Winter has finally arrived with beauty and special family activities. Many families look forward to this time of year to participate in special activities, with football and tailgating being one of the favorites.
Some like to go camping, and I can’t imagine why. My family went camping years ago, but I was not one to participate willingly, but would occasionally go along to keep the peace. Sometimes you just have to be a team player with activities that are not your favorite.
The library in this area, located in Ben Lomond, closed its doors at the end of the year. It seems that it was not used to the fullest capacity. I am sure that there were not many people in the area that knew the library was there.
It could have been most people in this hi-tech age have their own computer and didn’t use it as much as needed.
It would have been good to keep it open and introduce the children back to books.
We now have children in the community and the school bus has resumed its pick up, again. We are still a growing community.
Prayers are requested for our sick and shut-ins. Lela James in the nursing facility, Ernest Greenlee at home, and Sylvester Crosslin at St. Michael hospital. Also for our Country and its citizens, and for Israel.
Condolences to the family of Ruth Ann Loggings, Chicago, IL. Formally from the Gravel Hill community, who passed away on Monday. We pray for your strength during this time of separation.
CHRISTIAN REFRESHER: PHILLIPIANS 3:13-15 KJV
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended, but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded; and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
LOVE IS THE KEY!
