 Live A Happier Life

Next time you wake up, instead of dreading the day ahead,
rise and shine and expect something wonderful to happen today!

When you go outside, notice people going about their lives,
and wonder to yourself what they’re thinking, and if they’re happy.

Feel the rain or wind on your face, don’t hide from it.  Isn’t it refreshing?

Smile at everyone you meet. It is a fact that people tend to
respond to the look you are wearing on your own face!

Wiggle your toes if you are bored. Be happy that you have toes to wiggle!

Be polite, and say please and thank you.
That girl taking your order at the fast food place
is a human being, too – be nice to her.

When you are eating, really slow down and enjoy every bite of what you are eating!
It’s good … well, and even if you don’t like it, isn’t it great that you have food?

Never underestimate yourself! You are always growing and learning.
Just because you didn’t succeed at something
in the past doesn’t mean you can’t get it right this time around!

Stop complaining about your life. Never take for granted all the joys and freedoms
you have. Remember those who have less. Tell everyone who is important to you how you feel about them! You do not ever want to spend your days regretting things you never told them.

And last but never least; remember that life is about love.
Give love when you can, and it will be given to you!


Give us through this New Year quietness of mind
Teach us to be patient and always to be kind.
Give us reassurance when everything goes wrong
So our faith remains unfaltering and our hope and courage strong.
And show us that in quietness we can feel Your presence near
filling us with joy and peace throughout this New Year.

SANCTUARY LIGHT: A new chart is available for your request to have a Sanctuary Light burn for your loved ones either in honor of or in memory of. This light burns for the week starting on a Saturday and ends on Friday. Requests have been very sparse so please try to consider having a light shine by your request. 

ENVELOPES:  If you know of a parishioner who did not pick up their envelopes for 2021, please see if you can deliver them if they are your neighbors or friends. Thank you.

A Year of Time. .

    …Though even thinking on the subject of time may prove discomforting, it is not a bad idea—especially at the beginning of a new year.

As we look into 2021  we look at a block of time. We see 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days, 8,760 hours, 525,600 minutes, 31,536,000 seconds. And all is a gift from God. We have done nothing to deserve it, earn it, or purchased it. Like the air we breathe, time comes to us as a part of life.

    The gift of time is not ours alone. It is given equally to each person. Rich and poor, educated and ignorant, strong and weak—every man, woman and child has the same twenty-four hours every day.

    Another important thing about time is that you cannot stop it. There is no way to slow it down, turn it off, or adjust it. Time marches on.

    And you cannot bring back time. Once it is gone, it is gone. Yesterday is lost forever. If yesterday is lost, tomorrow is uncertain. We may look ahead at a full year’s block of time, but we really have no guarantee that we will experience any of it.  Obviously, time is one of our most precious possessions. We can waste it. We can worry over it. We can spend it on ourselves. Or, as good stewards, we can invest it in the kingdom of God.

    The New Year is full of time. As the seconds tick away, will you be tossing time out the window, or will you make every minute count?
