Holly Ridge Happenings

When Jesus Cried Out

“It is finished”

Righteousness was perfected, divine justice was satisfied, blood was shed, redemption was paid, sins were forgiven, reconciliation was achieved, death was conquered and salvation was secured.


My visitors last week were the Hall sisters, Elsie Hart from Start, and Patsy Mann from Downsville. They were doing their spring flowers for the cemetery for their loved ones. They are so faithful! I saw Beverly Lyle on Friday at the Beauty Doctors. I had not seen her in quite a while, still the same, no big change, unlike me, Ha!

Mrs. Mary Russell (ole granny) called me from Start to tell me how much hail they got last Thursday. It was bad because I saw a video. Quite a bit, looked like snow on the ground. Thanks ole granny!

Sunday visitors were Matt and Janet Philly and their daughter and son-in-law Hannah and Ethan Bossier from South Louisiana. I had not seen Hannah since she got married. Of course it was ice cream cone time. I did enjoy them.

Friday was Mrs. Myrtis Mann’s 98th birthday. Richard and Patsy Mann carried her to Vivian  to the Sam’s Southern Eatery Restaurant where the others, Glyn and Kim Mannn and Hilda Pylant, were there with grand and great grandchildren for the surprise. There 2ere 25 who helped the sweet lady have a happy birthday.

Our heartfelt sympathy with love goes out to Rita Mann and family in the loss of her husband, Carlos Mann Sr., God’s love will sustain them in their time of sorrow.

Without love, we feel nothing. Without dreams, we accomplish nothing. Without God, we are nothing.
