The Lord is benevolent and generous to his people. He fills us with good things, supports us when we fall, watches over us even when we do not know that he is there. He is our pastor, our shepherd and our guide. He is our ever constant companion. In return for such a gift try to be a good shepherd to those around you. It is the least we may do for a God who rewards us always.....Margaret Theresa Naughton
