Pastor Patricia’s Pauses

Welcome to November – the month of Thanksgiving! I am so incredibly grateful lately of many things. This past week, when the temperature dipped to below zero, I was grateful for a roof over my head and a place to stay warm. It is during weather like this that I often wonder about the homeless who are living under a bridge or in a cardboard box. I pray for them and hope they can find respite in a warm building.

Speaking of where one lives…. Patrick, my husband, and I have been remarkably busy in October moving all our stuff into either a storage unit or an apartment here in Douglas. I have been staying in the apartment during the week, then driving to Casper to help pack the rest of the stuff. As we get older it seems that we accumulate more and more stuff! We did get rid of a lot, sold some stuff, and gave other stuff away.

Our apartment is at 820 ½ S. Tenth St. here in Douglas. People may know it as Dr. Townsend’s (dentist) old office. We are renting the basement and it is an answer to prayer! I have found that it is exceedingly difficult to find a place to rent here in Douglas that is livable! But God answered our prayer, and this apartment became available in September – so we swooped it up! Thanks to Dr. Mark and Tammy Townsend for allowing us to stay there while the parsonage gets finished! It is a very cozy apartment, but the twins have pointed out that it only has one bathroom. They were appalled! I told them that lots of people have only one bathroom and we will all just have to adjust. They crack me up!

Do not forget about the UMW Bizarre that is happening this month! I look forward to visiting with people as they meander through the booths. It is on Saturday, November 21. Be sure to stop by and say hi!

This month of thanksgiving let us all think about what we are thankful for. I once heard it said that the prevention for depression/anxiety is to be grateful. Be safe. Wear your mask. Stay warm and be thankful!
