So many blessings and graces

November 20, 2012

Let us praise and bless the Lord for all God’s goodness to us.  HAPPY THANKSGIVING to each of you. We have so many blessings and graces; it would be a LONG list to list them all. How blest we are to have a God who loves and cares for us in such generous ways…and friends who do the same for us.

Last Friday evening, 16th, Sister Giles Weyandt, age 84, left us for heaven.  I knew her best as an elementary school teacher and principal.  She was a good one.  When I was stationed at Morris and she was at Osakis, I picked her up many times when we went together to principal’s meetings in St. Cloud. She had a great sense of humor and wonderful musical talents that she willingly shared. She is the last of her family to die. Think of the welcoming committee there was to meet her at heaven’s gate… along with her dear friend, Sr. Marcelline.  Eternal life give to her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.  Her Wake was last night and her Funeral is today.

Our Give to the Max Day last Thursday was very successful. 105 generous donors gave us $15,385 in that one day.  THANK YOU. The computer system was acting up because of the high volume of users so maybe some donors maybe just gave up.  God bless you all.

Next Tuesday, Father Brenny will be the presider at our daily 11:30 Mass. He wants to celebrate his 83rd birthday with us by joining us for Mass and lunch. Happy Birthday, Father. Thanks for all the good you’ve done these many years.  

In December the Music Center will present many concerts for our entertainment. Next week I will list those I know of.

Mass on Thanksgiving Day is at 8:30 a.m.—NOT at 11 a.m.

This morning the temperature was about 25 degrees, and it is VERY foggy.  May all travelers have safe journeys.  It is 9:40 a.m. now and the fog hasn’t lifted very much if at all.

Again, Happy Thanksgiving.  Safe travel to all who go to visit family and friends.

Peace and blessings,
Sister Mary Lou
