church.family1Spiritual Living: A prayer to enable one to “drink deep of the living waters”

Magnified be Thy Name, O Lord my God!  Thou art He Whom all things worship and Who worshipeth no one, Who is the Lord of all things and is the vassal of none, Who knoweth all things and is known of none.  Thou didst wish to make Thyself known unto men; therefore, Thou didst, through a word of Thy mouth, bring creation into being and fashion the universe.  There is none other God except Thee, the Fashioner, the Creator, the Almighty, the Most Powerful. 

I implore Thee, by this very word that hath shone forth above the horizon of Thy will, to enable me to drink deep of the living waters through which Thou hast vivified the hearts of Thy chosen ones and quickened the souls of them that love Thee, that I may, at all times and under all conditions, turn my face wholly towards Thee.

Thou art the God of power, of glory and bounty.  No God is there beside Thee, the Supreme Ruler, the All-Glorious, the Omniscient. –Baha’u’llah

Baha’i Faith

thanksTHANK YOU & CONGRATULATORY NOTES:

THANK YOU! My sincere thanks to the many Sherman County friends who came and listened to my comments and purchased my book “Pigs to Politics.” It was wonderful to see so many friends and visit! Also many thanks to those who have purchased my book at the Museum Gift Store. ~ Bev Clarno

THANK YOU, TED & BETTY! The Sherman County Fair Board extends a sincere and hearty expression of appreciation to Ted & Betty Sabey for their many years of volunteer service and dedication to the Sherman County Fair and the Oregon Fairs Association. Ted first became a Sherman County fair board member in 1980 and Betty volunteered as the Kitchen Division superintendent in the Open Class building, and a few years later she became the open class building superintendent.  Ted and Betty were honored as Grand Marshals in 2005.  Their over 30 years of service have not only been at the county level but also at the state level.  Ted served on many committees (Betty always at his side) of the Oregon Fairs Association (OFA) and on the Oregon Fairs Foundation Board. In 2001 – 2002 Ted served as state president of the OFA, and was honored in 2003 with a Distinguished Service award. Ted & Betty traveled thousands of miles across Oregon to attend every county fair and fairs in other states as well, making many lifelong friends.  You can ask anyone in the fair industry, new members or a veteran, if they know who Ted is and they will all say, “O yes!” and jump right into a great story about Ted. The Fair Board members thank and acknowledge Ted & Betty for their commitment and hard work in serving Sherman County and wish them the best in retirement road trips. ~ Board Chair Bryce Coelsch, Vice-Chair Shandie Johnson, members Bert Perisho, Rick Jauken Jr., Jennifer Zimmerlee, Tom Rolfe and Amanda Whitman, and Secretary Beth McCurdy.
