The Rogers County Fair will be held September 12-15, 2019. We will have our booth again this year and will need volunteers to work. There will be a sign-up sheet in the narthex. We are asking for volunteers to sign up to man our table for 3-hour segments/shifts on one of the days. If you have questions, please contact Marilyn Kirk. Let’s go to the Fair.

 

Time to start planning for our annual LWML quilt and kit donations to the Lutheran World Relief. The following kits can be assembled: PERSONAL CARE, FABRIC, BABY CARE, and SCHOOL (backpacks will be provided to you, and now school supplies are cheaper). Instructions for these kits will be available in the Narthex. Please keep completed kits at home until we box them in late September. Cash can also be given to LWML for shipping costs. Thanks for your help. For further help, contact Roz Burger.

Dr. Jerry Kieschnick, president emeritus of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, wrote. “I thought I’d share some wisdom from our friend Charlie Brown.” 

+ Life isn’t meant to be easy; it’s meant to be lived.  Sometimes happy, other times rough.  But with every up and down you learn lessons that make you strong.

+ As we grow up, we realize it’s less important to have lots of friends and more important to have real ones.

+ The smile on my face doesn’t mean my life is perfect.  It means I appreciate what I have and what I have been blessed with.  I choose to be happy.

+ There are moments in life when you miss someone so much you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real.

+ The less you respond to rude, critical, argumentative people, the more peaceful your life will become.

+ I don’t have time to worry about who doesn’t like me.  I’m too busy loving the people who love me.

+ A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.

+ Worrying won’t stop the bad stuff from happening.  It just stops you from enjoying the good stuff.

+ You may feel lost and alone, but God knows exactly where you are and he has a plan for your life.
