THANK YOU
I take the liberty to speak for all the ladies that were able to attend the
Ladies Retreat: What a wonderful weekend we had spending time with
each other as Christians. Our speakers were a joy to listen to and the
singing was absolutely beautiful as we praised God in song.
Our food was delicious. A thank you to Tim Richardson, Leo Adams,
and Steve Walker for preparing and serving us our meals.
Also, a thank you to our elders that support our efforts and encourage
us in this event. We appreciate it.
Lastly, to all the ladies that played a part in making this event happen,
we thank you too.

Stressed Out
Remember the children’s book, Alexander and the Terrible,
Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day? Here’s a brief except from it. “I
went to sleep with gum in my mouth and woke up with gum in my
hair. When I got out of bed I tripped over my skateboard. I dropped
my new sweater in the bathtub. I had a terrible day at school. I had to
visit the dentist. And mom cooked lima beans for supper and I hate
lima beans. My bath was too hot and I got soap in my eyes. My
marble went down the drain in the tub. My cat went to sleep with
Anthony and not with me. It has been a terrible, horrible, no good,
very bad day and I think I’ll move to Australia.”
Children experience stress, adults do as well. The word means to
become tight. It is a mental, emotional, physical impact of people,
situations, circumstances with produce strain and tension and anxiety
in our lives.
How do we deal with stress?
1. Recognize that some stress is normal in every life. James
reminds us that the testing of our faith produces patience.
2. Develop a positive attitude. If we get into a stress-mess, and if
we have a positive attitude, it will help us get through it.
3. Get some physical exercise. Paul told Timothy that bodily
exercise does profit a little.
4. Develop a sense of humor. It has been well said that he who
learns to laugh at himself will never cease to be entertained.
5. Feed our spirit. The more we feed our spirit on spiritual things,
the better we will cope with stress.
6. Lean hard on the Lord. 1 Peter 5:7, “Casting all your anxiety
upon Him, because He cares for you.”
7. Be involved with the family in the church. The church is the
place where we encourage one another and help one another in times
of stress.
Isaiah 26:3, “The steadfast of min Thou wilt keep in perfect peace,
because he trusts in Thee.”
Just remember “stressed” spelled backwards is “desserts.”
