The Blessings of Faith
Sometimes when life has beaten you and the future’s all but bright. There’s a blessing in just having faith that things will turn out right.

The Bend In The Road
Sometimes we come to life’s crossroads and view what we think is the end. But God has a much wider vision and he knows that it’s only a bend. The road will go on and get smoother and after we’ve stopped for a rest, the path that lies hidden beyond us is often the path that is best. So rest and relax and grow stronger let go and let God share your load and have faith in a brighter tomorrow. You’ve just come to a bend in the road.
The family wishes to thank everyone for their acts of kindness showed toward them in the loss of their mother. May God Bless you one and all.
