“The Merry Month of May”

 


The popular saying and later (song) “The Merry Month of May” has its popular beginning with a love poem written by Thomas Dekker back in 1599.  It was part of the play he wrote called “The Shoemaker’s Daughter.”  The first two lines with which we are most familiar are:

 

O, the month of May, the merry month of May,
So frolic, so gay, and so green, so green, so green!

 

This is what came to my mind when thinking about our “Golden Opportunity Days” annual celebration.  This year it is 3-19 May.  This is an annual event that had its beginning in our church possibly as long as 16-18 years ago.  It has been an exciting and uplifting adventure that we look forward to every Spring.  This year the theme is “Come to the Garden.”  The Garden, of course, is our Meditation Garden.  It is “so green, so green” and blooming with flowers.  The first day, May 3rd, we will be having an outdoor brunch following the worship service.  At 2 p.m., we will be dedicating our “Meditation Garden” to the Lord.  People from the church and community have already been enjoying it since we began serious work on its development last summer.  The community is being invited to come for the dedication.

 

Following the worship on April 12th, when my sermon topic was “The Road to Emmaus”, in which I suggested that the meditation walkway could be a place to encounter the Lord while meditating and thinking about the Lord, some of our visitors walked the Garden.  Betty Arron’s granddaughter and husband, both Air Force captains, visiting from their assignment in Okinawa, thought it was beautiful.  I’m sure they wanted and had an experience with the Lord on their personal “Emmaus Walk.”  About a month ago I met a lady at the Bull Shoals Food Pantry who told me that a friend pushes her in her wheelchair up to the Garden where she likes to sit in the swing and take in its beauty, calmness, and comfort. 

 

Begin the “Merry, Merry month of May” enjoying the activities of “Golden Opportunity Days”.  Walk the Garden.   Have a talk with Jesus there.  Enjoy the Golden Opportunity of lunch out at Sean’s Thursday with the group going there as part of our celebration.  Let us always remember that through our faith in Jesus Christ every day can be a Golden Opportunity of encounter with Him.

 

God bless!  Fred
