The Class of '73 is proud of you!

Golden Halo of the Night Sky

Standing in the cool and quiet darkness of the night, of the whole world.
Amidst the forests of evergreens, in deep thought and prayer.
Meditating over these trying times,
What was yesterday, what is now and what might be tomorrow.

The feeling of absolute helplessness.
Our every action or lack of them, effecting the multitudes.
We are all connected,
Like the cells of life uniting us one by one.
Like the stars of the universe, in all their magnificent perfection.

In the depths of our thoughts,
The chill of the night, penetrating through our very souls.
Searching up into the sky,
The endless galaxy, the deep unknown of life and its' existence.
The stars seemed brighter then ever tonight and there it was..........
The moons' reflection parting the clouds and creating......
Creating,
The Golden Halo of the Night Sky, the Golden Halo encompassing the moon.

The Golden Halos' reflection,
Caused our minds to be quiet and our bodies to be still.
Cold and chilled, we stopped dead in our tracks,
The dire feeling of being stalked.
We were...... the virus lurking everywhere.

We stood motionless, breathless, speechless, but in total wonderment.
Losing ourselves inside this eternal abyss.
Never have we observed such a halo above the earth,
Shining its' reflections, speaking a language, a silent universal language.

Unable to speak, words would not come.
We submersed ourselves totally in the moment,
As time stood still......lost in the journey.
Sharing in this understanding,
In the cool and quiet darkness of the night...
Both of us in absolute awe,
Capturing this sense of faith and it is faith, that will get us thru this.

"The faith of knowing, it is going to be OK".
That is what Joe(my husband) said.
Was it the universe speaking to him?

"Angels in the heavens" he said
As if Gods' angels are watching over us,
Watching over the farm,
Watching over the earth,
Watching over life itself and all its connections.

The answers are in our silence,
The silence is in our stillness,
Be still, be silent, and listen....
Listen to those guiding us through these trying times

In our stillness we will have many questions.
What is our purpose now?
What will we do differently?
Where is this taking us?
What have we to learn?
How will this change us?
How will we get through this?
All the many questions we have, in a such enduring time like this.

The answers will come.......
The answers are in the cool and quiet darkness of the night...
In the Golden Halo of the Night Sky

First of all, thanks to our Sponsors! These things take money to put on and there was no padding on the ticket price. 

Second, thanks to the hardest working Reunion Committee EVER!

Third, thanks to you who attended! You are the reason. 

Fourth, thanks to those who were responsive to emails & phone calls. You lightened our load.

REFER A FRIEND PROGRAM

I have added a link at the bottom of the right margin that is automatically configured to use as a "Refer a Friend" program.  Not only is the Class Creator site used for high school classes, but for families and any group that may benefit. If we refer someone to the site and they sign up for Class Creator, a $50 check will be sent to our class!!  This is a great way to earn a little extra money and try to keep our costs down for reunions. If you know anyone that could use the service please pass along the information. To receive credit they must use the link below. If they need assistance please use the "Contact Us" button.
