THERE WERE NO EMERGENCIES IN THE CLIFF THIS WEEK. We did get some tornado watches and big thunderstorms with heavy rain. The electricity did remain on and I was glad for that. You can’t imagine how dark it gets until you have lived in the country.
The Mineral Springs High School graduation exercise will be on Friday, the 13th , at 7:30 p.m., at the Mineral Springs football field. The valedictorian will be Olivia Coulter and the salutatorian will be Camry Stewart. Congratulations to all the graduates.

I hope every Mother was honored by their family and friends on Mother’s Day. My family was not home, but I heard from everyone with a phone call or a nice big card or gift. I spent the day with my Christian family in church. It was a blessed day.
We want to send our sincere condolences to the Savage family who had a death in their family. Our prayers are with you, Prayers are requested for the Brewer family, Lela James who was able to be in church on Sunday, the Greenlee family and Milton Hendrix, who is beginning to feel better. Ruben Pauley is not feeling well, so add him to your list. Thank you for sharing in the well being of our neighbors and friends, call me if you have a prayer need.

CHRISTIAN REFRESHER; HEBREWS 4:12 KJV
For the WORD of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
LOVE IS THE KEY!
