17th New Thing

Saturday, May 04, 2013

The end of the 17th week of 2013 drawing near, and I've continued my quest to do/try something I've never done before each week of the year. Sometimes I have to think hard to come up with something, and sometimes it just happens. Our local Kiwanis Club has a Prayer Breakfast every year where invite the public to join them for an hour before work for some prayer, song and a speaker. I have never attended the breakfast. This year, however, I was asked to represent my church by playing piano and finding someone to sing. I chose a young high school girl who sings in my choir and has a beautiful voice. With the help of her voice teacher, she chose a song, "You Alone" by Sarah Hart, which we rehearsed a few times before the breakfast on Thursday morning. It was a very nice event, and I was glad I'd been asked to attend, as I probably would not have done so on my own. All those in attendance joined in two patriotic hymns, we had a few short prayers and a light breakfast of fruit and muffins. The speaker was our Sheriff, who goes overseas periodically with a group of law enforcement personnel who go to small countries and train them to enforce law and order in their countries, most of which are in struggles within their government. The lesson he presented was that we should not judge people by their governments -- people are the same all over the world. A good lesson indeed. I was happy to have been able to be a part of the annual Kiwanis Prayer Breakfast, and plan to attend next year.

  I wish you would blog once a month or so just to keep up to date. You sound like a very interesting person.

Thanks for posting on my blog today. So you must be reading other people's work.

We will be "Chia friends"...the kind that grow fast!

In the finally month of all our craziness. All appears to be in place for the weddings.
I'm looking forward to getting back on Spark and a calmer summer.
