in desperation. I have no idea if there is a percentage of the lawbreakers that are Christians.
I do know that in Christ that He is our Maker. He is our Savior. He is our provider of our needs. He sustains us and that there is nothing too big for Christ to handle. We soon celebrate Easter when Christ arose! He lives! Death was nothing to hold Him! Let’s look to Him!
