We didn’t have church this last Sunday or Sunday night due to the weather. So we don’t have any messages to share with you all.
Last week we lost a dear sweet lady in our community, Goldie Miller. She went home to be with the Lord and join her family. Please remember her children, grandchildren, greats and great greats. She will be missed by all.
Sunday night my brother, Burl Miller, was called home to be with the Lord. I’m sure gonna miss his calls, and his visits. When he would call me on the phone he’d say, “this is your sweet baby brother.” I enjoyed sitting around the table visiting and talking about our loved ones who had gone on home with the Lord. Burl enjoyed life. He was a great trader, if anyone could make a dollar he could. I knew when he lost his zeal to buy and sell he had given up. We had a dinner and card game at my sisters last week and both my sisters, myself, and him and spouses were there along with nieces and our nephew. Burl loved to play cards and just visit and of course eat a little bit. However, the best thing I can say about him, is he loved the Lord. He had a desire to go home, and be with the Lord. No more dialysis, no more dr. appointments, no more worrying about what may happen tomorrow. He often told me, “Sis, I’m ready to go.” Every morning I could see him drive past my house, he had to go to McDonalds or Mona’s, and have breakfast. Always hoping there would be someone there to visit with. Then a stop at T&C and get Linda, his wife , a piece of chicken. I don’t know how he determined it, but occasionally, on to Casey’s and get her, “her special donut”. He’d tell me how she loved that chicken and those donuts and of course her cokes. These may sound like simple things, but they are things that will be missed. He loved his church families so much. Often speaking of them. A message he’d maybe heard or a song. He loved to hear good singing and could sing a pretty good song himself. Please remember Burl’s family, his wife, children, grandchildren and those little greats, in prayer. He will be so missed by all of us so very much.
It seems like this last year we have had so many to go home in our family. Its been a sad year, but it would be so much sadder if we had no hope of a better place for them to be right now. I know there is a God, and a Heaven to gain. We all have an appointed time, for the Lord to call his children home, and then it will be. We have no say in that time. We do, however, have a choice if we will be ready when that call comes to make heaven our home. We must be ready at anytime should our appointed time come. I’m thankful for those who left us with a hope of seeing them again, should we all stand firm for Christ and live for him till our appointed time.
This Sunday night, March 9 will be our singing at church. Bring a song, a testimony and come join us at 6 p.m.
Please remember all those who have lost loved ones in prayer.
