    Some here at Evergreen Outreach call this their favorite time of the year. One lady remarked, “After the rains came, I saw a hint of colors on trees and bushes.”
    As the guests arrived, they noticed a beautiful floral arrangement, which was a special tribute to a special lady, Mrs. Helen Ray. Her 107th birthday will occur on Wednesday.
    Also celebrating birthdays were Erma Cameron, Sarah Laurie, Donald Macarthur and Brenda Reese.

  • Our human story begins in biblical metaphor with people (the man and the woman) together with God and the animals in tranquil and happy bliss. Our relationship to God knit us together in a fabric of love (Genesis 1, 2).
