Holly Ridge Happenings

A new day is like a new painting, draw lines with prayers, erase mistakes with forgiveness, dip the brush with lots of patience and color it with love and respect. 

Two people read the same Bible. One sees reasons to love, the other reasons to hate. One see’s unity, the other sees division. One finds prejudice, the other equality. One discovers compassion, the other, indifference. One goodwill, the other malice. Two people, one book, two views. The book is a mirror, the reflection is you.

The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the spirit is life and peace. Romans 8:6

As we waste our breath complaining about life, someone out there is breathing their last. Appreciate what you have. Be thankful and stop complaining. Complain less. Have more smiles, less stress. Less hate, become more Blessed.

When you get what you want, that’s God’s direction. When you don’t get what you want, that’s God’s protection.

All of us will die one day. You can do nothing about that, but if you give your life on Earth to God, death for you will not be the end, but rather a new beginning.

Brenda Goodman and Her niece, Anna motored up to Branson last week to see what they could get into. I’m sure they were good girls and they did enjoy the presentation of Noah and lots of other places and things of interest.

Make sure you test positive for Faith. Keep your distance from Doubt, and Isolate yourself from Fear. Trust God through it all. Our struggles aren’t strange to God. He understands us better than we do, and he loves us. 

One Creater -- God, One Race -- Human, One Blood -- Red, One Problem -- Sin, One Solution -- Jesus Christ.


Oh! My, the Covid-19 has just about shut everything down. I suppose people are not doing much traveling. Better safe than sorry, right?

Limping To Jerusalem

When I see a very old church, I think about the people who worshipped there. 

They endured two world wars, depression, legalized racism, crop failures, the polio epidemic, financial hardship with no food stamps, Medicare, Welfare, Medicaid, Social Security or unemployment benefits. 

They didn’t have TV or DVD’s or smart phones or fast food or a thousand different ways to entertain themselves on long winter nights.
