November has definitely been a busy month. We’ve done “fall back” on the clock, several Veterans Day events in the county and the school, as well as a general election. Coming up we have Thanksgiving next week. Also, the school will be out for the entire week.
I just don’t like the time change! It takes a while to get used to being dark so early, which makes for long nights.
The Town of Rockford did a great job hosting a Veterans Day dinner. It was well attended, and the food was great. So good to see Mr. Joe Collins able to attend and be one of the WWII veterans recognized during the dinner. At 102, he’s probably, if not the oldest, one of the oldest living veterans. Thanks to all the veterans and those currently serving for their service. They and their families give up a lot for them to defend our country.
Next week is Thanksgiving, with Christmas Eve just a month after that. I encourage all of you to take time to be thankful for what the Lord has blessed you with.
The Richville Volunteer Fire Department will host Bingo on December 10 at 6:30 p.m. Come out and join us for loads of fun. Also, we have concessions.
If you’ve been outside any this week, most all of the leaves are turned or turning brown and starting to fall. According to the weather announcers the rest of this week is going to be cold with freezing or below temperatures for our lows.
Gun season for deer comes in on Saturday, November 19. Please, everyone, be careful and practice safety. There are hunting deaths every year contributed to carelessness which could have been avoided. If you are out in the woods, even if you don’t hunt, be sure you wear hunter orange to ensure you’re not mistaken for a deer.
The Bible passage to share this week is from Colossians 3:15. It reads, “And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.” We can’t be truly thankful if we don’t have peace in our hearts.
Christ gives us the ability to have that peace. Christ is stronger than any circumstances that we encounter. We are not promised an easy life, but with Christ all things are possible.
Please be in prayer for the Carol Hammond family. She was a true Southern lady in looks, speech and thoughts. During her years of teaching she touched many lives, and even after she retired she continued to help others.
Also, there are still many cases of the flu, as well as COVID-19.
Continue to be in prayer for those that have recently lost their loved one regardless of circumstances. There are several in our community that are not feeling well, so please pray for their healing in God’s will, as well. 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. I would prefer text to 334-414-7147 or emails to email@example.com, but phone calls will be fine, too. If you don’t get me when you call, be sure to leave a message.
