Things to be thankful for.

Hopefully you didn’t have the opportunity to observe the Church sign this past Monday. Apparently, during the wee hours of the morning some industrious vandals took the opportunity to change the lettering on our church sign from an announcement about our summer day camps to various profanities.
I discovered their work when I went into the office on Monday and frantically removed the letters before they could be seen by any more folks travelling up the Hammonds Plains Road. As I was pulling the letters down, I marvelled at the effort and risk that the miscreants expended to put them up. It is amazing what we are willing to do and willing to risk in order to do wrong.
I also paused to be thankful; first, that it was a holiday Monday, so there wasn’t as much traffic as there could have been. And secondly that a couple of members of the community, who I don’t know, went out of their way to contact us and let us know about the incident so we could remedy the situation as soon as possible. It is nice to know that there are people out there who still care. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
