Pharmacist Awareness Week

To Linda Baird, Patty Beers and Betty Doberstein, who were honoured during Monday’s Women In Action Int’l Women’s Day celebration at the Civic Centre. These are the latest women to be honoured, the event has been held for the past 5 years. British Columbians are encouraged to visit their local pharmacy and talk to their pharmacist, to find out ways pharmacists can help them manage their health and prevent illness. In October of last year, the Province expanded the scope of practice of pharmacists, including the ability to renew most routine prescriptions for chronic conditions. The changes were made to increase patient access and choice. Pharmacists can also play a role in helping to prevent illness. They are able to provide advice and counselling on adopting and maintaining a healthy lifestyle and give advice on safely taking multiple prescriptions. Many offer instore blood-pressure monitoring. For more information on how your pharmacist can help you manage your health, or to find a local diabetes or asthma clinic, talk to your local pharmacist.

There’s lots of info at www.livingwatersmart.ca/ We have so much to be thankful for; first & foremost for the mercy of God on our soul, but also for our daily bread, all the necessities of life. God deserves praise from everyone, but especially from those that He has done marvelous work for. He is the only one, through His son Jesus Christ, who can cleanse our soul, make us Holy & pure. It is good news that God loves us & wishes us well. He loved us so much that He gave His One & only Son. Jesus came voluntarily, & offered salvation to the entire world. Those that believe in Jesus Christ, that love, trust, serve & obey Him, will have everlasting life & joy in heaven. God will show us His loving, forgiving & merciful spirit, if we are gentle & loving in our correction of others, & focus on our own faults first. Jesus said, “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall find mercy.” Christ gives new life to the spiritually sick. He heals those dead in their sins. He makes us whole, & offers joy & peace forever & ever. Christ died so that we could live peacefully, plentifully, joyously & victoriously! We should lead our children to obey the Lord at the earliest age of understanding. They are the dearest of His kingdom. And we cannot do better than to bring our children to the Lord Jesus Christ. Children need the Lord’s blessings, & they are capable of receiving from Him. Spiritual joy comes from knowing that the Lord loves us, & that we will be with Him in heaven forever. No one can take that joy away! Isn’t it wonderful to have Jesus watching over us, knowing that He loves, cares & protects us? The banquet table of the Lord awaits, & we shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Who could ask for anything more? In John 14:1-2 Jesus says, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.” Christ was leaving His disciples to prepare a place for them in heaven. And He was going to send the Holy Spirit to lead, guide & comfort them. Jesus is the way, the truth & the life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. —Pastor John Rankin, Merritt Baptist Church, 378-2464, johnrankin57@yahoo.ca
