Though this is the first day of spring, we have had Daffodils blooming at our entry way since St. Patrick's Day. We have had a couple cool, more typical March days but it is to warm up again. We went to Church on this Palm Sunday where the little kids walked around waving their Palm Branches. It's always a pleasant sight to see their expressions as they go by our pew. This was our first opportunity to hear the new Ministry Assistant, Jo Ellen Axthelm, as she helped with the service. Rev. Lambert concluded his series on "Stages of Life: Twilight Years". It seemed appropriate for us older folks. It was based on Samuel and that as you age and retire from your daily activities, you can never retire from God. It was a nice Service. Announcement was made of live performances this week of DaVinci's "The Last Supper" which the men of the Church have done for a number of years.Virginia played the Organ this morning which to Elaine and I, is always a treat. We even sang, "The Old Rugged Cross" and I couldn't resist singing the base part. I have a distinct memory of it being sang at my Great Grandmother (Walker) Carlson's funeral when I was about 9 years old. Interestingly, there were not nearly as many people in our Congregation singing it as their were the newer songs.
