Again, an extra shout out to the volunteers that are caring for our church lawn this year.
A few weeks ago, when I was mowing and weed whacking, I was thinking of all the jobs I had at home to do. (Feeling overwhelmed, a little.). As I moved under our beautiful rose window the spirit of God swept over me and replaced it with the biggest smile on my face. How blessed was I? Serving our God and caring for His house. Nothing was as important as that.
Attitude is everything.
Thank you: Carol Sybesma, Bill & Marthe Keim, Andy Miller, Mike Johnson, Angella Rueppel, Bob Hoffine, John Blanchard, Tom Scheetz, Bruce Gosling and Gib & Vicki LeRoque and Roger & Carol Olds.
The weeds are overtaking our south parking lot. If you're a "weed wonder" please see or call me. I'd like to get a group together an hour a week to socialize and pull these misplaced plants out together.
