Nancy's photo is perfect for your patchwork of reads. Proud to be part of today's quilt. Thanks, Glynn, and Happy Saturday.

Thank you for the video "For The Beauty of The Earth" ... already shared it on my fb. One of my favorite hymns. What a beautiful arrangement... and a perfect way to settle my spirit into worship.
