March comes in like a lion

Northside News

RICHMOND — I can scarcely believe today’s rain has turned into snow showers this evening – with an inch or so accumulation, no less!

Don’t worry, friends, the jonquils, daffodils and buttercups in your yard will survive this probable last bout of winter weather. Though the temperatures are chilly, they are far from freezing.  

I have seen beautiful tulips standing knee-deep in snow, yet God protected their blooms to remain beautiful for weeks.

What an amazing phenomenon, or is it?

God created the fauna and flora in the world. Is it any wonder He governs His creations.

If you are like me, when April rolls around with its fickle weather, you never know if we will be getting gusts of wind that send garbage cans tumbling down the streets or peaceful sunny days which seem to promise a never-ending supply of warm temperatures and sunshine.

One thing is undeniable, warmer weather is on its way.

Don’t forget to move your clock one hour forward this Saturday night. This means you will lose one hour, so don’t be late for church Sunday morning.

Jeremy Wasch, youth minister at Madison Hills Christian Church, would like to announce that Buffalo Wild Wings in the Richmond Centre will be hosting a fundraiser on Monday, March 11, all day long, during regular business hours.

Buffalo Wild Wings will be donating 15 percent from every receipt to support 28 students from Madison Hills Christian Church to take a trip to eastern Tennessee this summer.

Also, Jeremy would like to announce that on March 16, Madison Hills Christian Hills Teens will be attending the annual Winter Jam Concert at Rupp Arena. The cost is $10 per person. Contact Jeremy at the church for more information.

Mount Pleasant Christian Church is sponsoring a food drive for God’s Pantry the entire month of March.

Anyone wishing to contribute food may call the church for more information.

Bluegrass Family Pharmacy, 2187 Lexington Road, Suite 1, Richmond, has changed its Saturday hours to 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The public is encouraged to stop in and see the pharmacy’s large assortment of home-health equipment and products, including hospital beds, braces and many other products to promote home convalescence.    

Happy anniversary wishes go out to Jimmy and Mandy Stokes of Golden Oaks subdivision. The Stokes recently have located to Richmond.  We certainly are happy to congratulate them on 22 years of marriage.

The old adage for the week is as follows: “That boy is a lost ball in high weeds.”

Please contact me with your special days, news events, church and community news at or call me at 527-0411.

Until next week, may God bless you and yours.
