morning, we are having our January Cooperating Hearts Awards ceremony
since we were out due to inclement weather the last Friday of January.
We hope the weather cooperates this time. The other addition is Dental

him, based on ‘faith and love’. Our faith tells us god is not just ‘the
Lord our God.’ He is our Father. This changes the kind of hope and love
