Beautiful Weather!!

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!!

Minnesota weather!!

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!!!

The Winsted Lions make Easter Baskets!

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, a celebration to acknowledge !

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!!

We’re almost into Spring!!!

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!!!

The weather is looking good!!!

We are finally getting some good weather and loving it!!!  The roads are decent to drive on, not having to slow down and watch for slick ice or a foot of snow to drive threw!  The sun has been shining and giving us something to smile about.  Everyday, this week the temperature is going to go up, till it hit’s 58 degrees.  We are all looking forward to the melting of the snow and the green grass appearing again!  It won’t be long and we will all be grilling and sitting in our lawn chairs relaxing.  I just got done washing my car, with hopes it will stay clean for a tiny bit.  Two more weeks and Spring will be here, along with the Easter Bunny so, let’s all keep our chin up and hope there isn’t anymore of that four letter word, “SNOW” within our area till next Fall!!  Enjoy, the beautiful weather and let the sun shine in!!!

Eagle Scout Ceremony!

I just attended an Eagle Scout Ceremony for, Liam Fury, from Winsted.  He had several display boards, picture albums, an array of metal pins of achievements, sash, the wooden cars for their derby race, and many other momentous earnings.  While looking at all of his achievements, I simply got to admit, I got exhausted, at what he had all done to earn his award!  Many scouts were their and their Boy Scout Leaders, family and friends.  There was a wonderful turnout for his ceremony.  The effort it takes, to finally get that Eagle Scout Award is beyond ones imagination!  Yet, everyday, he will be using these skills to the fullest.  How, what was taught, will remain with in him.  That’s simply wonderful and an attribute to our world around us!!  Eagle Scouts advance faster on job resumes, for they are known to be dependable and get things done and are filled with honesty!  To bad, every student doesn’t have such training from K-12 grade.  We would have better students and less on drugs and alcohol.  Something to think about!!!
