Over the past several weeks I have attended several activities that bring back many, many memories. Some of them are the wonderful times we spent together, some of the difficult times we went through together.
I helped good friends put together a presentation to be shown at the reception held honoring 40 years of ministry and marriage. I have share 20+ years with this couple. They have closed one chapter of their life and are moving on to a new one called “Retirement”. We continue to be in contact even though they have moved many miles away. Phones and computers allow us to keep in contact. Looking forward to sharing new memories with them when take an Alaskan Cruise later this summer.
The Cullison United Methodist Church celebrated 125 years of service to the Cullison community. A celebration was held on Saturday night. This is a community I spent 16 years in, marrying a local boy. I participated in many activities of the church when I was living there. The next morning we closed the final chapter as the church celebrated it final service. A very bittersweet day, to think of the many years of service, and now the members will become members of nearby churches to continue sharing their Christian Love.
Then last night I was able to share in the celebration of my grandson’s 9th birthday by webcam. Even though he is only 9 he is just starting to build his memories of which I hope he will have many in the years to come. We are also reminded when he was born. That first month was a real roller coaster, for Matt, Mom, Dad, and Grandmas.
No one can take these memories away. For each group a chapter has closed, but a new chapter begins. Even when the book closes, the characters will move on to other chapters.
