Montgomery locals

By Staff | Feb 5, 2013

I hope this week finds you all well after the very bizarre weather trends we have been having. Even at my age, though, it is still exciting to receive that “snow day” call in the morning. I realize that I will still have to make the day up, but there is something very relaxing about that unexpected vacation day.

Perhaps the month of February will bring us more stability with our weather. If not, I encourage you all to find a way to make your own “snow day” and relax. It is good every now and again for our minds and bodies.

I wish you all well this month and ask that churches contact me with any upcoming Lenten and Easter season services and activities.

Next Sunday is the celebration of the Chinese New Year.
