God is my conscience, Jesus lives in my heart… this blog is about what I see, what I think, what I do and how I serve God
March/April, 2008 – Excerpts from “The Light” on Vinegar Hill By Frances R.
March & April 2008 Dear Friends and Members of Mount Pleasant United Methodist Church. Hello Again!!!!!! I will begin with my apology for being so late in getting my little bit of news out to you but whatever this “BUG” was that had me under the weather for the last six weeks has really had me down for the count. Don‘t know when it has taken so long to get back what you might call normal; however, I know that so many people have had this same complaint so hope everyone is on the mend a feeling better.
Can you believe that Spring is upon us????? I know we had winter but time goes by so fast it is here and gone before you can blink an eye. But I believe Spring is a beautiful time, when the earth comes alive with the beauty of new life, new buds on the trees the flowers coming up through the ground. Before long there will be beauty everywhere as the trees and flowers show their beautiful colors and you can see Gods’ handy work all around us. How can anyone deny the presence of GOD????????????
VALENTINE POT LUCK DINNER. What a wonderful time we had and if you missed it you really missed out on a wonderful day of food, fellowship and fun. I had set up for 80 people and there were only a few places with no one in them. I can tell you; there all really some great cooks between our three churches. The children from Tome Church sang several songs, the young people from Mt. Pleasant sang and the Asbury singers really entertained us with several songs. This is something we are going to have to put on our calendar and do again real soon. It was such a blessing for us all to be together as one in fellowship. Let’s think of the next time we can get together and do it again??????.
Something to think about:
A woman was asked by a coworker, “What is it like to be a Christian?” The coworker replies, “It is like being a pumpkin.” God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.
He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for all the world to see”.
