WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS
One of the simplest and the most consoling hymns ever written is: "What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry, everything to God in prayer! Oh what peace we often forfeit; O what needless pain we bear, All because we do not carry, everything to God in prayer."
Joseph Scriven wrote this hymn in 1857. He was a Christian missionary working in Canada when he heard that his mother was seriously ill in Ireland. He could not go there to be with her. Instead he wrote a consoling letter enclosing it with the words of this hymn and mailed it to her. He offered to her in her illness the company and the comfort of Jesus. He knew that in times of illness and loneliness, there is none who can give us a better company and comfort than Jesus.
SEVEN BEAUTIFUL MESSAGES
1. Stay away from Anger it hurts only You. If you are Right, then there is no need to get Angry, and if you are Wrong, then you don't have any right to get Angry.
2. Patience with family is Love, Patience with Others is Respect. Patience with self is Confidence and Patience with God is faith.
3. Never think hard about the Past. It brings Tears... Don't think more about Future, It brings Fears... Live this moment with a Smile, It brings Cheers.
4. Every Test in our life makes us Bitter or Better, Every Problem come to Make us or Breaks us. The choice is ours whether we become Victims or Victorious.
5. Beautiful things are not always Good but Good things are always Beautiful.
6. Happiness keeps you Sweet so try and be as happy from within as possible.
7. Life is an Echo. What you send out comes back. What you Sow you Reap. What you Give - you Get. What you See in Others - exist in You. Don't Judge - so you will not be judged. Radiate and give love and love will come back to you.

MEALS ON WHEELS
We are looking to start a new ministry called " Meals on Wheels" once a week, for parishioners needing a hot meal. When I visit some of our people’s home who live alone and who depend upon canned food I felt that they deserve a good meal at least once a week. These are people mostly elderly and live alone. If you would be able to cook meals, package them up, and deliver it on a Saturday between 11:00 and 12:00 o'clock to approximately 7 people, please turn your name and phone number into the office. We are looking for 20 people or teams to get started. With 20, we would be able to rotate and only call on you once every 2-3 months. We would like to start this ministry on a trial basis soon, so if you and your family are called to cook and deliver please turn your name and phone number into the Parish Office by November 19 by calling 270-684-6888
