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!
