Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.
~2 Thessalonians 3:16~
Read the Bible in 2020 – November 8
Please continue to pray for Mrs. Doris Young who is still not well. Pray for her strength to continue to fight this battle. Pray for her family too.
Please pray for the churches in our area that are still unable to meet in person. As you pray for the churches, pray for the individuals of those churches, especially for those who are sick. Worship is both for group and individual participation. Most of our local churches now have other options for weeks when that is needed. One good benefit I have discovered it the option to participate in multiple church services some weeks. You may even have the option to attend your church in person and other churches online. For us, right now, it is all online.
Beverly J. Scott of Summit, Mississippi | 1948 – 2020 | Obituary
Mrs. Beverly Jones Scott, 72, of Summit, MS went to be with the Lord on Saturday, November 7, 2020 at Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center in McComb, MS.
Mrs. Beverly was born on August 5, 1948 in Natchez, MS and was the daughter of Ralph Jones and Imogene Steele Jones. She lived her life for her family. She lived a life of service, putting God first, her husband and children and later, her grandbabies. Although she was very active in her community and church, her value of family was her heartbeat and she cherished each moment spent with them. Her friends describe her as a woman of integrity, kindness and never without a smile. She was known by many as “Mrs. Bev”, “Aunt Beverly”, “Sister” but her favorite title was “MiMi”. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
She is preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 48 years, Ernest Ray Scott; one brother, Ralph Donald Jones and one grand-daughter, Khloe Faith Price.
She is survived by her two daughters, Tara Price and Timmy of Summit, MS and Melanie Nichols and David of Summit, MS; two brothers, Mark Jones and Michelle of Texas and Chris Jones and Debbie of Texas; one sister, Kay Hutson of Meadville, MS; three grandchildren, Kaleb Price and Amber of Georgia, Kolbi Price and Kelee Price of Summit, MS and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends.
Visitation will be Monday, November 9, 2020 from 11AM until time of service at 1PM at Sharkey Funeral Home in Summit, MS with Dr. David Millican officiating the services. A burial will follow in Pike Memorial Gardens Cemetery in McComb, MS.
Pallbearers will be Tyler Scott, Darby Scott, Jerry R. Smith, Jerry Chapman, Bobby Thomas, Ira Cleveland, Roy Hendrick, Harry Young and Danny Easley.
We met the Scott family in the late 80’s. They were a blessing to our lives. May God continue to work in and through this family.
Thankfulness – Day 8
Today, I am thankful for the seasons God created for us. My favorite season has always been spring, but this year fall is running a close second. Spring has been my favorite because I usually spend days, and more days, working in my yard. The weather is “Just right”. This fall, I have been able to work outside (with much help from my husband) and have enjoyed different seasonal flowers. We like to work together in beautiful weather God created for us. The beauty of the flowers is something we both enjoy. It’s not for other people. It is for us! Even watering is a joy as we do it together. I think these two seasons provide a special togetherness that we both appreciate. It’s always fun to talk about what we want to do next. I’m thankful we have the time and health to do so this lovely fall season.
Today’s prayer focus is on churches. Pray for each one to be able to continue to serve their congregations well during these trying times. Pray for members to find ways to stay connected to each other and to God.
