Miles I see the sun come o'er the hill, To bring another day. The darkness of the night has gone; And cheer has made it's way. The night that put the world to sleep Could not resist the sun; When day awoke with sound of joy The idle night was done. The rays of light creep in the shade, Where darkness tries to hide; and drives the little demons out, To prove that night has died. I hear the birds, with song of joy, sing out their praise to all; With tidings of a new-born day; From tree to tree they call. The mockingbird is in the tree, With its romantic song; Its music rings from hill to hilt- Makes peace where all was wrong. The robin sings its song of praise, To greet the morning sun; And help the world to understand A new day has begun. All creatures glorify the day. But those who prowl at night, Who seen afraid to show themselves When darkness turns to light.

Griffith Creek Mission News The Glenna Harris Mission Soci- ety of the Griffith Creek Baptist Church, Alderson, recently held their regular monthly: meeting. President Kathy Harris turned the services over to Phyliss Harris who gave de- votions. She read scripture from Proverbs 31. Using the thought of Mothers Day for the month of May as her theme. "Christian mothers are the world's greatest assets and some are to be very thankful for," Mrs Harris said. Hope Afiff read a poem entitled "Warm Breezes Warm Memories" commenting upon the life of mothers in the early 1900's. She said mothers then had all the work to do from dawn to dusk but they had time for husband, children and neighbors. The "Woman of the Bible" studied this month was Miriam -- a leader who overestimated herself (Exodus 15:19-21 and Numbers 12:1-5). Kathy Harris taught the lesson be- ginning with a quiz to see howmuch the ladies already knew about Moses' sister Miriam. A time of dis- cussion and comments helped each one to get a better idea of this Bible character so important to God's cho- sen people. Sunshine cards were signed and general business taken care of. The June meeting will be a Senior Tea for the two young ladies graduating from the church. Hope Aliff and An- nie Lawrence wil} be in charge of decoration June 14 at 12:30 p.m. Karen Ennis served refreshments to Madeline Burns, Mary Dodd, Annie Lawrence, Kathy Harris, Phyliss Harris and Trish. By Helen W. Searle Today's feast day, the Visitation, commemorates the Blessed Virgin Mary's visit to Saint Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist. As related in the Gospels, when the Angel Gabriel told Mary that she would become the mother of Jesus, she also learned that her aged cousin Elizabeth was expecting a child in three months time. Shortly after this occurance Mary left for her cousin's hometown in the hill coun- try of Judah. This six mile journey to the west of Jerusalem was a full day's trip during this period in his- tory. Only Mary knew how very im- portant it was for her to spend this time helping Elizabeth before her child was born. The meeting of the two women, as we learn from Elizabeth's greeting, is refered to as joyous; Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. This sentence follows the saluta- tion, Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with thee, from the Hail Mary Prayer. Principally, this prayer is an Angelic Salutation whereas the prayer of Christ is the Our Father. Together both prayers make up the prayer called the Rosary. These prayers were always recited by the apostles to help us remember where we are, and what we are about, the idea of a prayer chain, now called ONE WAY ONLY When John Hartford appears Friday June 8 at 8 o'clock for the third annual ceverte River Festival it may well be firsts.
