There were no emergencies in the Cliffs this week. We have had some amazing winter weather, Many have suffered snow storms, floods and other catastrophes, but we have been blessed to enjoy what I call a mild winter. I am hoping that the ground hog will not see his shadow to indicate more winter.
The Delaney and Crosslin send their thanks for all the prayers, flowers, food and phone calls received during their time of grief.
Prayers are requested for the Bruce and Crosslin during their time of separating from their family member, James Bruce, who died last week. Also the Wilson-Watson family desire your prayers as they say good by to their ,mother, sister, aunt and friend, Letha Watson, who passed on February 1,2016. We all need each other when trial and sadness comes in our lives.

Campbell is the president and CEO of the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering, currently lives in Harlem with his wife. We Congratulate Dr. Campbell for his contribution to science and arts,
The thief cometh not, but for to steal and kill, and to destroy; I am come that you might have life, and that more abundantly.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they that follow me; And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish; neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.
