THINGS TO BE THANKFUL FOR: Safe travels, old friends, and new beginnings.

 

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:  “One of the things that’s beautiful about New Orleans is how culturally rich we are and how well we have worked together. People call us a gumbo. It’s really important that we get focused on the very simple notion that diversity is a strength, it’s not a weakness.”—Mitch Landrieu (Mayor of New Orleans)

From the Pulpit by Pastor, Charles Glidewell

 

 

      On Accepting the Season You’re In You can’t do it all, and you certainly can’t do it all at once. I don’t know about you, but for a person like me that’s hard to accept. If your life is like mine your plate is full and, still, you’re doing your best to make room for other things. Life can easily turn into a sinking swamp of feeling guilty for saying no to things that you genuinely don’t have the time (or energy) for on the one hand, and longing to accomplish all of those postponed dreams and ambitions on the other, all while fulfilling your day - to - day obligations on time and with a smile.

Salt Lake City mission trip by Sherry Rosenblad

 

Last weekend, First Baptist Church of Rotan sent a group of six people on a mission trip to Salt Lake City, UT.

   We started preparing for this trip several weeks ago with intense study, discussion, and prayer. Half of those going had never been on a mission trip, so one could imagine that there was some anxiety. We didn’t know exactly what to expect, but were committed to doing God’s will.

THINK ABOUT THIS by Larry Williamson

 

Have you ever stopped to think about Heaven? How do we get there, and what is it going to be like when we get there? God has given us so much. He placed us on this earth and has given us everything that we have to sustain us; even things for our enjoyment. 

   He sent His Son that our sins could be forgiven, and we can be a member of His kingdom on earth. We get into His kingdom by doing what Jesus teaches in the Bible. We have our sins forgiven by dying with Christ in Baptism, and we are raised free from sin and are added to Christ’s kingdom (the church) on earth.

2 Cents Worth by Carol Greenway Holland

 

 Well, friends best laid plans sure got shot down.  I had told Joe coming back from Kentucky I wanted to get my quilt finished.  I have been painting a flower garden and is actually for me!!!!! I had painted on it some on Monday and Tuesday and told Joe could finish it on Friday.  He said, “Okay let’s give you a rest from painting and go get the oil changed.  We got home at 5:00 and wow the bottom fell out.  He rushed me to Grace Medical Center on 50th Street to Dr. Reedy.

Letter to the Editor

 

 Dear Editor,    

    I have been putting this letter together for over 5 years, based on my observations and experiences. As the spouse of a former school board member, and now being an elected official, I’ve learned some important things.

Guest Editorial

By: Preston Morrow

In Fisher County, there have been many decades of proprietary education & political interests. As objectively as I can be, let me state, it seems the combined economic benefit to the county’s populous could be limitless. By doing what? Think about a centrally located combined school system! Think of the additional educational advantages: elimination of duplicative operating costs, a more competitive sports environment, no more 6-man football, less travel costs to other distant 6-man ‘away-game’ schools, reduced costs of a smaller administrative & teacher expense thru combining the schools.

Two Cents Worth

by by Carol Greenway Holland

Grab you a glass of tea and set with me awhile, at the rate we’re going it may take two glasses of tea. We’ve had computer problems at Aspermont today, and finally hopefully they have them fixed and we can get our week started!!!! Joe and I had a good trip back to Texas, got in last Wednesday. We left on Tuesday, the trip was great, the crops were so pretty all the way, course it had rained in Kentucky and all the way to Texas. The crops were pretty, but late, that rain they had in May set them back in planting their crops. The soy beans are waist high to Joe but they are just blooming, so they like us, hoping for a late frost. We spent the night in Arlington with Bob and Ann Woodruff, and of course she never wants us to leave, but I told her we’d come back someday!!! I wish we lived closer but she can’t live in West Texas without getting sick, and I’d be sick if I had to live in all that traffic.
