Hello from Deanburg again! I hope everyone is well and happy!
Happy belated birthdays are Michelle Julian on Aug. 25, Gina Tully on Aug. 27, Addison Ross on Aug. 28, Breanna Landers on Aug. 29 and Shane Burkeens on Aug. 30. I am sorry I did not do the news last week to have your birthdays in here.
Birthdays this week are Jake Weaver on Aug. 31, and starting a new month of September, we have Renee Landers, Beverly Collins and Dakota Roberts on Sept. 6. Have a nice day celebrating!
I hope Jerry and Linda Dowdy had a good anniversary on Aug. 22. Hope you have many more.
Prayers requested for Kristen Jones, Woodie Deming and Joyce Stewart. If you need prayers or want to put a friend or relative on our list please call me. Do not forget to pray for our law enforcement, county and state government and our military and our nation.
I had a lady call me this week asking that I put her request in my news. She is looking for a Jim Moss family. He is deceased, but she told me that he was a member of our community at one time. A friend of Mr. Moss gave her some family photographs, and she is trying to get in contact with his family to give them these photos. She feels sure that they would want them. If you have any news of this family, please call 426-2594. His last residence was at Mouse Tail Landing on the Tennessee River.
Our devotion this week is: Faithful Friends – “‘I will search for faithful people to be my companions. Only those who are above reproach will be allowed to serve me.’ (NLT) (Psalm 101:6)
“Be careful with the company you keep; they may not be serving you well. When mingling with friends, you will find that you learn a thing or two from them. We pick up both positive and negative influences from our friends. Are you spending time with people who make you a better person? You will be rewarded if your companions are faithful.” http://www.jctrois.com/dailybibledevotion/devotion.html?devo=PFrm7LT41T
Quote of the week: “You change your life by changing your heart.” – Max Lucado
