It’s time to remind everyone that as the temperatures are now cooling off outside, those little creatures called mice begin to look for warmer places to inhabit! So let’s all be sure to keep our food items in sealed containers so we don’t attract those little things!

Today, we remember September 11 and we continue to pray for all who mourn anywhere this day because of the pain and loss through this tragedy. Read ‘A Prayer for the Anniversary of 9/11′ by the Rev. Jeremy Pridgeon
O God, our hope and refuge,
in our distress we come quickly to you.
Shock and horror of that tragic day have subsided,
replaced now with an emptiness,
a longing for an innocence lost.
We come remembering those who lost their lives
in New York, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania.
We are mindful of the sacrifice of public servants
who demonstrated the greatest love of all
by laying down their lives for friends.
We commit their souls to your eternal care
and celebrate their gifts to a fallen humanity.
We come remembering
and we come in hope,
not in ourselves, but in you.
As foundations we once thought secure have been shaken,
we are reminded of the illusion of security.
