Bitterness by Joe Barnett
Get rid of all bitterness, rage, and anger. Ephesians 4:31
In Great Expectations, Charles Dickens introduces us to a bitter old lady, Miss Havisham. She’s wearing a tattered wedding dress and has wilted flowers in her hair.
On her wedding day, the guests had come, but the bridegroom had not. At twenty minutes until nine, he’d had a letter delivered to her, saying he wasn’t going to marry her. At that very minute and hour, Miss Havisham had all the clocks in the house stopped. And she had remained dressed as she was at twenty minutes until nine the day she was jilted.
For these many years, Miss Havisham had wallowed in bitterness, wrecking relationships with all whose lives she touched.
In the backwash of mistreatment, bitterness is understandable. But resentment is defeated, or it grows. You will conquer it, or it will conquer you.
Bitterness is destroyed, or it destroys.

In the light of the latest church shootings around the country, it has been decided that the front doors will be locked 10 minutes after services start. This applies to both Wednesday and Sunday services. Someone will be present at the door to unlock it for latecomers. This is for everyone’s safety and peace of mind.

Allen and Mikey are excited to have their daughter, Carla, back in Galveston following her one and a half years in Puerta Rico. She and her fiancée, Paul Schutz, and their two puppies arrived Wednesday evening. Carla has been working with FEMA to help restore Puerto Rico from the hurricane two years ago. Now, many earthquakes are taking their toll on all the restoration work.
