Psalm 23 King James Version (KJV) 23 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

The Legend of the Starfish
A vacationing businessman was walking along a beach when he saw a young boy.

Along the shore were many starfish that had been washed up by the tide and were sure to die before the tide returned.

The boy walked slowly along the shore and occasionally reached down and tossed the beached starfish back into the ocean.

The businessman, hoping to teach the boy a little lesson in common sense, walked up to the boy and said, "I have been watching what you are doing, son. You have a good heart, and I know you mean well, but do you realize how many beaches there are around here and how many starfish are dying on every beach every day. Surely such an industrious and kind hearted boy such as yourself could find something better to do with your time. Do you really think that what you are doing is going to make a difference?"

The boy looked up at the man, and then he looked down at a starfish by his feet. He picked up the starfish, and as he gently tossed it back into the ocean, he said, "It makes a difference to that one."

  • "ROGER WINN"
    Roger was a resident of Brookdale Assisted Living and Retirement Community in Danville, Virginia, he now lives in Richmond Virginia. His birthdate is July 14, 1920. Roger's membership at Axton Baptist Church began during the month of October in 1929 and is the longest of any member at the present time.






    "During the month of January, 2017 the following improvements and repairs were made to the Sanctuary of Axton Baptist Church. The entry doors, doors to the sanctuary, pews, communion table, two chairs and pulpit were refinished, the carpet was replaced and the two front pews were moved to the balcony to replace the chairs. We are thankful that God has blest the Church to be able to make these changes."

    "THE SWEETEST VERSE"
    The old saint was not far from the pearly gates when his minister came to see him, as he had done many times. Looking terderly down on him, he said, "I'm not going to weary you now, but I"ll read to you the sweetest verse in the Bible, and then we'll have prayer together."
    He then opened his pocket Testament at the fourteenth chapter of John's Gospel, and read: "In my Father's house are many mansions: If it were not so I would have told you," and was closing the book and kneeling in prayer, when the dying man stretched out a delaying hand, and whispered, "no, that isn't the sweetest verse, read on."
    So the minister read, "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also." At that a seraphic smile spread over the face of the dying saint, "that's it," he whispered. "That's the sweetest verse. It is not the mansions: it is Himself I want."
