We are celebrating some really special occasions this year at our church along with our usual crop of new babies (which are extremely special in and of themselves). Genesis 9:7 seems to be our congregational life verse. Good job everyone. We are exceedingly well blessed and God is faithful.
During the summer we celebrated a wonderful lady who turned 100 years old. Her family had a special family dinner. Turkey dinner with all the trimmings followed by the birthday cake she always made for her family. As a special treat her daughter-in-law put loonies in each piece so that everyone present would leave with a 2013 one dollar coin. Her church family surrounded her the following Sunday to mark the occasion with hugs, well wishes and of course more cake. What a treat for all of us.
This past Sunday we marked the 61st Anniversary of a wonderful couple. They are leaders and mentors in our church family and special people to many, Noel and I included. My Sunday isn’t complete without a hug from Wayford and Wilma. Wilma has shared her wisdom with many women’s groups over the years as a leader and participant. She has even shared with all of you as a guess writer for our blog. Wayford is a wonderful man of God who has served many as a minister and continues to be an encouragement to us as an elder in our church. They are a joy. I’m so glad I’ve had the opportunity to sit at their feet.
So, Happy 100th Birthday Sadie and Happy 61st Anniversary Wayford and Wilma. We love you.
