Li’l Bit of Branson at Brock

BROCK — This week we have an exceptionally good show planned. John Tracy’s story is one we are trying to get out. This talented man has written some wonderful songs that express our deepest desire to bring families together. Family is the one thing we can count on as the world and all of its problems constantly change around us.

In John Tracy’s new release, Break the Chain, he reminds us we need to focus on the people that are the most important to us. We can’t let the stresses of every day life-whether from the pursuit of things we think will make us happy or from merely trying to stay afloat-cause us to neglect the people in our lives that are always there for us.

In the featured song, Break the Chain, John reminds us the simplest things we do for those we love can make a big difference. More important than any gift we can buy is expressing our love by the time we spend with our families and by simply telling them how we feel. As we all know, the words we speak to each other create memories that last a lifetime. Those memories will far outlast a later forgotten gift.

Our relationship with our children changes as they get older. The special times we shared with them when they were little often get lost as the years go by. Written by John at a time when the trials of the teen years began, Little Girl encourages us not to reflect on the past as a better time, but to build a new relationship with our children that is even deeper.

In those moments when it seems that life is collapsing in on us, we have to remember that the people around us are our foundation. Make time today to let your family know how much they mean to you.

We hope to see you at our show at 7 p.m. Saturday. We are located at 7500 W. I. 20 exit 397, in the LTI building. For more information, call (817) 829-5930.

    Families and students from Weatherford Christian School gathered Monday night at the South Main Church of Christ Auditorium to learn more about the numerous missions that WCS partners with throughout their school year.

  • Greenwood VFD gifted with ceremonial bell

    For several years members of the Greenwood Volunteer Fire Department have wanted a ceremonial bell that could be used in the department’s firefighting ceremonies. A few months ago, residents Robbie and Melinda Mayes-Kelly made a donation to the department for the specific purpose of acquiring a bell. Then Enrico Barone, another resident, saw the bell at the station and offered to build a stand for it. Enrico is retired and is a skilled woodworker. He built a beautiful stand which has wheels and is mobile.
