I am hearing so many great comments about Tuesday night's book study. There were several new ladies - welcome!!!! I heard the discussion was very moving. (I couldn't be there due to school conferences! - and I was very sad!)

Thank you, Rebekah, for being such a great leader. .. and thank you, ladies, for all your support and participation. You make the group what it is!!

It's not too late to get involved. The book is Crazy Love. It's available at Wal-Mart,, or Lifway Bookstore (Jonesboro or Jackson). We'd love to have everyone join in. The next meeting time is a week from Tuesday.

We sure got a plateful yesterday. Both messages were so powerful. Between faith and "goodness and mercy" - we can't go wrong. If you missed it, you need to get the cd's. You know I don't usually say that - so it must be really good.

I also want to thank all of you for your love and support. It's no secret that these are not easy days for Pastor and I. I, being the emotional person I am, display my feelings right out there. That's okay, though. I won't be ashamed. We all need one another and I am so thankful that I have all of you. I love you and your families. You are my family and friends and I cherish you much. This is not the end - just a stepping stone!

I love you, girls!

Sister June

P.S. Don't forget about the study group tomorrow night - Crazy Love. It's powerful!!! 6:00 @ Patty Ann's!

The 23rd Psalm Like You've Never Read It

"The 23rd Psalm Like You've Never Read"

This is an eye opener; some probably never thought nor looked at Psalm 23 in this way, even though they say it over and over again.

The Lord is my Shepherd - That's Relationship!

I shall not want - That's Supply!

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures - That's Rest!

He leadeth me beside the still waters - That's Refreshment!

He restoreth my soul That's Healing! He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness - That's Guidance!

For His name sake That's Purpose! Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death - That's Testing!

I will fear no evil That's Protection! For Thou art with me - That's Faithfulness!
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me - That's Discipline!
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies - That's Hope!

Thou annointest my head with oil - That's Consecration!

My cup runneth over - That's Abundance!

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life - That's Blessing!

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord - That's Security!

Forever - That's Eternity!

As you've noticed, I'm sure, I've not posted Feature Friday in awhile now. Reason being - I haven't been able to get info from most of you!!! So, I will post these as people give me the information.

Our featured sister this week is a very energetic young woman. Whenever you see her, she will be bouncy and smiling! Yep, I'm talking about Rebekah Counts! Rebekah was born February 4. She has ventured from home a few times, but grew up and makes her home in Caruthersville. She is an elementary teacher (of which I am jealous because she has a higher grade and teaches my favorite subject all day long!!)

Rebekah shares her life with her family - her husband Matt, mother and father - Howard and Rose, and 3 sisters - Christina, Sarah, and Naomi.

Her relationship with the Lord began at a very early age - 6 - when she received Christ at the A/G in Caruthersville.

Her favorite Scripture is Exodus 14:14 - The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still." She gives us a wonderful "sermonette" with this Scripture. "Sometimes the trials of life are beyond our control, and when they are, God will fight for us...and when they seem as though we can beat them, God still desires for us to call on Him for guidance. We'll save ourselves a lot of strife when we recognize our Defender, our Strong Tower." What truth!!

Rebekah began her driving experience at a very young age - she started at age 4. Her parents had a full-size van. She backed it down a steep hill one Sunday morning before church. In her words - "I'm sure my parents were very happy!" : )

We are so glad to count Rebekah as one of our Sisterz. We love you, Rebekah!

What a wonderful evening I spent with my Sisterz. We began the new book study, "Crazy Love." Rebekah Counts is leading this study/discussion and did such a WONDERFUL job!! Of course, we really enjoy the time as we top it off with one of Randall's wonderful pies! The Word, my Sisterz, and pie - life couldn't be better! We just did the introduction, so there is plenty of time for you to jump in with us and not miss a thing. There's room for more - so come on out every other Tuesday at 6:00. Our next study will be in 2 weeks - October 20.

Thanks, Rebekah, for a good introduction and discussion!

Be humble under God’s powerful hand so he will lift you up when the right time comes. Give all your worries to Him, because He cares about you. 1 Peter 5:6-7

Perhaps you are uncertain about your future – or perhaps you are simply a “worrier” by nature. If so, it’s time to focus less on your troubles and more on God’s promises. And that’s as it should be because God is trustworthy … and you are protected.

If you are a person with lots of obligations and plenty of responsibilities, it is simply a fact of life: You worry. From time to time, you worry about health, about finances, about safety, about family, and about countless other concerns, some great and some small.

Where is the best place to take your worries? Take them to God. Take your troubles to Him; take your fears to Him; take your doubts to Him; take your weaknesses to Him; take your sorrows to Him … and leave them all there. Seek protection from the One who offers you eternal salvation; build your spiritual house upon the Rock that cannot be moved.

Don’t take tomorrow to bed with you. Norman Vincent Peale
