of members
from the
Mayo chap-
ter of the
American Legion assembled
in Carlton Black's veterans
office in the Lafayette Coun-
ty Courthouse on Wednes-


day, March 26, to recognize
a local veteran for his ser-
vice to his country.
Christopher Joyner, a resi-
dent of Mayo, retired from
the military in 2005. The
American Legion awarded
him a $500 check and a two
year membership.
"It is with sincere thanks
that we present this grant
today to a fellow military
veteran who served our


country with honor and
pride," Black said.
The check is part of a half
million dollar grant from
the Coalition to Salute
America's Heroes that is
sent to American Legion
posts around the country to
recognize disabled veterans
for their service to their fel-
low Americans during a
time of war, whether they
served in Iraq, Afghanistan


or other foreign nations.
Joyner thanked Black and
the members of the Mayo
chapter of the American Le-
gion for allowing him to
join the organization. He re-
cently said he wants to do
his best to help the organi-
zation grow and spread the
word to other veterans
about the American Legion.

PAGE 2A THE MAYO FREE PRESS, Mayo, FL THURSDAY, APRIL 3, 2008


All around are the sights and
sounds of spring, flowers are bloom-
ing, grass is turning green, the birds
are singing, it's time to pack away
winter, open the windows and do a
little "spring cleaning!" This is also a
great idea when it comes to guarding
our hearts and protecting the relation-
ships in our lives. We can all accumu-
late some clutter that flat needs to go!
Over the next several weeks, Heart
Matters will be taking a close look at
some real "enemies" of our hearts
and relationships that are best identi-
fied and cleaned out on a regular ba-
sis.
In Exodus 20:17, the Bible points
out the first of these dangerous oppo-
nents:
"You shall not covet your neigh-
bor's house. You shall not covet your
neighbor's wife, or his manservant or
maidservant, his ox or donkey, or
anything that belongs to your neigh-
bor."
To covet goes beyond simply ad-
miring what someone else has to the
point of resenting the fact they have
what you don't. We call this envy.
Webster's defines envy as "jealous; re-
sentment that is aroused by another's
advantage or possessions. According
to this definition, there are two arenas
for envy to rear its head: possessions
and/or the advantage or position of
others.
A modem translation of this verse
might sound like this: Don't be jeal-
ous because someone has a bigger or
nicer house than you; don't wish you
had your neighbor's wife or kids, his
job, income, or any of his possessions
that can definitely be easier said than
done. I don't remember ever wishing
for someone's ox or donkey, but their
new car, well that's another story!
The second part of our definition
reminds us that we can also become
envious of any advantage that we be-
lieve others may have over us. This
results in a 'power struggle" that
shows up in our marriages, and we
will become controlling or disconnect-
ed; in our families where sibling rival-
ry can become a real problem; in our
jobs where resentment can grow into
deep bitterness against.a co-worker or
boss; and in our friendships, which
can end up destroyed.
One of the most dangerous things
about envy is that we usually won't


admit it, it has very
close ties with pride.
According to Eph-
esians 5:19-24, envy is
included in the list of
acts of our sinful na-
ture, and it gains
strength when we are Angie Land
insecure or unsatis-
fied with what we have or who we
are. Being secure and satisfied comes
from believing that we are who God
says we are (loved and valuable) and
accepting the plan that He has for our
life. Take time today for a little
spring "heart" cleaning, identify (con-
fess it) and throw out (repent) any
form of jealousy. It has the potential
for severe damage to your relation-
ships and having peace within your-
self. This is worth our time because
our hearts really do matter!

Blessings, Angie

David H. Matier,
Doctor of Pastoral Counseling
In the Old Testament a principle is
set forth that there must be "2 or 3
witnesses" (Numbers 35:30;
Deuteronomy 17:6). Jesus perpetuated this law in the
early church in the matter of church discipline when
He said, after talking over a problem privately with an
individual, "But if he will not hear thee, then take with
thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three
witnesses every word may be established," (Matthew
18:16).
The Apostle Paul said that one should not receive an
accusation against a pastor unless there are at least two
or three witnesses to his wrong doing (I Timothy 5:19).
So throughout the Bible there is a principle set forth:
Let every word be established in the mouth of two or
three witnesses.
In Paul's words in I Corinthians he leaves us an
overview of the sighting of Christ after His resurrec-
tion; sightings recorded in the Four Gospels (notice 4
Gospels at least 2 or 3 witnesses). Paul wrote, ...I de-
livered unto you first of all that which I also received,
how that Christ died for our sins according to the
scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose
again the third day according to the scriptures: And
that he was seen of Cephas (Peter), then of the twelve:
After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren

at once; of when the greater part remain unto the pre-
sent, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen
of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was
seen of me also, as of one born out of due time." (I
Corinthians 15:3-8).
I believe that there was a Holocaust even though
there are those who would deny it ever happened be-
cause of their hatred for the Jewish people. I know that
there was a time when cruel slavery prevailed in many
parts of the United States, while some who have a ha-
tred toward blacks would like to deny that it every
happened, because it has been "established in the
mouth of two or more witnesses.
And I do believe in the resurrection of the Lord Jesus
Christ even though there are those, because of their de-
nial of the existence of God; denial of a moral law/Ten
Commandments and their hatred for Christianity and
Christians would deny the resurrection of Christ. But
it has been established by principle. "Let every word
be established by two or three witnesses. On one oc-
casion more than 500 men saw Christ alive at one time!
Paul knew many of them personally some of them
were still alive at the writing of the above account.
And Paul saw the Lord himself f He knew He was
alive!
HE IS ALIVE!

Receiver inks letter-of-intent


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent

Former Lafayette Hornet
wide receiver Matt Milton will
continue his education and
football career at Jacksonville
University next fall after sign-
ing a letter-of-intent with the
Jacksonville school last week.
Milton, who returned for his
senior season after breaking his
knee his junior season, said he
was excited about going to Jack-
sonville. "I am very, very excit-
ed about going there," he said.
"They offered me a really good
scholarship package. They have
great football facilities and I just
love it there."
Lafayette football coach, Joey
Pearson said Milton was a
"tenacious player who really


works hard on the football
field." "That is just Matt's thing.
He is going to go out and out
work anyone he plays against
or with," said the Hornet coach.
"Matt is a coaches dream. He
learns things quickly and hope-
fully he will get the opportunity
to earn his spot."
Milton will be competing for
a receivers spot but will play his
first year on the junior varsity
squad. "Coach (Kerwin) Bell
wants me to play and not sit on
the bench next season," said
Milton. "I am looking forward
to playing there next year."
Milton said Jacksonville Uni-
versity appealed to him as his
likely choice because of it prox-
imity to Mayo. "I wanted to at-
tend a school close to home,"
said Milton. "It is only two


hours away. It is a four-year col-
lege. Coach Bell and Cameron
Smith nothing but good things
to say about it."
Milton plans to major in
sports management while at
Jacksonville. "Anything to do
with sports. I love it," he said.
Milton admits there are going to
be some big changes for him as
he moves up to the next level.
"My family has always been
there for me. I think that will be
the biggest change, leaving my
family," he said. "I've always
wanted my family around me."
Coach Pearson said "getting
use to the college life" will pre-
sent a challenge as well. "But
his work ethic will be a tremen-
dous help to him," said Pear-

Ten-run third puts JV Hornets on their way

Perry on the mound sets the tone


by Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent


Lafayette collected seven hits
in the third inning alone and
scored 10 runs on its way to a
16-3 win over host Branford last
week in junior varsity baseball.
The Hornets (4-5) scored
three times in the second inning
to tie the game at 3-3 before ex-
ploding in the third frame.
Lafayette continued it scoring
with a single run in the fourth
and two in the fifth of the five
inning game.
Ethan Perry had two hits in
the game, both in the third in-
ning, the big blow being a two-
run double. Chris Spradling
collected two hits for the Hor-


nets as did Brooks Laminack.
Spradling drove in two runs in
the contest.
The Hornets had to come
from behind after Branford bat-
ted in the bottom of the first in-
ning where they scored three
times against Perry in taking a
3-0 lead. The first four batters
reached against the Hornet
right-hander in the bottom of
the first. Philmer walked and
Lamb followed with a run-scor-
ing double. He came home on
Stillwell's RBI single and
Arnold walked before Perry got
the next three batters in succes-
sion.
Perry was almost untouch-
able over the final four innings
retiring the last 12 batters he


faced in the game. Branford
would not put another runner
on base as Perry worked a per-
fect second, third, fourth and
fifth innings. Perry fanned four
batters while issuing three
walks. He allowed Branford
but two hits, all in the first in-
ning.
In the Hornets fourth, Perry
picked up his third RBI of the
game with a single up the mid-
dle scoring Austin Henderson,
who reached on a base hit
ahead of Perry.
A catcher's throwing error for
Branford allowed Lafayette to
put their last two runs on the
scoreboard in the fifth. Both
runs scored without the benefit
of a Hornet base hit.

Behind the hitting of Blake Sapp and Brynne
Witherspoon, Madison handed the homestanding
Lafayette Hornets a 11-8 setback in high school
baseball last Friday night. Madison did most of
their scoring in the last three innings in putting the
game in the win column. Evan Schnitker picked
up the win in relief for Madison hurling the final
four innings. Jordan Carroll started for Madison
but .ran into sonoe ourth lining trouble giving up:
four runs to Lafayette that gave the Hornets a 4-1
lead at that time.
Ragan Knight suffered the setback for Lafayette
and worked four strong innings until things be-
came unglued in the Madison fifth where they
scored four times to tie the game at 4-4. Madison
put three runs on the board in the fifth inning in
taking a 8-4 lead. They plated three in the seventh
to lead 11-5. Knight allowed but one run to Madi-
son through the first four with his team in front 4-
1.
A three-run fifth opened the door for Madison to
tie the game at 4-4. Two of the runs were unearned.
Jacob McDaniel got the inning underway with a
routine bouncer to second base that was booted by
Chad Hempstead. Back-to-back walks loaded the
bases. Knight got Tae Singletary on strikes but
gave up a two-run single to Sean Oliver. A super
backhand pickup by Ethan Perry at third base got
the Hornets out of the inning.
Christian Mercedes relieved Knight in the top of
the sixth inning with four runs already in: Mer-
cedes retired the next two batters to end the threat.

son. "Where he goes he
is going to dig in and do
his best to earn every-
thing he gets."
Milton admitted that
conditioning may be his
one weakness as he
looks to moving toward
Jacksonville. "My condi-
tioning. I need to im-


prove there," he said. "I
have the strength and
speed but I don't have
the endurance. Coach
Bell is sending me a con-
ditioning program. I
have to take a condition-
ing test and Coach Bell
said it was a hard one.
But once I pass it I will
be set the full four
years."


Milton said he has en-
joyed his four years at
Lafayette High School
and definitely will miss
it. "The coaching staff
here has been great.
Coach (Marc)Beach and
Coach Pearson have
done a lot for me," he
said. "Even when I
broke my knee my ju-
nior year they were


there to support me and
push me on. I am really
going to miss them and I
will never forget them."
Milton listed breaking
his knee as his biggest
disappointment in high

Madison was a three-
run home run off the
bat of Witherspoon.
Trailing 1-0,
Lafayette took a 4-1
lead with four in the
fourth inning. Matt
Milton and Sergio
Perez had consecutive
singles. Jamal Reid
reached on a fielder's
choice play with a run
scoring. An error al-

run in the inning. He
later scored on Cody
Singletary's RBI single.
The Hornets pushed
across one run in the
sixth inning and plated
three in the seventh.
Knight collected his
second hit of the game
with a one out double.
Ethan Perry, who had
two safeties, singled
moving Knight to third
base. Knight rode


gletary's sacri-
fice fly to centerfield.
A two base throwing
error by Madison third
baseman Jacob Mc-
Daniel off the bat of
Bubba Fillyaw opened
the door for three runs
for Lafayette in the sev-
enth. With one out,
Milton singled home
Fillyaw. The Hornets
loaded the bases on
two walks and two
runs scored on Perry's
second hit of the game.
Knight finished with
three hits for the Hor-
nets with Perry collect-
ing two safeties. Milton
and Fillyaw each had
two hits in the game.
Knight allowed eight
runs on five hits in the

worked. He struck out
three batters and is-
sued six walks.

five errors in the game
and stranded six base
runners.

Currently, there are 21
types of mail fraud that
have been identified by
the US Postal Service.
These include chain let-
ters, insurance fraud,
medical fraud, internet
fraud, sweepstakes and
'free' prizes, and pieces
of mail made to look like
legitimate government
mail.
Every year the postal
inspection service inves-

stances of mail fraud.

mail fraud per year,"
Frank J. Schissler, US
Postal Inspector
spokesperson said in an
email interview.
The postal inspection
service receives numer-
ous complaints about
mail fraud every year.
According to Schissler
the most common com-
plaints his department
has been receiving in-
volve identity theft and
fraud.
"These cases are a type
of mail fraud because
usually the mail is used
in some manner to fur-


ther the scheme,"
Schissler said.
He cited fake credit
card applications and
other fraudulent docu-
ments as prime examples
of this crime.
The postal service ad-
vises consumers to be
very cautious about re-
sponding to any offer
and to do plenty of re-
search to make sure the
sender as well as the of-
fer is legitimate.
"If it sounds too good
to be true, it probably is,"
says the U.S. Postal Ser-
vice.

from the Trenton and

Chan Perry, a native
of Mayo, is excited
about being able to
serve the banking
needs of his hometown.
Perry said while
working for First Fed-
eral, Lafayette State
Bank and Drummonds
Community Bank, he
gained invaluable
knowledge and experi-
ence as well as a strong
desire to open his own
bank in Mayo.
Last year, before his
dream came true, he
talked with fellow
Mayo Rotary Club
members about his pro-
ject. The response was
warm and overwhelm-
ing, according to Perry.
As he waited for the
construction of his new
office to be completed,
Perry used a small but
modest office at
Lafayette Farm Bureau.
In a few months,
Drummond Communi-
ty Bank of Mayo
opened.
Perry hopes Drum-
mond Community
Bank will be a part of
Mayo in the years to
come.

The real estate indus-
try, like the economy, is
sometimes unpre-
dictable, according to
Brack Jackson, owner of
Trees and Trails Realty of
Mayo.
Jackson, a Lafayette
County native, is very
knowledgeable about
the real estate business,
as well as other realtors
in the community such
as Heather Neill of
Lighthouse Realty of
North Florida. He pro-
vided Mayo Rotary Club
members a brief inside
look into the current
housing market situa-
tion on Wednesday,
March 26.
When he opened his
business several years
ago, Jackson wanted the
citizens of Mayo to have
someone they could rely
upon who knows the
community, rather than
someone who has never
lived here.
According to Jackson,
the housing market had
positive growth from

quickly rose in 2005 be-
cause the economy was
growing and business in
the housing industry was
booming. Beginning in
2006, the market declined
sharply and has contin-
ued in the direction.
Jackson feels the realty
industry will improve,
but it will take time to re-
cover, despite the fact
that the dollar has weak-
ened, the price of oil has
risen to record levels, as
well as other factors af-
fecting consumers.

Trace Adkins brings 'American



Man' tour to Wild Adventures _


Trace Adkins will bring his 2008 American Man
Tour to the Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta
on Saturday, April 5. The concert kicks off at 6:30
p.m. The concert is FREE with the price of park
admission ($45 ages 10 54 or $40 ages 3-5 and
55+). Lawn chairs can be set up as soon as the park
opens the day of the show. Reserved seating is
available for an additional $25. Reserve seats and
park admission can be purchased at the park, by
calling 229-219-7080, option 2 or online at
www.wildadventures.net.
When Adkins takes the stage, his towering
presence and floor-shaking baritone instantly
energize the concert hall. An experienced entertainer
who likes to have fun during his live shows, Adkins
can keep his audience on their feet with high energy
performances of his good time anthems like "I Got
My Game On," "(This Ain't) No Thinkin' Thing," "I
Left Something Turned On At Home," "Hot Mama,"
"Rough & Ready," "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk," and
"Ladies Love Country Boys." He also shows off his
serious side with the soul-stirring ballads like "Every
Light In The House," "Arlington," "I'm Tryin'" and
his latest Top 10 smash hit, "You're Gonna Miss
This."
Aside from his big tour, Adkins recently released
American Man, Greatest Hits Volume II, his second
collection of solid hits that have helped turned him
into a superstar. He also added author to his r6sum6
with his first book, A Personal Stand: Observations
and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck, an


entertaining and thought-
provoking personal view on
everything from the
environment to immigration to
the war on terror.
Additionally, Adkins has
become a TV star on the NBC
hit reality series "The *
Celebrity Apprentice," where
celebrities use their talent and
business sense to try and win
money for various charities.
Adkins says he decided to do
the show only because it was
an unprecedented opportunity
to bring exposure to his
charity of choice, the "Food
Allergy Anaphylaxis
Network" because his six-year
old daughter suffers from
severe food allergies. Adkins,

Sw"I, 77


As the aging process progresses, most men begin making health a
priority. But many of the health problems both men and women encounter
as they age are the result of lifestyle choices they made when they were
younger and continued to practice as they got older. Simply put, what's
done to a body today will affect how it behaves tomorrow.
Fortunately, the human body has an amazing capacity to recuperate,
meaning it's never too late to make lifestyle changes that can make a
person's golden years more healthy and enjoyable. While the term
"lifestyle change" can seem overwhelming, many of these changes are far
easier to put into practice than it might seem.
Watch your weight. Obesity levels have exceeded, reached or are
approaching all-time highs in many developed nations. Obesity can be
especially harmful to adults approaching their senior years, as obesity
increases a person's risk for diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, and
heart disease.
Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the best things a person can do to
avoid the series of problems that men and women can encounter as they
get older. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) points
out that defining a healthy weight depends on a number of individual
factors. For example, age is a determining factor, as a healthy weight for
an individual at 45 might not be considered healthy when that individual
turns 60.
Because each person is unique, defining a healthy weight is something
that should be discussed on a case-by-case basis with a physician. Even if
a friend of the same age and similar body type has been given a healthy
weight, for instance, this doesn't mean that's a healthy weight for all
people of that age and body type. Past health history and physical activity
level are significant factors in determining a healthy weight, too.
Make dietary changes. To some, the thought of changing their diet is an
unwelcome one. Because food is such a big part of most people's lives,
this is often seen as the most difficult lifestyle change to make. However, a
series of subtle changes as opposed to a massive dietary overhaul can do
the trick.
While many people eat healthily during their three meals per day, it's the
in-between meals hours where diet often suffers the most. Snacks high in
saturated fat, such as potato chips, can be very unhealthy. By switching
snacks to a serving of fruit or vegetables, men and women can ensure
they're getting their recommended servings each day, and may be reducing
the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases as a result. The majority of
fruits and vegetables are low in fat and calories, and also provide essential
vitamins and minerals. For those unsure of how much fruit or vegetables
they should be eating each day, the CDC offers a fruits and vegetables
calculator on its Web site at www.cdc.gov.
Be more active. Becoming more physically active is something many
adults need to do. The CDC estimates that 50 percent of American men
and women do not get enough physical activity to provide health benefits.
Physicians recommend 30 minutes of daily, moderate physical exercise.
While finding the time each day can be a commitment, 30 minutes, the

Daily exercise is a valuable tool for men and women looking to get
and stay healthier.


length of a typical television sitcom, really is not much time at all.
Those who haven't been active in a while need to ease back into
being physically active, perhaps starting with a daily walk on flat
ground and then gradually tailoring a routine that is more challenging
and beneficial as the body acclimates itself to daily activity. Again,
because every person is unique, it's best to consult a physician before
beginning any new exercise routine.
Recognize and deal with stress. Stress can be very harmful to all
men and women. The negative side effects of stress are both physical
and mental. Stress can lead to excess weight gain, which, as
previously mentioned, can increase the likelihood of heart disease,
stroke, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Mentally, excess stress
affects mood, which can negatively impact relationships with friends,
family and coworkers.
While stress is a fact of life for most, both in their professional and
private lives, it's important to recognize that stress can be very
detrimental. Though there are no guaranteed and foolproof ways to
reduce and manage stress, research has shown that exercise has
proven a reliable source of stress relief for many people.

AND THE GOSPEL MUST -BE


AFTER EASTER


By Pam Campbell

ast month we celebrated
Easter, the death and
resurrection of Jesus the
savior of the world. Now that
Easter has passed, do we still remember all
that Jesus did for us? He was beat and
bruised for our healing, he wore a crown of
thorns upon his head, he was hung on an
old rugged cross with huge, old rusty nails
through his hands and feet, he was pierced
in his side, he was denied water, he was spat
on, laughed at, ridiculed and so much more.
He endured all of the sickness and disease
and all of the sins for every man, woman,
boy and girl that has ever lived and ever
will live, he
literally gave his
all. God sent his
only son Jesus to
be the ultimate
supreme sacrifice,
because he loves all of
us so very much. We
know that Jesus rose
from the dead and sits
with God the father
interceding for us always. He is always
with us and he really wants us to
understand how much we can depend
on him. That is why we need to learn
to trust in him, not just at Easter, but
all of the time.

So God is asking us to trust him, to
rely on his character, his ability, his
strength and his truth. Rely on God's
character, a God who cannot lie, who is
always faithful, who gave his son Jesus to
die for our sins, our creator, redeemer, our
father, our savior, our friend, our Lord. Yes,
that is the kind of character to rely on,
someone who is steadfast and true. In the
Bible we read in Hebrews 6:17-19 the
following promise: 6:17 "In the same way
God, desiring even more to show to the
heirs of the promise: the unchangeableness
of His purpose, interposed with an oath,
6:18 so that by twounchangeable things in
which it is impossible for God to lie, we
who have taken refuge would have strong
encouragement to take hold of the hope set
before us. 6:19 This hope we have as an
anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and
steadfast." You see when you put your trust
in God, you are putting it in one who cannot
lie, one who is your anchor, your hope, one
who is steadfast, we take refuge in this and
.will find strong encouragement. We know
that if we rely on him we are relying on
truth as Jesus tells us this in John 14:6 Jesus
answered, "I am the way and the truth and
the life." He is the truth, he died on the
cross for us. We see in Ephesians 1:19 that
God has the strength we need to rely on.
"and his incomparably great power for us
who believe. That power is like the working
of his mighty strength, Jeremiah 17:7 "But
blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose confidence is in him. God asks us to
put our confidence in him.

How many of you have ever wondered
why bad things seem to happen to Christian
people? Have you ever felt like things in

your life were not going the right way?
When tragedy strikes someone that you
know, or makes the world news, do you find
it hard to trust? I know that sometimes
things happen to Christian people that we
don't understand. They may lose a loved
one, sometimes even a child and only God
knows why. Some I know have severe
-illness in their bodies, though they pray and
love the Lord. I know some that seem to
always have some type of sickness attacking
them, but they still trust in the Lord. I have
had people ask me many
times why I have not
been healed, why I
don't just run and
jump and walk. I truly
have asked God why
myself at times in the
past. I have learned
the simple


truth
that I don't
know the
answers to
all of the
whys, but
God does.
Another
thing that I
have
learned is
that if I
trust in him,
it doesn't
really matter,
whether I walk
or I don't, it
has nothing at
all to do with my
happiness, my joy,
my salvation. No
matter what the
circumstance you
may find your or
a loved one in,
trust in God, he
will not fail you.
Remember, Romans 8:28 says
"And we know that all things
work together for good to them that love
God, to them who are the called according
to his purpose."

SWe must learn to trust in God regardless
of the circumstances. Jesus trusted his
father, God all the way to his death on the
cross and his resurrection. Sometimes we
may pray for something to happen the way
we want, and maybe we believe it is what
God wants, but still the answer may not be
the one we are looking for. There are times
when God answers our prayers and the
answer may be no. Those are times it is
especially important that we really learn to
trust in God.

As it says in Psalm 30:4 "Blessed is that
man that maketh the Lord his trust." They
have learned to trust. Have you learned to
put your confidence in the Lord, to trust
him, to rely on God's character, his strength,
his ability, to leave it all to God and not
I be afraid? When something bad
happens, when someone we love dies, or
a tragedy is in the news, when what we
pray for doesn't happen the way we want it
to, do we think God is not there, or that he
isn't listening, or doesn't care? God is
always there, he always cares about you, he
always hears you and he always answers
your prayers. Learn to trust in God, to rely
on him, he is your strength, he is your
salvation and he will always keep his
promises. When you feel sorrow that you
don't feel you can bear take it to Jesus.
"Casting all your care upon him: for he
careth for you." 1 Peter 5:7
The verse Isaiah 12:2 says "Surely God is
my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.
The LORD, is my strength and power."
Remember we are talking about trust,
trusting in God, our God that is faithful, that
cannot lie. He is our God who will never
leave us. He is God, we can have
confidence in God and totally rely on him. 1
John 4:16 "And so we know and rely on the
love God has for us. God is love. Whoever
lives in love lives in God, and God in him."
Next time something goes wrong, someone
you love dies or becomes ill, or you don't
feel well, or something happens on the news
that grieves you, or causes you to fear,
remember to Trust in the Lord. "Trust in the
Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto
thine own understanding. In all thy ways
acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy
paths." Proverbs 3:5-6

Yes, Easter may have passed but Jesus
Lives today, be sure to remember Jesus, to
trust in him, he gave his ALL for you.

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER


AFTER EASTER


By Pam Campbell

Last month we celebrated
Easter, Jesus dying on the cross
and being raised from the dead.
Now that Easter is passed, how are
you doing with trusting in him? We
need to remember all that Jesus did
for us and trust in him always.
Jesus was beat and bruised for our
healing, he wore a crown of thorns
upon his head, he was hung on an
old rugged cross with huge, old
rusty nails through his hands and
feet, he was pierced in his side, he
was denied water, he was spat on,
laughed at, ridiculed and so much
more. He endured all of the
sickness and disease and all of the
sins for every man, woman, boy
and girl that has ever lived and
ever will live, he literally gave his
all. God sent his only son Jesus to
be the ultimate supreme sacrifice,
because he loves all of us so very
much. We know that Jesus rose
from the dead and lives today. He
is always with us and he really
wants us to
understand
how much
we can
depend on

need to
learn to
trust in
him, not
just at
Easter,
but all of
the time.
How
many of
you can
think of
times that
you have
had to
trust
somebody?
Trust is very
important,
especially when it comes to
trusting in God. It should be very
easy to rely on God. God cannot
lie, and he is always faithful. God
gave his son Jesus so that we can
be saved, he is our father, our
friend, and our Lord. Yes, that is
the one that we can put our trust in.
Jesus had to trust his father, God,
all the way through his death on
the cross and his resurrection. We
know that if we rely on the Lord
we are relying on truth as Jesus
tells us this in John 14:6 Jesus
answered, "I am the way and the
truth and the life." He is the truth.
"But blessed is the man who trusts
in the LORD, whose confidence is
in him. God asks us to put our
confidence and trust in him.
Have any of you kids ever
wondered why bad things happen?
Maybe you wonder why someone
that you know had to die, or why
they are sick, or why you are sick.
We need to learn to trust in. God no
matter what is going on or what
happens. Sometimes you may pray
for something to happen a certain
way and it doesn't, that is a time to
learn to trust God. God always
answers our prayers, sometimes
the answer is just different than
what we expect. Whatever happens
in your life, now and as you get
older you need to learn to trust in
the Lord.


Have you learned to trust the
Lord, to leave it all to God and not
be afraid? When something bad
happens, or when what we pray for
doesn't happen the way we want it
to, do we think God is not there, or
that he isn't listening, or doesn't
care? God is always there, he
always cares about you, he always
hears you and he always answers
your prayers. Learn to trust in God,
he will always keep his promises.
Remember we are talking about
trust, trusting in God, our God that
is faithful. He is our God who will
never leave us. "Trust in the Lord
with all thine heart; and lean not
unto thine own understanding. In
all thy ways acknowledge him, and
he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs
3:5-6
Yes, Easter may have passed but
Jesus Lives today, be sure to
remember Jesus, to trust in him, he
gave his ALL for you.
