I have a neighborhood Gavras Center home housing persons with developmental and/or physical disabilities. It is just around the corner of my house. I often pass by on dog walks…or my sporadic exercise routine. This past year I made a friend residing there. Her name is Nancy. Nancy spends the good weather days sitting on […]

The other day while traveling north on Interstate 81 to pick up Tom Herbert and then onto Watertown for a luncheon with area pastors I had a “close call”. Driving in the middle lane of 81, doing the 65 mph speed limit (give or take) I noticed some kind of truck in the far left […]

This morning I opened my office door, ready for a day’s work. Nothing out of the ordinary, just another Monday. As the door swung open I glanced toward my desk. The front office staff, Linda our Business Manager and Linnie our Administrative Assistant, earlier in the year, had placed an impressive looking plant on the […]

The word “omen” has gotten a bad wrap over the years, due primarily to a series of Hollywood movies with an evil theme. The dictionary gives this definition: An occurrence or phenomenon believed to portend (foreshadow) a future event. Simply put, an omen can be a good omen, like seeing a Robin, an omen that […]

I smelled the autumn leaves yesterday. I heard the crunch under my feet. I explored the reds and golds and yellows. It was a grand moment. So often the present, a memory being made, propels you back in time to like experiences, to memories of days gone by. Most memories are good. Bad memories can […]

Just a few days ago many were lamenting over the snow covered highways, having to don our winter coats, or a layer or two of our fall wear. We shook our heads and reluctantly resigned to the reality that the autumn days of colorful foliage and moderate temperatures had hibernated. That is until today. We […]

After what I’ll call a “time-out”, I thought I would give “Wayne Weekly” another go at it. With the Covid-19 reference being so widely circulated, I thought I would turn our attention to another “19”. 1 John 4:19 is a well-known verse, and probably has been committed to memory by many believers:   “We love, […]

Most of us have an attic or closet area that we store our Christmas decorations in. We have a corner in our attic that have boxes & plastic totes full of memories. Along with the garland and lights we have tree ornaments, many that have a story or special meaning. I will say that now […]

I tried. I tried to extend the life of my furnace by buying a new Honeywell replacement gas valve. I hired a HVAC specialist (heating, ventilation, air conditioning guy) to do the changeover. I actually believed that my 18 year old high efficiency furnace would be with me till the end. I thought we were […]
