Dear Lord. . . Thank you for the gift of life which you have given me through my mother. I also thank you for the time and love she has given me during my life. Bless mothers everywhere with love, patience, understanding, and strength to carry out their special work. Lead children everywhere to be thankful for their mothers. And keep families everywhere faithful to your Word. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
“I see children as kites. You spend a lifetime trying to get them off the ground. You run with them until you're both breathless. They crash. They hit the rooftop. They get tangled in trees. You patch and comfort, adjust and teach. You watch them lifted by the wind and assure them that someday they'll fly. Finally they are airborne: they need more string and you keep letting it out. But with each twist of the ball of twine, there is a sadness that goes with joy. The kite becomes more distant, and you know it won't be long before that beautiful creature will snap the lifeline that binds you together and will soar as it is meant to soar, free and alone. Only then do you know that you did your job” (author unknown).

Your Change can Change a Child's Life
We've all heard the expression that “children are our future.” If you believe this is true, then join the campaign of the Community Life Committee, “Your Change can Change a Child's Life.” Beginning Sunday, May 2nd, drop your spare change into the change-collection jar located in the dining hall. We will continue to collect your spare change on Sundays until Thanksgiving at which time we will donate the contributions to the Illinois Masonic Children's Home in LaGrange. This organization helps children facing abuse, abandonment and neglect; those with family difficulties; those suffering from depression; and those living in poverty, among other issues. The mission of the Illinois Masonic Children's Home is to provide a positive and safe living environment for the children they serve. Remember, “your change can change a child's life.”
