Do you know a senior who has a wish?  Let us grant a wish for a senior in your congregation this year!  The Make a Wish Come True Program grants "wishes" to seniors in the Lincoln area!  Wishes such as concert tickets, special meals, trips to visit family, or a night at the movie have been granted.  We encourage Lincolnites to submit nominations on behalf of a senior who is in need of a special favor.  Submit your nomination on our website today! www.lincolncoahp.com

                      STRESS AWARENESS MONTH

Nurse Kari Bartholomew has a few tips for keeping stress free.  First of all eating right is a great way to start, eating foods that are healthy and low in carbs.  Exercising, stretching, yoga and walking daily.  Close your eyes, picture a relaxing scene and take 3 long slow breaths.  Smile!!  If were having a stressful day smiling can make us calmer and more relaxed.  Focus on being proactive and don't wallow in self pity.  Take a time out, count to ten or look away.  Stop tying to please everyone and remember it is ok to say NO!!  Say it out loud, saying "I feel stressed", recognizing your personal stress helps in managing stress.  Say a little prayer, laugh alot, listen to music, call a friend, goof off or tip toe through the tulips.  Stress is a fact of life, but being stressed out is not so try a few of these tips today.

     EASTER WISHES

 

Oh!  what a beautiful morning! I've just dropped in to say.  I hope you have a beautiful and wonderful Easter Day!!

Flowers are blooming everywhere, bird songs are in the air.  Spring is unfolding her treasures and wants us all to share.  

Easter gives hope for tomorrow, as after the winter comes Spring.  Our hearts can be filled with gladness, as our hearts rejoice and sing.
