It is Monday morning and time to get the Satsop News written and sent off to The Vidette.
Thursday morning, I had to call for an ambulance for my husband, Jim. He has COPD and about once a year spends several days in the hospital getting his lungs cleared. Hopefully, he will be released this morning. I have spent every day in Olympia with him and have not enjoyed the drive back and forth. This weather is nasty.
Sunday morning, I did make it to church and then headed back up to Olympia. Pastor K led the Sunday service. Cadie Nuxoll and Dalton Combs lit the candles. Pastor K read the Scriptures. Joys shared: Mike Tobola enjoyed visiting with his daughter in Pennsylvania but was sad that Arline couldn’t go this time as she had been sick early in the week and didn’t want to take her germs back to the new granddaughter. Arline does plan on going to Pennsylvania to see her granddaughter sometime in October. Our church now has new windows, a new stove and dishwasher. Everything is looking really good. Francine Carpenter shared the joy of her dad, Frank Schneider, being inducted into the Westport Chamber of Commerce Hall of Fame.Elma Buckaroo Days was great fun even with the weather so lousy. Bev Scott said it was a joy to be feeling better after she got to ride in the ambulance to the hospital, but glad to be home. Prayers are needed for Marlene Thele, Brian Graham and Jim Borden for healing. Pastor K asked for prayers for her friend whose cancer has returned.
Mark this date on your calendar: Oct. 15th. Satsop Church Fall Roast Beef Dinner & Bazaar — 4:30 to 7:00p.m.
The offering was collected by Mark Carpenter and Russ Combs.
My thought for the week: DO NOT FORGET to get your flu shot. As soon as I get rid of this cold I picked up in this wet weather, I will be getting mine.
Have a good week and I am now off to Olympia and hopefully bring Jim home.
