Good day to all and it is the se­cond day of spring as I put my thoughts to­gether this Mon­day morn­ing. And hey, we sure had fun at church yes­ter­day cel­e­brat­ing Palm Sun­day Hawai­ian style...aloha! We have some great folks who dec­o­rated and pos­i­tively trans­formed our friend­ship hall into a colorful potluck party luau...great morn­ing ser­vice with Pas­tor Brent and great food and fun that was en­joyed by all! The Mor­rin Bethany Lutheran Church also served up a Palm Sun­day break­fast so hope they had a great morn­ing as well.

And speak­ing of food... this is the last call for the Ham Bingo be­cause it is on tonight...Wed­nes­day, at the Mor­rin Com­mu­nity Hall and the doors are open at 6:00 p.m.

Also a very im­por­tant an­nounce­ment on be­half of the 4H multi-club as they ask you to please save up all your re­cy­clables. The club mem­bers will be out on a blitz through­out the first two weeks of April to gather up bot­tles, cans, plas­tic milk jugs etc. and elec­tron­ics. They work hard and they have a lot to gain so let’s help them out as they help us out and take our stuff. Con­tact num­ber I be­lieve is Me­lanie Nelson at 403-772-0000 if you have items for pickup.

And it is Fes­ti­val week... from danc­ing to speech, pi­ano, in­stru­ments and singing, there is so much ef­fort put for­ward by teach­ers and stu­dents, par­ents and helpers, so go do your best! Af­ter that comes Good Fri­day and Easter week break for ev­ery­one at the school.

So, Easter Sun­day is just days away...cel­e­brate! We have so many won­der­ful tra­di­tions...Easter egg hunts, choco­late, spring and new life to come...beau­ti­ful, glo­ri­ous Easter and my thoughts are also filled with sober­ing thank­ful­ness to Je­sus, pre­cious Je­sus, who gave it all and then came back...to life!

And would like to leave you with a fa­vorite poem by Wil­liam Cow­per.... “I was a stricken deer that left the herd long since with many an ar­row deep in­fixt. My pant­ing side was charged when I with­drew to seek a tran­quil death in dis­tant shades. There was I found by one who had him­self been hurt by the archers. In His side He bore, and in His hands and feet, the cruel scars. With gen­tle force so­lic­it­ing the darts, He drew them forth, and heal’d and bade me live”. Happy choco­lately, springy, new life Easter bless­ings to all...cheers!
