THE SOUTHERN HERALD Liberty, Mississippi November 1, 2007 Page 8 SIGNS OF FAL~ Feathers of frost on a window pane, Majestic oaks cloaked in robes of yellow and gold. Leaves playing tag In the wlnd. Leafless limbs straining to catch the wind. Staring intently into a warm, crackling fire. Putting on your favorite flannel shirt. The smell of smoke on a cold, damp morning. The sound of a blue tick hound baying on a cool, crisp night. Putting away the bedspread and break- ing out grandma's quilts. Laying the fields by till spring. The wash pot's boiling, waiting on the hog! It's syrup making time! A pot of homemade soup simmering on the stove. The smell of sweet potatoes bakin~ and cracklin' cornbread. Breaking out your old coat, more like a friend than a garment. The outline of geese against a back- ground of blue. The talk of how things used to be around a potbellied stove. With a mule and slide gathering lighter pine for the coming winter. Putting up the fishing pole and oiling up the old smoke pole! ; Hot biscuits, fresh skimmed cream, fried pork tenderloin, and ribbon cane syrup! "Musings of a poor country boy that grew up in the hills and along the banks of the Homochltto River in northwest By Robbie Arnold-October,1998 There are only two ways to liveI your life.

For indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being bur- dened, because we do not want to be unclothed, but to be clothed, in order that what is mortatmay be swallowed up bylife~ Now He who prepared usflor this very PurPose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge." Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord-- !for we walk by faith, not by sight--we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the LoFd. Therefore also we have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be plbasing to Him." what you owe for less If y0u qualify we can: Stop wage garnishments Remove bank levies, tax levies, property seizures Stop payment plans that get you nowhere Settle state and business payroll tax problems Eliminate penalties, interest charges & tax liens If you owe over $15,000 in back taxes, call now t, FREE consultation ,I J "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. Therefore knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; and I hope that we are made manifest also in your consciences. We are not again commending ourselves to you but are giving you an occasion to be proud of us, that you may have an answer for those who take pride in appearance, and, I not in heart. For if we are beside ourselves, it Is for God; =f we are of sound mind it is for you. For~the love of Christ controls us, i ' I having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died;i and He died for all, that they who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. Therefore from now on we recognize no man according to the flesh; even though we have known .Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him longer. "Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were entreating through us; we beg you on behalf of Chrlst, be reconciled to God. He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." 2 Corinthians 5:1-21 (NAS) No Obligation Confidential S 1 0 BREAST CANCER SEMINAR HELD On October 16, 2007, in conjunction with National Breast Cancer Awareness month, Amite County Medical Services, Inc. hosted a reast Cancer Awareness Seminar.
