Well, the frost has definitely been on the pumpkin this week. Record breaking low temperatures are predicted.
These last few months have seen the temperatures go from record highs to now record lows. So, it’s time to get the sweaters and long sleeves out finally. I was beginning to think we would never get to sweater weather. However, next week is supposed to be back in the upper 70s to low 80s.
I’m ready for fall! The leaves are starting to turn and fall off. Looking forward to seeing the frost on my back yard to the pond, looking like snow. I love to turn on my gas logs and watch the fire on a chilly morning with a cup of coffee or late at night.
Sardis Baptist Church had a great fall festival from all the posts and comments on Facebook. Don’t forget that Rockford will have its annual “trick or treat” along Main Street on Monday, October 31, from 5:30 to 7:30.
Political ads have really increased in the last few days and will continue until the elections on Tuesday, November 8. So far I haven’t heard or seen negative ads and hope that continues. Slinging mud back and forth between candidates is something I can live without.
The Historical Society will not have a meeting this month because of several circumstances. This year we celebrate 50 years as an organization, which will be celebrated at our January meeting. The Veteran’s Memorial update is still a work in progress. Sometimes life interferes with our plans or at least delays them.
The Bible verse to share this week is from part of Brother George’s sermon last week about “there are no accidents with God.” He used part of the story of Ruth, but the verse I want to share is from Ephesians 1:11. It reads, “We have also received an inheritance in Him, predestined according to the purpose of the One who works out everything in agreement with the decision of His will.”
God knows everything; He has a plan for all. What is our inheritance from God? Eternal life! What better inheritance could we receive? I’m not going to get into the predestination part of this verse as there are different opinions on what it means. But look at the implications of the verse that there are no accidents. We have to trust as Christians that God is in control of our lives.
Continue to keep those who have lost loved ones recently in your prayers. There are several in our community that are not feeling well, so please pray for their healing in God’s will. God knows their names and needs. Until next week, take care and be joyful!
