Christi Bryant, one of our dedicated employees, has moved to Kentucky. Before leaving, she sent in four of her favorite scriptures. While we hate to lose Christi, we wish her the very best in her new home. She has been a blessing to all of us at Beasley Allen and she will be missed.
For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Ed and Sally Massey, who live in Washington County, but work in Mobile, have been good friends of ours for a very long time. Sara and I met them when I was managing the campaign of Jim Allen in his successful bid for the U.S. Senate. Ed was instrumental in helping to carry Mobile County for Jim Allen, who went on to be a great U.S. Senator. As they say back in my hometown of Clayton, the Massey’s “are good folks.” Ed, a tremendous lawyer practicing in Mobile, is well-respected by his peers. Sally sent in one of her life verses for this issue and says these verses have provided comfort for her family over the years.
Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield not meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.
Ed also furnished Proverbs 3:5-6 for this issue and says those verses are his favorite. The Washington County native is also one of the biggest Crimson Tide football followers in the country. Over the years, I have learned to tolerate that.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5- 6
Willa Carpenter, who serves as our Human Resources Liaison, furnished the following verse:
Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another.
Corky Hawthorne, a lawyer from Montgomery, and another good friend, sent in a verse for this issue. Corky sends our firm a daily prayer which is greatly appreciated.
For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit and in much assurance, as you know what kind of men we were among you for your sake.
1 Thes 1:5
Dr. Joe Elrod came by the office last month and we had a very good visit. Joe was recently featured in an article by one of my favorite reporters, Al Benn, with the Montgomery Advertiser. Before he left the office, Joe furnished a verse for this issue.
Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Charles Myrick, one of our hard-working employees, furnished the following verse, which he says “tells it all.”
But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God. (NIV)
Lisa Temple, who is with an alarm company in Montgomery, Silent Sentry, sent in her favorite verse. Lisa is a law school graduate and is a multi-talented person. More importantly, she is a strong Christian.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Krystin McHenry sent in a verse for this issue. This was the favorite verse of her very good friend, Mallory Garmon, who was killed in a motor vehicle accident on October 17, 2010. Four months later to the day, February 17th, Krystin was injured in an accident, but has made a good recovery. Krystin is the daughter of Major Mark McHenry, who is with the Alabama Department of Public Safety.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Pam Sexton sent in her favorite verse for this issue. You may recall that Pam’s husband Tom had furnished a verse for a previous issue. Tom is the president of Pickwick Antiques, Inc. Pam is a school teacher in Montgomery, and a good one, who also helps out at Pickwick when needed. She is a very talented decorator and could do that full time if she didn’t love being a teacher.
I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;
Betty Baggott, who does a Bible study for our firm, sent in a verse that some of our political friends should read. Betty is a tremendous teacher and is in great demand as a motivational speaker. Her husband Bob, who died a few years back, was a Baptist preacher. He also served as Chaplain of the Auburn Tigers when his good friend Pat Dye was coach.
For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Finally, Laurice Kern, a long-time member of St. James United Methodist Church, gave me a verse for this issue. Laurice worked for Paul Hubbert at AEA for a long time. When she retired, Laurice worked part time at Pickwick Antiques. Then she retired again.
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
