A Glow within.....


 Comes to us....

 out og the prehistoric dimness......

universal to all ages......

and all faiths........

At whatever straws.........

  we must grasp.....

 there is always a time.......

 for gratitude........

and new beginnings....     `J Robert Moskin`

A Time For Giving

The unthankful heart... discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!
Henry Ward Beecher

No longer forward nor behind
I look in hope or fear;
But, grateful, take the good I find,
The best of now and here.
