December 19, 2003 Chautauqua

 
From the Editor's Computer     

  People tell me that time flies as you get older and each year passes quicker than the one before.  I can believe it, as this year definitely flew on by. 

   Here we are almost at the end of another year, Christmas is just around the corner, and it’s paper day again...and I haven’t had a chance to think of anything profound to share with you!

   This holiday season, don’t let the hustle and the bustle distract you from the real reason for all this excitement at this time of year.  Take a moment to remember friends and family, both near and far.  Share in the fellowship of others, be it at Christmas parties or special church services.  Remember there is more than one way to give to others.

   May your holiday be safe and full of fun and may the new year bring you endless joy!

December 5, 2003 Chautauqua

 
From the Editor's Computer     

   On November 23, 2003, I was in Stettler to watch the Heartland Arts Troupe perform their rendition of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.  All the performers and volunteers are to be commended on an excellent performance.

   The cast and crew of the production willingly shared their various talents so that the members of the audience could enjoy the experience.  Not everyone can be the star of the production, but everyone’s contribution, no matter how small it may seem, is necessary for the whole production to occur.

   Each one of has a multitude of talents.  Some of these talents we share quite readily, others we keep hidden.  Some talents we wish to explore further, while others we refuse to acknowledge.

   Each of us has to determine which talents are most important to us, and which, depending on circumstances in our lives, we are willing to put on hold if need be.

   Only as individuals can we decide which talents we are going to develop and nurture within us, and then share with others around us.

   You don’t have to be perfect, or the star of the show, to share your talents.  What are you waiting for?
