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.
