    Extension Council to meet

  • The South Fork Area Homemakers met Jan. 19 at Magnolia Baptist Church with Mary Lou Owen presiding.

    The roll call was answered by the members responding to the question “What is the coldest day you remember?”

    There were a lot of interesting stories about the experiences members had to endure at different times during their lives because of cold or snowy weather.

    Also present were Virginia Allen, Delores Bale, Janice Bowen, Amanda Gatewood, Louise Graber, Norma Jean McDonald, Martha Owen, Clovis Johnson, Della Thomas, Phyllis Perkins and Exie Elliott.

  • When water freezes, it expands. When water freezes in a pipe and expands enough, the pipe bursts, water escapes and serious damage results. Pipes in attics, crawl spaces and outside walls are all vulnerable to freezing, especially if there are cracks or openings that allow cold outside air to flow across the pipes.

  • Twelve-year-old Tiffany is waiting for adoption through the Special Needs Adoption Program.

    She has very curly blond hair and is of small build, but tall for her age. Tiffany is on target in her classes and is passing all subjects. She has some behavioral struggles with authoritarian figures and coping with frustrations but she is working towards improving those behaviors.

    Tiffany has started to express an interest in having an adoptive family although she continues to struggle with the loss of her biological family. She desperately wants a family to love her.

    But God is a great sovereign God. When David surveyed the handiwork of God he was made to exclaim, “What is man that thou art mindful of him ….” (Psalm 8:3-4). Consider some ways in which we see the greatness of God in the Bible.

  • The new year is a good time for reflection and reaching out. But we can’t reach out until we close the door to the past. It is impossible to reach back and reach out at the same time. Paul said we must let go of one to go for the other.

  • Five Ursuline Sisters of Mount St. Joseph were elected Dec. 29-31 to a six-year term as the Ursuline Leadership Council. They will begin serving on July 18.
