Cooler temperatures and college football, two sure signs of fall! Officially fall began this week on Wednesday, September 22. On that date the day and night are almost equal in most locations! I’m ready for fall! Hard to believe that next week begins October.
Union Baptist Church had revival this week. Churches are still having regular services. There are several in our area, so if you are not attending one regularly, try one this Sunday! If you can go shopping and attend events, you can go to church! Providence and the other churches in the area are fine with you wearing a mask and social distancing.
The emphasis for the Myers/Mallory special mission offering finished this past Sunday. However, you can continue to give year round.
While COVID-19 continues to affect people in our area, most are family members that live away. Thankfully, Richville seems to be escaping the worst of it. School continues to be in session with no need to go virtual. They do continue to require face masks and limit school visitors out of safety concerns.
While it’s still not a regular school year, its much closer than last year. Continue to pray for our school, the faculty and staff, and the students.
I want to thank everyone that came out to Mama’s 90th birthday celebration. Also, thanks to all those that helped out; I couldn’t have done it without the help. Mama enjoyed seeing everyone. Also, all those that sent or brought cards, she has enjoyed reading them. Looking over them, out of the about 70, none have been duplicates!
One of my Bible verses for the week was Psalm 16:11, “You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” This verse is a perfect example of what life in Christ is.
He calls us to the path, provides for us and best of all promises eternal life with Him. We just need to follow that narrow path He shows us and provides us with joy overflowing. The joy is not for things here on earth, but things that are eternal. So many times, we confuse earthly joy with eternal pleasure. He doesn’t promise us a life of ease or free from problems. He promises us eternal life, but also the knowledge that He is always with us regardless of circumstances.
Continue to be in prayer for the sick in our community and to those that have lost loved ones. But we also need to look around us and see what we can do to help those that are in need, not just by prayers. God knows their names and needs, but we as Christians should know them, also. So many times we respond to needs by saying, “I’ll pray for you.” However, they need more than just a prayer; they need our help to change the situation.
Until next week, take care and be joyful!
