Thanks for the Other Day

 

Greetings from Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church. I'm Don Kleinschmidt, the interim Senior Pastor, and I am happy to be allowed to share this space with you.

My wife and I served as missionaries to Japan. We lived there ten years, where, of course, we had to relate to the Japanese in their language. The first time it happened (or that I was able to understand) I was puzzled to hear a person I had met only once say, "Thanks so much for the other day." I didn't even...

Hi,

Just logged onto your website and found it pretty interesting. It was nice to see my uncle's picture on it. American Legion Post 241, Chester Gwozdz. My uncle comes to Toledo/Rossford, Ohio a lot, as Rossford is his hometown. He visits his brother and many other relatives and friends. He brings many things into donate to charity here. He helps out the veterans and children here too. He really is into helping out the poor and the needy, with the help of the American Legion. It's a...

Wayne has discovered Viagra. I do wish he would get some sleep and take better...

The Lollipop

 

A mother told me a very moving story about her three-year-old daughter, Beth, who was the youngest child in their neighborhood. She toddled after the big kids but understood that they didn't really want her along.

One day this mother looked out her kitchen window and saw Beth standing at a fence, watching the other children playing baseball. They wouldn't let her play, of course, and it was upsetting her. Suddenly the little girl ran into the house calling, "Lollipop, Mom! I...

Dear Mr. McCune:

 

With Veterans' Day approaching soon, I want to thank THE WAYNEDALE NEWS for this opportunity to honor and to thank all of our Veterans, every veteran from the very first conflict when the First Shot was fired in our Nation's struggle for independence and every conflict and war thereafter in the defense of freedom and to maintain world peace. Those who are with us now and those who are gone. And the real heroes who never came home. Barbara and I pray for all of the...
