Blessed always, Blessed always
For the love of God surrounds us
Let our joy be so triumphant
That we rest in God & say Amen
Giving Thanks for Abundance
is greater than abundance itself. 
Thanks to Patrick Harrigan’s efforts & your generosity, Hafal Edo's eye operation was successful; however, we are yet $1300 short of the sum owed to the eye hospital plus the family's related expenses. Hafal’s bandages have been removed & he is wearing glasses. His eyesight was saved! If you have not yet contributed, please click on Hafal's photo to donate. This poor Yezidi refugee family needs our help!

Last year's Thanksgiving Dance
We receive this Bounty
singing Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
One breath, one body,
One Light in all,
One cup of blessing
which we share.
And we, though many,
Throughout the earth,
We are one body in this one Love.
The one who can quicken the feeling of another to Gratitude,
adds to her own life.
