  It is good to have a few words from Sunday*s sermon float through my
mind throughout the week.  Patience held my attention Sunday as Blaine
spoke of the fruits of the spirit.  And other words: love, joy, grace,
and forgiveness.  Though much of the details of the sermon have fallen
into the black whole of forgetfulness (not that the stories and messages
were unimportant and uninteresting, but my memory for sermons has always
been poor), happily particular words addressed recently from Galatians
stuck in my brain during the week, when many emotions and problems
pestered me.  Thank goodness.  It is tempting to fall back on other
words like anger, revenge, or spitefulness, but then the feelings and
issues get darker and spiral downward.  Thinking back to patience,
grace, joy and love, I sense light, hope and resolution (hugs, instead
of  *%&#).
* So, you might figure, after this digression (or sidebar),that not much
of importance happened during the past board meeting, though we did talk
a lot.  Jerry mentioned that the cost of the new well was reasonable,
and Lynn said it was a good job.  Yea!  Barb thought we had a good crew
at the Rodeo stand.  We discussed another congregational outing to El
Portal, though nothing was resolved as to a date.  Harvest time,
birthday celebration, who will be there, who will wear the famous
sombrero? etc.  The Popcorn Day menu was also subject of much quibbling
back and forth.  So there you have it.
* Super big thank you to all of the gardeners who have been sharing the
fruits of your labors!  It is such a gift, especially to those of us who
are not handy with the trowel, seed packet or other necessities. Such
delicious goodies!
