If you didn’t begin on the first, grab a notebook, your Bible, and a pen.  You can be caught up in a couple hours.  The link to the Scripture is for those who prefer to copy from the computer or phone.  I suppose that may even help some people with size of the text.

Some of you will have dresses to donate.  Others may want to help meet other needs. Maybe this information will be helpful to some young parents.  Use it if you heart or life is touched.

I trust this post, as well as all the others, leaves you with something that has touched your heart.
