World Day of Prayer 2011 Women, men and children in more than 170 countries and regions will celebrate World Day of Prayer, Friday, March 4, 2011. The women of Chile have written the service around the theme How many loaves have you? They Ask us to enter a process that draws us into the Bible, into the context of Chile and into the real situations of our lives and communities. Together, we are asked to respond to what we have and how we can share it with others. In this past year, Chile has been challenged by a devastating earthquake and the collapse of a mine in which many miners were trapped. Again we are reminded to share our bread and to receive the bread that is shared with us. On March 4, 2011, let us reach out our hands and hearts to touch the lives of sisters and brothers in Chile and around the world. This year‟s service will begin with lunch at noon followed by the service at 1:00 pm on Friday, March 4, 2011. It will be held at the Ashland United Methodist Church. Come join the women of Chile in prayer and song to support women‟s ecumenical ministries toward justice, peace, healing and wholeness.

March 2011 ―THANK YOU‖ Friends,

Cooper Kane Leinberger December 10, 2010 Justin & Jenny Leinberger are delighted to announce the birth of their son, Cooper Kane Leinberger December 10, 2010 3:34p.m. 8 pounds, 5 ounces 21 inches Grandparents Kenny & Debbie Greer Eldon & Dena Leinberger

You know, I wish I was an ordained minister and knew a lot more about the Bible and God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit; but my life hasn’t developed that way. Thank you for all those ministers who take us a little closer to God each time they speak to us!!! I don’t know about the many mysteries of the Bible (although I will someday). I don’t know much about God’s plan (but I know a little more each day). I don’t know how God does what He does each day to show us some of the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets in the world! I have no idea how Jesus had enough courage to go to the cross for us; to suffer so much physical and emotional pain!!! One thing I do know is how to say ―Thank You‖ to God for what He has given us!!! I know a blessing when I see one!!! I know what kind of a blessing the song ―I Know How to Say Thank You‖ sung by Mark Lowry is to me!

Great Grandmothers Barbara Jones Judy Henry Doris Leinberger

Below you will find some excerpts from this song. Just remember to say ―Thank You‖ several times a day for your blessings from God!!!

―There were times today when angels stood round me – and I couldn’t even see – there were times when I was hurting – and then You stepped in and took the pain for me – and there were moments when You stopped me, Lord – so I could smell the roses by the road – and though I’m not the wisest person – there were some things that beyond a doubt I know. I know how to say ―Thank You‖ – I know a blessing when I see one – I’m a recipient of grace through the hours and the days – I know how to say ―Thank You‖.‖ Lyrics written by Suzanne and Barry Jennings Have a great March!

is exploring

God’s Creation! God created the Heavens and Earth - all you see, all you don't see. Earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness. God's Spirit brooded like a bird above the watery abyss. God spoke: "Light!" And light appeared. God saw that light was good and separated light from dark. God named the light Day, he named the dark Night. It was evening, it was morning - Day One.

God spoke: "Sky! In the middle of the waters; separate water from water!" God made sky. He separated the water under sky from the water above sky. And there it was: he named sky the Heavens; It was evening, it was morning - Day Two.

Then God said, "Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear"; and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good. It was evening, it was morning - Day Three And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. It was evening it was morning – Day Four. And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth." It was evening, it was morning - Day Five

March can mean many things to people. Hunting and fishing licenses expire at the end of the month. For Julius Caesar the soothsayers warning of “Beware the Ides of march” foretold of his demise. Now we all start cleaning the yards for the mowing season ahead. Not so many years ago March meant kite flying. Bicycles would be readied for riding and kites were popular with kids of all ages. Building your own from scratch was an adventure. Small cut willow branches, butcher paper, (complements of the Jones Brothers store), along with string, glue, scrap fabric for the tail and lots of patience, you could make a great kite. For a quarter and a dime you could purchase a kite and string from Brownbacks Drug Store. Then all you needed to assemble it and “borrow” fabric from the sewing basket. You were then ready for the winds of March. Finding a suitable location to launch the kite without trees or power lines was easy. You just hopped on your bicycle with the kite in town and rode to the South ball diamond. Running with the wind in your face and the kite behind, you ran until the kite started to soar. Once the kite caught the wind, you could let out as much string as you wanted as it soared higher. There were no cell phones or worries, just you and your friends watching the kites. After a few hours you would realize it was time to go home. You would start the long winding process with vigor. After a few minutes you slowed down and wondered why you used three rolls of string! The next day as you walked to school you might see a kite whirling around a power line or hung up in a tree! Children had been warned by parents never to fly them close to obstacles but somehow some kites ended up in strange places. It is time to “go fly a kite”. Happy Spring, Ashland! - RSD
