Janet, our president, called the meeting to order. We pledged our allegiance to Old Glory and sang our national anthem. Janet read John 14:27 and read a quote from Mother Teresa for our devotional. Elaine will continue the devotions for the month of February. The ones on our prayer list for this week are Brenda Nestor, Tom Claypoole, Pauline Reed, Jo Smith, Sarah Duckworth, the Shreves family, Alan McIntire, Janet’s grandson’s wife, Mary ??(God’s knows who it is), our country, president, leaders and everyone everywhere. We have so much sickness, pain and sorrow everywhere; we all need to be on our knees for each other.
No business for this week. The commander of the Shinnston American Legion, Bruce, thanked us for the donation to help buy an ice machine. It is installed and working. They appreciated the donation very much.
We celebrated groundhog’s day. We did our chenille art again and tried to make groundhogs. The winners were Sylvia, Connie, Deloris and Billie – Good work girls.
Stanley gave the blessing for our meal and prayed for all those on our prayer list. We had soup and sandwiches. Enith, Billie and Deloris were our kitchen crew. Everything was delicious.
Our bingo coverall winner was Billie; 50/50 drawing – Karen; guess jars – Sylvia, Karen and Louie and 1st door prize winner was Enith. Yes, we are accepting new members. In fact, we had 4 people join last week …it’s just $8 per year. We would love to have you. The more, the merrier!
Now here is the thought for the week – Psalm 133:l “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” Think about that for a while. Wouldn’t our country and world be something if we all could live in unity? This is a goal to work toward … learning to live with each other without strife. It can be done if we only let God rule and reign in our lives daily. See your next week.
