~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"The best teachers of humanity are the lives of great men." - Charles H. Fowler

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:

It was a beautiful afternoon in March 1984. We were living in Napa, California. My six children, my husband and I were on a ride in our Chevy station wagon. We had driven over to the ocean and were headed back home, singing as we went. It had been a perfect day and the sun would soon be setting.

As we cruised along a country road at about forty mph, we saw a huge buck standing beside the road. It started to bound into the woods, but suddenly turned back and came straight across the road. My husband slammed on the brakes, but we knew it was too late. The deer tried to jump over the hood but it didn't jump high enough. We knew that if we hit the buck, it would come through the windshield.

Suddenly the deer was picked up and lifted over the car. It was high enough that on its undersides we could see the perfect imprints of two hands. It was as if everything went into slow motion. All of us in the car were able to see it. My husband, Bruce, stopped the car, and we all sat still for a bit, marveling at what we had just seen.

That day will always be special to us, the day we saw the angel hands.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Sermon Fodder's Bulletin Bloopers 2003
Part 1 of 2 [May 19, 29]

Don't forget the annual Child Watch banquet next Tuesday. They've been serving children for 18 years.

We want to offer special prayers for the police officers in our congregation and all the officers on the force. Remember, Officer Wilson who was injured this week when his cruiser was hit by a car that then ran away.

One Sunday the first hymn listed on our song sheet was "Surley Goodness and Mercy!!" Those who weren't in a good mood when the service started immediately had a smile. Amber in Lake Isabella, CA

Please join us for the Christmas concert and sinalong (Richard Lederer)

Don't forget the Community Rabies Vaccination Clinic under the church picnic pavilion starting at 9:00 a.m. Saturday. The Cost is only $10 and Senior citizens are free with proof of age.

Providing adequate housing to area senior citizens has always been a concern. The staff and board of The Village see themselves as being in misery to the residents of the retirement community.

We are asking for donations of non-perishable food items to help the needy. Please help us refill our food panty.

I would like to thank those who worked to make the regional annual meeting a success. Many of the delegates commented on the wonderful hostility they received from our local people.

Congratulations to Dawn Olson who recently graduated from booty camp at U.S. Navy's Great Lakes Recruit Training Center on Feb 22nd.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:

One night at McChord Air Force Base, I was dispatched to check out the security fence where an alarm had gone off. The fence was at the end of the base runway. When I got to the scene, I found a raccoon was the culprit, so I ran around and flapped my arms to scare the animal away.

Suddenly an air-traffic controller came over the public-address system and announced loudly, "Attention to the airman at the end of the runway. You are cleared for takeoff."
