1lIE O!tiO COUNTY TIMES, HARTFORD KENTUCKY, APRIL 7, 1977 4 { Liberty United Methodist McHenry Baptist Green River Baptist New Panther Creek An Easter sunrise service will be held at the Liberty United Methodist Church April 10 at 5:30 a.m. Break- fast cooked over an open fire will be served following the service. By Donald E. Wildmon A four letter word Occasionally one comes across a story that speaks so loudly. There are as many stories as there are people, but they don't all come to the public's notice. One did recently. I will let the person tell it in his own words. "Having suffered a traumatic experience in childhood, I have always had an abhorrence of funerals and dead people," the writer said. "When my dad died I flew back East for the services. As I viewed his cold, lifeless body in the casket, I felt nothing. That inanimate figure bore no relationship to the Pop who had always been so happy-go-lucky and full of life. "His strengths were also his weaknesses. His carefree, devil-may- care attitude made life a constant struggle for Morn. Pop was a traveling salesman but he was much better at traveling than he was at selling. In death, as in life, he left stacks of unpaid bills. "When the moment came to close the casket, my heart dropped as I saw Morn lean over and kiss him. Surely she didn't expect me to do that I Then I heard her whisper in his ear as she had done countless times before, when he had left for trips: 'Bye, Pops. rll be seeing you.' She was sending him off on his final journey -- with the promise that she would join him." The writer concluded with these words: "That gesture was a lifetime of education for me. It told me more about Mother's love for Dad than anything I had witnessed in all my years at home. I would not have missed it for the world." There are a lot of folks in this old world who carry signs and shout slogans of love. They get the Revival services will be held at the Fordsville Baptist Church April 10-17, beginning at 7 p.m. nightly. The evangelist will be Rev. Wallace Morris. Special music will be presented each night. Everyone is invited. The McHenry Baptist Church will be having their sunrise services at the Render Cemetery, Sunday April 10, at 5:15 a.m. There will also be special singing. Everyone is welcome. headlines. And many times few of them know little of what they shout. There are others who practice day in and day out what the signs and shouts say. Love causes a person to do many things, nearly all good. Perhaps those who wish to have "trial marriages" could learn something from the mother and wife mentioned above. Seems as though many of the modern folk have forgotten the "for better or for worse" in the marriage vows. We have made a terrible mistake in judgment in our country. It is either the elite of society or the rags of the radicals who get the spotlight when love and marriage are mentioned. Perhaps it would help a little to shine a flashlight on people like Morn. For it is that type person who keeps our country together. Those who stick it out through thick and thin. Those who take seriously the vows they take. Those who go on living and loving day in and day out without anybody shouting any "hoorahs" for them. Yes, it is the people whose love is genuine enough to. carry them over the rough parts that we are in- debted to. Love is a four letter word -- and it covers a multitude of sins and shortcomings. g at The Horse Branch Baptist Church will be showing a film Thursday, April 7, at 7:30 p.m. The title of the film is "Pay Day Someday", Sunrise services will be conducted in the shadow of three crosses at the Green River Baptist Church in Cromwell, at 5:30 a.m. Sunday April 10.
