“There is a fountain of youth; it is in your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.”

Prayer Of The Week

Children of God

What kind of Love? What kind of love is given to us from God above? That we should all be called His children. And so we are by His redemption. A transformation has begun, and now continues by His Son. The change continues day by day as we His word seek to obey. The process soon will be complete, and we shall gather at His feet. Welcomed by Him at heaven’s door to live with him forevermore.

-From Prayers From a Sinners Heart by cottager Clayton Frost

Thanksgiving Puns just for Donny…because he’s no turkey!

-My family told me to stop telling Thanksgiving jokes, but its hard to quit cold turkey! -I wanted to take home some leftovers, but all of my plans were foiled! My favorite Thanksgiving movie is Silence of the Yams!
