School graduations, VFD fundraiser
Tax season is over! So, now I can move on to other interests and priorities. From what I’m hearing and reading, restrictions are being lifted for travel and events so we can plan vacations. This summer will probably be busy for everyone as they make up for missing so much last year. However, there are some things that can’t be made up. So sad for events that were once in a lifetime that was restricted, if able to have at all.
Last week was the awards program at the school. Congratulations to all the students that received awards. Your hard work has paid off. This week, graduations are scheduled. Kindergarten graduation is Wednesday, May 26, and that’s their last day of school. Senior graduation is Thursday, May 27. The last day of school for all other students is Wednesday, June 2. Congratulations, kindergarteners and seniors, on this achievement!
Providence Baptist has several high school and college graduates this year. We plan to honor them this Sunday, May 23, at either the 9 or 11 a.m. worship service, their choice. If you don’t have a church, you are invited to Providence Baptist, located at the intersection of Coosa County roads 459 and 19, just a couple of miles off Alabama Highway 22.
So glad to see churches holding regular services again. Make plans to attend one on Sunday and praise the Lord in worship!
Remember Richville Volunteer Fire Department is selling tickets for Boston butts that they will be cooking Memorial Day weekend. The tickets are $30 and can be picked up on Saturday morning, May 29. If interested, contact any fire department volunteer. I buy one or two every time they cook, and they are always good.
My Bible verse this week is Colossians 3:2, “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” My Bible is a woman’s study Bible and has encouragement pages referencing scriptures in it. Brother George’s sermon was on Colossians 4:2–6 this past Sunday. The opposite page referenced this verse. It spoke of when being stressed, anxious, and overwhelmed to remember this verse to set your priorities. It just seemed to fit with this time of year and follow-up for last week’s verse. There will always be times we feel overwhelmed with what’s going on in our lives. However, we should choose to be thankful to Him even when things are not going as we wish.
“For every look at yourself, take ten looks at Christ,” said Robert Murray M’Cheyne, a Scottish evangelical pastor in the 1800s. It reminds us that for each struggle or trial in our lives, we need to turn to God and look at the promises given to us.
Please continue to be in prayer for the sick in our community and to those that have lost loved ones. There are others in our community that have recently lost a loved one that we need to keep in our prayers. God knows their names and needs. Until next week, take care and be joyful!
