Spring break is almost over, so be ready to watch for school buses next week. It has been a great week with mostly good weather. Facebook is full of pictures of flowers and plants that are being planted.
Spring arrived this past week, and everything is getting green. Hopefully we won’t have any frost that will kill everything. Longer days are great, also.
When my daughters were in school, it seemed that spring break was always cold and rainy. Then it was called AEA week. The teachers would have a state conference with meetings to attend. Now, the teachers get a break, also.
Something happened this past week that I want to address. Phone scam! It wasn’t me, but a person I know received a call from supposedly a bail bondsman. He told her that a relative had caused a wreck and killed a baby. The only way to keep her out of jail was to go to the bank and withdraw a large sum of money and get it to him.
The supposed relative was put on the phone to request help and confirm her identity. The victim is not sure exactly what she was to do, but he gave her a number to call.
Thankfully, the relative was contacted and confirmed that she was okay. The giveaway was that the victim was to tell no one! So, be on the watch; something similar has also been reported in Elmore County.
Unfortunately, there is nothing the law can do. These people gather information from Facebook and other social media to learn just enough to make it appear real. The calls are made with either throw away phones or through a computer. Just be on the alert and remember if you are told to tell no one, then it’s a scam!
The Richville Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting bingo on April 2. So, come out and support them in this fundraiser. It is always fun, and they have great concessions, also.
The Bible verse I want to share with you this week is Habakkuk 3:18, which reads, “I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior.”
We need to remember that it’s easy to be joyful when everything is going smoothly. It’s when the difficult circumstances occur that we need to remember that God is in control. We aren’t promised a bed of roses, to have no trials or temptations. But no matter what happens in our lives, we can be sure that the Lord is with us, and better days will be coming.
Continue to keep those who have lost loved ones recently in your prayers. 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!
