Cracks in Life

Body
Like many houses in our neighborhood, the interior and exterior walls of my house are marked by cracks. The sheetrock on the inside shows signs of stress and movement. Likewise, the mortar in the brick on the outside reflects the foundation has settled or moved since the house was constructed. I’m sure the original builders thought the foundation was thick enough to withstand the shifts in the soil, but the cracks in the walls tell another story.

Friends

Body
We all have friends. Some of our friends are closer to us than others. We associate with all of them, but some of them we will tell our secrets to. So, who is that friend that you are thinking of right now? Who is the friend closest to you? It may be someone from your childhood. It could be your spouse. Maybe a child or parent.

La Palabra de Dios Dice

Body
1 Tesalonicenses 5:14-28 También os rogamos, hermanos, que amonestéis a los ociosos, que alentéis a los de poco ánimo, que sostengáis a los débiles, que seáis pacientes para con todos. Mirad que ninguno pague a otro mal por mal; antes seguid siempre lo bueno unos para con otros, y para con todos. Estad siempre gozosos. Orad sin cesar. Dad gracias en todo, porque esta es la voluntad de Dios para con vosotros en Cristo Jesús. No apaguéis al Espíritu. No menospreciéis las profecías. Examinadlo todo; retened lo bueno. Absteneos de toda especie de mal. Y el mismo Dios de paz os santifique por completo; y todo vuestro ser, espíritu, alma y cuerpo, sea guardado irreprensible para la venida de nuestro Señor Jesucristo. Fiel es el que os llama, el cual también lo hará. Hermanos, orad por nosotros. Saludad a todos los hermanos con ósculo santo. Os conjuro por el Señor, que esta carta se lea a todos los santos hermanos. La gracia de nuestro Señor Jesucristo sea con vosotros. Amén.

San Saba Garden Club announces winners for annual "Decorate for Fall Challenge"

Body
The San Saba Garden Club's (SSGC) annual Decorate for Fall Challenge displays currently found among downtown business locations are somewhat limited in number this year because of (1) COVID-19 concerns and (2) the severe drought earlier this summer in the Texas High Plains. For the last several years, SSGC has held a competition among local businesses in order to select the most creative and attractive fall displays in downtown San Saba!
