The Beauty of Snowfall
Good Tuesday Morning to All!
Yesterday was Monday all day, causing the Monday Message to arrive a bit late! The absence of a message on Monday has provided me with an opportunity on Tuesday: the opportunity to consider the wonder and the beauty of snowfall, albeit a simple dusting. The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky proclaims the work of His hands (Psalm 19:1). On this very cold morning let us recognize that each unique snowflake declares the glory of our great God.

On Thursday we will welcome to our campus our good friends from Northeast Mississippi Community College as they partner with us in hosting the fifth annual Construction Conference. We are pleased to have each participant in this conference on the Hill, including Mike Tagert, Northern District Mississippi Transportation Commissioner.

On Friday we will welcome the members of the Executive Committee of our Board of Trustees.

Thursday evening and Saturday afternoon afford great opportunities to come out and cheer on the Toppers as they take on conference rivals Bethel and the University of Mobile. For more information on these events and on all things related to Topper athletics, check out our new sports website: Thanks go to Kevin Barefield, David Harrell, Amy Thurmond, and Danny McKenzie for their work on this impressive new resource.

It was great to have Dr. Rex Yancey with us yesterday and to hear his inspiring message on forgiveness. We look forward to hearing from our own Deena Elliott on Friday.

I close with one other expression of gratitude. In response to last Wednesday’s power outage, a number of folks sprang into to action to ensure that our students were cared for. Kudos to Joey Etheridge and the team from National; to Chef Brett, Deborah, and the MMI crew; to Dean Jack Moser, and to COO Joyce Peters for being on the ready to ensure that all needs were addressed. Thanks also to Tom Lindsey of the Tippah County Emergency Management, to Ray Hall of New Albany Light, Gas, and Water, and to Johnny Breland for responding in such a timely and efficient way.

Have a blessed week!
