Prayer Family for the Week: Leala and Niles Ledbetter.

THANKS
to all who participated in the Care Net Baby Bottle Campaign in January during Sanctity of Human Life month. We
have just been informed that the amount given from our church
totaled $393.85. Our gifts will be used to continue supporting those facing crisis pregnancies.

Want to be part of a ministry that helps to make a difference in our community? Bridges of Love NW is looking for volunteers to serve
as receptionists and answer phones from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday (one or all of the days). It involves some data entry. If interested call 253-468-6236. Thanks.


Words
Sometimes we don’t realize just how important our words are.
Words can lift us up, fill us with the courage we need to go far.
They can give us hope, encourage our faith, help us on our way,
We need Your heavenly guidance in everything we say.
But Lord, there I go, again, not letting love guide my tongue
I spoke in haste, before I prayed, and let harmful words be flung
To someone who needed kindness and the anointing of Your love
The hope of trust and understanding, of contact with God above.
So please forgive my carelessness in the words that I speak,
And fill me with Your wisdom; that is what I seek.
Please help me to apologize for words too hastily spoken
That don’t reflect Your loving heart, that can leave hearts broken,
And thank You for Your forgiveness, and love and grace so free,
That You extend to all Your children and give so willingly
