Sunday May 31, 2020 – Message from Reverend(s) Glenn a d Heather

Hello Folks!

Hard to believe the 5th month of our year 2020 ends today. Heading into June tomorrow, gives the feeling this year is passing by at warp speed (with apologies to Captain Kirk) How fast time is passing….we will be out and about before you know it, physical distancing included of course.

We wanted to talk briefly about a short line from an obituary we read many years ago. The obit was of a gentleman who was a dearly loved Husband and Father, well loved by his family, and his friends. We don’t remember his name, as it was awhile ago. We don’t remember the particulars of the obit. However what we do remember was the love with which the family took to tell the world about this man who was so incredible in life. So what made this obit so different from all the others the Winnipeg Free Press has printed over the decades?

Many people have written over the years, about their loved ones who had left such a mark in their lives after their passing. Here’s the thing about this one. Just before the end of their tribute, they took a line from their Dad and told us what he had said. They said their Dad made it his mission for every family member to have:
“A place for everything, and everything in its place.” They said their Dad drove them crazy with this saying and this was said frequently. We had to laugh! How many times have our parents given us advice which we then laughed, rolled our eyes and went on with life. Remembering later on what our parents said as we grew wisdom. Funny tho’ that this one saying from their Dad had stuck with us, complete strangers at that! When we had a tendency to let things go, to be too tired to do anything else, we would say this line to each other and knuckle down to do the remaining task….at least we tried to make the effort.

Now with Covid and keeping us home bound; it was a good time to get a lot things in our home into better, more effective working order. The first rule of business was just this saying. Make a place for everything, then keep everything in its place. What a sense of accomplishment to finally achieve this. We often think of this man’s saying. Little does his family know what their beloved Dad said, has made a difference in the life of complete strangers. Stranger still, we have repeated this often to our own family and friends..

So what is it in the various areas of your lives, that you need to have a place for everything and everything in its place. So much can be read into this. Also what are some “gems” and sayings that have made a difference to you and have resonated with such upliftment, you have repeated it yourself to your family friends and neighbours alike. We need to remember that we don’t always have influence in people lives. They may not remember us, but they may remember our words and what we have said! God Bless!

Sunday May 24, 2020 – Message from Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather

Good Morning Folks! We missed sending a message for Mother’s Day and the long weekend. Sometimes life just happens and it isn’t all bad, sometimes its very good. We were glad it was the latter, and regret we didn’t have the time to even sit for a few moments and pen a note to you.

Life is slowly opening up with government health regulations easing with regards to being once again in the public, and with other people. Still, the time at home is at hand, and with it the close proximity of being with family.

By now, two and a half months later, your emotions with loved ones has probably run the course with every emotion coming to the surface…..good and the not so good. We would like to mention a few thoughts, that may help with those emotions that can be trying at times.

We make our own lives wherever we are. To your friends you continue to communicate with be thankful. Friendship beautifies life so much. Remember friends may come and friends may go. To those friendships that go, send them away with good thoughts of them finding what they are looking for in a friend. Life has an amazing turn around of bringing people back into our lives, you just never know. Make your parting, or letting go, especially an emotional one or a negative one, that of you letting go and asking for an emotional healing from your Spirit Guides. “Go with my blessings, but just go!” This phrase we attribute to a friend long passed, who had to leave a very destructive friendship behind, in order to have a better emotional life.

For those relationships that need a tune-up and are still wanted, just remember, yes, you can criticize in a constructive, helpful way, saying how the relationship makes you feel, and stay to praise! An old saying from down home says, “Come in to criticize and remain to praise!”

For yourself just remember to remember this to help you move forward. We must regret our mistakes and learn from them, never carrying them into the future with us. There is always a second chance, and it is called tomorrow. Go into your mornings with gratitude for the positives you have in your life, all the gifts you are blessed with and as Willie Nelson says, once again, press the “delete” button on yesterday! God Bless!

Hello Folks! Tomorrow starts the beginning of loosening the grip Covid-19 has had in Manitoba and around the world. Most people are still reticent about venturing out into the public and can’t say as we blame them. Just remember common sense will lead you well, and listening to your inner voice and how it makes you feel.

We’ve have said in the past, “if in doubt, don’t” and a certain amount of care needs to be practiced to keep you and those you love protected from this pandemic.

Our Message today is the famous saying by Andrew Jackson Davis. “In all things keep an even mind.” This is what we call the Golden Staff of Life. Now more than ever when your thoughts can be shaken, your life maybe uncertain, your job, your relationships upended, keep this saying front and centre in your mind. It takes you out of yourself and gives a perspective that is different.

As you go on your way today, and go forward this week, with temptations to feel despondent coming into your pathway; repeat often and as the situation arises…In All Things Keep An Even Mind. God Bless!
