Sara’s Notes

By Sara Givens

Resisting life’s situations leads to sadness, hopelessness and a sense that nothing has a purpose. Trust life and let it unfold as it will, knowing that a loving God is in control and knows what is best for us … Just saying.

Hello to Mr. Eugene Jones. Family and friends want to know how you are doing. Mr. Jones is 95 years old.

Thought for the week: Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.
