1 killed in wreck
Saturday night
Florida Highway Patrol
reports that Travis Earl Good-
man, 43, of Bonifay, was killed
in a wreck Saturday night.
Goodman's 1,999 Dodge
pickup was traveling east on
County 278 (Pioneer Road) in
Washington County. The truck
drifted onto the south shoulder
with its right-side tires. Good-
man steered left, and the truck
crossed both travel -lanes of
County 278 onto the north
shoulder. Goodman steered
right, causing the vehicle rotate
in a clockwise direction.
The truck overturned multiple
times, ejecting Goodman, and
came to final rest upright, facing
south and blocking both travel
lanes of County 278.
Goodman ended up on the
north shoulder of the road, east
of the vehicle. He was pro-
nounced dead at the scene.
FHP reported he was not
wearing a seat belt.

Wreck leaves 1 man

A Marianna man faces multi-
ple charges following a one-
vehicle wreck Saturday about
12:40 a.m. in Calhoun County.
Florida Highway Patrol
reports that a 1997 Chevy
pickup driven by Handsford
Eugene Griffis was traveling
westbound on State 20 at KB
Jones Road when, according to
Griffis, he and his passenger,
Jerry Lee Sullivan of Grand
Ridge, decided to turn around.
Griffis said Sullivan opened
the passenger side door of the
pick-up while it was still moving
in an attempt to check on his
dog in the bed of the truck. Sul-
livan fell out of the truck onto the
south shoulder of the road. The
right rear tire of the truck rolled
over Sullivan's head. He was
airlifted to Bay Medical Center in
critical condition.
Griffis and Sullivan were
under the influence of alcohol at
the time of the crash. Griffis has
been charged with DUI, DUI with
serious bodily injury and DUI

Essay earns studc

Scholarship awarded to
7th-grade VMS Student
Staff Writer

The Governor's Recognition Scholarship
was awarded to Stephanie Gipson, a seventh-
grade student at Vernon Middle School, on
May 29 in the school auditorium.
The Governor's Recognition Scholarship is
a prepaid, four-year scholarship that covers
all tuition and local fees to any public university
in Florida and has an estimated value of
This scholarship is awarded annually to sev-
enth-grade students who submit well-written
essays about the legacy of a past Florida gover-
nor of their choosing and is a sum of accumu-
lated private donations.
"This scholarship helps our students learn
about our state through the eyes of our gover-
nors," Foundation Vice Chairperson Sandra
Murman said in a press release.
"We're helping students pursue their dreams
of a college education."
Gipson chose Governor Lawton Chiles, who
was a U.S. Senator from 1970 to 1989 and then

served as governor of Florida from 1990 to
"Governor Lawton Chiles' legacy leaves
Florida's students with the opportunity to
improve their lives and futures," Gipson wrote
in her essay, "Lawton Chiles' Legacy."
"Governor Chiles thought that Florida's eco-
nomic success depended upon our children's
educational success."
Gipson told of the two-year struggle Chiles
had with the legislature for "accountability that
involved setting goals and standards for public
schools while he urged to increase funding for
school construction, textbooks and technology"
and how the state then was "provided $2.7 bil-
lion for classroom space and added an extra
$76 million for child care for working families."
She also included Chiles' Healthy Start pro-
gram "for mothers and infants to assist in get-
ting prenatal and infant care that they need."
"Since the program started in 1992, the
infant death rate has dropped over twenty per-
cent. He wanted to keep the death rates down
even after he left office, so he opened the Law-
ton and Rhea Chiles Center for Healthy Moth-
ers and Babies," Gipson wrote.
"He saved many lives with that one program
and many mothers thank him for what he has
done to help them and their children."

Time to get ready for hurricane season

Managing Editor

Hurricane season began June 1,
and state and local officials are
passing out information to resi-
dents on how to cope with these
potentially deadly storms.
Washington County Emergency
Management Agency has pro-
vided information in the form
of "shopping lists" of emergency
supplies to purchase to prepare
for hurricanes. EMA Director
Roger Dale Hagan and staff began
sending the lists each month ear-
lier this year to give residents
plenty of time to stock up and

In 2004 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was
conducted to provide information about any potential sources 'of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are 4 potential sources
of contamination identified for this system with a moderate to high susceptibility levels. The assessment results are available on the
FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp or they can be obtained from Tim Ray at

We at the City of Chipley would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and
protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the
information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

2007 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
City of Chipley P.O. Box 1007
Chipley, FL 32428

We are pleased to announce that our drinking
water meets all federal and state requirements.

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water
and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water.
We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources.
We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from three wells. The wells draw from the
Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Tim Ray at (850)638-6347. We encourage
our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled
meetings. They are held on the second Thursday of the month at 6:00 PM; City Hall.
The City of Chipley routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and
regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to
December 31, 2007. Data obtained before January 1, 2007, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in
accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the
following definitions:

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close
to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or
expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water
system must follow.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE) An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR).
The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of
trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage
1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.
Maximum residual disinfection level (MRDL) The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing
evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfection level goal (MRDLG) The level of drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or
expected risk of health. MRDLG's to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.

** Results in the Level Detected column for radiological contaminants, inorganic contaminants, synthetic organic contaminants including pesticides
and herbicides, and volatile organic contaminants are the highest average at any of the sampling points or the highest detected level at any sampling
point. depending on the sampling frequency.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As
water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive
material, and can pick up substances resulting fiom the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural
livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result fioom urban stormwater runoff,
industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stornnwater runoff, and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial
processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormnnwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water
provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled
water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence
of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health
effects can be obtained by calling the Enviromnental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe and dependable
water supply, we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit all of our customers. These improvements are sometimes
reflected as rate structure adjustments. Thank you for understanding.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons
such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or
other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice
about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by
Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

Sen. Nelson missed the mark on oil demand

Senator Nelson, speaking
to a group at Blue Lake
recently, said it just came
down to the fact that Amer-
icans must lessen their
demand for oil.
"The more you lessen the
demand, the more the
prices will come down," he
This seems to be a very
simplistic and fatalistic
approach to our energy
Global demand for oil
reached 85.7 million barrels
per day in 2007, a modest
one-percent increase over
the 84.9 million barrels con-
sumed daily in 2006. This
marked the third-straight
year in which oil demand
grew at an annual rate of
less than two percent.
Despite the slow growth in
demand, oil prices rose
from just above $50 per bar-
rel in January to near $100
at year's end, close to the
all-time, inflation-adjusted
price record that was
reached in the early 1980s.
U.S. oil consumption
was virtually unchanged for
the third year in a row, as
rising oil prices discouraged
demand despite three years
of steady economic growth.
During the same period,
China increased its petro-
leum consumption by 5.5
percent in 2007, up from,7.3
million barrels per day in
2006 to 7.7 million barrels.
It now accounts for nearly
nine percent of the world's
total oil use. Over the past
decade, China nearly has
doubled its oil consumption.
So let me see if I have this
right. Americans must
lessen their demand for oil:
"The more you lessen the
demand, the more the
prices will come down."

The way I see it, we should push
for new technology for the long
term. In the short term, we should
open the Gulf of Mexico and
ANWAR to drilling and
exploration. Drill off the coast of
California, and get over the "not
in my backyard" mentality.

How is that working out
for us so far?
Senator Nelson also is
suggesting Americans need
to look at other alternatives
for fuel. He said Germany
now is mandating solar pan-
els on the roofs of every
Well, let us look at solar
panels on the roofs of
homes and wind turbine
farms. Solar panels on roofs
are fine for heating swim-
ming pools or water, but it is
not a large-generation
resource. Florida Power and
Light has had a 10-kilowatt
site in Martin County for a
However, the company
already has decided solar
and wind in Florida
"cannot on their own
meet the large-scale
demands for power." Both
need lots of land, and
Florida land is too expen-
sive. Too much cloud cover
hampers solar power pro-
duction on a large scale, and
wind power generally
requires sustained winds of
12 miles per hour or
stronger, which makes
deserts and mountain
ranges a better bet than
When you consider wind
power in Florida and its

effects on wildlife, you
should consider what one
wildlife biologist calls the
"poofing factor," when
migrating birds collide with
the turbine blades and
simply are obliterated, leav-
ing no evidence on the
ground; in other words, the
" birds go poof! With Florida
being in the Atlantic migra-
tory flyway, this could be
very detrimental to their
Asked about oil drilling
plans for the Straits of
Florida (drilling by China),
Nelson said under current
agreements, there could be
drilling 45 miles off Key
West, which he saw as a
danger to the economics of
Let us briefly explore the
subject of slant drilling.

Florida, China has seized
the opportunity to gobble
up these deposits, which run
throughout Latin America,
the Caribbean and along
the U.S. Gulf coast. There
are reports circulating that
Chinese firms are planning
to slant drill off the Cuban
coast near the Florida
Straits, tapping into U.S. oil
reserves that are estimated

at 4.6 billion to 9.3 billion
barrels. This compares with
four billion to 10 billion bar-
rels believed to be beneath
the Alaska National
Wildlife Refuge.
(ANWAR) where drilling is
held up in Congress because
of the objections of environ-
mental groups, which warn
of endangering caribou.
Permission to drill in the
refuge, which experts are
certain will not present any
environmental hazard, has
failed by just two votes in
the Senate. Senator Nelson
voted against drilling in
The irony is that Chinese
drilling could be even
more of an environmental
hazard because China is not
as concerned about or
equipped to deal with any
potential ecological disaster
as the result of spills.
In other words, China
gets the oil and leaves the
U.S. taxpayers to clean up
the mess. I'm sure you
have read stories of the
monumental pollution in
China. Senator Nelson says
the only way out of the
problem that he can see is
for Americans to lessen our
dependency on oil.
The way I see it, we
should push for new tech-
nology for the long term. In
the short term, we should
open the Gulf of Mexico
and ANWAR to drilling
and exploration. Drill off
the coast of California, and
get over the "not in my
backyard" mentality.
We should build new oil
refineries in this country for
the first time in more than
30 years. The last refinery
built in the U.S. was in
Garyville, La., and it started
up in 1976.

We should build new
nuclear facilities. According
to the U.S. Dept. of Energy,
the last reactor built was the
"River Bend" plant in
Louisiana. Its construction
began in March 1977. The
last plant to begin commer-
cial operation is the "Watts
Bar" plant in Tennessee,
which came online in 1996.
On the other hand, we
could just continue to turn
our food crops into fuel;
resign ourselves to being

held hostage by OPEC and
get ready to shell out $10 to
$15 for a gallon of gas.
Knowing how responsive
our Congress is to the will of
"We the People," I am con-
sidering opening a bicycle
shop in Chipley, if I can just
find a company that still
makes them in this country.

Several members of
Wausau Garden Club met at
Town Hall Friday morning
to make a display for
National Garden Week.
Flowers and plants, grown
and arranged by club
members, are displayed
on a coffee table under
the shady alcove adjoining
the Town Hall business
When Governor Charlie
Crist signed a proclamation
earlier in the year making
June 1-7 Garden Week in
the state of Florida, he said,
"gardening enables mem-
bers of garden clubs across
the nation and the world to
serve others in the commu-
nities in which they reside
and work."
A framed copy of the
proclamation is part of the
display the ladies set up Fri-
day. They are sharing flow-
ering plants grouped in large
bowls and vegetable plants
growing in individual pots,
among them sweet basil, hot
pepper and others.
The proclamation notes
that "gardeners seek to add
beauty, splendor, fragrance
and nutrition to our lives

"The tobacco industries paid millions
for lobbyists to defeat him, but in what is
known as the 'best fight of his life' he won
the battle," Gipson wrote.
"In the end tobacco industries have
agreed to pay the state of Florida $11 bil-
lion dollars over a 25 year period. The
industries agreed to remove advertise-

"With his help and programs, he has

readiness to move forward to higher goals,
expresses the ultimate mission of the pub-

Governor Lawtorf Chiles' Legacy leaves
Florida's students with the opportunity to
improve their lives and futures. With
these opportunities, he was able to raise
standards for education, improve health
benefits for mothers and children, and
to force tobacco industries to tell the
truth about the side effects of using
tobacco, which will prevent even more of
Florida's money from being used to cover
patients with illnesses caused by the use of
Governor Chiles thought that Florida's
economic success depended upon our
children's educational success. He forced
accountability that involved setting goals
and standards for public schools while he
urged to increase funding for school con-
struction, textbooks and technology.
Finally, the Legislature agreed and pro-
vided $2.7 billion for classroom space and
added an extra $76 million for childcare
for working families. It took two long years
to accomplish this goal, but Chiles was
proud of his success.
In Governor Chiles' winning election of
1990, he started a program called Healthy
Start for mothers and infants to assist in
getting prenatal and infant care that they
Since the program started in 1992, the
infant death rate has dropped over twenty
percent than before the program was ever
started. He wanted to keep the death rates
down even after he left office, so he
opened the Lawton and Rhea Chiles Cen-
ter for Healthy Mothers and Babies. This

program helped mothers and infants all
over the state of Florida and it was Gover-
nor Chiles' great honor to help them all.
He has saved many lives with that one pro-
gram and many mothers thank him for
what he has done to help them and their
In 1995 there was a lawsuit filed against
the tobacco industry. This suit had three
key goals: to get back money that Florida
had spent treating patients that suffered
tobacco related illnesses, to tell the truth
to children about the effects of the use of
their product, and to try to prevent chil-
dren from starting to use tobacco. The
tobacco industries paid millions for lobby-

The stranger

ast Mt. Zion holds baptism at Wright's Creek

Submitted photos

Pastor, East Mt. Zion UMC

Wayside Park just off highway 79
is a favorite spot to cool off for
many on a hot summer day in May.
The park has many amenities that
attract people from all over the
area. This beautiful park has picnic
tables, grills, a playground and
probably the favorite is Wrights
Wrights Creek runs through
Wayside Park and has been a
favorite swimming hole for
residents of our area for many
Old timers reminisce about the
"old" swimming hole on the East
side of the bridge while the
youngest generation enjoys the cool
waters just at the edge of the park
on the West side.
The smell of a fresh cut
watermelon, barbecues and the
sounds of the children splashing and
playing filled the park but something
else quickly became the focus just
after lunch time this past Sunday.
Not long after lunch was over, a
crowd of folks dressed a bit more
formal for an afternoon at the park
arrived. About 20 or so folks from
the East Mt. Zion United
Methodist church arrived just
before 2 p.m. during the peak of
the afternoon heat.
They quickly found out that the
baptismal waters had already been

stirred just moments before by
another congregation that baptized
four of its members.
The sounds of the children, music
and merriment faded to a whisper
as those that came for baptism
entered the cool refreshing waters
of Wrights Creek. It was very clear
that even though church had
already let out, the services were
continuing in a very unusual setting
in the midst of a fun filled family
park on this particular Sunday.
In previous baptisms held at the
park complete strangers have felt
the Spirit move and have also come
for baptism. Many of the crowd

gathered around as the baptisms
proceeded in the middle of the
refreshing waters. Perhaps the most
unusual part of this baptism is that
these were Methodists.
As the pastor I often find myself
explaining what we believe as
Methodists concerning baptism.
One such fellow seemed very
interested as I explained to him
about the three methods of baptism
used throughout the Bible.
The majority of this congregation
chooses full immersion as their
method of baptism, and many find
it as an opportunity to witness to

who was new to our small
Tennessee town. From the
beginning, Dad was fascinated
with this enchanting
newcomer, and soon invited
him to live with our family.
The stranger was quickly
accepted and was around to
welcome me into the world a
few months later. As I grew
up I never
questioned his
place in our family.
In my young mind, ..
each member had
a special niche.
My brother,
Bill, five years my
senior, was my Let
example. Fran, my
younger sister, Light
gave me an Wes
opportunity to play
'big brother' and
develop the art of teasing. My
parents were complementary
instructors-Mom taught me to
love the word of God, and
Dad taught me to obey it.
But, the stranger was our
storyteller. He could weave
the most fascinating tales.
Adventures, mysteries and
comedies were daily
conversations. He could hold
our whole family spell-bound
for hours each evening. If I
wanted to know about
politics, history, or science, he
knew it all. He knew about
the past, understood the
present, and seemingly could
predict the future. The
pictures he could draw were
so lifelike that I would often
laugh or cry.
He was like a friend to the
whole family. He took Dad,
Bill and me to our first major
league baseball game. He was
always encouraging us to see
the movies and he even made
arrangements to introduce us
to several movie stars. My
brother and I were deeply
impressed by John Wayne in

and pray. I wonder now if she
ever prayed that the stranger
would leave.
You see, my dad ruled our
household with certain moral
convictions. But, this stranger
never felt an obligation to
honor them. Profanity, for
example, was not allowed in
our house not from us, from
our friends, or adults. Our

TV Probably the greatest and

the present century has been
the television. It is a device

A story of the flounder that got away

We had a very interesting Memo-
rial Day weekend, as we had a great
service Sunday at the church and
honored those who had given their
all that we might enjoy the great
freedom we have here in America.
The Lord led me to preach on the
subject "Freedom Worth Dying For"
using the scripture of John 8:31-36
where Jesus told those listening,
which where mostly descendants of
Abraham, "If you abide in my word,
you are my disciples indeed. And
you shall know the truth, and the
truth shall make you free." They
answered him, "We are Abraham's
descendants, and have never been in
bondage to anyone. How can you
say, 'You will be made free'".
Sounds like most Americans I know,
but "Jesus answered them, most
assuredly, I say to you, whoever com-
mits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave
does not abide in the house forever,
but a son abides forever. Therefore
if the Son makes you free, you shall
be free indeed.""(NKJV). In this
text we found that though you may
look free as people look at you from
the outside, most are not free inside

because we see the results of sin
everyday on the news, most people
are a slave to sin.
A lesson that came up during the
message that I think will be remem-

bered the most is

Tim Hall

"your freedom
ends, where
mine begins"
or visa versa.
In other
words, when
the traffic
light turns
green for
you, my free-
dom ended
because it
turned red on
my side, this
is a lesson

that can be applied to most of our
lives. But true freedom only comes
when we are willing to die ourselves
so that we can come alive in Christ,
thus choosing the best slavery,
because everyone is a slave to some-
thing or someone. I have chosen and
you can choose to allow Christ and
his word to be that which you are
enslaved, because he paid the ulti-

mate price upon the cross that we
might be set free from the bondage
that sin places each of us.
On Monday, I also witnessed the
scriptures come alive and be fulfilled
right before my eyes. Friends had
invited us to go with them down to
the jetties and go fishing. Actually
seven of us packed up and took off
down to the gulf that morning. The
wind was a little too rough for us to
fish from the jetties so we went over
to the dock and began to fish. A lot
of other people had the same idea,
but nobody was catching anything
but a few small sharks, which they
where throwing back. When it
seemed that everyone was just get-
ting good practice at casting, it hap-
pened. I thought my hook was hung
on something, but I kept trying to
bring it in as I had when it had got-
ten hung on the rocks at the jetties. I
never broke my line, because with a
little patience and persistence I had
always been able to get it undone
before, so I kept on trying this time.
Sure enough, as the end of my line
got closer to the dock and began to
come to the top, I noticed it was still

hard to pull in. As I looked over the
dock to see what the problem was, I
saw it, the prettiest twelve to four-
teen inch flounder that had been
caught that morning from the dock.
I know it was, because it was the only
one caught that morning.
Actually none of us are much of
what you would call fishermen,
because we didn't even take any-
thing to put our catch in. I happened
to have a plastic sack from the store
where I purchased some frozen
shrimp for bait. So the smart guy
that I am, I put my flounder in the
bag and began walking back to the
truck to put him on ice. But, on the
way I saw some strangers looking
over the side of the dock at the fish
swimming by that no one was catch-
ing, and I just had to show them my
catch. As I opened the bag so they
could see it, they where so interested
I just had to open it a little more,
then all of a sudden the flounder,
jumped out of my hand, went over
the dock rail and all the way back
into the water. When 1 went fishing
that morning I was not a fisherman,
but when I left I was, because I now

have the story of the big one that got
For an hour or so, the people that
I had showed the fish to stayed there
on the dock and told everyone that
walked by about the one that got
away and pointed me out. Oh by the
way, I never caught anything else
that day, but just before we headed
home, Judy, my wife, caught a
twenty-four inch trout, and she did-
n't let it get away, plus she has pic-
tures. With that in mind, you now
know the rest of the story.
The moral of the story is, The
Word of God, The Bible, is true and
alive, not in part but in the whole,
never doubt it. "Pride goes before
destruction, and a haughty spirit
before a fall" (Proverbs 16:18

G ol'oves You

It IS S" comfort to know that fio one loves us more
.. than our Heavenly Father. God
oves us and He wants us to
. know that we are never alone
in this world. We may feel that

everyone is against us and that
no one cares what happens
S^ to us. However, sometimes we
encounter problems or setbacks
in our lives, we must have the
faith to trust that God is always
o with us and cares about us-
Regardless of the outcome of
our various problems,we should
A know that with faith in Christ
A we will always be victorious.The
Bible is the inspired word of God
and it tells us that we should live
a life of love, just as Christ loved
Sus and gave Himself up for us
(Ephessians 5:2). Also, God is our
refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble (Psalm
46:1).God truly loves us and He created us to love Him in return.
He wants us to be happy with Him in this world, and to spend
,eternity with Him in the next.

... the Father himself loves you. He loves you because you love
me and have believed that I came from God.
