Angela Lilly Trio to
perform Easter celebration
The Angela Lilly Trio will perform Friday, March 29, during an Easter celebration at 7 p.m. CDT on March 31 in the United Methodist Church at 217 E. Clover St. in Hutsonville, Ill.
A free will offering will be taken during the service.
The Southern gospel music trio from Hutsonville have performed in the Wabash Valley for about 12 years.
They also have found their way into many venues in Illinois and other states in the area.
James and Angela Lilly, along with their niece Haley Young, have performed in area churches and at several fairs and festivals.
Angela Lilly’s brothers Aaron and Wesley Gray will join the Angel Lilly Trio at the Easter concert.
James and Angela’s 18-year-old son, Grayson Lilly, performs with them on guitar and plays a unique style that has turned heads to as far as Nashville, Tenn. He is one month from debuting his first album, “Guitars and Sweet Tea.”
The group recently returned from working on a sixth album, with a large portion of the songs written by Young.

THE JOY LADY: Captivating, making obedient our minds, word by word
The last part of 2 Corinthians 10:5 says, “We take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” Now come on, Apostle Paul. Capture every thought? I mean, really. Is that possible?

THE JOY LADY: Evidence of our faith is not evident when we know what to do
Sometimes bad things happen to us. That’s usually when we ask, “Why, Lord?” But I wonder, do we have the right to ask that in the bad times if we’ve never asked it during the good times?
The Joy Lady: What should we do when we get annoyed with every day events?
I confess. Sometimes I get pretty annoyed with other people. Especially when they don’t do things just as I would have them done.

The Joy Lady: Important questions we should ask ourselves every day
I recently attended a memorial service at the nursing home where my stepfather spent the last years of his life. It wasn’t a big service, there were no bands or flags or special speaker brought in. Nor was it a service where people bowed their heads in silent prayer as the names of the loved ones were read.

The Joy Lady: Um, excuse me, that’s not your parking space
We just returned home from a much-needed trip to visit my husband’s family in western Nebraska. Aside from the snowfall on Mother’s Day, and the warning about staying on the paved sidewalks at Scotts Bluff National Monument due to awakening of the prolific rattlesnakes in the area, and all that sage brush blowing across the highway, it was a great trip. Except for the parking situation.
