Story of the Week
Just Old Pencils!
(Author Unknown)

A Pencil Maker Told The Pencil 5 Important Lessons Just Before Putting
It In The Box:
1.) Everything You Do Will Always Leave A Mark.
2.) You Can Always Correct The Mistakes You Make.
3.) What Is Important Is What Is Inside Of You.
4.) In Life , You Will Undergo Painful Sharpenings, Which Will Only Make You Better.
5.) To Be The Best Pencil, You Must Allow Yourself To Be Held And Guided by The Hand That Holds You.

We all need to be constantly sharpened. This parable may encourage you to
know that you are a special person, with unique God-given talents and
abilities. Only you can fulfill the purpose which you were born to accomplish.
Never allow yourself to get discouraged and think that your life is insignificant and
cannot be changed and, like the pencil, Always remember that the most important
part of who you are, is what's inside of you.

Pastor's Quote of the Week
As you map out the future, do it in pencil. The road ahead is as long as you make it.

(From: Jon Bon Jovi, Speech at New Jersey University )

The Prayer
Dear God,        
        Thank You for You're Perfect Infinite Understanding!

You ALL are Within the Infinitely Loving Embrace of our Universal Parent,

The Creator's Eternal Love to all of You,
Pastor Daniel
