Tornado Hits Larry Spargamino Family

Word has just been received that the house and buildings on the five acres of the Larry Spargamino family in Guthrie, Oklahoma, were destroyed this afternoon by a tornado. Larry and Jennifer were in the storm cellar and were unharmed. They have lost their home, their vehicles, and all of their possessions. Larry is the Associate Pastor of the Southwest Radio Ministries in Oklahoma City. Join us in praising God for their safety and in prayer for the recovery of their property.

Tennessee Legislature Adjourns

The Tennessee State House and State Senate adjourned the first session of the 107th Legislature on Saturday night, May 21st. They adjourned 5 weeks earlier than last year's session and the earliest in years. It is estimated that they saved the taxpayers of Tennessee more than $ 450,000 by adjourning early! This is the first time since the War Between The States that Republicans have been in charge of both houses - and they have the Governor's office, too. The following is from Senator Stacey Campfield's blog - - and is included for your edification.

Happy Mothers' Day

To all the Mothers, we wish you a wonderful and happy Mothers' Day!

"Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates."
- Proverbs 31:10-31
