The website to check out is limestoneCHC.com which William Reagan administers as well as The Limestone County Museum.  Linda passed out applications for those who are eligible for the distinction of being one of the First Families.  The date to remember is 1897 which means that your family has to be living here before that year.

Groesbeck visits Groesbeck

Journal Staff Report

When Penny and Arnold Gray stopped at the Groesbeck Dairy Queen to get a quick lunch last week, Penny Gray struck up a conversation with a woman sitting in a nearby booth.

The woman’s name was Ginny Groesbeck, and she told the Grays she was touring the perimeter of the United States, which was a dream she and her late husband had shared but not fulfilled.

Ginny Groesbeck was originally from Seattle but now lives in Lynwood, Wash. She stays each winter in Arizona, which is where she began her trip on March 12. She expects to take two and a half months to complete her journey.

Live a Life Worthy of the Resurrection         

Christ died for sinners, not for the righteous. Now that Christ has conquered death, says St. Gregory the Great, we should abandon our worldly lives and live for Christ.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

God’s mercy for us is more amazing because Christ died, not for the righteous or holy, but for the unrighteous and wicked. Though his divine nature was not capable of death, yet at his birth he took from us what he would offer for us.

Grow a Bigger Garden in a Smaller Space

By Melinda Myers

Whether in the ground or on a balcony or deck, there’s always room to grow your own garden-fresh produce and beautiful flowers.  Space saving gardening techniques and products can help you increase productivity in any available space.

Consider elevated gardens and planter carts that not only save space, but make gardens more accessible. Movable carts like the Demeter Mobile Planter Cart allow you to grow flowers and produce in narrow spaces, store garden accessories and move the garden into the sunlight or out of the way of guests as needed.

Shepherd Sayings Mar. 16, 2017

Kosse Baptist Church, Pastor Jack

Jesus prayed that His followers, in every place and for all times, would be in “complete unity”. Christ knew that unless there was “complete unity” among His followers the people of the world would not know that God loved them. (John 17: 23)    Paul writing to the churches at Rome, Philippi, Colossae and Ephesus called on them to “make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit.” (Eph. 4:3) Obviously, unity “stick-togetherness” in the church, was then and is now “job one” for every spiritual leader. An anonymous writer said, “Unity is job one; if we don't have it, we won't get any other job done.”
