The Adams County Record Wednesday, October 24, 2012 Silver & Gold The craft fair is coming Once more here we are doing what I don't do best. But at least I make an effort, right? Wow, the rain is a blessing, and it makes me want to crawl into a warm blanket with a cup of hot chocolate. Molliette is trying to get on my lap and help me type. I wish you could have seen Abby early this morning, she had crawled up under the blanket with her head on the pillow and was fast asleep. "Ihese are two of my doxies, spoiled rotten. But I sure love them. This morning we held a Super Saturday at church and made. some handicraft stuff for the holidays. We didn't have a lot of people, but had a good time. Patty helped us make 3 Christmas cards. Quite pretty if I do say so myself. We learned how to make some pretty pillowcases and table runners, and made some cute cans for Halloween. Let me tell you, give us ladies a hammer, nails and some glue and we are off to the races. Now for the news of the senior center. May I make a suggestion to whomever decimated our pumpkins outside the center? Please replace them. I'm sure you could find something else to do for fun. We don't have a lot of money and we don't ask for much, but that was just wrong on so many levels. Coming up is Bingo on Friday Oct 26th. We will be making popcorn balls on Thursday the 25th at 2:00 PM. I always have fun doing the balls. Our craft fair is Saturday, October 27% starting at 9:00 AM. We will be serving lunch for $5.00. Have you purchased your tickets for the lap robe? Norah would be very happy to sell you some. We had a great turnout for lunch on Wednesday; all our tables were full. I would like to see that more often. We have some great lunches. We could use some baked goods if you are in the mood to bake and donate to the senior center. Our senior bus will be going to Ontario on the first of November. It leaves the center at 8:30am. Price is $7.50, and bring money for lunch. I would like to ask if anyone out there would be interested in volunteering on Friday for about an hour after lunch to break down our recyclables. I'm afraid our back room gets pretty cramped by the end of the week. Just talk to Page 11 By Shirley Wilson Edith. I would like to take a moment to thank all the seniors who volunteer at the center. We would have a hard time keeping it going without you. Norah has been a great help keeping us in line! Well maybe I help some in that capacity. Ha!Ha! Goldie helps in the kitchen and Doug helps Don deliver the Meals on Wheels. Thank You each and every one. Cambridge Senior Chatter To costume Or not to costume, that is the question by ]anice Vuich Cawyer- 257-3358 I spent all morning completing a Hunger in America 2014 study survey, and I've been looking at the computer so long my eyes are burning. Because we are associated with the Idaho Food bank, we were asked to participate in the survey, which will include senior centers and food pantries from all over the US. It will be interesting to see the results when they get published. We also had our monthly foot clinic and our exercise class, so a lot has been going on all around me. Everyone has gone home now, so I'm alone with my thoughts until the Pinochle players start showing up later this afternoon. I saw snow for the first time this season out the front window of the center; it's the end of October so it's the right time of year for it to begin; just in time for the trick or treaters! our Wednesday Dinner falls on Halloween this. year, and I'm wondering if anyone wants to dress for the occasion. I'm not much of a holiday person myself, so I don't care either way (I think my costume creativity left me sometime in my forties). Since I won't get a chance to mention this again before Halloween, I'll leave it up to you. If you want to dress up please do, I might even have a surprise for you. The end of the month is coming up rapidly, so if you have any volunteer time, please be sure to write it down on your volunteer time sheets in the blue accordion folder on the front table. I will need those statistics for my month end report. I think I've run out of things to say this week, or at least I don't have a burning desire to talk about anything, and rather than waste column space, I will just bid you adieu and wish you a beautiful fall week to enjoy. Pastor's Corner Forgive and Forget When your children start fighting with each other, and someone gets hit, most of us tell them they need to tell each other they are sorry. Sometimes in life we get beat up. And tt doesn't have to be by a fist. We can get beat up by the words that are spoken to us or about us. Words cannot be taken back and they hurt deeply. When I talk to people I hear stories of the hurts in their lives. One lady told me years ago about her ex-husband and how he was so mean to her and such a bully. She refused to forgive him. I asked her how long ago they had been divorced because you could see the pain and hatred in her eyes like it had been recent. But it had been more than 20 years since they had divorced. But what had happened more than 20 years before was still destroying her. We began to look in the Bible to see what God had to say about it. I asked her if she believed that God had forgiven her and forgotten about her sins. And if we ask him to, he does. But that is also what he asks us to do as well. Forgive! Colossians 3:12-13 says, "Since God chose you to be the holy people whom he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. You must make allowance for each other's faults and forgive the person who by ]on Sorg offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you so you must forgive others." You are chosen by God to act and be totally different than the world. Our example is Christ and with God's help, we can forgive and forget the wrongs that have been done to us. With God all things are possible! Don't let the old stuff in your life destroy you. Forgiveness may be your key!
