Holly Ridge Happenings

They gathered His body so tattered and torn it was finished, the Savior had died. They carried Him gently to an empty tomb as the people watched, and they cried. The tomb was dark, dreary, and cold as they laid Him to rest evermore. They all quietly left not looking back as the stone was rolled to the door. Three days went by then all of a sudden the darkness was expelled by a light. He had arose, as He said He would do, the morning was so beautiful and bright. He soon would ascend back to his Father where He would sit by His side on His throne. He would make intercession on our behalf and we would never be lost nor alone.

“So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.”
Mark 16:19

Eugene and Karen traveled out to Lake Canroe Texas last weekend where thy entered the Lone Star Dutch Oven Cookoff. Eugene took first place with his shrimp soup and Karen won first place with her Grandma’s Carmel Apple pie. The recipe looks great and I intend to try it.

Cynthia and James Bracker from West Monroe were here briefly on Thursday. Alan and Patricia Thompson enjoyed having their nephew Pee Wee Carter, his wife Nancy and son Brandon from Los Angeles with them for a few days. I did get to see them this time.

It was good to have William Cade drop in on Monday. Thanks William and come back!

Hilda Clack was here from Tallulah on Tuesday. I thought she had forgotten about me. It had been a while since I last saw her.

Diane Cobb traveled over to Shreveport on Sunday to her daughter Denise’s home. She went to help with some chores for her daughter before the big party on Saturday. We at Bethel enjoyed some good preaching with Bro. Marion Callier, music with Wayne Smart and then the Liberty Boys on Wednesday night. Started the revival off with a great meal on Sunday just before the storm.
