It's A Haumesser Thing

Growing up I remember my Mom had a habit of taking on huge projects that generally had a very short time frame in needing to be accomplished. Usually it was things she wanted to get done before Dad got home from work so she could surprise him. Other times, she'd get a wild hair and want to construct something or improve things before a big shindig.

Even at a young age us kids would get caught up in the excitement of Mom's projects and tear in right along with her, eager to take on the challenge. The first day was always the most fun. The second day would be more mundane, then the last few days would get tense as time grew short and we exhausted ourselves running in high gear for days on end.

Facebook Feedback"

I originally joined Facebook when a long-lost cousin sent me an invitation.

No one had heard from this cousin in ages when I got a note out of the blue. Facebook was relatively new then and I hadn't considered joining. But I figured if I could reconnect with family I wouldn't hear from otherwise, why not?

Since then, I've become a writer, which means I sit by myself staring out the window for hours at a time. There are about 200 yards of sidewalk I watch most of the day like some sort of hypervigilant Neighborhood Watch. (Don't even think about committing a crime on my 200 yards!) It gets a little lonely and Facebook has turned into my virtual watercooler. I imagine that my Facebook friends are distant officemates I can hang out with for a few minutes whenever I need a break, when no one has recently tried to commit a crime on the sidewalk, or I have run fresh out of ideas. ...

Driftwood Outdoors By Brandon Butler

Two Ways to Miss a Turkey

Opening morning of Missouri's spring turkey season was off to a great start. I found myself facing a fortunate predicament of deciding which gobbler to pursue. A half-dozen birds were shattering the dawn with their raucous mating calls, but there was only one group. I decided three birds were better than one and took off north in pursuit of a trio of gobblers sounding off from a distant ridge.

Once I had pinpointed their location, and realized they were on the far side of steep ravine, I worked my way down to their level on the opposite side. As light began to creep into the forest, I made one last call to determine how close I was. All three gobbled hard. There was still room to close the distance, so I slipped down the hill another 50 yards, found a tree and settled in....

Jack's Fork Country Church
 

Dave Anderson welcomed the congregation and guests. Services began with the Pledge of Allegiance and an opening prayer, followed by songs of praise "He Lives", "Low in the Grave", and "Give Thanks".

Promise Reading: Luke 10:20 "However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 " Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God".

Bill Fullerton led us in prayer and the Lord's Prayer.

Special music was sung by Tommy Boyd. "Because he Lives"

The sermon was given by Tommy Boyd.

He appeared to a lot of people then. How do we know he lives? He lives in me. Those who trust in him. That's cause for celebration. When the world looks at it, those who live wordly, see it as defeat. it didn't look like a path to victory, but it was. Because he trimphed over death, we can have victory today. What did he win for us on the cross?

Communion was led by Allen Akers and the reading of Mathew 26:26-28.

The day's services were closed with songs and prayer.

Eminence Assembly of God

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE! It's been a very busy weekend here in Eminence. Friday evening we had Good Friday Service at the Baptist Church and it was well attended with beautiful songs and the 14 Stations of the Cross. Saturday we saw so many people out Carrying the Cross. Saturday evening we had the BEST Country Show Program, Adult Easter Egg Hunt and while at this we were entertained with music from the Arrowhead Campground. Had a great turnout for the Adult Egg Hunt and a great time as well. Eggs were hidden super well this year and lots of prizes were given out. Thanks to a couple young men with goofy senses of humor we had some "human" little critters lurking in the nearby woods spooking folks. It was a wonderful time! Thanks to all who volunteered and those who attended. Betty Burrus what a blessing you are to me! Don't know what I would do without you. We raised $275.00 for our Eminence Back To School Program.

Our Sunday morning message was because Christ lives, we too shall live! Because of the resurrection we have an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, unfading and eternal in a place called called Heaven. Behold the stone has been rolled away from the tomb where He was laid and He is risen!!!

We have been studying the Book of Romans on Wednesday night and Revelations on Sunday evening at the Assembly services. Have a wonderfully blessed week and remember to put Christ first and foremost in your life and he will bless you beyond measure!

Jesus Christ is Risen indeed, and that truth resonated throughout our Resurrection Sunday gathering. Thanks to the kids stop and Sunday School kids who began our worship with songs rejoicing in the Lord's power and grace. Bob Heller was our worship leader as we sang together "Rejoice the Lord is King, He Lives, Christ Arose and others rejoicing in our Lord conquering death. Jerald Conway led our communion devotion with Biblical facts concerning Jesus' death, burial and resurrection.

Added to the prayer list were Maxine Fry, Jim Rainbolt, Don and Vee Parker, and Mary Dyer along with lots of travellers.

Our youth and adult ensemble shared songs and skits that emphasized the theme "What Does This Mean?" Jesus' resurrection meant for the first century disciples a change of the derection and focus of their lives and an influence that reaches even to the present day. Does the resurrection of Jesus make a difference in your life? Is your sense of guilt relieved by the forgiveness of Jesus? Does it make a difference in what you are willing to sacrifice; or the focus of your actions? Does it make a difference in your eternal perspective?

Thanks to all who shared in the community Good Friday service and the adult Easter egg hunt and for the contributions for the Back to School Fair.

April 14, 2019

Every day we have people watching our behavior and listening to what we say. if we stay faithful to the lamb, they may want to know more about the one who takes away their sins. Who knows how many souls will come into the kingdom when we live each day in a way that says "Behold Jesus!" We make good choices and bad choices, and God continues to love us.

We had a great turnout for church this morning. What a blessing it was to have evryone there. Never give up on your church. If you have 2 people or fifty, God is always there in the midst.

Bro. Nick had a rather strange message today. He had a jelly bean messageĞand a message from JudeĞJelly beans (red) is for the blood he gave (green) is for the grass he made (yellow) is for his sun so bright (orange) is for the edge of night (black) is for the sins we made (white) is for the grace he gave (purple) is for His hours of sorrow (pink) is for our new testament. May every day be Easter in your heart. May the joy you feel on Easter morning be the joy of each day of your life.

Jude 1:2 Believers who have sought God's mercy also receive peace ("inner assurance" and "stability") and love. V. 1 Sanctified and preserved are in the perfect tense: Christians are once and continually "set apart and kept". They are kept for the return of Christ (see V. 21)

Please pray for our nation, leaders, our Winona community, our police department, the homeless and the needy, and pray for one another. Have a blessed week. Sunday school 10 a.m. Worship service 11 a.m. God bless.

Wisdom Calls

Pastor Steve Ellison

Proverbs chapter 8 is a familiar passage to most people who take their Bible study seriously. It provides wonderful insight into wisdom: what it is, its call, its virtues, its worth, its availability, and its rewards. Many have argued with good reason that Proverbs 8 also uses a personification of wisdom in describing the coming Messiah, Christ Himself.

Proverbs 8 begins with two rhetorical questions. In other words, God through His Word is asking a couple of questions, but He expects no answer because the answer is obvious. He simply wants us to consider and acknowledge the obvious. "Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice?" (Proverbs 8:1 NIV) Certainly wisdom does call us. Certainly, understanding raises her voice to get our attention. Solomon and the Holy Spirit are drawing a contrast for us. The harlot and the adulteress have been described in Proverbs 7 and other places as evil, alluring, secretive, seductresses calling from the darkness. They personify folly, the opposite of wisdom. They tempt us to abandon wisdom and give in to foolish destructive short-term pleasures.

Proverbs 8 introduces wisdom as a righteous and virtuous woman calling openly in the light of day, at the gates to the city and the doors to houses, not in darkness and secret. Wisdom's intent is to bless us not seduce us. Wisdom's motive is to reward us with long lasting peace and joy not with fleeting pleasures of sinful self-indulgence. Her goal is to lead us to righteousness, happiness, joy and health not to misery, tragedy, destruction and death.

In Proverbs 8, wisdom claims: that she was appointed from eternity before the world began; that she was a master craftsman beside God in the creation; that her instruction to mankind and her knowledge is more valuable than silver, gold, or rubies; by her governmental authorities rule; that those who seek her will find her; that she loves those who love her; those who walk with her will find righteousness and justice; those who love her will reap financial blessing; that life is found in her, and those who hate her, love death.

One of the great proofs that the Bible is the Word of God is that its predictions come true. Some would argue that there is no such thing as truth. I think I have experienced a lot of truth. It can be verified in experience. I have found that the precepts from the Bible when applied to individual lives always come true. Following the moral codes taught in the Bible produces the very results promised. That is great evidence for me that the Bible is indeed true and authoritative. We are foolish indeed if we ignore the wisdom of the Bible. The Bible gives instructions for every area of life. Each instruction includes both promise and warning. If we engage in a specific behavior, a specific result is promised. We are guilty of the terrible folly of investing far too little time in seeking God's wisdom. God recorded it for us in Scripture, but most of us who claim to be Christians have never read through the whole Bible even once. We ought to read it through multiple times, meditate on it, memorize it, and most importantly give it a chance to prove itself by applying it to our own individual lives. The wisdom of God promises peace, joy, blessing, and eternal life. Following the teachings of the Bible will improve the quality of every part of your life. Comfort is not part of the equation, but peace is. Give it a chance in your own life. Try it and see if it's true.
