' Let us live our lives one day at a time. Do not look back and grieve over the past, it is gone. Do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Instead, live the present to the fullest and so beautifully so that the past will be worth remembering and the future will be worth looking forward to. Stay happy because GOD loves you. With HIM all things are possible.' This profound thought was written by Karen and printed into the July 20, 2014 church bulletin.
