As, I listen to the radio, read the paper, watch TV, or just listen in conversation, I most often am disgusted with how our world is changing. We need to keep the good going in the right direction and “stop” the bad choices from becoming a reality before our eyes! Here are a few items that bother me the most, Abortion, abusive behavior-killing others, drugs, Same sex Marriage, scams, stealing, sexual misconduct, welfare, missing persons, Divorce, mental problems, bomb threats, shootings in schools, Texting, DWI driving, etc. There are a lot of things that need to be worked on to make our country a safe and wonderful place to live in. I’ve noticed how the most love able people are being killed by people they don’t even know. How do we Educate our people to bring peace into our world and good for all? I sometimes wonder how people can live their lives wanting to do bad in our society? There has to be someway we, as citizens can teach others to do the right things in life. Wouldn’t God be pleased with His creation if we tried a little harder?
It’s that time of the year, to clean out your closets and have that garage sale! Everyone is looking for good deals so, why have all your treasures piled up, when you can try and sell some of your items and make a little cash on the side. It’s also interesting to see what sells and what doesn’t. You just never know what people are looking for now days? Baby items are popular as, the stores mark their items so ungodly high that it’s hard to afford some things when first starting out. Antiques, are also a feature folks are looking for. No matter what, people are looking for bargins on just about anything. Have a fun day garage sailing or having the sale and making a little bit extra!!
We have had some beautiful weather to enjoy and more to come!! It feels so good to see the grass turning green, the sun shine,, and for the moment no snow in sight! Though, I heard we could get a dust of some snow coming our way! It’s hard to imagine that but, we’re in Minnesota! Anything happens at any time of the day in our state. The weather we have received thus far has been a blessing. Let’s just look forward to more enjoyable weather on the way, despite a little bit of dusting along the way, if, it hits our area. Have a great day and take in the sunshine when you can!!
Wow! That is my exact words for the weather we had last Friday! The sun was out as I was traveling to my job and then, a couple hours latter, we had a snow storm! Right before my eyes, I was in complete shock! Then, the sun came back out and the snow melted. I drove home from work like nothing had even happened. Our Minnesota weather really has a mind of it’s own. They call it, “Mother Nature.” I, sometimes wonder what people think when they visit our state and all this mixed-up weather happens, to a point you can’t comprehend what’s going to be the outcome of your day! It’s hard to plan anything as, you don’t know if it’s going to snow, hail, wind, rain, sleet, or the sun is going to shine. Always remember to have a back-up plan to have a shelter of some kind when planning events this summer. You just never know how your day is going to turn out in good ole Minnesota!!!
On Saturday, April 4th, the Winsted Lions assembled 33 Easter baskets to give to people less fortunate. The baskets consisted of assorted fruit and cheese. Many elderly folks enjoy receiving this type of gift at Easter time. The Winsted Lions extend out into the community to help others less fortunate then themselves! We focus on making people happy and bring a smile to their face. I, think we did a great job this year again!!!
Easter is a celebration to acknowledge every year! This time of the year folks are out shopping for all the assorted candies, eggs to be dyed, and all the frilly dresses accompanied by a matching hat. Some focus on the Easter Bunny and all the sparkles that surround what the Bunny all does. The reality that sparks Easter should be, that Jesus died for us all because, He loved us! We should all turn our heads in that direction of the church and truly, “think” about what was really done at the Easter celebration! Christmas and Easter are like bookends. Christmas is the birth of Jesus and Easter is the end of His life on earth. These two celebrations bring forth so much love, of a person that walked the dusty gravel roads to proclaim the gospel and to make us more like Him! We simply need to keep Him in our hearts all year long and be a little bit like Him in our walk in life!!
A few more days and we can say “Good Bye” to Winter! We have had enough snow, ice, sleet, cold weather, and wind! It’s time to put that smile back on our face and put the coat, boots and mittens away for awhile! The sun has been treating us good lately and warming things up a little for us. Soon, the birds will start chirping, while flying in all directions to get our attention. It’s time to inhale the wonderful fresh air. Take advantage of all the sunshine we get, till we flip into Summer. Enjoy your day to the fullest!!!
