Page 14 A - Thursday, December 15, 2016 - The Glenville Democrat The Glenville Pathfinder - Glenville, WV 26351 Pat's Chat Throughoutthis entire holi- day season, many activities keep us busy, which can add more stress to our lives which are already concerned because of the many troubling situa- tions we see going on every- where. It is my prayer that you will read the following quote carefully and truly try to find ways to bring JOY to your world, in spite of the scary situations, remember- ing that GOD, after all, is in control and that all things are working together for good to those who love the Lord: "Philippians 4:4 'Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.' "... We should not spend our time going over all our sorrows, disappointments, and troubles: but we should think of the happy times we have had, of the interesting things, the beautiful things. God's mercy has been over us; Christ's presence has been with us. Let us put our confi- dence in Him and look for joy...H.M.S.Richards,Walk- ing Through the Bible, Day 344." Count how many times joy, rejoice or other such words appear in this one small book of only four short chapters in the Bible! 1 am including three pic- tures by Sheri-Lyn Sapp of the activities at the church this past weekend. In the first picture you will see Abby again presenting the Children's Story with the help of Hannah, during the wor- ship service. That's Abby in the glasses and Hannah hold- ing the book for the story. The rest of the children, who had all taken baskets around to the audience to collect the children's offering, (to the delight of the adults); were seated in the front pew to lis- ten to the story.
