Holly Ridge Happenings
By Shirley Thompson
Thank you God for everything
Thank you God for everything, the big things and the small. For every good gift comes from God the Giver of them all. And all to often we accept without any thanks or praise. The gifts God sends as blessings each day in many ways. First, thank you for the little things that often comes our way, the things we take for granted but don’t mention when we pray, then thank you for the “miracles” We are much to blind to see, and give us new awareness of our many gifts from Thee, and help us to remember that the key to life is living is to make each prayer a prayer of thanks and every day Thanksgiving! For of Him and through Him, and to Him, are all things: To whom be glory forever. Romans 11:36
Mrs. Mary Russell called to tell me what an enjoyable day the COA of Rayville had. They went to the Chenault Museum on Tuesday to see the Vietnam Wall of Veterans. Afterward they enjoyed a great lunch at Granny’s in Monroe. Had a wonderful time. Thanks “Ole Granny” Ha.
Coming by on Saturday for ice cream was Mary Alexander Clark and grandson’s Alex, Jordan and Jim from West Monroe. Was good to see that young lady always.
