Asking for Prayers

Patrick Harvill, while visiting here with his sister Teri and brother-in-law, Joe Winnett, came forward to ask for the prayers of the congregation. Having had to deal with health problems for many years, he requested the prayers of fellow Christians for spiritual and also physical strength. We love you Patrick; we are glad you were able to come for a visit!

About Our Holiday Fellowship:

In our bulletin last week was an article about our Dec. 2nd Holiday Fellowship and a request to those of us who would like to participate in bringing a stuffed animal or two for children in an emergency situation. Since this article was printed, Seton Hospital requested that the stuffed animals be brand new (this according the Health Department) and free of objects a child might swallow, for instance, button eyes and noses. Also, the organization in charge of this program is called “Seton Care-A-Van”. If you have any questions, please contact Norma Bryan.

 

Help Yourself to Happiness ~~ Helen Steiner Rice

Everybody everywhere seeks happiness, it’s true,

But finding it and keeping it seems difficult to do,

Difficult because we think that happiness is found

Only in the places where wealth and fame abound —

And so we go on searching in palaces of pleasure

Seeking recognition and monetary treasure,

Unaware that happiness is just a state of mind

Within the reach of everyone who takes time to be kind —

For in making others happy we will be happy, too,

For the happiness you give away returns to shine on you.
