What do I hear? Its rain and how wonderful it sounds. We were all praying for rain and I hope we all thank the good Lord as he answers our prayer. I suppose the first complaint will be those who are going to the state fair. Thats one place I wont or dont go, just too much walking for an old gal like me. I was there once but it was many years ago. Today (Sat.) I just dont have much to write, Im just sitting by my desk, next to the window, listening to the rain come down, its music to my ears.
. . . . .

Two dogs met on the street one day and started talking. "Im a mess," said one. "I think Im headed for a nervous break-down."

"Why dont you see a psychiatrist?" asked the other dog.

"I cant," the first complained. "Im not allowed on the couch."
. . . . .

When the new preacher moved to town, one of the first people he met said, "I certainly hope youre not one of those narrow-minded ministers who thinks only the members of his congregation are going to Heaven."

"Im even more narrow-minded than that," the preacher replied. "Im pretty sure some of the members of my congre-gation arent going to make it, either."
. . . . .

The mule may be the worlds most frustrated animal, but one thing is surehes not the dumbest.
. . . . .
A lot more people would
try to do right
if they thought it was wrong.
. . . . .

He who is good for making excuses is seldom good for any-thing else.
. . . . .
Remember, a prune is a plum that worried too much and got wrinkles.
. . . . .
These times right now are stranger by far
Than any that our ancestors knew;
Miss a days work and the
Loses as much as you do
. . . . .
Needed a Proofreader
1. Betty R. remains in the hos-pital and needs blood donors for more transfusions. She is also having trouble sleeping and requests tapes of Brother Jacks sermons.
2. The used clothing sale will begin at 1 p.m. If things dont sell, there will be a price reduction later in the day. Ladies shirts would drop at 4 p.m. and mens pants lowered shortly after.
3. The over 60s chair will be disbanded for the summer with the thanks of the entire church.
4. The church women are plan-ning an English Tea Party, inviting the woman of area Lutheran churches. All women are asked to wear hats and gloves: No slacks please.
5. Midweek services are still focusing on the Seven Deadly Sins. This week, "Greed and Gluttony". Join us for service at 7:30 and come earlier for soup and salad at 6:30.
6. Come and celebrate! Pastor John will present his last sermon next Sunday.
7. Remember in prayer the many who are sick of our community
