Happy Birthday’s and Anniversaries to all

A thought for today: There is no greater satisfactory feeling at the end of the day, that of knowing that we have done our best.

Our love and deepest sympathy goes out to the families, who lost a loved one recently.

We solicit your prayers for the sick and shut-ins everywhere.

Go to a church of your choice this Sunday, and May God Richly Bless each of you.
