Holly Ridge Happenings

The Unlocked Door

The daughter of a widow had left her mother’s house. Led astray by others, she had forsaken the guidance of her mother and her spiritual training. Diligently her mother prayed for the child. Her efforts bombarding the throne of grace were not futile.

The child became burdened by her sin, and she returned home late one night. It was near midnight, and she was surprised to find the door unlocked. Her mother later explained ot her why it was unlatched.

“Never, my child, night or day, has that door been fastened since you left. I knew that you would come back some day, and I was unwilling to keep you waiting for a single moment.” 

That illustrates how God leaves the door open for us, so we can always return to him. No matter how wayward we have become. 

His door is always open! 

Jesus, sees our sin more clearly than anyone, yet He loves us more than anyone!

Greg and Jeanne Thompson and Bobby and Carolyn Post traveled down to Orange Beach for a few days. Jeanne and Carolyn enjoyed the beach and sand, while Greg and Bobby just relaxed in the condo.

I visited in Mer Rouge last Thursday with my Sistrunk cousins, Sharon, Mike and Sandra. Hadana enjoyable visit. I also enjoyed seeing the beautiful “White Gold” cotton between here and there. 

It had been some time since I was up that way. 

Vanessa Thompson and Debbie Prine flew to San Antonio for a day of banking classes. They had a tiring trip but did enjoy it.

I enjoyed Mr. Pat Guyses coming by on Saturday morning for a visit. 

There is but one question and that is “what is the will of God that settles all other questions?”
