Pastor Patricia’s Pauses

Here it is June! Flowers are blooming. Spring allergies are acting up. I can smell the scent of fresh cut grass throughout Douglas. Children are outside. People are out and about – perhaps walking their dog. Life is good. We all tend to love this time of year as late spring, summer and early fall are the best seasons as far as weather is concerned here in Wyoming.

Life on Sundays has been such a joy! We are no longer wearing masks in service as I believe most people have been vaccinated. It’s great to see everyone’s full faces! Some of our snowbirds have returned as well and we are happy to see them, too!

During the summer months our Joyful Noise Singers will not be doing anthems on every Sunday. Cindy Barnard has informed me that they will sing anthems just one Sunday a month. So, I encourage all people who come to worship on Sundays to sing out loud! Make a joyful noise! No one cares if you are on key or not. Singing is “praying twice” as I’ve heard. We just love to hear your voices.

On May 23, we had a “work day” outside the church. On behalf of the church family, I would like to thank all that helped clean up the outside of our church: Lorraine Eaton, Jackie Zufall-Holt, Arlene Zufall, Rita Prager, Cindy Barnard, Imo Harned, Fred Bingemer and anyone I may have missed. The church grounds look so much better due to your hard work.

Father’s Day is this month. As I think about Father’s Day, I’m grateful that we all have a heavenly Father who is kind, just and trustworthy. To all the earthly Fathers – just know that we appreciate all that you do for your wife, your children and your church family. Dads have a knack for “bad dad jokes”, being able to fix just about anything, work hard to provide for the family, and are Godly examples of how to be good Christian men. For those of us whose dad is no longer with us here on earth, we miss their advice, their laughter and their smiles. But we look forward to seeing them again in heaven!

Life at the parsonage is going well. We hope to have a new roof on by the end of summer. It was damaged by hail in the spring of 2020. The backyard has been sloped and soon we will have grass planted there again. Hopefully, this will prevent any further water leaks in the basement. My family appreciates the church’s work to give us a nice place to live here in Douglas.

Our twins are home now for the summer. Taylor works at Starbucks in Safeway. Morgan works in the produce department at Safeway. If you happen to see curly haired young ladies at Safeway, say hi to them!

May your summer days be filled with God’s presence in all that you do. Whether it is gardening, going to the rodeo, going to grandchildren’s baseball games or just hanging out with friends. Be sure to come to service on Sundays whenever you can.

We are always happy to see you!
