Jodi is the coordinator for the Relay for Life in Gilchrist, Dixie and Levy counties. She is planning a special event on May 4th that will contain all of the familiar traditions, introduce some new fun things and will only last from 6:00 p.m. until 12:00 p.m. The location of the event will be the Fanning Springs Community Center and theme is Movies. I hear the Sheriffs Department has beat everyone to the Star Wars theme! The true goal of the event is to make this a community-based project that supports the people that we know and love. Cancer is happening so often that unfortunately we can lose sight of what is real, until that reality hits you or your family member. Then you realize how big it is!! The relay is an empowering moment where we join so many people in a life changing event. The Survivor Lap has always been the moment that touches my heart the most. The funds from the Relay for Life are directed locally with the goal in mind to help others get access to care and help patients survive. Two examples of this support are assisting others to get to medical appointments and utilizing the Hope Lodge in Gainesville. It is easy to sign up on line and then the fun begins, fundraising that is! Help us reach out to our community and show that we care about supporting others through this terrible disease. Jodi has a plan to make it fun and creative so we will experience a night of memorable moments.

This one ranks near the ones I have written, because parenting is the hardest job on the planet and it matters so much that we do this job well. Up front, I want to ask you: please do not read it with one ounce of judgment. If anything hits home with you I pray that you hear it as the voice of one who doesnt always get parenting right either, but is cheering all of us on to a healthier relationship with our children. Over the past 28 years of parenting and 15 plus years of counseling, I have often encountered heartbroken parents. Parents who love their sons and daughters more than their own lives, but have lacked the ability to promote responsibility and respect through instruction and discipline. As a result, by the time the children hit the teenage years, everyone in the house can be very miserable. Most often these parents suffer from an increasingly common malady that I call Parenting By Guilt. Parenting by Guilt is simply making decisions for your children based on the guilty feeling that you are responsible for their lack of respect, responsibility or their disobedience. Parenting by guilt presents in many situations, but here are a few that I have encountered: Divorced Parents: This one may be the most obvious. Divorce is hard on children, no doubt, but taking away discipline takes away their security and sets them up to blame someone or something else for bad choices the rest of their lives. Allowing disrespect of the other parent may make you feel better, but it is very harmful to your child. Best case scenario is for divorced parents to continue to co-parent consistently and be emotionally supportive during the excuse disobedience. Parents Who Messed Up Big: Our past may haunt us to the point that we feel hypocritical to correct our own children. King David suffered from this one to the point that his son raped his daughter and one son killed another while he remained silent. (See 2 Samuel 11 & 13). Think about this: if you were given a supervisors position at your job, would you not correct those who worked for you simply because you had made mistakes in learning the job early on? Our role as parents is not contingent on doing life perfectly. On the contrary, our past mistakes (and what we learned from them) should help us be more insightful parents and help us teach our children all the more. Grandparents Raising Grandchildren: This has become an epidemic in our culture! Grandparents often feel guilty because their children have failed their grandchildren and they may feel an underlying responsibility. Parenting is so hard for grandparents because the role of a grandparent is so different than a parent. If you are a grandparent who has taken on the challenge of raising a grandson or granddaughter, you must make sure that you switch the role. If a child can only have either a parent or grandparent, the most important need is for a parent. Giving them monetary rewards or too much freedom will not replace what is missing from their lives, but teaching respect and responsibility will help them navigate those troubled waters. Financially Successful Parents: I want to tread lightly herebut I have seen this struggle. Parents who have much more than their parents do much more for their children in terms of gifts and privileges. This can be a slippery slope, and one where the parent understands the value of money but the children do not. I have heard it said that if one does not have what it takes to acquire something, they likely will not have what it takes to keep it. with parental obligations. Teaching your children to get something for nothing will not serve them well in life, especially if you become unable or unwilling to support their appetites. Responsibility always accompanies privilege. Because as parents, we all want the very best for our children. And every heart matters. New Hope Baptist Church 4470 NW CR-236 P. O.

Wonder if well ever get brave enough to hook the computer up to the long arm. Im sure Winnelle would never, ever approve of the long arm. we could have up to four quilts in the frame and now twenty years later, we are down to one quilt in the frame with three quilters The sewing class on Wednesday was interesting. By the end of the day, most of the ladies felt comfortable jelly roll strips had to be sewn together, then cut and sewn together again. The quilt top will look great Johnny was busy Wednesday with several sewing machines. One common mistake that is made is using WD40 instead of 3in1 oil or sewing machine oil. While using WD40 wont be a complete disaster, it isnt good for the machine. Easter is just around the corner and melons are being planted so the lawn mowers arent far behind.

This year, in order to ensure the success of the fair boosters, we need your help. We are currently out raising money and the fair is quickly approaching.

If you already have buyers lined up for your animal, you do not have to participate in the fund-raising efforts. Finding your own Buyers is highly encouraged as the Booster Club is not able to purchase everyones animal. Please contact one of the boosters below with questions, comments or to turn in your collec tion. Thank you for your time and attention. We look forward to hearing from you.
