Pearline’s Story

Pearline’s Story We have all heard stories from agencies about their good works but how often can we put a face that has been helped with a particular agency.  This is Pearline’s story.  Pearline is now 91 and a valued member of Lakeview United Methodist Church in Sun City, Arizona. Back in 1956, Pearline was a single mother with a boy (4) and a girl (5) and was living in Oakland, California.  She was offered a promotion but this position…

Friends

Friends A Friend is one, who “know us” – our guilt and our shame – Regardless of our many sins Friends love us just the same. Years ago, I wrote those lines trying to describe “Friends.” Tell me:  what is your version? – “Your wisdom, never ends.” “A Friend in need, is a friend, indeed” – as the old “saying” goes – Friendship is much more than that – as anybody knows. – We have all kinds, so many Friends…

I Like To Be In The Middle

In tribute to our youngest daughter who left early (March 2019) to be in the middle of the Heavenlies. Hearing the patter of her small feet, I glanced at the glowing clock.  Five a.m. it read.  Instinctively I slid over to the center of the bed knowing that our little morning visitor was on her way.  She was too big for pajamas with feet in, so she claimed; and with lowered night temperatures and a nightly ritual of kicking off…

A quick heartfelt note to thank all my visitors while I was in Boswell Hospital and Rehab.  Especially Pastor Linda and Pastor   Ross. Also, there were several Stephen Ministers and many, many friends.  And then there were all the cards.  In addition to our local people, were cards from out of town. They all gave me a very special feeling of being watched over by angels due to all the prayers.  Thanks to all, I am well on the…

The End of the Pier

The End of the Pier There’s an old Irish saying when you say, “How are you doin” – – they say, “sure, and I’m comin to the end of the pier” I thought about it and it’s kind of neat! We’re all walking along the pier – – Sometimes we stop and make friends Along the way, or help someone whose fallen down. The only Rule is we can’t go back, only forward. Now, some fall off the pier before…
