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.

Time spent in prayer is never wasted. When you feel like you’re drowning in life, don’t worry. Your lifeguard walks on water. He will hold your hand.

Tanya Thompson enjoyed her birthday on March 16th, with dinner at her daughters’, Mara and Kyle Brown in Monroe. Helping to share this occasion were Yuri and Maria Thompson and Becky Aubree.

Well spring is here and it was a beautiful first day on the 19th, but we have had plenty of rain since then. The showers will bring spring flowers, so look up. They’re gonna come. Ha!

Well out of the mouth of babes come some truth. Connie Dove’s Little great grandson, Chance, told her that Mrs. Thompson has the best ice cream ever! Thanks Chance you are a “doll” Ha!

Here is praying that this COVID19 will soon come to a halt. I don’t know so much of this “lock down” There will probably be some very long days.
