God was glorified in hearts

Editor Buckhead News Leave a Comment

I was so happy that the people who were planning to have the Sunrise services Sunday did not get washed out. Praise God! When the sun came peeping out through the trees here at home I was so glad. I prayed that some souls might be saved. We didn’t get to go to any service. I was told that the various churches that had the cantatas had a wonderful service. Easter is so special because we think of the Risen Christ! Margaret Bell had about 75 Sunday for lunch. Everyone …

Editor Sugar Creek News Leave a Comment

Missed writing last week, but was sick, no church for me, thus, no news. Still not a lot as I missed this Sunday morning service also, but did get there for the evening worship service.  And I want to thank Phil Reid for filling in for me on the piano. Love to hear him play and so sorry I missed that and so sorry I missed some special visitors I had invited. Please come back soon. Beautiful weather out there but so yellow and bad on throats, the nose and …

As we look to the upcoming weekend all those that are Christians look to the time and day with joy and great thankfulness at the Resurrection of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This means to us that we may continue to live in Jesus Christ in eternity if we are believers in Jesus. We are happy because we celebrate a risen Lord and Savior – Easter! It’s not going to church once a year or buying new clothes to wear to church. It is celebrating a living Lord, day …

Editor Sugar Creek News Leave a Comment

First of all let me begin by apologizing to Monaray. I forgot to call last week and I’m so sorry. You might just cut my pay! In fact, I’ll let you. It’s a beautiful day but still a little windy. Hopefully spring weather is just around the corner.   We had a sad full week leading up to this week end, a death in the family and I just forgot all else. To a full congregation on Sunday with several visitors Butch took his message from Titus 2: 11-15.   Talked to …

By Mae Buice, Columnist Wow, March already this year is ticking right on by and this coming week end we set our clocks to Daylight Savings Time. I wish they would leave our time alone. Let us get use to one or the other, especially old folks like me don’t like the changes so much. Oh, well. Today, Monday started out rainy but cleared up after just a little shower, now just partly cloudy out there. This has been a winter to remember. A nice crowd congregated on Sunday with …

Eugene Bess were the pastors. The Rev. Garner is a former pastor of the church there and was a good friend of Richard’s. The Rev. Garner …

Mae Buice, Columnist What a beautiful day…. and just a short week ago what did we have? Oh, Mother Nature, how you do tease. But yes, we do deserve some nice weather and I do pray that old groundhog was right. He did not see his shadow. Sunday was nice. Just a light jacket and you are warm enough. Services were very good in our little church on Sunday. The Spirit was present as Butch brought his sermon from Ezekiel 1.   So many times we think God doesn’t hear our …

By Mae Buice WHAT!!!!  Snow on Tuesday. It’s nice for maybe an hour but I hope it skips over us. I know the school kids would love a “snow day” vacation. And that’s the way I opened my last news column. I pray this is not a repeat of that week. The kids will have to go to school half the summer to make up these days. Me???  I AM ready for a little spring weather. Seems most of our sick are all better. It was rough in many households …

By Betty Moore, Columnist   The Belles of Buckhead enjoyed a delicious pot-luck supper at Eloise Bowden’s house.

This and That from the RTL

Editor Rutledge News Leave a Comment

Atlanta is by far the largest and most influential city in Georgia. In recent years Atlanta has been frequently referred to as the ATL. The Atlanta Hawks have jerseys that simply have ATL across the chest. This influence has filtered out to our “Small but Special” town as I have heard young people around here referring to Rutledge as the RTL. I like it! The talk of the town has been the cold weather. The coldest winter in many years has produced lots of days with temperatures not getting out …
