Words for Thought
"I have decided the two choices open to me are (1) to torment myself or (2) to trust the Lord. There is no earthly solution to the problems that confront me. But I can add to my problems, as I believe I have done, by dwelling on them. So, no more of that."
Marilynne Robinson, Gilead, 21st century

Making Thanksgiving Possible
This week Plymouth loaded up the truck (thanks to Frank, Oliver and William) with hurricane relief supplies and brought them to Opa Locka Airport to be flown to Christ of King Church in Freeport, Bahamas on the weekend before Thanksgiving. These supplies will be distributed as part of the Church's Thanksgiving feast and celebration.

Thanks to Miami Executive Aviation and its CEO, Fabio Vasquez, for this effort and for ushering the items to the Island; a true blessing!
