Spring has certainly let us know it has arrived, here today. It is in the middle 80's.
We've been very fortunate that the warmer weather hasn't arrived earlier. The teacher as well as the children just can't seem to get much accomplished in hot weather. Only 13 days to go. Thank goodness says both the instructor and students!
This is a wonderful time of the year though. Isn't it?
It keeps one stepping to do all the out of door chores now along with our other activities. But it is rewarding to get ones hands soiled with OLD MOTHER EARTH and see its results.
We had a delightful trip to Atlantic City last Sat and Sunday which relaxes us.
Elmer was invited to replace the Supreme Tall Cedar Chaplain for the church service Sunday morning. It was held in the Traymore Hotel. The Rev. Mr. Ezra Parks, who is also minister of Camp Curtain Methodist church in Harrisburg, ask my Hubby to do the honors for him. He had to return back to his own church on Sunday because of an Anniversary celebration. We spent Saturday with him, his wife and daughter, Alice Ann reviewing the parade on the Boardwalk in the afternoon and reception at Convention Hall in the evening. After this program they started for home. We stayed until Sunday afternoon.
We had reserved seats for both occasions thanks to our fine friends.
Added inspiration was given to the worship service by a group of singing Cedars from Washington, D. C. They sang Acapella except for that beautiful hymn, 'God of our Fathers'. Three Trumpeters played their parts to the song. It simply was beautiful. The Almighty can come to one in such moments if we will just allow Him.
It was most rewarding to have the fellowship of such fine people and see the enthusiasm they share with each other about their National Project.
You know they are the sponsors of the Muscular dystraphy Foundation.
They had as their guests for the three days six boys who were patients on wheel chairs, victims of the disease. Their ages ranges from 9 to 19. Nurses and doctors accompanied them here from the Hospital. Their expressions of pleasure on their faces when the sights were pleasing to them could not help but touch ones soul. How fortunate we are when we have our health.
Thank heavens we have men as these who care about others.
We will be looking forward to seeing you real soon. Thanks for notes and card during my illness.
