Kind hearts are the gardens. 
Kind thoughts are the roots.
Kind words are the flowers. 
Kind deeds are the fruits.
Take care of your garden
and keep out the weeds.
Fill it with sunshine,
kind words and kind deeds.
—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 A Special Thanks to our Church Secretary.

Please take time to send Barb a card or email this week to say thank you.    
Endless phone calls, you will take. Endless deadlines, you will make.
Answering questions, all day long, making sure, nothing goes wrong.
Your organization is beyond compare. Knowing exactly, what to find and where.
Your smile reaches, far and near. And tells all, they are welcome here.
