Holly Ridge Happenings

It is not the length of life, but the depth of life that matters.

Daily prayer will diminish your cares. 

The secret of success is to start from scratch and keep on scratching.

 I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for, perfect is God’s business! 

 When you reach the end of your rope, you will find the hem of His garment!

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you: Jesus Christ and the American G.I. One died for your soul, the other died for your freedom!
