    A Love Letter... to the Army of Angels from HBC:

    Last week, and particularly on

    Saturday, an "Army of Angels"

    descended on our house and

    packed, boxed up, and trans-

    ported books, linens, CD's, cut

    glass, china and other kitchen

    equipment to the new house,

    and even brought food to sus-

    tain the other angels.

    Said Angels included Beth and

    Doug Heard, Jim and Judy

    North, Bonnie Madre, Susan

    McCauley, Alystra Barefoot,

    Susanna McKendree, Jane and

    Roy Austin, Frank and Mary

    Jane Ransom, and Jane and

    Pat Garvey. We actually

    looked up the hierarchy of an-

    gels, but it got too complicat-

    ed, so we have to assume each

    category was properly repre-

    sented! We are grateful be-

    yond words, and are touched

    by your thoughtfulness and

    caring.

    Love from,

    The Month of April

    "The sun was warm but the wind was chill.

    You know how it is with an April day,

    When the sun is out and the wind is still.

    You're one month on in the middle of May,

    But if you so much as dare to speak,

    A cloud comes over the sunlit arch.

    And wind comes off a frozen peak,

    And you're two months back

    In the middle of March."

    ~ Robert Frost, 1926~

    Promises of Spring

    "That God once loved a garden We learn in Holy writ. And seeing gardens in the Spring I well can credit it." ~ W. M. Letts ~

    April Showers Bring May Flowers.

    "The April rain, the April rain,

    Comes slanting down in fitful showers, Then from the furrow shoots the

    grain, And banks are fledged with nesting flowers; And in grey shawl

    and woodland bowers The cuckoo through the April rain

    Calls once again."

    ~ Mathilde Blind ~

    And on the Seventh Day, He got paid.

    In church, my three-year-old insists on being the one to put the

    money into the collection basket. One Sun- day, as the basket came

    toward him, he held out the envelope and asked aloud, "When is God

    coming to pick up his paycheck?"

    ~ Chris A., Mo. ~

    I Know that Lady. We ran into our minister at the mall, but my son

    couldn't place her. It was only later that it hit him. "I know that lady," he said.

    "She goes to our Church."

    ~ Charles S., St.Louis, Mo. ~

    Spring: "If Spring came but once in a century, instead of once a year

    or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake, and not in silence,

    what wonders and expectations there would be in all hearts to behold

    the miraculous change! But now the silent succession suggests nothing

    but necessity. To most men only the cessation of the miracle would be

    miraculous and the perpetual exercise of God's power seems less

    wonderful than it's withdrawal would be."

    ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ~
