Holly Ridge Happenings

Rules for Today


Do nothing that you would not like to be doing when Jesus comes. 

Go to no place you would not like to be found when Jesus comes. 

Say nothing that you would not like to be saying when Jesus Comes. 

A 24 year old boy seeing out the window from a train shouted: “Dad, Look, the trees are going behind.” Suddenly he again exclaimed; “Dad, look, the clouds are running with us.”

A young couple sitting nearby looked at the boy’s childish behavior with pity and said to the father, “Why don’t up take your son to a good doctor? 

The father explained, “I did and we are just coming from the hospital. My son was blind from birth, he just got his eyes today.”

Don’t judge anyone in life. Every single person on earth has a story!

We often hear, “Life is short, better enjoy it.” How about, Eternity is long, better prepare for it.


Bobbie Stokes is home and recuperating from her complete knee replacement. Says she is doing fine and we do hope so!

Well, it was that time of the year seems like it was a short summer now that school bells are ringing, buses are running, teachers and children are back in the classroom and other needed workers  are in their places. 

Let us pray for a great and safe school years! 


Kelsie came by after being in Houston for two weeks opening yet another new Grubs Burger bar and Grill. Only here for a few hours before going home to Lafayette. Yes, short visit is better than none at all. So true!
