Trustees Corner - May 2013

TRUSTEE'S CORNER

May is coming to a close and so is spring and I think you would agree that we had a wonderful spring with display of color from all the blooming plants and shrubbery.  From the first crocus in February through the azaleas and Iris in bloom now it has been one of the longest spring times in recent memory.  On to summer games and picnics!

Our second workday was a success with many showing up (myself NOT included).  Many thanks to Bruce Crawford for picking up the challenge and directing the scouts, Trustees and Church members that lent a hand in the weeding, trimming and general clean-up of the grounds surrounding our church building.  It looks great, Thanks Mr. Crawford.

Upcoming work still includes painting the exterior of the church, I know that I said I would have estimates by now, but they are still in progress and remember slow and steady wins the race.  I want to thank those that have already donated to the trustee fund your financial support is greatly appreciated.

I shared the following devotion with the Trustees during our May meeting. We want to share it with you since it can be applied to so many areas of our lives so here it goes:

1 Corinthians 3:10 - According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. His contractor was sorry to see such a good employee go, and asked him if he would build just one last house as a personal favor. The carpenter agreed but his heart was not in it. He resorted to bad workmanship and using cheap materials.

When the carpenter finished his work, the contractor came over and handed the front-door key to the carpenter. "I appreciate all the hard work you’ve done for me all these years and I’d like you to have this house as a token of my gratitude.”

The carpenter was shocked! If only he had only known he was building his own house, he would have worked much harder! Now he owned a house that wasn’t built very well.

We should think of ourselves as carpenters and our lives, here on earth, as our house. Each day we hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall, we must build with care! It is the only life we will ever build. And what we do here will count for eternity!

Our lives today are the result of our attitudes and choices we have made in the past. Our lives tomorrow will be the result of our attitudes and the choices we make today! Let’s proceed with caution.  All we do comes back to us in some form, both good and bad.

Build Wisely!  Written by George Whitten, editor of Worthy Devotions.

 

In your service and HIS Service,

The Trustees
