I want to begin this day with thankfulness,
and continue it with eagerness.
I shall be busy; let me set about things in the spirit of service to you and to my fellows,
that Jesus knew in the carpenter’s shop in Nazareth.
I am glad that he drew no line between work sacred and secular.
Take the skill that resides in my hands, and use it today;
Take the experience that life has given me, and use it;
Keep my eyes open, and my imagination alert,
that I may see how things look to others,
especially the unwell, the worried, the overworked.
For your love’s sake.
Short Prayers for the Long Day .

Good Morning Digital Neighbors & Frozen Friends! 7 Fahrenheit here in wintery New Melle. Nothing too long this morning, when it is this cold outside the house drops down into the low 60's and sometimes mid 50's if it lasts too long.

Most I know are far worse than this one. Enjoy! Happy Thursday Friends!
Bill's snowman was missing a snout
For carrots in shops had run out.
A sausage sufficed
But as it de-iced
Its purpose was cast into doubt!
Welcome guests and digital neighbors! I hope you enjoy your visits here. May this little spot become a haven for those who want to connect with others away from the toxicity of many sites.

Any community is only as good as its members, so please see the community "About" section for guidelines as to what I hope will help us enjoy our visits here.😇
Dues to changes @LOCALS this community is no longer a free community if you want to participate. I believe you can lurk about and read things, but you will be unable to post without signing up for $2.00 monthly charge. Since this changed has happened, I want all of you to know that any funds that come as a result of this community will be given to charity. I came here for community - not for profit.
The two charities I want to sponsor at the beginning will be our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry that services our New Melle Community. The other charity will...
