Happy birthday to all those celebrating in November. I hope everyone is being thankful for one thing each day this month.
Today, I’m thankful for having a car to drive. It is something that I really just take for granted. I get ready to go somewhere, and it’s there. So, I’m blessed not only to have the ability to drive, but it gives me independence.
I don’t like the new time, especially in the afternoons. But I’ll get used to it. Then we’ll be changing back and I’ll not like the change again! I do hope that our elected officials will come together and set the time to be the same all year.
So glad to see that Rockford has plans for a Christmas celebration. While we are outside the city limits, I still consider it my hometown. So be on the lookout for the details in the paper!
With the recent change in weather, I’m ready for the holidays. I think this time of year is my favorite. Thanksgiving is a time for family get-togethers, shopping, ball games, and Christmas decorating.
Sardis Baptist Church had fellowship Sunday lunch this past week. Everyone enjoyed the food and fellowship. They usually have a fellowship meal every other Sunday. I’m sure they would be delighted for you to attend.
Providence Baptist Church has begun an outreach program called Evangelism Explosion. We are planning visitations in the community to promote the gospel. In the month of November, we will not have services on Sunday nights. They will resume in December.
This month, the Bible verses are about thankfulness. In I Thessalonians 5:18 it reads, “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
This is much easier said than done. So often things happen that make you question “why.” As long as your life is going smoothly, it’s easy to thank God. But when life gets tough and seems everything is out of sorts it’s not easy to be thankful for anything.
Often, our prayers are full of thanks for the good things that are happening, but how are we thankful for the difficult or hard things? There’s a saying, “Every cloud has a silver lining,” but sometimes it is very difficult to see. Examine the problems to find God’s will for you, then give thanks.
Our elementary school especially needs our prayers this week and the next few weeks as they lost a special person this past week. Our prayers go out to her family and friends.
Her shoes are going to be hard to fill. She was loved by all the kids and the staff. When you saw her, she always had a smile.
There are several in our community that are not feeling well, and others have family that are having health issues. Please pray for their healing in God’s will. God knows their names and needs.
Until next week, take care and be joyful!
Organizations in the area, as well as churches, I need your events! If your family has some news or an event to share, please contact me.
