Holly Ridge Happenings

Grapes must be crushed to make wine. Diamond form under pressure. Olives are pressed to release oil. Seeds grow in darkness. Whenever you feel crushed, under pressure, pressed or in darkness, you’re in a powerful place of transformation and transmutation. Trust the process. Trust God.

 Jesus was not an American. He was not white, black, Asian or hispanic. Neither was he a Pentecostal, Baptist, Methodist or Catholic. He was and is the Son of God. He will never fit into an American, nor a religious mold. The sooner we try to be like him and stop trying to make him be like us, the sooner we will see his purpose fulfilled in the world that he died for.


Aunt Lannie and I traveled to West Monroe Sunday afternoon, down on Redcut Loop Road to surprise Bro. Bob and Evelyn Holloway at Watson Baptist Church where they were honored for the 25 years of service there. 

We had a great time and they were surprised!

Here last week was Corrien Stokes and her great granddaughter, Hannah from Beeville, Texas. She had spent some time with her sons, Richard and Trey and their families. She was here for the birthday party for her twin granddaughters, Kenzie and Addie.

Naaman and Jeanette Barrier had visitors from Mississippi this week. His brother and wife, Thomas and Betty Barrier, and sister, Dorothy Johnson. They had a great time fellowshipping and remembering about old times. Lots of good food was consumed including this great ice cream cones!
