Coaldale Centennial Homecoming

Posted on July 23, 2019 by Sunny South News

I was prompted to write this article  of the upcoming Coaldale Centennial Homecoming on Aug 3rd and 4th.

Lydia and I lived in Coaldale for the past 36 years and feel we should contribute something for this great event. I remember when the old hospital was open I took Communion to the sick there and shut ins. Mrs. Pelletier used to say to me “Do you know my son, the priest?”. We prayed the Lord’s Prayer before giving her the Host.

Hyas Sask will be celebrating 100 Years Centennial also on Aug 3rd and 4th this year.

One hundred years reminded me of my mother who was born in 1895. She celebrated her Centennial in 1995. I composed the following poem entitled “Window From Heaven”., I often think of her.

It has been 21 years Mom, since the Lord took you away

I hardly cried at your funeral

‘cause I knew His love will never stray

We sang your praises and prayed all day long

And I knew the Lord kept us in touch –

From your Window in Heaven

You watched and interceded in prayer

To keep your children safe and in His care

When Mom was watching her children

From the window at home

She always knew in her heart

That the Lord was always there.

Now, that she is still watching and praying

Until it’s time for us to share God’s Blessings

And never be alone because we pray together.
