Before I started writing my newsletters for this Trumpet, I sat down and read my daily Inspirational Day Brightener entitled “Jesus Calling- Enjoying Peace in His Presence” by Sarah Young. Each day is written as if Jesus Himself were speaking to you. Because He is. With the changes and uncertainty we are all going through, I thought it was very fitting and wanted to share it with you:
“This is a time in your life when you must learn to let go: of loved ones, of possessions, of control.”
In order to let go of something that is precious to you, you need to rest in My Presence, where you are complete. Take time to bask in the Light of My Love. As you relax more and more, your grasping hand gradually opens up, releasing your prized possession into My care. You can feel secure, even in the midst of cataclysmic changes, through awareness of My continual Presence. The One who never leaves you is the same One who never changes: I am the same yesterday, today, and forever. As you release more and more things into My care, remember that I never let go of your hand. Herein lies your security, which no one and no circumstance can take from you.”
I hope that you can hear God speaking to you in these words. Peace.
Due to the recent events and the uncertainty surrounding them, the Laser Tag Adventure activity scheduled for Friday, April 10 and the Art with a Heart event scheduled for Friday, April 17 have been postponed to a date to be determined later. Look for more details in upcoming communications.
Join us Tuesday, May 5th at 6:30 pm at Margaritas Mexican Grill located at 408 E Main St., Waukesha
We’ll be having dinner and discussing “Circe” by Madeline Miller.
“In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child — not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power — the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.
Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus.
But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.
With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language, and page-turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man’s world.” Bring a friend, everyone is welcome!
