Get-well wishes to all of the sick and shut in. I hope you are well soon, up and about. You are in our prayers and thoughts for a speedy recovery.

Sympathy to all of the families who lost a loved one recently. Our heartfelt prayers and good wishes go out to all of you in your time of need. You have our deepest sympathy.

Thought for the week: It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation and only one bad one to lose it.


All the things one has forgotten scream for help in dreams. Dreams are only thoughts you didn’t have time to think about during the day. A dream which is not interpreted is like a letter which is not read.

Pay attention to your dreams. God’s angels often speak directly to our hearts when we are asleep. I am a dreamer. I have to dream and reach for the stars, and if I miss, then I grab a handful of clouds.
