First Easter

The very first Easter was not in a crowded worship space with singing and praising.  On the very first Easter, the disciples were locked in their house.  It was dangerous for them to come out.  They were afraid.  They wanted to believe the good news they heard from the women, that Jesus had risen.  But it seemed too good to be true.  They were living in a time of such despair and such fear.  If they left their homes, their lives and the lives of their loved ones might be at risk.  Could a miracle really have happened?  Could life really had won out over death?  Could this time of terror and fear really be coming to an end?

   Alone in their homes, they dared to believe that hope was possible, that the long night was over and morning had broken, that God’s love was the most powerful of all, even though it didn’t seem quite real yet.  Eventually, they were able to leave their homes, when the fear and danger had subsided, they went around celebrating and spreading the good news that Jesus was risen and love was the most powerful force on earth.

  This year, we might get to experience a taste of what that first Easter was like, still in our homes daring to believe that hope is on the horizon.  Then, after a while, when it safe for all people, when it is the loving choice, we will come out, gathering together, singing and shouting the good news that God brings life even out of death, that love always has the final say!

Christine Broeker, Rehab Secretary, writes . . .

A group of elementary school age children were asked the following question – Why God Made Moms?

Why did God make mothers?
1.  She’s the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.
2.  Mostly to clean the house.

How did God make mothers?
1.  He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.
2.  Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.
3.  God made my Mom just the same like he made me.  He just used bigger parts.

What ingredients are mothers made of?
1.  God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and  one dab of mean.
2.  They had to get their start from men’s bones.  Then they mostly used string, I think.

Why did God give you your mother and not some other Mom?
1.  We’re related.
2.  God knew she likes me a lot more than other people’s moms like me.

What kind of little girl was your Mom?
1.  My Mom has always been my Mom and none of that other stuff.
2.  I don’t know because I wasn’t there, but my guess would be pretty bossy.
3.  They say she used to be nice.

Who’s the boss at your house?
1.  Mom doesn’t want to be boss, but she had to because dad’s such a goof ball.
2.  Mom.  You can tell by room inspection.  She sees the stuff under the bed.
3.  I guess Mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do than dad.

If you could change one thing about your Mom, what would it be?
1.  She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean.  I’d get rid of that.
2.  I’d make my Mom smarter.  Then she would know it was my sister who did it and not me.
3.  I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on her back.

Sarah Dolbeare, Director of Support Services writes…..

  I am pleased to introduce the ladies who work at the Front Receptionist Desk here at Good Samaritan Home.

  • Nancy is our Lead Receptionist.  She works 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. 
  • Peggy is our Evening Receptionist working 3:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • Luanne and Brenda switch off working every other weekend 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  They both are new to Good Samaritan Home. 
  • Cheryl works every weekend evening from 3:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
  • Janet is a backup receptionists that graciously serves as needed.

  These ladies are continuously busy answering phones, paging, selling meal tickets, stamps, cards, placemats, garbage stickers, etc.  They also help with sign-ups for activities, distribute paychecks, assist with mailing packages, make reservations for the Perry Suite, hand out applications for employment & application packets for the Home/Cottages, offer information and directions for guests and residents, make copies for people (10¢) per copy, do a variety of computer work — plus various other duties. 

  In addition to the receptionists, I would also like to introduce the people who take care of our mail.

  • Lee is our Lead Mailman who works Monday – Friday sorting and delivering mail.
  • Janet sorts our mail on Saturday and fills as needed.

  We are very blessed to have such a wonderful team of people to assist you at the Front Desk.
