the days just zoom by between working 3 days, food pantry 2x a month, visiting my friend and everything else that's thrown in between. but that's a good thing. i like being busy, i just don't like that the year is going by way too fast.
anyway, i found some time to play ...
our church "adopted" the local elementary school - meaning
we will help the teachers with whatever they may need for the kids.
the principal decided that she would like to celebrate the elementary teachers
birthday but only once a month. this is november's card.
well, off to work today. i'm really enjoying it. my "boss" is great and funny. i guess GOD has HIS reasons for giving me the job. all is good.
TODAY'S WORDS OF WISDOM..... Holy Humor
People want the front of the bus, the back of the church, and the center of
Sunday after church, a Mom asked her very young daughter what the lesson was about.
The daughter answered, "Don't be scared, you'll get your quilt."
Needless to say, the Mom was perplexed. Later in the day, the pastor stopped by for tea and the Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school lesson was about.
He said "Be not afraid, thy comforter is coming."
The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sick and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted to know what to play.
"Here's a copy of the service," he said
impatiently. "But, you'll have to think of something to play after I make the announcement about the finances."
During the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up."
At that moment, the substitute organist played "The Star Spangled Banner."
And that is how the substitute became the regular organist!
