Muracos move to Cancun, Mexico
Congratulations to Wayne and Stacy Rhynes, who are the proud parents of a baby girl, born Jan. 9, 2007 and named Katrina Leann Rhynes. She weighed four pounds, 14 ounces. Grandparents of the infant are David and Jean Clayton of Potts Camp and Buddy and Sheila Windham of Gulfport. Her older brother, C.J. Rhynes welcomed her home.
Special services will be held for Easter in the Potts Camp churches. The Potts Camp Methodist Church will have a dinner at that time. Holy Services will be held two nights a week at Bethlehem, Cornersville and Potts Camp churches. Rev. Don Newton, pastor of the Potts Camp charge, will be preaching. Everyone is invited to attend.
Mike and Holly Muraco and two children Jordan and baby Colton Michael (born Jan. 5, 2007) have moved to Cancun, Mexico, where he works. Holley is the daughter of Mitch and Jeanette Stone. (T.M. and Annie Ruth Stone, and Mary Lois Gurley are Holly’s grandparents.)
A birthday party was held for Dave Greer on Saturday, March 17 at his home. He is the son of David Jr. and Amy Greer of Cornersville. His seventh birthday was on March 20. A large group of children attended the event. They all had fun. Mary Elizabeth Greer is his 3-year-old sister, and his grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. David Greer Sr. and Mr. and Mrs. Junior Williams of Etta. (I am his great-grandmother.)
I. Jesus is living today. His spirit is a continuous, living presence, outside of us and inside of us. Despite of what we have done, He still loves us.
II. The Bible tells us “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
III. The good news is that “God demonstrated His own love for us that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8)
IV. Like the song of Bill Gaither, “Because He lives, we can face tomorrow.”
V. Others may not like the way we look, but He looks on our hearts, also others may think we are a burden because we are old, but God loves us to the end.
When Christ comes into our lives, He changes everything! Christ it the greatest gift known to man! Live so that others will want to know your Savior!
Prayer: Lord, help us to show compassion, to a world that is lost in sin, so when we share the gospel, hungry souls for Christ we’ll win. For Christ’s sake, amen.
Perry White, 91, former Potts Camp School principal from Houston, died March 20. Many of us remember him as a kind and loving person. We send love and sympathy to his family.
Prayer list: June Person Shumaker, Martha Ross, Rex Ross, Roy Foote, Lena Faye Work, Ella Rea Whaley and Sue, Donna Marett, Lina Mae Rhea, Juanita Howell, Jessie Pipkin and others who are sad and suffer. We send our sympathy and love to those who have lost loved ones. Others — Jean Derryberry, Mary Jo McCallum and Adell Hudson. Pray for peace.
In “Grand Memories” that appeared on Friday, March 16 in the Daily Journal, there was a record of the 1961 Potts Camp Cardinals boys basketball team, who won the grand slam championship. Coach Thomas Mitchell (T.M.) Stone was the famous coach. A reception was held at the BancorpSouth Center in Tupelo recently for all the players who appeared on the winning teams. From Potts Camp those attending were: Gale and Tommie Ann Goode, James Lee and Kathryn Spencer, Jimmy Siddall and wife Pat, and son of T.M. and Annie Ruth Stone, Mitch and Jeanette Stone. (Tommie Ann is the daughter of the Stones.)
During the famous game, the Cardinals hit 30 of the 35 throws in their 80-70 final Grand Slam win against Starkville. The next morning after the Cardinals became Grand Slam Champions, they were invited to the Governor’s Mansion for breakfast with Ross Barnett. They enjoyed country ham, grits, red-eye gravy, biscuits and sorghum molasses.
Names of boys on the Potts Camp Cardinals team of 1961 — The champs! Managers - James Carl Pipkin and Gary Butch Morris, Myron Cupp, Charles Shaw, Gale Goode, Ralph Clayton, Lonnie (Frog) Day, Jimmy Beckworth, Jimmy Siddall, Billy Cupp, Jimmy Bennett, Sonny Stroud, James Lee Spencer, Robert Phillips.
I’ll never forget the day this happened. I was working at the school. We were all so happy and proud of our team!
Mitchell (T.M.) and Annie R. (my friends) live in Potts Camp. He is 92. He was my classmate in 1936 at Potts Camp School and one of the first Potts Camp Cardinals. He was also a wonderful Sunday school teacher for many years at Potts Camp Methodist Church. I enjoyed that class. The new building will be named for him when it is completed.
