Okay, so maybe I don't have a future as a weather forecaster, but then, come to think of it, weather forecasters are some of the few people who can be wrong and still KEEP their jobs! As I'm writing this on Sunday evening, Mason County is under a severe storm watch and I think I can hear thunder. Big grin!Wow, we have a lot of birthdays to celebrate this weekMonica Cotter on the 13th, Jackson Calhoun is turning 7 on the 15th, Jordan Dyess on the 16th, and Sam Hoerster IV on the 18th. And celebrating their anniversary on the 18th are Dick and Dorris Ann Pierson (we love the bull and have named him Nick). I hope you all have a wonderful day!Prayer requests this week have been asked for Bill Koock, Lee Graham, Brenda Kothmann, Steve Toone, Ruby Toeppich and Jane Krause. Also in need of good thoughts are Dick Pierson, Kendra Kensing Code, Ken Stahl, Betty Kitchen, Jacob Bibb, Paul Toeppich, Tommy Garrett and Tommy Ruffolo. And always remember our family who are housebound or in nursing homes, they need our thoughts and prayers as wellAnna Grace Durst, Etta Marie Mutschink, Pearl Leifeste, Dick Pierson and Jane Krause.No matter who is in office or what else is happening in our government, our service men and women deserve our complete support. Every day, every hour, they put their lives on the line for the every day freedoms we take for granted. Its a comfort to me to know they're out there protecting our country from all enemiesforeign and domestic. These are our husbands, our sons, our daughters, our nephews, our nieces, our friends, these are the people we love, never forget the sacrifice they are making for us.In light of the fires in west Texas, I would also like to ask that we keep all fire fighters in our thoughts and prayers. They do a tremendous and scary job. I hope they put the fires out soon and can return home safely.The Lenten luncheon this week is on Wednesday, April 13th at noon at St. Paul Lutheran Church. Next week's luncheon is to be determined. Please join us for faith, fellowship and food. Pastor Mark relayed the story of Lazarus coming back to life. Martha asked Jesus why He hadn't come sooner; He could have prevented Lazarus' death, but Jesus knew what He was doing when He waited. He wanted to make sure everyone was certain that Lazarus was truly dead, so that when Jesus raised him from the dead all the people would understand the power of faith and belief. Miracles can happen when no one is looking, all it takes is for us to believe.ger/apr 13 col-bits of art
