Historical Society meets Sunday
Hopefully everyone’s gardens survived the cold this past week. Everything has been getting so green, with all the flowers blooming with such pretty colors. I love the springtime! My bird feeders are so busy with all the different birds that come to eat. Also, the hummingbirds are back. The air just smells different this time of year.
The Historical Society meets this Sunday, April 25, at 2 p.m. in Rockford at the old “Crew’s Drugstore” on Main Street. We have an exciting program to be presented by Kerry Hatchett. Since retiring, he has been researching Indians in Coosa County. He will be sharing that, as well as a map of Coosa County he has created. You don’t have to be a member to attend. But dues are only $20 per year per family with quarterly newsletters, and it’s tax deductible! We will follow state guidelines for social distancing. You are welcome to wear a mask if you are more comfortable doing so. Individual prepackaged snacks will be served.
It was great to worship inside on Sunday. We had two great services. Churches in the area are beginning to have people attending once again. Please remember in prayer all the churches as decisions are made on how they will continue forward with worship services and events.
This week I thought about all the new growth and new life that is coming out around us. In II Corinthians 5:17 it reads, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone; the new is here!” What wonderful words to think about as we have celebrated Easter and now the awakening of the earth and its beauty. Whether you are starting a new job or relationship, moving, or even just want a fresh approach to your life, having Christ in your life will make a difference. It’s never too late to make a decision to accept Christ, or if you’ve fallen away to turn back to Him. While usually the New Year is the time, and we make resolutions to change things in our lives, springtime to me seems to be a great time. The cold dreary winter has ended with brighter skies and warmer days. Especially this year, people are beginning to venture out to experience and enjoy just being alive. So, we need to live by faith, trusting in God to see us through all the troubles and trials that come with being alive.
We all will experience tribulations in our lives, but how we approach those depends on our trust in God. So, trust God this week to guide you in all you do. That doesn’t mean everything will be without problems, but you will enjoy life and be able to handle situations better.
Please continue to be in prayer for the sick in our community and to those that have lost loved ones. God knows their names and needs. Until next week, take care and be joyful!
