We had a great turnout for bingo at Richville Volunteer Fire Department. Everyone had fun even if they didn’t win! The next bingo night will be July 8 at 6:30 p.m. So, mark your calendars!
Providence Baptist Church had a wonderful homecoming. Former pastor, Mark Seals, sang before he brought the message. He did a great job with both, followed by a delicious meal.
VBS will start on Sunday, June 11, at 5:30 p.m. at Providence. It will end on Wednesday, June 14, with Family Night at 7 p.m. Then Sardis will start the next week. I’ll have times in next week’s column.
Don’t forget the Old Rock Jail will be open on Sunday from 2 to 4. If you’ve not been, it’s interesting to see artifacts from past decades, as well as the actual jail.
While the regular school session has ended for the year, they are having summer school with some of the buses picking up and dropping off at select locations. So, be on the lookout for those as you travel the county.
I’m still trying to resolve my feelings on losing my mama. Some days are better than others. I’ve lost count of the times I’ve made a note to myself or thought about calling to tell mama something. Strange to not have her to discuss things. I found this poem I want to share. “Death takes the body. God takes the soul. Our mind holds the memories. Our heart keeps the love. Our faith lets us know we will meet again. – Author unknown”
My scripture this week is about love and strength. Psalm 28:7 reads, “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me. My heart leaps with joy, and with my song I praise Him.”
God is the source of my power and protection; therefore, I am thankful. He guides me, and I know that He will be with me in whatever I encounter. We should praise God daily, for He makes all things possible.
So many times we don’t stop and praise Him for all He does. Our prayers are often filled with requests. We need to show God our love not only in our actions, but our thoughts. I encourage you to use prayer as a time to thank and praise God without asking for anything.
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!
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.
