Deuteronomy 28:1-14
Today’s Key Verse:  Deuteronomy 28:9
[Moses said:] “If you obey the LORD your God and do everything he commands, he will make you his own people, as he has promised.”
What does God promise in return for the people’s obedience? What does obeying the LORD’s commands mean to you?

OVER THE HILL GANG www.OverTheHillGangLHTX.Com  Something amazing is happening at OTHG. We had closed our doors because we feared for the lives of our members. The pandemic ebbed and flowed. We would, with hope in our hearts, sputter and spark trying to bring the membership back to it’s glory days. But the movement just couldn’t seem to catch fire. Many of us have grown timid, hesitant, and fearful. Then the amazing thing happened! We tried something new. We began using social media to invite people. And they came. Nearly half of the people who were there today weren’t members a month ago. It just goes to show that the roots of this twenty-four year old organization are still strong enough to bring new life to this self-funded senior center. We can still fulfill our mission to bring socialization, recreational, and educational opportunities to those who are 50+.

We had a great chicken dinner with potatoes and gravy, coleslaw, dirty rice, beans, cottage cheese, and fruit, plus an assortment of sweet treats.

Many of us learned a new card game, Five Crowns. I believe we had two tables of six players laughing and groaning as they played. We had great coaches teaching us the rules and strategies. And occasionally helping us to rearrange our cards into a better hand.

This evening at the apartments we played bingo as we always do on Thursdays. However, attendance was way down. Those of us who were there had a whale of a time.

I missed getting a sunset photo. Do I’ll just close with a goodnight and God bless.
