Things Remembered

Many people give engraved items in honor of a special day or shared moment. If you have received such a gift, you know what a treasure it can become. People like to remember happy times and significant events. Memories are precious; they keep us connected to people, places, and events that have shaped us and influence our lives.

In 1 Corinthians 11, Paul gives instructions concerning the Lord’s Supper and in doing so reminds the Corinthian Christians of two things; their personal salvation in Christ and that participation in the Supper carries inward and outward aspects. Inwardly. participants are to examine themselves spiritually before taking the Supper (v 27-28). Outwardly participants proclaim through the Supper the Lord’s death until He returns (v 26). Paul said that our observance of the Lord’s Supper is to be done to help us to remember Christ. Perhaps we are never more the church, the bride of Christ, than when we gather at the table to worship by remembering HIM. May we never forget.

Bro. Robert MaGaha from Homer stopped in on Wednesday afternoon. He had been to visit Virgil Thornton Jr. His plans were to visit his brother, then Glenda Rawls and Brenda Whittington but I don’t know if he made all stops since he was pushing time because of prayer meeting at his church. But He had time for his ice cream cone. Ha!

My Greg and Jeanne celebrated their 40th anniversary on the 12th and enjoyed a night away over in Shreveport. Well his mother could have fixed him a grill cheese sandwich (with meat) Ha. thats a joke!

Coming by on Saturday were Bob and Sandra Hollinworth from Vicksburg. They are friends of David and Kay Shanks in Bossier City and were to meet them at the Warehouse in Monroe for dinner. I enjoyed their brief visit.

Danille Duckworth and Jax spent time in Shreveport on Saturday night. They enjoyed the Cirque du Soleil show. Quite interesting I’m sure.

Carter Cheek celebrated his 12th birthday on Sunday with cake, ice cream (Forte Nite Cake) and blow up game in the yard. Cold and wet, yes, but the kids enjoyed it. They started celebrating on Saturday, taking the Stokes twins, Cater and Aiden to the Mardis Gra parade, then grilled burgers when they got home.

Judgement Day, on that day it it will not matter how popular you are, the riches and possessions you have acquired will be meaningless. Your opinion, culture, race or religion will not matter. On that day only a personal relationship with JESUS CHRIST is all that will matter.
