Greetings, Here we go again!
More sleet, rain and snow, schools closing, highways salted over, wow! When is it going to be spring?
I was able to get out to church at North Star before it turned bad, even made it into Kroger. We had a very nice service; Rev. Steven Miller Sr. brought it as he always does! Psalms 99:1-4, “Five ways that the devil binds your worship.” He discussed everything from perception, to prideful assuming and yes, the sin that’s found in church.
March 22, from 4-8 p.m. at 804 Bert Johnson Street in Covington, it’s JCHO’s annual “It takes ten” event at the Teen Learning Center. Admissions are $10 at the door as well as in advance. The theme is “Southern Style.” It features southern cooking on the menu. The public’s invited. President Rev. Pearl Andrews and program coordinators Gwen Cook and Pam Cobbs Springfield will look for you.
Congratulations to my niece on her upcoming marriage, July 19, in Nashville. Sabrina Bell, daughter of Walter Bell, Jr. of Memphis and Joann Bell, is becoming the wife of Mr. Raymond Reynolds, formerly of St. Louis.

Darryl Rozzell and family, Charlene Sneed, Willie Reed Jr., Gertie and Charles Coleman, Mary Ballard and family, Flossie Woods, Julian Gray and family and Katerine Richardson.
Prayers for Rev. Maurice Dickerson and family (the Jamestown Stewart family) on the recent passing of his wife, Vivian Stewart Dickerson, now of Memphis, and the Mt. Nebo Baptist Church Services for Mrs. Dickerson will be this Saturday, March 8, at 11 a.m. Vivian was the oldest daughter of the late Alex and Imogene Steward of Jamestown.

Remember, “A good friend is like a good piece of clothing, a good fit.”
Until next time.
