So sorry for all the families in our county and the other counties that had tornado damages. But so thankful that as bad as it was, Coosa had no lives lost.
I can’t imagine what those affected are feeling seeing the aftermath of the tornado. Homes completely destroyed or damaged, vehicles and possessions gone. Our prayers are with all the families, but we are so proud of all the volunteers that have stepped up to help clean up and repair where possible.
There are forecasts for more storms this week as I write this. Hopefully, nothing like what we had this past week. Staying weather aware made a difference in the outcome of the past storms, so keep listening for those warnings and be prepared to take cover.
Bro. Steve Dyess again brought the message at Providence Baptist this past Sunday. Continue to be in prayer for our church as we search for an interim pastor, as well as a new pastor.
As I said last week, it’s almost time to do taxes. Volunteer Connections in Alexander City will begin preparing taxes next Thursday, January 26, from 9-5. Then we’ll start at Rockford on Wednesday, February 1. At this time, we will be at the E-911 building.
The Historical Society will meet on Sunday, January 22, at Twenty-Two & Crew at 2 p.m. We will be sharing some of our genealogy breakthroughs and brick walls, so bring what you have to share, as well as Ronnie Joiner will have some interesting things to display and discuss. You don’t have to be a member to attend. Refreshments will be served, and door prizes will be given.
It’s amazing how often my Bible readings match circumstances or seem to be just what I need to hear. This week’s scripture to share is 2 Corinthians 4:16-18. It reads, “Therefore we do not give up. Even though our outer person is being destroyed, our inner person is being renewed day by day. For our momentary light affliction is producing for us an absolutely incomparable eternal weight of glory. So, we do not focus on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
Paul wrote this as his physical body was being persecuted. But he knew that nothing he suffered physically could make him forget that his inner person was being renewed daily.
Be in prayer for Misty Johnson’s family. Continue to be in prayer for those that lost their loved ones in the storm and others that have recently lost their loved ones. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org, but phone calls will be fine, too. If you don’t get me when you call, be sure to leave a message.
