Thankful Hearts
Good Day!

 
I hope everyone enjoyed a great time with friends and family and had plenty of turkey and dressing over the holiday!  Larry, Sam, and I enjoyed counting our blessings and anticipating the season of Advent.
 
To the many supporters who have already contributed to the Annual Fund, we are so very grateful!  Your contributions have made an immediate impact on the work of the College.  May God bless you for your generosity and for your ongoing support of BMC.
 
Congratulations to Beverly Moffitt for the wonderful article in Friday’s Daily Journal which chronicled her career and highlighted her love for BMC.  Beverly, we are so glad that you are here!
 
Our hearts are saddened this day by the passing of Hilda Hill.  Mrs. Hill, a dynamic member of the class of 1951, distinguished herself through her professional career as an educator in North Mississippi and served as Dean of Students at Blue Mountain College.  She received an honorary doctorate from the College in 2011.  Our prayers go out to the members of Mrs. Hill’s family.
 
Please pray for faculty and students this week as we enter the last week of class before final exams.   Undoubtedly, many papers and projects will be written and graded this week.  Pray for stamina and focus for all to finish strong.
 
Pray for me on Saturday as I address the WMU at New Baptist in Myrtle.
 
This Thursday evening at 4:30 faculty and staff, along with their immediate family members, are invited to gather for hot chocolate and cookies before posing for a Christmas photo in the Modena Lowrey Berry auditorium.  At 6:00 we will proceed to Lowrey Memorial for a time of lessons and carols in preparation for the Christmas season.
 
Our basketball teams will be traveling to play Morthland College today.  The men will play at home against Life on Thursday at 7:00.  Both teams will make their last home stand before the holiday on Saturday against Huntingdon and Dillard.
 
Many thanks to Tommy Peters and all the crew responsible for making the campus so beautiful for Christmas.  If you haven’t been on campus lately, we invite you to come by and enjoy the holiday décor.
 
Anyone in need of furniture, desks, tables, etc. will want to check out the “warehouse” sale this Saturday at the education building from 7:00 until noon.
 
May God’s blessings be yours today.
