God Carries out His Plan: Divine Providence  

                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Creation has its own goodness and proper perfection, but it did not spring forth complete. (Remember Genesis tells us it was performed in 6 days, or stages, and God rested on the 7th day) The universe was created "in a state of journey" toward an ultimate perfection yet to be attained, to which God has destined it.

God Can Use Second Hand Stuff

 

 

By Clifton Fox, Church of Christ

 

     A lad with a new driver’s license asked his Dad for a car. His dad told him, “Not until you raise your grades to B’s, and read your Bible daily, and cut your long hair.” A few months later he asked his dad again: “Son, I’m proud of you. Your grades are B’s, and you read your Bible as I asked. However, you never cut your hair.”  The lad answered: In my Bible studies I noticed Sampson, Moses, and Jesus may have had long hair.” His dad responded: “Son, did you also notice those guys walked where ever they went?”

Tom Topics

By Tom Hawkins

This writer was somewhat saddened this past Saturday to learn of the final destruction of Baylor Stadium or Floyd Casey Stadium as it was known in more recent years.

Baylor Stadium was opened in 1950  and was the home of Baylor Bear football for many years. The stadium was closed when McLean Stadium opened. The final Baylor football game was played in the storied old stadium in December of 2013.

As a young school boy, yours truly, remembers attending numerous BU football games. In those day a youngster or teenager could be seated in the end zone for 50 cents. Those 50 cent tickets were called “knot-hole” tickets.

My brother, Jack W. Hawkins, recalls that the Groesbeck Boys Scouts were often invited to assist  with the parking or other such duties at Baylor Stadium for free tickets.

Groesbeck Study Club holds meeting

 

The Groesbeck Study Club had its regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 at 7pm at the Groesbeck Maffett Memorial Library in their conference room.  The devotional was given by Mary Belle Leach which she got from her adult coloring devotional book.  She read from Psalm 51:12.  “Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.”  She told us about George McDonald who is a restorer of old books.  He bought old volumes of books and restored them.  He was so good, that he was asked to move in and fix all the books in a library because of his love and care for the books.  She told us that God takes our lives and restores us with His love and power combined.
