Quotes from Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997)  “What you spend years creating others could destroy overnight. Create anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.  The good you do today will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.  Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway. In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.”

Special Thanks To: Our fall coaches!  They are Bruce Vetter, Mark Trukki, Terri Hernandez, Tara Crabtree, Larry Collins and Alison Trukki. The Grandparents club for the wonderful BBQ!

Pray For: Mrs. Simas as she recovers from an appendectomy; The Lee family as they grieve the passing of their nephew; Charlie DeGrange and his family. For Mr. Miller as he recovers from a serious asthma attack.

Prayer of the DayO God, I feel empty. Please fill me.
