TO OUR MOMS:
“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold;
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.
“Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades.
The woman to be admired and praised
is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.
Give her everything she deserves!
Festoon her life with praises!”
As we honor our mothers this weekend let us remember that what they need the most is our time. Call them, visit them. Sixty minutes of your time will mean more to them than an expensive present in a fancy box. Our mothers is a gift of heaven. Treasure this gift.
I’ll put my “Life Renovations” sermon series on hold and will preach tomorrow morning from 1 Samuel 1:15-18. Please, find time to read the whole chapter.
OAKS. After Rosa Lee announced her plans to retire the school board and the school personnel committee started the processes of a new principle search. Principle position opening was posted on the North American Division website. OAKS staff, teachers and Board members prayerfully interviewed several candidates. The process is not yet completed, but we may know the new principle’s name early next week. We all want God’s will to be done in this important matter. We have a wonderful school and we all want it to prosper. I’ll send you a message as soon as the new principle’s position is officially filled.
Join us in honoring Ms. Rosa Lee Tubbs as we celebrate her retirement at potluck next week (May 16). On behalf of the church and school, we would like thank her for all the hard work and dedication that she has displayed during her leadership at OAKS. She will be greatly missed! May God bless her in the journeys to come.
OAKS 7 and 8 grades students spent a few days in DC. This was a great trip. They safely returned back
BAPTISM. Last Sabbath afternoon we had a wonderful baptism on the lake. Ryan and Alyssa Gibson, Eduard Smirnov, David and Connie King accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and expressed their desire to be baptized like Jesus. After our Bible prophecy seminar several more individuals asked for Bible studies and for a baptism. Jesus is coming back soon and they want to be ready to meet Him. Praise God for their decisions.
