Is Patient, is kind, 

It does not envy, 

It does not boast, 

It is not proud, 

It is not rude, 

It is not self-seeking, 

It is not easily angered, 

Keeps no record of wrongs, 

Does not delight in evil, 

Rejoices with the truth, 

Always protects,

Always trusts, 

Always hopes, 

Always perserves.

Never Fails.


Holly Ridge Happenings

Three things in life that one gone, never come back: time, words opportunity. 

Three things in life that can destroy a person: anger, pride, unforgiveness.

Three things in life that are never certain: fortune success, dreams. 

Three things in life that make a person: commitment, sincerity, hard work.

Three things in life that are most valuable: love, family and friends, kindness.

Three things life that you should never lose: hope, peace, honesty.

Three things that are constant: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.

Holly Ridge Happenings

“God won’t give you any more than you can handle.” 

Odd, I can’t seem to find that verse.

I’m guessing Job would take exception to that cliche. So would Joseph. Paul did. 

“We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself.” 

Why would God call him to experience hurt more than he could handle? Read on.

 “So that we might not rely on ourselves but on God.” 

Holly Ridge Happenings

A boy asked his father, “Dad, what is the size of God?

Then the father looked up at the sky and saw a plane and asked his son. “What is the size of this plane?” 

The boy replied: “It is very small, I can hardly see it.”  

Then, the father took him to the airport and as they approached the plane, he asked, “Now, my son, how big is this plane?

 The boy replied “Wow dad, it’s huge!”

 Then the father told him “God’s size depends on how close or far you are to him. The closer you are to Him, the greater and greater He will be in you life.”
