Weekly Inspiration

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” -Melody Beattie

Scripture & Prayer Request

Isaiah 30:15
“In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust you shall find strength.”
