I just gathered a bouquetof “Easter Flowers” to brighten a dreary sad day. I like to start with something cheerful, but I feel sad as a couple of our dear friends have gone to be with their Lord in the past few days. Both have been in poor health for quite some time. I paid my respects at the funeral home Sunday afternoon to the family of Lucille B. Hager, who lived to the ripe old age of 97 years. It always was a joy to be with Mrs. Hager, for she would soon have you laughing by telling some funny incident that happened. She was a Christian and an avid quilt maker and quilter.
I learned that a fellow church member, Ray Golden, had passed on Monday evening at a Louisville Hospital after an extended illness. Brother Joe Bennett filled the pulpit for Brother Charley Sunday, as Brother Charley had gone to be with Mr. Golden and his family when life support was removed. Our sincere sympathy goes out to these families, as well as to the many others who have lost loved ones.
CHURCH NEWS. The World Day of Prayer was held Friday at College Heights United Methodist Church with approximately 50 in attendance for the worship service. Highlights included, scripture, English and Spanish music, the life experiences, Nora Sweat, singing the Lord’s Prayer, the speaker, Wanda Dobbins, former missionary to Chile and much more. Thanks to Pastor Charley at the controls enabling all to hear every word and to the women of College Heights United Methodist Church for the food served and the fellowship.
The theme of the program was “How many loaves have you?” Mary Hall was the speaker who told of how the women of south Chile stepped up to help their men at Lora in their struggle, after they were laid off and mines were closed, by helping to make the typical “miners bread” cooked in community ovens.
Deaconess Darlene Di-Domineck has written the celebration for “Women’s History Month, United Methodist Women Style” that will be used for the March 17t United Methodist Women meeting in Room 14. All will want to read Hebrews 12: 1-17 before hand.
A family whose children attend the Jesus Seekers SS class at College Heights United Methodist Church are in need of furniture for their rental house. They need several important items so if you have something you wish to donate, please call Ann Davis at 312-0376.
Sunday afternoon a large crowd attended the baby shower given at the church for Andrea and Joe Bennett. They received many useful gifts for which sincere thanks were expressed. Delicious refreshments were served.
ORGANIZATION NEWS. We attended the Stephensburg Lodge No. 212 fish fry Friday evening. I enjoyed a fish sandwich and Floyd got the shrimp, as I think many others did also. The Lodge held its regular monthly meeting Saturday evening, but even though he never likes to miss, Floyd didn’t feel well enough to attend.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY. “Until you accept total responsibility — no matter what — you will not be able to put plans into place to accomplish your goals.” — David Cottrell.
HELPFUL HINT. When starting to use a new package of coffee filters with the fluted edges, I turn the whole group inside out. This loosens the filters until it is much easier to get just one to use.
