First Sunday in Lent....

The words of  Claudia F. Hernaman, 1873, seem appropriate for out thoughts today.

                                  "Lord, who throughout these forty days

                                          for us didst fast and pray,

                                   Teach us with thee to mourn our sins

                                          and close by thee to stay."

Today's Mission Focus from the United Methodist Women Prayer Calendar for 2014 is the Cunningham Children's Home, Urbana, Illinois.

May this day be one of blessings for you.

  5. I know very well where the Cunningham Children's Home in Urbana is. Champaign/Urbana is where my doctors were and where I shopped.

    A lovely verse Nellie!
