Greetings to all from the Eolia Christian Community Outreach.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
My yard is sporting lots of robins, eating what I assume to be worms. After awaking to a temperature reading of 13 degrees last week, I sure hope they’re a sign that spring is just around the corner.
When the warm weather gets here, we at ECCO will be ready for several projects. We’re already stockpiling rocks and purchased cement to make flowerbeds, cleaned out the birdhouses for their new tenants and plans are in the works to paint the entire ECCO building.
I think this is the only time of the year when I check the weather report daily. Ah, to sit on the porch with a glass of iced tea and enjoy a breeze coming down the hollow while watching the age old transformation as Pine Mountain puts on her purple, yellow and green finery. In the meantime I’ll just continue to keep tabs on the weather report.
We were happy to welcome
Minister Glennas Morris and wife Joyce to our Sunday evening worship service. Glennas brought the message and Joyce sang beautifully.
We also enjoyed our regulars ‘Friends of ECCO’ this week from Cincinnati. A big thanks to the Cumberland Ministry ‘Loaves and Fishes’ for their generous donation of frozen chicken. It will be a welcome addition to the food boxes next month.
New friends this week, John and Mary along with Chad Morgan from Shekinah Land, surprised us with a truckload of clothes. During lunch we had a nice visit while getting acquainted.
We ask everyone to lift Juanita Ruth Boggs up in your prayers as she was rushed to the hospital this week. Her sister Phyllis has been taking care of her for years and also has health issues. Remember Phyllis also in your prayers.
In closing, I want to wish everyone a happy Easter from all of us at ECCO.
