Noon Meeting News – December 5, 2017 – Ray Szymanski – Hangar 18

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, I’m sure you remember when we talked to you as a kid and we would pray ” Now I lay me down to sleep -” Now grown with no one prompting us to pray or not knowing what to say we go to sleep without a
word. Falling back on a simple memorized prayer can jump start our conversations with You. Many children have learned this prayer and continue it today.
In peace O Lord I close my eyes.
In peace again I hope to rise.
Be with those I love the best.
As I take my nightly rest.
Led me in Your holy way.
Make me better everyday. Amen!
It’s always good to have a nightly conversation with You Lord, even if it’s with a memorized prayer. Amen!

Noon Meeting News – November 14, 2017 – Christmas Tree Lot Presentation

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, some of us are like tea bags , we have to be put in hot water to see how strong we are. So thank You for friends and companions who offer a hand when we are in need. Comfort when we are sad and words of encouragement when we mess up. As Optimist we are blessed with such friends. Since we have no gold to give and love must make amends. Please ,Lord makes us worthy of our friends. Amen!

This Saturday, November 18th, 8AM, ALL HANDS ON DECK, we will unload nearly 1,000 trees. Last year we sold out in 16 days, this year it is believed we will sell out even more quickly. EVERYONE is assigned to work the tree lot, so show up for as many shifts as possible. We are looking forward to another great season. MERRY CHRISTMAS.
