After a rainy cold Sunday, this past week has been more spring like which brings occasional showers. Hopefully we don’t have any more severe cold temperatures. However, it is always possible to have a late frost or freeze even in April.
Happy birthday to all the February birthdays, especially the Leap Year folks since they haven’t had a birthday since 2020.
Richville Volunteer Fire Department will have Bingo on February 24 at 6:30, so go ahead and put it on your calendar. Everyone always has a great time even if they don’t win! Concessions are available, also.
By the time this is printed, the address for my parent’s estate sale will be public. It starts today and ends on Saturday, 9 – 3. It has been hard going through my mother’s things deciding what to keep, give away and sale. It has also increased my awareness of what I need to do before it becomes my daughter’s responsibility, which I hope is a long time yet.
Don’t forget you can drop off your taxes to be done in Rockford on Wednesdays from 9 to 2 at the Rockford Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. While walk-ins are welcome, you can call 256-234-0347 to make an appointment. Be sure you tell them it’s for the Rockford location.
This Sunday our church will have a catered meal and movie to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but with emphasis on the love Christ has for each of us. We had a lot of folks out this past Sunday, with some traveling and others sick. It seems COVID-19 and flu have been rampant in the community and school.
Since next week is Valentine’s Day, the Bible verses for this week are found in Romans 8:37-39, which read, “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Nothing in existence is more powerful than the love God has for us. His love is so great that He sent Jesus, His only Son, to die on the cross for our sins. We must have faith and understanding that God loves us. He is able to do things that cannot be explained other than it is because of His love for us.
He loves us no matter what we do. Even when we disobey His will and stray from Him to do worldly things, He still loves us. However, we have to allow God into our lives and take control to receive the depth of His love for us. Reading in our Bibles and offering our prayers to God strengthens our faith in Him. I encourage you to read your Bibles daily and have prayer time. We need to not only talk to God, but listen to what He tells us.
Pray for those in our community that are experiencing sickness, as well as those that are grieving with the loss of a loved one. We need to remember the shut-ins and their families, as 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!
