We are in full swing with our North Blendon CRC 100th anniversary. We had a potluck/talent program this past Saturday night with 180 people attending. We had two of our former pastors and their wives who were able to join us. What delicious food we had. Our Talent Program went very well with the young to the old participating. What a good time everyone had! Yesterday (sunday) we had two of our former pastors preach with coffee/fellowship following the worship service. Many former members were in attendance. It was so good to see everyone again. This Tuesday we have Community Night with a lot planned. (cake/ice cream afterwards.)
I bent to brush my teeth last Friday morning and I couldn't stand up straight when I was finished. I came very close to fainting I had so much pain. I hung on to the counter and then the walls and finally made it to a chair so I could sit down. Fortunately my husband was home. I could not move without terrible pain in my lower back. I put ice packs on my back the rest of the day. I have a perscription for vicadin for the pain. I could sit and I could lay without much pain. By Sunday morning I was doing some better. I have a few busy weeks ahead of me with the churches 100th anniversary celebration coming up. Hopefully this pain will be cleared up by then. How quickly your busy life can be put on hold. My husband is taking good care of everything around here. I'm not used to having people wait on me so please pray for patience for me as well as complete healing. Thank you in advance. God is good.
How to Clean the House: 1. Open a new file in your computer. 2. Name it "Housework" 3. Send it to the RECYCLE BIN. 4. Empty your RECYCLE BIN. 5. Your PC will ask you "are you sure you want to delete Housework permanently? 6. Calmly answer "yes" and press mouse button firmly... 7. Feel better? Works for me!!
Heres a good one -------- I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape so I got my doctors permission to join a fitness club and start exercising. I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour, but, by the time I got my leotards on the class was over.
Yesterday I put a picture of the 100th anniversary quilt on my blog. I would like to tell you a little bit about this quilt.
Each family was given a plain square of material so they could make a square for the quilt. Some did embroidery, some brought it to a shop who did it for them, some painted their square, some made a regular quilt square etc. so we had a wide variety of different squares to work with.
A group of ladies got together to sew the squares together. We have a few experienced quilters in our church so that helped a lot. After we had the quilt finished we took it to a lady for the quilting. She quilted each square and did a great job. She would not take any money for doing it but requested we make diapers for a mission she helps support. So we bought lots of flannel and we are busy making diapers.
Something that I noticed while making the quilt was how many different squares there were and yet how well they all went together and how they complimented each other. It reminded me how we, as the body of Christ, are different from one another yet we are one in Christ. We all have different gifts which we bring to a church and we all compliment each other in the process.
