Thrilled to see

Riding through downtown Louisville the other day, I was thrilled to see log trucks hauling logs on State Highway and city streets. The logs looked to me like they had dollar signs all over them. I was hoping to see some merchants coming out of their stores to applaud and cheer as the trucks rolled by bringing much needed money into our town.

Folks, when you see a log truck, give him a little extra room, a wave and a smile. He is trying to make a living for his family and yours.  All our lives have been made better by wood products. Log trucks are the life blood of our town. Let’s show some appreciation.

Congratulations to Winston Plywood!  Keep the log trucks hauling logs and flat beds loaded with plywood rolling and we’ll all benefit.

Rambling with Mrs. Arlene April 22, 2017

Praise the Lord everyone.  How wonderful it is to go out my door into the sunshine and look up and see beautiful blue skies.  Nothing can ever compare with God’s creations.  When we traveled all over the country with my husband on his job, we saw some breathtaking things that God created.  , I will never understand how anyone can look a beautiful blue sky in the daytime, a sky full of stars at night, or watch the lightening as it streaks across the sky and say God doesn’t exist.  But we all have a right to believe like we want to.  But I know what I know and lived it long enough till I never want to be without it.  Let me tell you about it my friend.  It’s the Holy Ghost, which is the spirit of God.  He lives inside of me and sometimes when I begin to pray and I start feeling God rising up in me, I begin to pray and worship and get lost in his presence.  It’s like floating on a soft cloud and you’re caught in it and you’re safe and nothing can touch you.  I don’t even realize what I’m doing.  It’s wonderful.  I begin to speak in the heavenly language.  Then when I start coming back down to reality, I feel so good.  My church people tell me sometimes that they believe my wheelchair got the Holy Ghost because it looks like it sometimes is trying to leave the ground.  Friend our God is real and on the day of Pentecost he came down to Earth and he entered into the temples he created which is our body and put his spirit in his people in the upper room.  He sent them there to the upper room to wait for his promise, which is the Holy Ghost.  When his spirit entered the room as the people prayed, the Bible said it was as the sound of a rushing mighty wind.  As the people received his spirit, the rushing mighty wind filled all of the house where they were sitting and there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire and it sat upon each of them and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and spoke with other tongues as the spirit gave utterance.  Acts 2:1-4.

My friends please hear what God is saying to you through this article today.  Pentecost is not a religion.  It is a Bible experience.  It’s meant for me and you.  He’s calling each of us.  He doesn’t care if you’re Baptist, Methodist, or any other denomination.  Your body is his temple.  He created you.  He wants you to be filled with his spirit so that when he splits the Eastern skies and returns to claim his church you’ll have the power to come out of the grave or be lifted from the Earth and join him in the air.  What a day that will be.  Check your Bible if you think I’m telling you wrong.  I’m telling you the truth.  You don’t have to worry about speaking in tongues.  That comes automatic.  It’s just like flipping a light switch.  When the power hits it, the light comes on.  When you start praying, crying, and you repent and ask God to forgive your sins and lift your hands in praise then the rest is just like I said.  God takes over and the rest is automatic.  It’s marvelous.  It’s the best you’ll ever feel in this life.

I’ve got to go.  Just call me at 662-724-4691 or write me at 40 West Alice Street, Noxapater, MS 39346 if you want to talk more about it.  Better still come visit us at River of Life Church in Louisville at the corner of Red Street and McCully Ave.  Just go toward the old Wal Mart and turn left at Bulldog cleaners and the stop light, then go to the third street and turn left and the church is on the right.  Everyone is welcome.  God says whosoever will, let them come.  God bless you all.  I love you and I’m concerned about your soul.  Have a good week.
