Bravo to Rockford Mayor Scott White who did an excellent job for the Christmas event and parade. I am happy I was a part of it. I got a chance to see that big fine son of the Whites.
I was also one of the judges, along with Mrs. Pat Windsor and Mrs. Frankie Cousin. We enjoyed it and had a lot of fun. However, none of us like to judge; hopefully we chose the right ones. It was a beautiful day and night for the winners and everyone.
Everyone who participated were winners, because you all were beautiful. We loved the Central Coosa Band, giving praise to the Savior as they marched along. It was a beautiful day in Rockford, and we give God all the praise for what He has done and is going to do for Rockford.
Rockford Church of God is being blessed. Seven people became members; no need to call names. God knows them, and He has their backs.
There is a song titled “Ain’t it Funny how Time Slips Away.” I say isn’t it funny how people drift away and don’t remember what happened yesterday. Don’t we soon forget? People have become so angry and lazy that they have forgotten God; won’t go to church, won’t open their mouth and praise God, but will go to a football game and open their mouth wide and yell louder than the referee and coach. After a loss they won’t even speak to you.
When you lose, the real you comes out. You begin pouting, showing your bad and real sides. We need to grow up and respect people. Stop acting like little children. When you are a child you act like a child. When you become a grown man you act like a man.
You win some; you lose some. That’s the way the ball rolls. But it doesn’t give anyone a reason to disrespect anyone. We can all be winners with God. We have a choice. Stop pouting and move on.
We pray for the Austin sisters of Rockford, Ms. Mable and Ms. Emogene, in the loss of their sister, Mrs. Louise Austin Price.
We want to give a shout out to all the real gentlemen of Coosa County, with Deacon Larry Powell chosen as the gentleman of the month. Powell is a real true gentleman demonstrating his kindness to everyone he encounters, with the lessons he learned from his sweet mother, Mrs. Lily Powell, and his grandmother, midwife Mrs. Lily Marbury, who delivered many babies in Coosa County (including my first born, Janice).
Most of the males are gentlemen today. “Most” is written with a chuckle. But I believe all of them are great gentlemen. Deacon Larry Powell came from a great family. His grandmother’s brother Mr. Alex Riggins Sr. was my godfather, and I loved him dearly. Deacon Powell and his wife, Mrs. Carolyn Powell, are two mellow people.
Thank you, Christa and Lydia, for your hard work and your honesty. Working for “The Coosa County News” is not always easy when dealing with many personalities and miserable people. When adversity comes it’s a sign of God’s blessings. You give your heart for the people. Some people would rather steal it, but they cannot so they become miserable, and “misery loves company.” Continue to shine your light and God will bless you.
