Holly Ridge Happenings

Once a man was asked, “What did you gain by regularly praying to God?” 

The man replied, “Nothing, but let me tell you what I lost: Anger, ego, greed, depression, insecurity and fear of death. Sometimes, the answer to our prayers is not gaining but losing; which ultimately is the gain.”

Worry is a conversation you have with yourself about things you cannot change. PRAYER is a conversation you have with God about things HE can change.

Christ over viruses and infectious diseases

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” -- Josua 1:9.

Here one day last week was Kelsie Clake from Lafayette and friend Carrie from Shreveport. Short visit, of course, but as usual, better than none at all. Right?

Lord, Raise up the church in America! Use us to conquer the powers of darkness at work in America, in the name of Jesus. Make a commitment to pray daily for a spirit of repentance to come upon the church in the United States. Thank the Lord that His mercy triumphs over judgment. Pray for the healing, peace, and security to come to this nation.

Saw a quote that said, “Speak to people in a way that if they died the next day you’d be satisfied with the last thing you said to them.”

It was “Coffee Time” at the store on Friday when Ralph Odom, a deputy, stopped by. He said he was checking on the widows and informed. It didn’t matter he had coffee with us and we did enjoy his visit.

Dan and Carol Little from West Monroe drove over on Saturday to visit. He was so proud I had a new bucket of strawberry ice cream Ha.  The were gonna go by and check on his brother Bill and Fay Little. Always good to see them.
