All the news about the coronavirus is scary! To find out how to protect yourself from it, go to https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention-treatment.html.
I know you all know to wash your hands, not shake hands or hug anyone and all of that. Just be careful where you go. Do not take public transportation, and do not go out of the country. Postpone vacations until it is under control, and spring breaks should be spent at home. We really do not need to panic but just use common sense.
Please continue to pray for our neighbors and friends in our community and for others: Kristen Carlton Jones, Tim Landers, Brianna Landers, Gary Hyatt, Carolyn Brasfield, Jim Ruth, Eloise Murley, Samantha Mosier, Woodie Deming, Betty Quarles, Ms. June Davis, Carolyn Goff, Johnny Roach and his son Johnny, Jr.
Please reach out to our shut-ins and nursing home folks. Also, remember our military, our law enforcement and first responders, and do not forget the ones that have lost loved ones. Galatians 6:2 – “Carry each other’s burdens and in this way will fulfill the law of Christ.”
Birthday wishes for Ethan Ross and Ed Kiestler on March 12 and Dixie Mays and Jean Kiestler on March 14. I hope your special day will bring you lots of happiness, love and fun.
Quote of the week: “To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one’s self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived – this is to have succeeded.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Devotion: Your Security is Eternal: “The penalty of your sin was death, physically and spiritually. Faith is the means by which the saving work of Christ is applied to the individual. Salvation comes to you when you place your trust in Christ’s death on the cross as the complete payment for sin. If you have placed your trust in Christ’s death on the cross as the payment for your sin, you are an eternal member of the family of God. Acting like God’s child didn’t get you in. Not acting like one won’t get you tossed out. Salvation is forever. I am so glad that my acceptance is not based on performance, Lord. Thank You that salvation is forever. I am a permanent member of Your family.” – Charles Stanley, The Power of the Cross
