Pale pink blossoms proclaim the newness of life returning to dormant branches. Spring sunshine reflects on the white pillars of the church. Joy and gladness abounds as earth prepares to celebrate the Easter season. Yet, somewhere hearts are heavy. Pain can make us blind to the beauty of spring. Bird songs torment minds dulled with grief. What message can the Holy Day bring them? In the darkest hour of the first Good Friday, Jesus, deserted by His followers, rejected by those He came to save, tortured and suffering, said, "Father, into Thy hands I commend my spirit." Follow His example this Easter. Whatever the situation, however bleak the outlook-commend your spirit, your very self to God. Your load will be lightened, your being restored. Your church is an open door which calls you to the joyous realization of God's love as an unassailable source of strength in your life. / Scriptures Selected by The American Bible Society Copyright 1999, Keister-Williams Newspaper Services, P O Box 8005, Charlottesville, VA 22906 876-0604 Charles Town 725-6600 Hilldale Shopping Center (304)725-2057 perboard Papcrboard Products From Recycled Fibers Halltown Phone: 725-2215 FORD'MERCURY, CHRYSLER PLYMOUTH,DODGE 100 South West Street, Charles Town 725-7031 G L'~ Formerly known as lh rv ca e I ae 13041"r/5.01115 or I PRESCRIPTIONS MEDICAL SUPPLIES 201 South Preston Street Ranson, W.Va. 725-6533 L!~" x~'m',@BR~U" Route 340 Between Charles Town & Berryville *Home Cooking *Homemade Pies Phone: 725-4348 CHARLES TOWN CHURCH OF CHRIST At the Charles Town Church of Christ, located on the Country Club Road, the Rev.
