Twin Lakes Share & Prayer
Twin Lakes Share & Prayer is a group of women that meets to encourage
one another in their journey in knowing, following and pursuing God. It’s
a friendship group and a safe place for us to learn and fumble, laugh and
explore how to pray in a non-formalized, conversational manner.
For 2019, we are looking into study experience called “Faithwalking,” in
which people are increasingly following the way of Jesus, experiencing
ongoing transformation and developing effective practices for missional
living: to serve the poor, the marginalized and those in need, to work
for the common good and to restore individuals, social systems,
communities and nations to God’s design.

Faithwalking includes daily spiritual workouts tailored to one’s own
needs, exploration into understanding and reducing our own anxieties
so that we can show up in a group lowering the fears, tension and
anxieties of the group, including our own families. We develop new skills
in awareness of... and then saying what we truly think, feel and believe
without bullying, raising our voices or otherwise manipulating others or
without being bullied, manipulated or intimidated ourselves. The daily
spiritual workouts help us connect more and more deeply with God and
he prompts and directs us as we grow in this loving way of living.
We usually meet every other week at Carol Monahan or Patty Napp’s
homes. For more information, call or text Carol at 713-305-9809 or
meet up with her at the Twin Lakes weekly coffees. Her email is carol.
firstname.lastname@example.org. Patty’s contact info is 713-775-5278. This group
is open to any woman who is a resident of Twin Lakes. It might be a big
jump off of a high cliff to meet up with people you don’t know and to try
a new adventure like this! Smile big and just do it!

What to do when your neighbor’s dog won’t stop barking in Houston - Is
your neighbor’s dog keeping you up at all hours of the night and day with
its incessant barking? There is nothing worse, especially when you or
your kids are trying to sleep! Perhaps the dog barking is setting off your
dog and all you can hear all day is a chorus of bad barking? Whatever

the case is - you have rights and there are some steps that you should
take in order to get the barking to stop. You will probably want to avoid
actually confronting the neighbor as this can often end up in a rather
heated debate. You should write or type up a small note mentioning
the dog barking - nine times out of ten, the owner will be at work and
probably doesn’t even realize what is going on. Make it short, to the
point and polite - exactly how you would want someone to talk to you if
your dog was making a crazy racket! If nothing happens or the letter isn’t
in some way acknowledged you can always turn to your local housing
organization or landlord if you are renting. There will normally be noise
stipulations in rental agreements, so it is well worth finding out if your
neighbors are renting and getting in touch with their landlord as well.
You will find that most residential areas have noise control rules set
in place, so don’t be afraid to find out what your rights are. If nothing
happens from your complaint to the owner of the dog and the housing
organization, (or neither of you are renting) it’s time to take a different
approach. This time, grab some information on the noise control in
your area and print them out. Combine this in a neat little package
with another letter, basically saying exactly what the first one did, but
this time mentioning that this is the second time that you have tried to
contact them about the complaint and that you will be taking the matter
further if nothing is resolved. Again, do not be threatening or menacing
in your words or language. If you still don’t get a positive outcome from
your effort, it’s time to call the boys in blue. You will need to remember
that a dog barking situation is not always going to be a priority for your
local law enforcement agency, buy you do still have rights so you should
report the complaint. Make yourself a log of everything that has been
going on -photos or noise clips of the dog barking, times and dates and
also how long the barking goes on for, all copies of the correspondence
you have with the owner/neighbor etc. You will need all the evidence that
you can get your hands on in order to get your problem resolved. Get
yourself a lawyer. There are ways around this problem and if it comes to
resorting to a small claims court in order to allow your kids or yourself to
get a good night’s sleep or a nap, so be it!

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA - COPPERHEAD DISTRICT
For 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found
in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant
in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Scouting
helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership
skills, outdoor skills and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.
The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities
that allow them to:
• Try new things.
• Provide service to others.
• Build self-confidence.
• Reinforce ethical standards.
Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as
individuals while promoting activities that lead to personal responsibility
and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made,
peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made.
Scouting provides a rewarding experience for boys ages 5 to 21. Scouting
through the local Packs and Troops teach outdoor and life skills which help
our youth Be Prepared. Your area is serviced by the BSA Sam Houston Area
Counsel - Copperhead District which includes 23 Cub Scout Packs (boys 5
to 10 years old), 13 Troops (boys from 11 to 18 years old) and 10 Venturing
units (boys and girls from 14 to 21). Our Units typically meet weekly.
Many of our units are supported by the local Elementary Schools
including: Birkes, Copeland, Duryea, Fiest, Hemmingway, Holmsley,
Horne, Jowell, Lowery, Metcalf, Owens, Postma, Robinson, Sheridan,
Tipps, Walker and Wilson.
Other Community groups include: Autumn Creek Baptist Church,
Beck and Masten Automotive, Cornerstone United Methodist Church,
Copperfield Church, Crossbridge Church, Cy-Fair Kiwanis Club, Deerfield
Village HOA, LDS Bear Creek and Copperfield Wards, Middlegate Village
HOA, Peace Community Church, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church
and Thornton Middle School.

and the folks at St. Aidan’s have another great program planned. Scheduled
for the week of July 8 th -12 th , St. Aidan’s usually hosts about 80 children. This
year’s theme is ROAR: Life is wild. God is Good. We usually have Bahama
Bucks on the last day. That is always a big treat for our students. And, last
year, we hosted Wild Things Zoofari. They brought a wallaby, a toucan, a
lemur and a hedgehog. Everyone really enjoyed that.” Cost of VBS is $30.
Scholarships are available for families in-need. New for this year, we are
adding Triumph Sports so our students will have a full-day option. From
12-4 PM, Triumph will run a Bible-based sports camp. Participants will play
dodgeball, kickball, capture the flag, basketball, soccer and more. Early
registration for this afternoon session is $105 before June 1 st . After June 1 st ,
cost goes up to $115. Registration is already open at aidanschurch.org. For

Warm weather means our gardens and landscapes are growing fast.
Here are some tasks to keep your landscape beautiful and productive:
Flowers: Time to plant summer blooming perennials and annuals
including plumbago, zinnias, angelonia, purslane, lobularia,
sunflowers, yellow bells, pride of Barbados, duranta and bat-faced
Vegetables: May is a great time to plant, from seed or nursery plants,
okra, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, winter squash, pumpkins, basil,
peppers, lima beans, eggplant, garlic chives and Malabar greens. If
you don’t want to dedicate an area of your yard, consider planting
here and there in your flowerbeds. Edible landscaping is a popular
Lawns: Water 1/2 to 1” of irrigation per week. A rain gauge or straight
sided container (such as a tuna fish can) will help you know how long
to run your irrigation system to apply 1/2”.
Weeding: Hand pull or hoe weeds while they are still young or better
yet, maintain a 3” layer of mulch in all vegetable and flowerbeds to
deter weeds from getting a start.
Pruning: Remove spent blooms on spring and summer annuals to
promote new blooms.
Fertilizing: Fertilize flowerbeds and vegetable gardens w/slow release
Water: Deep soakings between rain events is better than frequent
Birds: Spring migration continues until mid-May. Clean bird feeders!
Replace water in bird baths to avoid creating mosquito breeding
