We will never forget her For she was so kind You could ask her anything But she didn't mind. That night we were all dreary That night was so long It was so quiet You couldn't sing a song You couldn't walk, you couldn't talk, You couldn't see, but you could cry That night when she left us We didn't say "goodbye." You might not even know Joyce But if you do, you know That somehow you feel her presence. You feel her warm glow! Joyce Taylor, a Clarendon 8th grader before having to transfer to Lakeview this year, died in a car wreck last Tuesday night. When she was in school here, Joyce was an alternate cheerleader and a guard on the basketball team. She was friendly; she was well liked; she'll be missed. Started by the 8th graders and "finished" by the stu- dents, teachers, and staff of Clarendon Junior High and Elementary, over $200 was collected for the Taylor family.

Leeder, Pastor of the AssemblyofGodChurch in Clarendon, has announced that Rusty Glpson will begin Revial services at the church Sunday, March 25th. Rev.

P astor Leeder extends a cor- dial invitation to the public. Services will start each night at 7 p.m. Week nights usual hours on Sunday, and 6: 30Snn- day night. A basic premise of the Christian faith is that everything started out good. God made our world and everything in it and called it good. God made man and made him good. Now, you and I know from experience, from whatwe hear and see, that everything in our world isn't good.Something happened. Something went wrong. What happened? I was riding down the street of a large city one day with my little four year-old girl. She saw standing on the street corner what seemed to her little mind to be some pretty low-downlooking charact- ers. She said, "Daddy, they looks mean. What made them mean, Daddy? Oh, Daddy, I know. They gots mean by them- selves didn't they?" From the mouth of a child comes wis- dom said the ancients. God made everything and everyone basically good, but we are always messing up God's perfect order. Webster' s dictionary defines good as "something conform- ing to the moral order of the universe." That is a good the- ological definition also. That makes bad and wrong that which does not conform to the moral order of the universe. Something is out of order. When wrong or bad is done, most often someone is out of order. Most of the wrong in our world has a manor menatits roots. Something is wrong with men. It is hard for a man to be good. It is easier for him to be wrong. Man is out of order and does not conform to the moral order of the universe. Something is wrong with man's nature. Goodness is a Godly characteristic. The ability to be good and do good comes from God. Goodness is one of those qualities of the spritual life of man. No man within himself is good enough for God, or even good enough to do good. When a person does good, something has tugged at that high- er quality within him. It takes God working in a man's life to change his nature. Only God can change the man whose basic tendenc is to do wrong to a nature whose basic ten- dericy is to:"cl) d. he Apostle Paul calls goodness one of the fruits of a life lived for God, a resuR of a soul in harmony with God's moiai order of things. So, you can't get good by yourself. You will have to have God's help to make yourself good; you wil have to have God's assistance to helpyou live good; and yo@ need Gtyd's aid to help you do good. Where do we start?Startwlthyourself, your own soul. Ask God to help you be good, and then, to do good. Put yourself in a good environment. Attend the churchof your choice regu- larly. Read your Bible and learn to pray. Srt being kind to those around you. Go out ofyourway for somepne without complaining about it. Learn to love your neighbor as yourself. ARer all, that is the Golden Rule. If all of us lived R, our lives would conform to the moral order of God. Let GOd make you good; then, you can do good. Being good and doing good as a continuous, natural, habit of life, requires a change in your nature. Only God can do that for you. Why not ask him to do it. We can use a whole lot of goodness in this old world. Our Best Selection Ever.... .......... Our showroom iscomplete. We have a good selection of new cars, with many more arriving daily.
