A hug is like a boomerang – you get it back right away. (Bil Keane)
That’s what people do who love you. They put their arms around you and love you when you’re not lovable. (Deb Caletti)
I have learned that there is more power in a good strong hug than in a thousand meaningful words. (Ann Hood)
Hugs can do great amounts of good especially for children. (Princess Diana)
My favorite part of the week is Sunday lunch. There is always a great meal with my family and friends. We gather around the table. We talk. We laugh. It’s a tradition.
While you are going about your busy life, don’t forget to spend some time making memories.
- Hang out with family and friends
- Take a walk
- Go to a local museum
- Go to a park
- Spend time in nature
- Drive in the country
- Have a picnic
- Play board games
- Fly a kite
Whatever it is you decide to do, have fun and make a memory.
I live in Alabama, so there is no shortage of churches in the area. There seems to be a church on every corner.
A little over a year ago, I started attending The Brook Church in Madison, Alabama. I keep going back for several reasons.
I have been able to make friends there. I enjoy the services and being involved with the children’s ministry. I love attending the missional community groups that the church sponsors.
Those things are great, but they are not the main reasons I think The Brook is the best church for me.
I continue to learn new things when I attend church on Sunday and during missional community group meetings. I also feel inspired to be a better person. I am constantly growing and trying to improve myself. I want to be willing to forgive others and be willing to apologize when I have done wrong. I want to be honest and have moral integrity. I want others to see me as someone with good character traits.
I still have areas of my life that need improvement and I make a lot of mistakes. However, I am always trying and The Brook is helping me to achieve my goal of being a better person and a better Christian.
