It is a bit nippy out there! As my father taught me: Bundle up your overcoat, let the wind blow free. Take good care of yourself, you belong to me! Eat an apple everyday, get to bed by three. Take good care of yourself, you belong to me! An old song from back in the day, by Helen Kane. The apples at Mincer’s Orchard might fill the bill, in this respect, or a good pint of apple cider, spiced up with a cinnamon stick. So that after cleaning out rain gutters for the third time, to keep winter’s ice from pulling up the shingles on the roof, there will be something to warm up your insides.
The church is looking forward to another Thanksgiving potluck in the Fellowship room on Sunday, November 18th. That is before the actual Turkey Day on Thursday the 22nd. It all seems rather early this year, so watch out and be ready, before it slips by without your paying attention! The church bulletin and Pastor Blaine from the pulpit, will keep us advised as to any updates for this event.
The November board meeting will be the second Sunday of the month, as to not interfere with our potluck. That would be the 11th. Caroling is planned for the 9th of December, at 3 o’clock, and a get-together with soup afterwards. But maybe we are getting ahead of ourselves talking about that. Let’s slow down the season and enjoy it mindfully, and not hop from one activity to another. In Houston, it was reported on the television, Christmas decorations with music piped over loudspeakers, were already up before Halloween.
As for now, the autumn decor about the church makes for a festive ambiance. We thank Paul Bennett and other elves for their thoughtful and creative endeavors.
