Goodbye, Snow!
Snowman, Snowman,
Tall and white,
Melting from the warm sunlight.
Bittersweet to see you go-
Hello, spring.
Goodbye, snow!

Sunday Matinee: Soul Surfer
A natural talent in the sport of surfing, teenager Bethany Hamilton (AnnaSophia Robb) loses an arm in a shark attack. Bolstered by the love of her parents (Helen Hunt, Dennis Quaid) and refusing to give up, she plans to return to competition, although questions about her future continue to trouble her. Upon seeing the devastation in Thailand caused by the 2004 tsunami, Bethany discovers a greater purpose: to make a difference in the lives of others.

Laughs of the Week
Why couldn’t the pony sing a lullaby?
She was a little horse!

What did the left eye say to the right eye?
Between you and me, something smells!

Weekly Inspiration

“For a long time, it seemed to me that real life was about to begin, but there was always some obstacle in the way. Something had to be got through first, some unfinished business; time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”  –Bette Howland

Scripture & Prayer Request

Psalm 90:12
“Teach us to number our days so that we may get a heart of wisdom.”
