Hello from our home to your home. Our home staff is meeting each day with zeal and harmony. Each day is very busy and we have a daily plan well thought out and published on our bulletin board. Once in a while some unexpected happening will cause a shift in activities and we are advised over the loud speaker.
This is Saturday and we miss many of our staff, but they must have some time for family obligations as all other working people must.
My family will be going to Wichita, Kansas over this coming weekend to the Lirley family reunion to enjoy seeing those we only see once a year, a very enjoyable time! Clyde, who passed way in 1995 only has two sisters left out of 10 children, Pat and Opal and they live in Kansas. The one who lived in Colorado, Alice May, died last year after the reunion. She certainly will be missed. She was 91, the same age as I am. When Clyde and I married in December 1937, he took me to Colorado and that’s when I met them all, the whole family. My! How time does fly! And things change!
I have finished two paintings for our Golden Age Games to be held this fall. One theme is “space”. It is hard to paint a picture respresenting “space”. Perhaps one of mine will be appropriate.
Rain showers recently have kept us inside a lot lately, but our new gazebo gives us a place to dart into in case of a quick shower.
Our worship service this Sunday was led by the Skyline Church with music and guitars and a message by Pastor Bobby Page.
The message was so appropriate for us at our age and time of life. He emphasized the importance of our telling the young generation of God’s times of blessings in our lives, actually miracles of blessings and, if we have been Christians for very many years, there have been some miracles, if we can only recognize them.
Sunday morning Larry Moore was with us for Sunday School and Bible Study with good discussions among those present. After worship there was much mixing and mingling and visiting through the building.
Our prayers and sympathy go out to the family of Rachel Graham, who lost her father, Richard Mitchell. Rachel works the evening shift and she is very much loved by everyone.
Our prayers and sympathy also go out to the family of Gary Frickle.
Congratulations to Linda Hotchkiss on getting to go home.
Please remember to put our 29th Annual 4th of July Celebration on your calander. God Bless You From Heart of the Ozarks Healthcare Center in Ava, MO.
