Holly Ridge Happenings


It isn’t a fairytale or a storybook, and it doesn’t always come easy. Love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on and never letting go. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define and impossible to live without. Love is work, but most of all Love is realizing that every hour, every minute and every second was worth it because you  did it together.


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, It is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trust, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. -- 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 .   

Above all else, love each other deeply. 


A thought:  If people opened their bibles as often as they opened their mouths, this world would be a better place.

People, our love and prayers and thanks go out to the farmers who raise everything we eat: food and milk, the cotton for our clothes.  If it were not for them we would have zip (nothing). 

So should you meet a farmer, thank Him. 

To the doctors, nurses, first responders, thank you for your time, love and concern during these trying days, we thank you also.
