The beautiful, spring like weather we are blessed with this week makes it difficult to remember that we are still in the winter months. Today, it was warmer outside than it was in my house. That good ole sunshine sure felt great. I’m looking forward to some more of that warm, sunny weather.
Now that the Christmas and New Year celebrations are over, we can now look forward to Valentines Day on Feb. 14, and Easter which, according to the calendar, is scheduled for March 31. They will both be upon us before we realize it. I’d better get busy and get my Christmas decorations taken down and put away.
Jake Hampton opened the Sunday service at Red Bank by leading the congregation in singing hymns. Jerry Huff welcomed members and guest and introduced the Sunday school lesson called, “Nahum: A Message of God’s Judgment.” This lesson was taken from Nahum, chapters 1&2. The main idea of this lesson in short is: Be careful how we live our lives because chickens surely do come home to roost.
Brother Les chose Romans 6 and John 11 as text for the morning sermon. In Romans 6 we are reminded that as Christ died for our sins and was raised from the dead, showing power over death, we likewise should die unto our sins, and be alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. (Romans 6:12)
Visiting with Maxine Lirley recently was James and Debbie Lirley, Gary and Alice Lirley, Jeane Huff and Ralph and Barbadeen Laughlin. Maxine suddenly became ill with a stomach flu last Saturday. Fortunately, it was 24 hour flu so she felt much better by Sunday afternoon. The flu season has begun. We need to get our flu shot so that we have a better chance of avoiding the serious effects of these dangerous virus’ that are easily spread.
I noticed a sign in the entry of the Heart of the Ozarks Healthcare Center asking visitors to please not enter if they have any cold or flu symptoms.
