~IMHO~ "Clear the Shelters" on July 23rd ~ My heart sinks when I see the phase "Animal shelter to have one-day free adoptions for dogs and cats." What do you think about when you see FREE? I think things that have no or little value. We tell people if they are rehoming their pets, don't make them free. That it encourages people who cannot really afford a pet to get one. If free is the attraction, does it mean they won't have money to spay or neuter or do heartworm or even flea/tick prevention?

Who's been telling you those lies?
Who told you it's okay to live in anxiety and fear? The Prince of Peace is on the throne, He does not give like the world gives, He gives peace. Living in fear and anxiety is not of His kingdom so where did it come from? Who would seek our hearts to be in constant torment of worry and fear of what will happen tomorrow in our world? I think I know who told us this lie...it was the serpent.
Peachtree folks gathered at the church on a bright, sunshiny morning, after several nights of stormy weather. Everyone was surprised and happy to welcome Pastor Whitehouse back following his recent knee surgery. [He will resume his place in the pulpit next Sunday.] Lawrence Edwards filled the pulpit and brought the morning message. His sermon was titled"Facing Personal Giants". It was based on several scriptural passages found in I Samuel 17. It recounts the well loved story of David, as a shepherd boy, who faced and slew the dreaded giant, Goliath.
Let me seeeee.... what's happening up here in the Aventon Community. Not much!
Our Swift Creek Bridge is being worked on causing a major detour. Traffic in front of my house is nothing like it normally is LOL! I love it! I don't know how long the bridge will be closed, but D.O.T, please take your time in repairing it. I would love to tell everyone a short cut to Hwy 43 would be going down Hilliardston Rd to Cooper Rd instead of going by Alston's Garage, but I hate to send the traffic over thatta way. HeHeHe!
