GRACE BAPTIST CHURCH-Huffman Hollow, Mill Creek Road, Lebanon, Sunday School 10 Two close calls the same I remember when I was about 12 years old, my dad and our landlord was need- ing some nails to repair the barn, so they sent me to the store. It was a good dis- tance to walk. But since it was closer to go through the field than it was to walk the road, I chose to take the field. But out of nowhere came up a quick storm, mainly wind. And wind blew harder and harder. Then I found myself walking backwards because the wind was so strong I couldn't go for- ward. And I seen it was going to pick me up so I laid down on the ground, got my hands a hold of two bunches of grass and laid there till that storm went on by. It was very quick. I went on to the store, got the nails and started back. I chose that time just to walk the road. After com- ing a little ways, I heard a noise behind me and I looked back and it was a vicious looking dog. And each time I looked back, he was gaining on me. He was acting very strange. He was going from one side of the road to the other, snapping at every- thing, weed or whatever he saw and slobbering real bad. Well, I picked up speed before he overtook me and ran down to the landlord's house and told a.m.; worship 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Wed. Youth Night 7 p.m. Pastor Don Bush.

Ply:me:: 85SOI him there was a bad dog up there in the road and what he was doing. So he got his rifle, went up to the road, killed the dog. They called for someone who come and took him off and checked him and found out that he had rabies. Well, that was a pretty close call and if I hadn't been a pret- ty fast runner, he would have probably overtaken me. I would probably wound up dying with rabies. However, in the next couple of weeks, I think 2 or 3 of the farmers in that area lost their live- stock with the rabies where the dog had bit their day cattle and spread that dis- ease. Well, I don't believe in predestination, only in the foreknowledge of God. But looking back, over my life from my youth up, I remember the hundreds of times that there has been only one step between me and death, that God forknew that there would be a time that I would be able to try to win someone to Christ or help somebody along the way or just speak a word that might bring a smile to someone's face that was having a worse day than I was having that day. That's why I do the "Topics of Truth." Clinch River Farmers Market Saturday 10 am - 12 pm The Farmers Market will be open Saturday.
