BRIAN PEACOCK Nov. 11, 1985 - Jan. 21, 2016 Brian Peacock, age 30, passed away January 21, 2016. He was born November 11, 1985 in Milton, FL to Dar- rel Eddie Hobbs, Jr. and Barba- ra Peacock Thomas. Brian en- joyed work- ing on the family farm and in his spare time he loved to fish. Brian was an excellent mechanic and used that gift to help family and friends with their cars and trucks.

"Is your God a great God or a lit- tle God?" asked a well-known skep- tic of an elderly gentleman known for his deep love of God. "Well," he said after a moment's thought, "He's both. He's go great that the heavens cannot contain him, and He's so little that He can live within my heart!" This is the identical way that the writer of Psalm 46 spoke of his God: "The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress." We often have questions about God's involvement in our everyday affairs and concerns. "Are my per- sonal problems, even though they are small and only matter to me, important to Him? When I have the flu and feel horrible, does it makes any difference to Him? What about the threat of violence, terrorism, children being gunned down at school? What about the preacher being tried in Iran as a heretic? What about the war in Afghanistan? "The Lord who is Almighty," said the Psalmist, "is with us" - not may be or should be or will be- but is with us this very moment. Wherever we are - He is. From our sn allest need to our greatest problem He is with us and is always ready, willing and able to do His will for us and through us. Yet, there is more: He is not only with us, but He is our fortress. When this Psalm was written, a fortress was a place of security and safety. It was built on an isolated, elevated place to provide protection from the enemy. It was the place to go if an enemy was approaching. What powerful thoughts: Our God is an Almighty God who cares for each of us and protects us from any threat in life. Vizit us at SowerMini I III II I I ii I II IIIII " IIH I ill II I
