As part of the Hamilton County


Health Fair, third grade students sub-
mitted art on the three P's. Ros, who is
an advocate for children's health care,

Counselor's Corner


By Paula G. Williams
HCHS Middle Grades
Guidance Counselor
Charlie Ray Jackson, a
1975 graduate of Hamil-
ton County High School,
was the guest speaker
for our December moti-
vational assembly. Mr.
Jackson was an all-
around student at
Hamilton High and he
was a .big part of the
ROTC Program. This
participation lead to his
Pershing Rifle career at
Florida A&M Universi-
ty, a degree from the
University, and a pro-
ductive career in the
army, where he retired
as a major.
Mr. Jackson, who was
introduced by his
nephew, Jonathan
Banks, is in his second
career as Alachua Coun-
ty Facilities Manager. He
was recently elected to
serve a one-year term on
the Construction Own-
ers Association of Amer-
ica Board of Directors.
It is so good to have
our "home boys" return
and share with our stu-
dents. They represent
what hard work and a
willing mind can do for
young people who as-
pire to be more and do
more. Mr. Jackson is the
son of Henrietta Jackson
and the late Wilmer
Jackson of White
Springs.
Mr. Jackson shared
alarming statistics when
comparing funds for
schools, parks, and pris-
ons. The students partic-
ipated in calculating the
figures. He shared with
them their responsibility


in turning these facts
around because one day
Hamilton County and
our world will be in the
hands of the students we
presently serve. He
shared challenges that
middle school students
faced 20 years ago and
those they face today.
His talk in this area
caused me to think on
one of Dr. King's quotes
in the early 1960s. "Our
scientific power has out-
run our spiritual power.
We have guided missiles
and misguided men."
The students were en-
couraged to take what
they have heard and
store it in their memory
banks, allowing it to
make a difference in
their lives. A special
thanks to Mr. Jackson
for traveling to Jasper to
share with our young
people.
If you missed the
Christmas musical, you
missed a treat. The
young actors, chorus
and band students did a
great job. Mrs. Jones and
Mr. Steltenpohl are com-
mended for a job well
done. Thanks, parents,
for your tremendous
support.
Our mock eighth
grade FCAT Writing test
went well and we will
anxiously wait for the
scores that will be avail-
able on-line. Parents will
be able to view the re-
sults on the computer
and there will be feed-
back regarding the
scores along with a mod-
el of an exemplary writ-
ing product. Students
who score 4.5 or higher


will receive a $5 Wal-
Mart gift card.
The honor roll stu-
dents enjoyed a day at
the movie in the audito-
rium and bags stuffed
with goodies. The AAA
(Achievement, Academ-
ic, Attendance) students
participated in gift
drawings last week.
There were 50 nice gifts
for students to enjoy and
help them celebrate be-
ing good citizens and re-
alizing the importance
of good attendance.
Congratulations to all of
you and your parents.
Parents should have
received a copy of The
Counselor Chronicle
and we hope you will
help celebrate the great
job middle school stu-
dents did at the Science
Fair. Also be sure to read
about the FCAT tutoring
that is scheduled to be-
gin on Jan. 9. Call me for
more details if you have
not done so already.
It has been a great first
semester at HCHS.
Thank you for your sup-
port and help us return
on a positive note, ready
to work hard as we pre-
pare for our testing sea-
son.
Christmas vacation for
students runs from Dec.
24 through Jan. 7. Stu-
dents return on Jan. 8.
Come by room #127 at
Hamilton County High
School if I can be of as-
sistance to you- or don't
hesitate to call me at
792-6540 or email me at

By Louis Sullivan
Social Security District

Do you have Medicare

ing Medicare and have:
income limited to $15,315

come is higher, you still
may be able to receive
some help with monthly
premiums, annual de-
ductibles and prescrip-
tion co-payments. Some
examples where income
may be higher include if
you or your spouse: sup-
port other family mem-

Hawaii, and resources
are limited to $11,710 for
an individual or $23,410

Facts about blood donations


LifeSouth is a nonprofit
community blood center.
Its mission is to provide
the highest quality blood
components and services
at the lowest optimum
cost to the patients and
hospitals they serve.
The Blood Donor Bene-
fit Program at LifeSouth
covers all non-insured
blood processing fees (re-
gardless of hospital or
blood provider) nation-
wide. Regular blood
donors also may cover
family members and
friends through the Blood
Donor Benefit Program.
Less than 10% of eligible
donors give blood each
year in the United States.
A blood donation is gen-
erally split into three com-
ponents platelets, plas-
ma, and red cells which
can save three different
lives.
LifeSouth recommends
that donors give blood
every eight weeks. If all el-
igible donors made that
commitment, there would
-no longer be blood short-
ages.
Blood must be available
to a patient the instant it is
needed. This is why it is
important for people to

I enjoy talking to Jon
who has a doctorate de-
gree in physics, a brilliant
research scientist. Yet he
can easily talk over my
head.
We discussed a movie
about Moses and the Jew-
ish people I had recently
viewed.
Jon had recently seen a
movie on the same subject.
The very way he said, "ed-
ucational television," in-
formed me that his movie
version was superior. He
didn't dispute the Bible
and the fact of the occur-
rence. He just needed to
inform me of some fresh
scientific facts.
I was about to be educat-
ed; I was in deep water.
He came to the crux of


24, 2007, at Trinity Com-
munity Hospital following
an extended illness. The
Georgia native was a
homemaker and longtime
resident of Hamilton
County and was of the
Primitive Baptist faith.
Mrs. Norris was preceded
in death by her husband,
A. L. "Shorty" Norris.
Survivors include two
sons: Thurston Norris and
Larry Norris, both of
Jasper; one brother, Hilton
Westberry, and one sister,
Lue Jean Thornton, both of
Jasper; and two grandchil-
dren: Nora Leigh Norris
Rogers and Aaron Norris.
Funeral services were
held Thursday, December

Dr. Sumner Wendell
Hill, age 74, of Jasper, Flori-

day, December 26, 2007, at
his home following a brief
illness. Brother Hill was
born in Hamilton County,
Florida, to the late Benny
and Harriett Ernestine
Spears Hill. He was a vet-
eran of the United States
Navy.
Brother Hill received the
call into the ministry in
1957. His first pastorate
was at Enterprise Baptist

supposed misspelling in
the Biblical text. Moses
and the Jewish people ac-
tually passed through the
Reed Sea, not the Red Sea.
Oh. And the Reed Sea
was only ankle deep. A
wind blew the water hard
enough to make a dry path
allowing three million
Jews to easily scamper
away from the pursuing
Egyptian army. Not a faith
event but a windy day.
The Bible says: But when
the Egyptians tried to pass
through the Red Sea they
were drowned. "How did
the Egyptian army drown
in ankle deep water?"
Jon grinned, scrunched
his eyes, was silent for a
moment. "I didn't think of

White Springs







By Johnny Bullard


A happy 2008 to all my
readers. I hope each of
you will have a happy,
healthy, safe, and pros-
perous New Year and in
the words of the late Ten-
nessee Ernie Ford that
"the Lord will bless you
real good."
Rev. Wendell Hill, well
known and beloved "man
of God" departed this life
the day after Christmas.


He was the pastor of Cal-
vary Baptist Church for
more than 25 years, but,
truthfully, he belonged to
all of us in Hamilton and
surrounding counties.
"Brother Hill," as he
was known affectionately
by scores of individuals
was an individual who
preached his funeral ser-
vice while he was here.
He was concerned, of a


NOTICE OF

LAND USE CHANGE
The Town Council of the Town of White Springs, Florida
proposes to change the use of land within the area shown
on the map below, by amending the text of the Town of
White Springs Comprehensive Plan, hereinafter referred

will be held on January 15, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. in the Town
Hall Conference Room, Town Hall, located at 10363
Bridge Street, White Springs, Florida. The title of said
ordinance reads, as follows:
ORDINANCE NO. 08-01

AN ORDINANCE OF THE TOWN OF WHITE
SPRINGS, FLORIDA; AMENDING THE TEXT OF'
THE TOWN OF WHITE SPRINGS
COMPREHENSIVE PLAN, AS AMENDED,
PURSUANT TO AN APPLICATION, CPA 07-1, BY
THE TOWN COUNCIL,, UNDER THE
AMENDMENT PROCEDURES ESTABLISHED IN
SECTIONS 163.3161 THROUGH 163.3215,
FLORIDA STATUTES, AS AMENDED; PROVIDING

SCHOOL BOARD AND AMENDING THE CAPITAL
IMPROVEMENT ELEMENT OF THE

SCHOOL FACILITIES LEVEL OF SERVICE
STANDARDS AND AMENDING THE FIVE-YEAR
SCHEDULE OF CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS;

generous spirit, and was
a loving and kind man.
He will be missed by
his wife, Sister Gladys
Hill, his daughters and
other members of the
Hill family, and by
countless individuals in
our area, including me. I
loved him very much, as
he responded to me on
countless occasions.
When I think of him I
think of the words of the
old Baptist hymn "Every
work for Jesus will be
blessed, but He asks from
everyone his best. Our
talents may be few, these
may be small but unto
Him is due our best, our
all." Brother Hill did the
best he could in the vine-
yards of our Lord here
upon this earth. His last
sermon included words
so typical of him when he
said, "There is still so
much work to be done for
the Lord." Even in his dy-
ing hours, he was think-
ing of others and praying
for their salvation and
their spiritual well-being
and, that, my friends, is
the definition of a Christ-
ian self sacrificial, un-
conditional love that
comes from the heart of
Jesus through His ser-
vant.
The family, the church
family, and the many
friends have the prayers
of the White Springs com-
munity. Let our New
Year's resolution be to
more closely emulate this
servant of God and carry
on his legacy of love, tol-
erance, understanding
and self-sacrifice.

noon when members of

Trojans


Continued From Page 7A

Trojans' record to 7-1 and
1-1 in district play.
Hamilton then prepared
for their next game, which
was another district con-
test. This time .it was
against the Taylor County
Bulldogs in Perry.
The Bulldogs proved to
be a hard test in a well-
played game, which never
saw any team take more
than a 7-point-lead
throughout the contest.
Taylor shot 50% for the
game, which is outstand-
ing. The Trojans battled
however and had posses-
sion of the ball with 10 sec-
onds left in the game, trail-
ing 62-59.
Senior forward Anthony
Stevens passed to Jones,
who was smartly fouled
immediately. Jones made
the first free throw to make
the score 62-60 Bulldogs.
With no time outs left, the
only option was for Jones
to intentionally miss 'the
next free throw and try to
get the rebound. Jones exe-
cuted perfectly as the shot
missed and was tipped
back by Stevens. Webb was
able to grab" the ball but


was unable to get a good
shot off since he secured
the rebound with less than
a second left in the game. It
was a valiant effort by
Webb and the rest of the
Trojans but it wasn't
enough as Taylor defeated
Hamilton 62-20.
HCHS had 3 players
scoring in double figures
and was led by Stevens' 18
points. Cooks (17) and
Jones (10) also scored in
double figures.
McClain led the team
with 5 rebounds and Webb
led the team in assists again
with 7 dimes. Hamilton
had two players with 4
steals and 2 blocked shots
each Jones and Stevens.
It was a very tough loss
and it dropped Hamilton's
record to 7-2 overall and 1-
2 in the district.
On the very next day, the
Trojans played host to
Class 4-A rival Suwannee
County High. It was a big
game in Jasper with a lot of
fans in the stands.
In front of a packed
house, both teams seemed
to have the nervous jitters
as Hamilton missed their
first 9 shots and Suwannee
missed their first 8 shots.


McClain scored the first
points of the night on a tip-
in. On the next time of the
court, Suwannee scored on
a tip-in by Alex Fountain,
tying the game at 2 points
apiece half way through
the quarter.
At that point, HCHS
scored the next 10 points to
take a 12-2 lead at the end
of the opening frame. The
Trojans were led by Pollock
and senior guard Walker,
who provided a much-
needed spark off the bench.
After a free throw by the
Bulldogs, Hamilton scored
the next 6 points. The run
began with an exciting
baseline driving layup by
Pollock, which drew some
oohs and aahs from the
crowd. After senior for-
ward Mark Jolly stole the
ball and assisted to Pollock
for a reverse layup, it was a
16-3 lead. Walker made a
steal and layup and the
score was then 18-3 HCHS.
The Bulldogs scored 4
points in a row. After ex-
changing baskets, Hamil-
ton led 20-9 with 1:42 left in
the first half. Senior guard
Ryan Mathis drained a
three'pointer after an of-
fensive rebound. Suwan-


nee made 2 free throws and
then McClain had a tip-in
at the. buzzer, which was
fitting to have McClain
score the first and last
points of the half, both on
tip-ins. Hamilton led
Suwannee at the half, 25-
11.
Pollock began the second
half scoring the first 3
points for the Trojans.
Suwannee also scored and
Hamilton led 28-13. After
Cooks made a nifty pass to
McClain for a jumper,
Hamilton led by 17.
The Bulldogs made their
first real streak of the game,
scoring the next 7 points
and cutting the Trojan lead
to 10 points. This seemed to
really wake up the Trojans
as they scored the next 8
points in a row and ended
the quarter on a 14-3 scor-
ing run, giving them a 44-
23 lead entering the final
quarter. The run began
with McClain making two
free throws and ended
with Lanier passing to
Walker for a layup.
Hamilton would cruise
on to victory winning the
game by a final score of 68-
37.
The Trojans had 3 play-


ers scoring in double fig-
ures and were led by Pol-
lock's 14 points. Walker
and McClain each scored
10 points. Other scorers for
the Trojans included
Stubbs (9), Jolly (8), Webb
(6), Cooks (4), Lanier (4),
and Mathis (3).
Hamilton out-rebound-
ed the Bulldogs 57-48 on
the night and was led in
that category by Pollock,
who had 10 rebounds.
Every single Trojan player
had at least 1 rebound. Mc-
Clain had 8 boards. Stubbs
and Jolly each had 7 re-
bounds. Stevens and Cooks
each had 5 boards. Walker,
senior forward Josh Paul,
Webb, and Mathis each col-
lected 3 rebounds. Lanier
had 2 boards and senior
center Gareth Johnson had
1 rebound while suffering
an ankle injury.
The Trojans had 18 as-
sists for the game and was
led by Cooks' 4 dimes. Pol-
lock and Lanier each added
3 assists and Jolly added 2.
Six other Trojans had 1 as-
sist each: Walker, Paul, Mc-
Clain, Webb, Stubbs, and
Mathis.
Pollock also led the team
in steals with 4 on the


night. Walker had 3 steals
and Lanier and Jolly each
had 2 steals. Rounding out
the players who had at
least one steal were Cooks
(1), McClain (1), and Stubbs
(1).
McClain led the team in
blocks for the night with 3
and Jolly also had 2
blocked shots off the bench.
It was a total team effort
that left the packed house
happy and the Trojans
pleased to get another win
after two tough losses.
HCHS moved to 8-2 for
the season.
Hamilton did not get
much of a break over the
Christmas holidays as they
traveled to Ocala to take
part in the prestigious
Kingdom of the Sun tour-
nament at Ocala Vanguard
High School. The Trojans
played the first game of the
tournament on Wednes-
day, the day after Christ-
mas, against Class 5A pow-
erhouse Lakewood High
School out of'St. Peters-
burg. The competition was
extremely tough but
should help prepare the
Trojans for the rest of the
season.

area. A foim is available on-line that you or the named
individual can print out and complete.

The owner of the funds should complete the form and

Many residents who lose power may turn to
emergency generators to ensure a continuous flow
of electricity to refrigerators, freezers, lights, fans
and other appliances. SVEC urges residents to
exercise extreme caution. While generators are a
convenience in keeping appliances running during
storm-related outages, they can also create hazards
for homeowners and electric utility workers.

When operating a generator:
tor in accordance with your house to receive power directly from a portable
and instructions, generator as opposed to power normally supplied by
SVEC. Transfer switches isolate the circuits supplied by

Understanding Heart Failure


According to the American Heart Association (AHA),
nearly five million Americans are living with heart
failure, and more than half a million new cases are
reported each year.
While that's certainly a large number, it may also be
comforting to people with a family history of heart
disease or those recently diagnosed with heart failure to
know that they're not alone and that there's no reason
they cannot enjoy a full life. Of course, knowing about
heart failure and its symptoms and risk factors can only
help make the battle that much easier.

What Is Heart Failure?
Contrary to what its name might imply, heart failure
does not mean the heart has stopped working. Instead,
heart failure occurs when the heart stops pumping the
amount of blood necessary for the body to function
properly. As this happens, the body then tries to make
up for it in a handful of ways, such as the heart
beginning to beat faster and the heart actually
expanding. As the heart chamber expands, it stretches
more and contracts more strongly, enabling it to pump
more blood.
Another thing the body does is hold onto salt and
water, which increases the amount of blood in your
bloodstream. This leads to congestion, hence the
moniker "congestive heart failure" used by some in the
medical profession.

How Does Heart Failure Manifest Itself?
Because the body does things to makeupifor the heart
not pumping blood as well as it should; heart failure is
often difficult to recognize. Oftentimes, the
aforementioned steps the body takesare so effective
that it's common to not even know the heart is
suffering from a disease.
However, as the AHA notes, heart failure is typically
a chronic disease, meaning it's a long-term condition
that will continue to get worse. As hard as the body
works to make up for the heart not pumping blood at
full capacity, eventually the body will begin to lose
ground and certain symptoms will arise. Some of the
early symptoms include feeling tired easily, being short
of breath upon physical exertion, feelings of weakness
and dizziness, and heart palpitations, where the heart
feels as if it's racing or pounding.
Eventually, the fluid buildup that occurs becomes too
much for the body as well, and several symptoms can
manifest themselves as a result.
* Swelling in the lower half of the body, such as the
legs, ankles or feet
* Coughing or wheezing, particularly when lying
down


CAPTION: While genetics plays a big role, a healthy diet can help reduce the risk of heart failure.


* Increased need to urinate at night
* Shortness of breath, even when resting

What Causes Heart Failure?
Many health conditions arise as a result. of lifestyle
choices such as poor diet or negative behaviors such as
smoking or excessive drinking. Others are the result of
genetics, such as being born with a defect. Heart failure
can result from both personal behaviors and genetics.
Controllable factors that are associated with heart failure
include smoking, poor diet (particularly eating foods that
are high in cholesterol), lack of exercise, arid being
overweight. In other words, any of those conditions only
increase a peron's risk o heart failure. They ac nalOt;-
manifest themselves in several different ways.
* Coronary Artery Disease: this happens when
cholesterol and fatty deposits build up in the heart's
arteries, lessening the aunt of blood that reaches the
heart, forcing the heart to work harder as a result. A high-
cholesterol diet is a big risk factor for coronary artery
disease.
* Hypertension: also known as high blood pressure,
hypertension increases a person's risk of developing heart
failure by two to three times, according to the AHA.
Hypertension can occur from too much stress, be it work-
or family-related. A great way to relieve stress is through
regular physical exercise. People who do not exercise
regularly increase their risk of hypertension, and in doing
so, their risk of heart failure as well.
* Lung disease: when the lungs are not functioning
properly, it causes the heart to work that much more to
get oxygen to the rest of the body. Smoking increases the
risk of lung disease, which then increases the risk of heart
failure.

Heart Association Web site at www.americanheart.org.

YOUR LIFE IN 2008


By Pam Campbell


e are in a new year, 2008. What will
I you do with your life in this new year?
1 Will you race frantically trying to get
everything done, work too hard, stress
too much, or will you sit back and watch as others do it
all? Life seems to get so busy that most people don't have
the time for the things of God as they once did and some
just seem like they don't care. How about you? Do you
have big plans for the year 2008? Lot's of goals that you
feel you must accomplish? Some people make many new
year's resolutions and most of them are usually never
kept. Have you bothered to consult God concerning his
path for you in 2008? God's word, the Bible has all the
answers to all the questions anyone can ever ask. We all
would save ourselves so many problems if we would learn
to read God's word and talk to God to hear what he has to
say. God has a plan for everyone's life, he has a perfect
plan for your life! The Bible says in Psalm 119:105 "Thy
word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." If
we read our Bible we will see clearly what direction we
should go in every area everyday. God will light up the
way so that we will be able to walk in the test path for
our life.

God never expects us to walk alone, he always walks
right with us. Jesus goes before us and enters on our be-
half. Hebrews 6:19-20 "We have this hope as an anchor
for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary
behind the curtain, where Jesus, who went before us, has
entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forev-
er, in the order of Melchizedek." God has given us his
hope as our anchor, it is firm and secure and Jesus has al-
ready gone before us, has entered on our behalf, he is al-
ready helping you, he will never fail you. It is so good to
know that we have a firm and secure anchor in Jesus. I
know this past fall my family and I saw first hand how
God takes impossible situations and turns them around for
our good in ways that all of our thinking, researching and
planning could have never thought of and could never
have done. We know that God does indeed do miracles
and not just the healing kind, he cares about his children,
every detail of our lives. We can trust in our anchor, Jesus
he will never fail us.

I realize that there are people that don't even thii
about the new year, some that don't care what they do or
what happens. That is just as sad, because if you don't
care then you will miss out on so many blessings that God
has for you in 2008.

When you think about this new year, 2008 what do you
see as your main priority, the most important things that
you want to do, where do you see yourself at the end of
this new year? Have you thought about what you can do
for God this year, who's life you can touch, who you can
help, what you can do that will make a difference in some-
one's life? All of us that are alive, no matter what kind of
education we may have, what type of job or career we
work in, what our health may be like, how much money
we have or don't have, where we live, whatever our cir-
cumstances in our life may be we can still make a differ-
ence in someone's life. We can still pray, we can still min-
ister for God in some way. We need to start looking for
places that we can help, people that need help, there are
always needs, always lonely people, or sick people, chil-
dren that need help, neighbors, family, friends, and the
people that you see in the stores or the mailman or lady,
someone that works at your bank, a cashier or waitress, a
teacher, a doctor, we all come in contact with someone,
sometime, somewhere. We can share the light of the
Gospel with them, we can see if any of them have a need
that we can help with, we can certainly remember to pray
for them. Maybe God wants you to work for him in your
church, or in a different church, or maybe he needs you to
volunteer helping children or the elderly. It could be that
he wants you to write for him, or send letters and cards to
shut ins. I don't know what God has in mind for each of
you, but he does. Learn to ask God what he would have
you to do each and every day of your life. Don't just as-
sume that because you have always done things a certain
way all your life or for the last 10 years or whatever the
case may be, that he wants you to continue, maybe he
does, but maybe he has greater plans for your life in 2008.
Don't miss out on ALL of his wonderful plans for your

life. Maybe you get scared thinking about another year to
get through and what might or might not happen whether it
is good or bad. God promises that he will NEVER leave
us, learn to follow in his footsteps and give your worry and
fears over to God.

I am sure that you have heard and read Footprints more
than once, but I want to include it here, because I believe
that we need to be reminded in 2008 that our God will nev-
er forsake us. As you read it please think about how pow-
erful the words really are and what they meaq to your life.


Footprints in

the Sand


By Mary Stevenson


One night I dreamed I was walk-
ing along the beach with the _
Lord.
Many scenes from my life
flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed
footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there
were two sets of foot-
prints,
other times there
were one set of foot-
prints.

This bothered
me because I no-
ticed
that during the
low periods of my
life,
when I was suf-
fering from
anguish, sorrow
or defeat,
I could see only
one set of foot-
prints.

So I said to the
Lord,
"You promised me
Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with
me always.
But I have noticed that
during the most trying periods
of my life
there have only been one set of
footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you
have not been there for me?"


The Lord replied,
"The times when you have seen only one set of foot-
prints in the sand,

is when I carried you."

You see Jesus is always with us, he is always on time
and he will never forget us, or forsake us. Hebrews 13:5b
says "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." No matter
where we are God will never leave us and he always wants
the best for us. In Deuteronomy 31:8 The LORD himself
goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave
you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discour-
aged."
Remember when you make your plans, when you get
ready to do something and maybe the timing doesn't turn
out, or if you are running late for something and can't find
your keys, that God may be keeping you from being in a
horrible, fatal accident. We should learn to trust God, re-
member he knows what is going to happen to us through-
out our entire life. He knows where we will be everyday of
the year and wants us to learn to trust him
more.

"In all thy ways acknowledge
him, and he shall direct thy
paths." Proverbs 3:6. Re-
member that when we
talk to God he will di-
rect our path, he will
help us know how
to live to be hap-
py, to be the per-
son that God
knows that we
can be. Psalms
40:4 says it
well,
"Blessed is
Sthe man that

Lord his
.trust." Yes,
awe newe will be

blessed...
when we
trust in the
Lord. Trust
him with
your life in
2008, it will
be a year
full of God's
blessings!

I want to
remind you that
time really goes
by quickly, and
we need to learn to
S make the important
Things the important
things in our life. I
would like to leave you
with the words that appear
on a magnet in the kitchen
"Only one life will soon be past
only what's done for Christ will last."
What will you do for him in 2008? I pray
that each of us will draw closer to the Lord and serve him
more. Have a blessed New Year!

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER


YOUR LIFE IN 2008


By Pam Campbell
Happy New Year Kids! I can hardly believe that since I wrote to you last time we have entered
into a brand new year, 2008!
What will you do with your life in this new year? Do you have lot's of big plans for the new
year? Many times people make new year's resolutions, you know they promise themselves that
they are going to do things better or different. Sometimes people set all kinds of goals for them-
selves and then they never remember to do them. How about you? Do you have anything that you
want to do better or change this year? Maybe do better in school, or get along better -with others,
maybe help your family more, take more time to talk to God and read the Bible. Or will you keep
racing around trying to be in too many things, doing too much and not have any time for God or
your family? Maybe you are one of the kids that would rather just watch others do it all and you
just want to watch TV or play video games, and not get involved. When the New Year arrived did
you think to ask God what he wants for you in 2008?
God's word, the Bible has all the answers to all the questions you will ever have. As kids you
have an exciting year ahead of you, with many new things to learn, places to go, things to do, and
if you trust in God he will keep you safe and help you to know what is really the best for you. God
knows what will make you the very happiest and be the very best for your life. The Bible says in
Psalm 119:105 "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." If you read your
Bible, God will show you his way so that you will be able to walk in the best path for your life.
Have you thought about what you can do for God this year, how you can help others, what
you can do that will make a difference in someone's life? Each of you, no matter how old you are,
what grade you are in school, where you live, what you look like, how much money you have,
how big or small you may be, where you go to school or church, no matter who you are, can still
make a difference in someone's life. You can pray for others. We need to start looking for places
that we can help, find people that need help, there are always needs, always lonely people, or sick
people, children that need help, neighbors, family, friends, your teachers, or Sunday School teach-
ers, your mailman or lady, a coach, a dance teacher, a club leader, kids at school, your doctor or
dentist, or all the other people that you and your family meet in your life. You can share the Jesus
with them, you can see if any of them have a need that you can help with, and you can pray for
them.
God has great things planned for YOU in 2008, don't miss it! Be sure to follow him, by talk-
ing to him everyday and hearing what he has to tell you in his word, the Bible. Don't ever be
afraid of what might happen or worry about how you will do something, learn to trust in God and
not to worry. God promises that he will NEVER leave us, learn to follow in his footsteps and give
yourworry and fears over to God.
Have you read the poem Footprints in the Sand? You have probably seen it on pictures,
posters, key chains, cups, all kinds of things, there might even be something in your house with
it on it! It is a really famous poem and it is about footprints on the beach and how God carries us,
be sure to read it, it is pretty cool!

Footprints in the Sand
By Mary Stevenson


One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with th
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow ,or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,
'"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods
of my life
there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there
for me?"
The Lord replied,
"The times when you have seen only one set of foot-
prints in the sand,
is when I carried you."
I knew you would like that! I mean God promis--
es that he will never leave you, and he really doesn't,
when we think that he has and that we are walking alone,
he is actually carrying you! You see Jesus is always with
you, he is always on time and he will never forget us, or
forsake us. Hebrews 13:5b says "I will never leave thee,
nor forsake thee." No matter where we are God will nev-
er leave us and he always wants the best for us.
There may be a time we don't get to do something
we really want to do, the reason might be because God
who sees our future, knows that if we are in a certain spot
at a certain time we might get hurt, or killed. God always
looks out for us. Here is a great verse from the Bible "In
all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy
paths." Proverbs 3:6. Remember that when we talk to
God and ask him to show us the right way he will direct
our path, he will help us to know how to live, how to be
happy, to be what God knows that we can be.
What really matters the most is for each of you to
know Jesus and to love others. What will you do for him
in 2008? Will you remember to live for Jesus in the new
year? I hope that your life in 2008 is really blessed by
God!


Hey Kids! Have fun trying to find
all of these words in this puzzle!
