Mrs. Barbara Watson’s Sunday School class is full interesting and inspiring thought.  Today, I would like to share this simple one with you.






Today, I want to share an old hymn that I remember asking a few questions about.  You too may have had to ask someone to explain “sheaves”!

“Bringing in the Sheaves”


Today is a good day to “Live, Love, & Laugh”!
