Wishing you a happy Mother’s Day!
Happy Mother’s Day from the Springs Church Family.
We’ve had lots of rain, which we needed. Everything is so green and pretty. Thank God for the rain. I’ve seen a couple of my hummingbirds at their feeders. I am sure more will come.
We wish A. J. a speedy recovery. Sis. A was home with him on Sunday.
Speaking of Sunday we had a joyful time in the Lord. Dr. Kathy Hubbard had the church on fire for Jesus. She brought a powerful message from the book of Matthew 16: 13, “What are we working with?” Minister Kathy you really blessed my soul on Sunday.
Our pastor and First Lady were on a mini-vacation. It was good to hear from them on Sunday evening.
Yours truly is doing better still under the doctor’s care. I had to let you all hear from me. Sister A will keep you up by writing the happenings next week.
Continue to keep all the sick, shut-ins, and bereaved in your prayers.
Thought to Remember: “Be of good courage.”

Rain showers to May flowers
Country music has lost a legend
Faith, hope, love are essential ingredients for worship
Sunday is a few hours away...
I often stop at this time of the week and ask “am I really prepared to meet God in worship?” As a worship leader that question can go in many directions: “is all the music in place?” “am I ready to lead?” I often only think about my role, what I am going to do or have to do in worship. And, I am wrong for that.
Keep an eye on your pets

There have been a great number of dogs missing as listed in the Morgan County Citizen. Last week there were eight dogs missing in Putnam County. A few weeks ago four bulldog puppies went missing one night from a house at Mansfield. Then the next day the mother was missing. Others in that area were gone. It seems to be a very widespread happening.
