On The Bricks

October 13, 2014

Vicar Sandra Castillo of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church came and did a Blessing of the Main Street Guymon Office. I had seen in her newsletter that she does that for other businesses and I wanted to be a part. I’m thinking if God is invited in to the office then it can only help!

The final blessing was, “Visit, O blessed Lord, the office of Main Street Guymon with the gladness of your presence. Bless all who serve here with the gift of your love; and grant that they may manifest your love to all whose lives they touch. May they grow in grace and in the knowledge and love of you; guide, comfort, and strengthen them; and preserve them in peace, O Jesus Christ, now and forever. Amen.” Thank you, Vicar Sandra. I love that you brought blessings to all those who work with and for Main Street Guymon.

Reminds me of the saying, a Sunday well spent brings a week of content.

And there is this quote that I don’t know who said it, but I’ve been wanting to share it because I just love it.

“Life is a song – sing it.

“Life is a game – play it.

“Life is a challenge – meet it.

“Life is a dream – realize it.

“Life is a sacrifice – offer it.

“Life is love – enjoy it.”

We should all carry those words with us this month and enjoy the heck out of all that we do.

I’m telling you, I enjoyed going to the Guymon Community Theater play last Friday. What a great play. I laughed and laughed. And I even cried. It was exceptional. I realized that I have never gone to one of the plays that I didn’t enjoy it. Some more than others. This one was one of the mores. If you haven’t ever done so, go to a play. They’re fun and the people who put the play on have worked themselves to a frenzy to get it done. They deserve our attention for that moment.

My hat off to you Director Kasey Russell, Assistant Director Josh Setzer, Brenda Teegarden, Brad Teegarden, June Wadley, Brenda Bridwell, Evelyn Cartwright (my grandson’s other grandmother), Sarah Russell, Jackie Mathis (yeah, Mathis Oil is a Main Street member), Marlene Henson, Arlene Winfrey (yeah, wearing her Main Street Cash Mob t-shirt … we love you Arlene!), and Deanna Teegarden. You all did a great job. You brought sunshine to our week!

Remember what Steve Martin said about sunshine? “A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.”

Loved seeing all of you on the bricks at the play … especially you Denise Lunt because you enjoy laughing as much as I do!
