Count-o-rama, Name-0-rama

Thought of the day – Patience: We have had many changes with COVID-19. We always react to disruptive events in different ways and it always creates challenges as we have to adapt. We should always try to have patience with those around us as we don’t know their circumstances. We do know that we all have different challenges today than we had 3 months ago and this can create stress. We need to take a breath and try to provide a calming effect.

Prayers for services re-starting this week, sons and friends in transit and patience.



…Somewhere along the line Aqua reminded me to not be afraid to call an audible. Always good advice. I realized simplicity is also good.
