Eastern Lights, August 3, 2012

By the time you read this July will be gone, and August will have appeared with more hot weather.  The big Mississippi River is at an all time low, and most of the country is needing rain very badly.

Mary Barton called me Tuesday to tell me her house burned to the ground Monday and she lost everything she had.  She has two dogs missing. A large pit bull that answers to “Zena,” and a large black dog that answers to “Annie.”  Both dogs are friendly and if you see them please call 601-266-3678.

The Young at Heart of Pleasant Ridge met Wednesday for their monthly meeting.  Jeff White brought the devotional, giving his testimony. Randy Dunnam and his daughter sang a couple of gospel songs.

The senior adults of Pleasant Hill met Thursday with the chaplain from Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union County, Bobby Cossey, who brought a devotion from the book of Philippians. 

Friday brought sad news to the communities of Keownville and Pleasant Ridge.  Jimmy “Pop” Cobb had a tragic accident with a four-wheeler and lost his life.  He was a faithful member of Mt. Olive United Methodist Church and was well loved and respected by all who knew him.
