Holly Ridge Happenings

Church is not something you go to, it’s a family you belong to. 

When you wake up say: Jesus, I love you.

When leaving the house, say: Jesus, come with me.

When you feel like crying, say: Jesus, hug me.

When you feel happy say: Jesus, I adore you.

When you do something, say, Jesus, help me.

When you make a mistake say, Jesus, forgive me.

When you go to sleep, say, Thank you, Jesus, and cover me with your Holy Mantle. God loves you.

Got a call from my faithful reader “Ole Granny” Mary Rusell. She wanted to thank Jim Taylor Chevrolet for the Christmas boxes they brought to the Council on Aging. There was food, paper goods etc. Things that everyone could use. They were all so grateful. Thank you, “Old Granny.”

Got another tidbit from my great grandson, Aiden Cheek. He also got best dressed in the third grade at start Elementary. Go boy.

Spending Saturday with Tanya Thompson was her son, Juri Thompson, and little Aubree Kate from Monroe. She loved some of Aunt Shirley’s ice cream.

Someone once said to Billy Graham: “If Christianity is valid, why is there so much evil in the world?”

To which he replied: “With so much soap, why are there so many dirty people in the world?”

Christianity, like soap, must be personally applied if it is to make a difference in our lives.

Driving out to Dallas on Thursday and boarding the “big bird” early Friday morning for Las Vegas were Tyler and Ashley Cheek, Carter and Aiden. Upon arriving they rented a car of course. They stayed at the New York, New York Hotel and Resort. Sites they saw were the Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon, Water Fountain at the Bellagio, world famous  Gold and Silver Pawn Shoppe, M&M  World and Hersey World. They walked for miles and miles. They were tired. At the Hoover Dam, one side is in Nevada and the other side is Arizona with an hour time difference. The had a great time and I’m sure lots of memories.
