Greetings to the People of Chester County everywhere. For this is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it! Well, the Lord has blessed you and me to see another new week. Each and every day, I am so thankful that the Lord is watching over our daughter LaWanna.Yes, she is still wearing her life vest for her heart. Every day, her heart is getting stronger only by the healing power of the Lord. Yes! We are standing on the word of God and trusting in Him.
Isaiah 53:4-5 reads, “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Someone reading this column knows what I am talking about! Thank you to all of you that are praying for her!
On Sunday, the snow came fast and went away just as fast. Thank you, Lord, for the frozen rain. It was so beautiful fallen from the sky.
The City of Henderson would like to say congratulations to Dwight Bingham for recognition of outstanding service, loyalty and devotion while being a member of The Lion Club and also to Renee Phelps for dedicated humanitarian services. Great job to both of you!
Most of us enjoyed the day off from work and school on Monday because of Dr. King. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an influential American civil rights leader. There was no big parade or a big celebration here in the City; however, he walked tall in what he believed in! He is most well-known for his campaigns to end racial segregation on public transport and for racial equality in the United States. His most famous address was the “I Have a Dream” speech. He was an advocate of non-violent protest and became the youngest man to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. He was assassinated on April 4, 1968 in Memphis. Do not allow the dream to die.
Happy Birthday to Glenda Jewell on Jan. 20 and Jackie Herron on Jan. 22. We pray the Lord bless you with many more.
On our prayer list this week: all of our children, our teachers and our families, the sick and shut-in, our men and women who are serving our country and also the incarcerated.
Chester County Head Start is accepting applications for three and four year olds for the 2022-23 school year. For more information, call 989-2561 or 989-5111.
To the people of Henderson, remember to patronize with our local businesses here in town; let us try to support our own as much as we can.
