Morrin Community Calendar
So hey there, we got some rain... hurray! Sure hope there is a little more coming our way soon. It was so refreshing to see it falling this past Saturday. Looks to be cloudy and cooler this week but the buds are out and the lawns are greening up nicely.
And students are on the home stretch at the Morrin school. The grade 5 and 6 class had a 59 minute-call- you- fromschool-cookie- doughblitz last Friday afternoon to raise money for their field trip to the Edmonton Legislature in June. First time our daughter Charly has had this responsibility, to make the calls and leave messages, follow-up, keep track of order forms and money and talk about all the who, what, when, where, why on the phone... she is quite the little salesgirl! Kudos to all the kids on a job well done! The principal sent a thank you to all the folks who supported the class and, teacher Mr. Saltys sent out an email to report how much fun they had and that they sold 285 tubs/boxes of cookie dough and made $1500.00 for their efforts. The delivery date for the product will be May 25... thanks so much!
And Mother’s Day is coming up on May 8 this year and the Morrin Community Hall Association will be serving up a delicious breakfast that morning from 9-noon for a modest charge. Items on the menu... eggs benedict, scrambled eggs, pancakes, ham, sausages and hash browns, also fresh fruit plates and strawberries and whipped cream and for a beverage... sparkling orange juice.
So, here is some food for thought. I was talking to a friend a few days ago. She was reminiscing about the year her daughter was born and that it was an unusually warm Easter they enjoyed on the patio with a BBQ. Nobody was worried about global warming. At that time, both the Canadian and US governments were sounding the alarm about the energy crisis. At the rate we were using gas and oil, they were predicting a world shortage of fossil fuels. That was 38 years ago. We both recollected the season when government came up with the brilliant idea of open classrooms in schools... the best learning environment they said. It was party time for kids like us and must have been a nightmare for those with attention deficit disorder. It is a wonder we all graduated from high school, let alone made it through the fossil fuel crisis. Government is often claiming the sky is falling because they take in the taxes and wield the power and we continually go along with their propaganda. Now, the new agenda proposed by government by 2030 is to steer completely away from using dirty fossil fuels because they cause global warming which they say is a crime against humanity. My own thoughts... God made the heavens and the earth and all living things and “in Him we live and move and have our being”. He keeps the planets from bumping into each other, and He keeps us going even through all the disasters and changes the earth has seen in all these years. Yes, we do have to be good stewards of our planet. I think we might hold our governments more accountable and trust HIM a little more. Cheers!
