The snowstorm negatively impacted many residents throughout Olney. Although our city had minimal resources such as snowplowing side streets, parking lots and driveways, we did have a “ram in the thicket” as mentioned in Genesis 22:13-14, “Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.”
Dr. R.E. Lovett had an appreciation for fine hats (maybe a fetish we might say). The Horany men of Horany’s Department Store shared that common appreciation for fine hats. Freddy Horany, being the salesman he was, would find a great hat he loved then tell Dr. R.E. about it.
Jackie Posey, resident of the House of Mercy (H.O.M.E.), came through the doors two months ago and is currently in the process of learning to trust God in all things. When he completes the 12 month Christian Human Development Program he plans on telling others what trusting God has done for him.
The Olney Community Library and Arts Center (OCLAC) director, Lori Cox, recently obtained a display of art created by artist Kacy Latham of Munday, Texas.
The word of God is a vast treasure that is to be sought above all other things in this lifetime. It is more precious than gold, silver, rubies, or any diamond that glistens like the rays of the rising sun. It is food for the soul that gives strength to the mind, it is eternal, and it will never fade away. It is by this word you will find the meaning of life and the purpose for why you exist. It is not a common word to be read halfheartedly, no, it is to be studied with great intentionality, to be revered as holy, for it is a shield and buttress for those who take refuge in it. It is a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your pathway, for every verse point to God’s salvation only found in the person of Jesus Christ.
