Holidays are over and it’s much quieter around town. I kinda miss all those kids and their joyous noise. I trust you had time with family to celebrate Easter and commemorate those who served our country on Anzac Day. How did you cope with all that busy-ness and influx of people?

So easily, especially in the company of the wrong people, we can become frustrated. Before you know it, you’re criticising and complaining, and the atmosphere becomes negative. That’s because words are like clouds or sunshine; they create a climate.

And we all know that climate change is difficult to understand and even more difficult to fix.

Best to avoid it and rise above your own anxiety by giving thanks, not by complaining. Never let your level of thanksgiving be determined by your situation, because God is greater than any situation you face. So how can we develop a positive, faith-filled outlook?

(1) Decide to. Abraham Lincoln told the truth when he said, ‘Most folks are as happy as they make up their mind to be.’ Refuse to spend another moment criticising and complaining.

(2) Start now. Change doesn’t come easily, but unless you make a start it won’t come at all. When your first few sentences are negative, self-correct and steer the conversation back towards what’s positive.

(3) Look for what’s good. It might be hiding but you can usually find a positive in any situation.

Our Tombola planning is underway. This year it’s on 2 July and Margaret or Susie are ready to accept your donations and offers of assistance. More information will follow in coming months but it’s sure to be another successful event thanks to the generosity of our village.

    mainly music  –  has vacancies for pre-schoolers

The Wednesday prior to school holidays we were busy bees at mainly music. We made and decorated Easter Baskets, sang and played on an Easter theme and then finished the morning hunting for eggs to fill our baskets.

Now we are on Easter break over the school holidays but will be back in voice and dance on April 24.  

More pre schoolers are welcome to join us and very welcome to come to a “try” day.
