MARYFIELD - This week we were privileged to hear the Kola male quartet named Forgiven. They and their director have their microphones and the sound systems so well co-ordinated.
We never tire of their hymns and songs. Another afternoon, Roy Bortolotto brought his sound system and keyboard to bring us music that we remembered from our youth.
My father’s hobby in the 1930s was ham radio. He had his station in one corner of the living room. When he could pass a code test of 20 words per minute, he was issued a licence. Then the game was to see how many U.S. states and other countries he could contact.
Years later, my late husband, who had no ear for music, had a real struggle to pass the code test. When he finally did, we had daily talks on ham radio with my parents.
A father and daughter were saying goodbyes at the airport. They hugged each other repeatedly each time exclaiming “Enough”! When the girl had gone on board, a bystander asked, “Why did you say enough?” She explained.
May you have enough joy to encounter pain. May you have enough love to overcome sorrow. May you have enough courage to overcome fear. May you have enough kindness to make a difference to others.
May you have enough self control to be someone’s angel, and humility to overcome self righteousness. May you have enough goodness to overcome trials, and faithfulness to overcome indifference. May you have enough patience to overcome weakness, gentleness to welcome the strangers and may you have enough grace and peace to thee.
Sunrise Villa has some illness right now so we are not wanting visitors at this time. Please call ahead to see if we have allowed visitation again. We are waiting impatiently for spring.
