Happenings, April 18, 2022 – 23, 2022

I hope you all were blessed as much as I was by last Sunday’s Easter Service. Jurgen delivered a message that we need to keep in our hearts and minds every day. Resurrection day is the foundation of our Christian Faith. Add to that the singing was beautiful. So much enthusiasm and such beautiful voices. Praising the Lord with hymns of Praise and Thanks for the Lord’s sacrifice for each one of us. 

Scripture

Proverbs 16:31

  1. The silver-haired head is a crown of glory, If it is found in the way of righteousness.

Five tips for staying young

  1. Your mind is not old, keep developing it.
  2. Your humour is not over, keep enjoying it.
  3. Your strength is not gone, keep using it.
  4. Your opportunities have not vanished, keep pursuing them.
  5. God is not dead, keep seeking Him.

Job 12:12

  1. Wisdom belongs to the aged, and understanding to the old,” says

“You are never too old to set a new goal or dream a new dream.” C.S. Lewis
“Those who love deeply never grow old, they may die of old age, but they die young.” Ben Franklin

Remember, old folks are worth a fortune-they have silver in their hair, gold in their teeth, stones in their kidneys, lead in their feet and gas in their stomachs.

Chapel Update

I have not heard anything this last week from the contractor but the ladies gathered and after Sherilyn did a great deal of online research the committee made decisions on the kitchen appliances and they have been ordered from Merit furniture and Appliances. It will be a few weeks or months before they arrive and Merit will hold them for us until we need them.

Doug, Barb and I will be travelling to Victoria tomorrow to check out a baby grand piano to consider for the chapel. A further report will be forthcoming after we have a good look at it and consider whether it fits our needs. 

There will be a gathering in the next couple of weeks to review flooring and paint options. 

I would like to thank Charmaine R., Eleanor van K, Reeny T, Barb P. and Sherilyn V  for making what I believe is an informed decision. 

Let me know about any prayer requests.
