Union Square Neighborhood Watch will meet Tuesday, September 6, instead of Monday, which is Labor Day. Don’t relax too much on Monday that you forget this special meeting on Tuesday.
Pastor Chris Hill is truly bringing the Word of God to Rockford Church of God. Last Sunday he preached and explained the good side and the bad side of temptation.
The good temptation of God is to help make us become stronger in our faith. The bad is Satan trying to steal and kill our belief and to weaken our faith in Christ. Now we have a choice, and it’s up to us to choose.
Temptation comes to everybody, saved or unsaved, so choose today who you will serve or you will fall into bad temptation. Temptation is a strong hold, either way good or bad.
What I know about Mrs. Veola Marbury Parker is that she was a very kind unique person, a woman of faith, always striving to help increase the faith of others. She was a logician, fighting for justice at all times.
I remember attending school with her at J.D. Thompson High School. She had high standards then, and she kept them until her last day here on earth. She always talked about her husband’s, Jimmy’s, standards and how smart he is and would add, “Ruby, that’s why I married him,” with a beautiful smile on her face.
Veola was a classic lady, a different kind in the eyes of some, but real she was. She did not use plastic utensils for serving your food, only silverware. She was famous for her cooking and serving the communities of Coosa County and other counties. Veola was a great servant, and we all will miss her and her beautiful smile.
Happy birthday to Kelseigh Sims who will turn 7 years old on Sunday, September 4, and she is a praying little girl. Her pawpaw was rushed to the emergency room. Her grandmother called to tell her. She asked her grandmother, “Did you pray for him?” An hour later Kelseigh was at the hospital praying for her pawpaw, “Dear God, please heal my pawpaw,” and God did. Her pawpaw is doing very well and well enough to take a trip out of the states.
People, don’t doubt a child’s prayer. God doesn’t. I pray that Kelseigh (my god-granddaughter) will have many more blessed birthdays. Happy birthday with much love!
Happy birthday to Chat Lee on September 4 and to all September babies.
We continue to pray for the families of Mr. Steve Baker, and let’s keep the Parkers in our prayers.
I thought of you today with love in my heart, Mrs. Hilda Tuck, nurse Diane Mitchell, Lady Lillian Leonard, attorney Frank and Page Teel, and Jean Waters.
“There is a blessing in the pain.”
“Never doubt in the dark what God told you in the light.”
