There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

Ready for more good news? Doctors in Memphis were able to make an adjustment in Gail Smith‘s port without having to put in a new one. Thanking God for that and praying for Gail as the port will soon be put into use.
My high school friend, Sandy Toney, is hospitalized at St. Tammany. Sandy has been sick and losing weight for many months. Please pray with me that they will soon have her on the mend.

Follow God’s example, therefore,
as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love,
just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us
as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
~ Ephesians 5:1-2 (NIV)~
Here we are on love again. Is there any doubt about how important love is?

Bible Study – I’m went to town yesterday wondering if anyone else would show up for Bible study. Six ladies attended despite the cold temperatures and the light rain. God teaches us lessons we need to learn. Don’t doubt Him or those who want to learn about His Word!
Lottie Moon Missions March – We will show our support for missions, especially the Lottie Moon emphasis for international missions, on the last Sunday of January. That will be a good day to give to the offering or to give again. If you notice the Christmas tree by the organ. you will notice more ornaments on the tree. Each one represents $500.00 toward our goal. Let’s get our tree decorated all the way to the top! Whether we give that day or not, we’ll all be able to walk around the church to say we support missions.
Stay warm. If you have a problem, ask for help! There are people who will be glad to assist you!
