Hello God by Jennifer
Hello God, I called tonight To talk a little while... I need a friend who'll listen, To my anxieties and trials...
I thank you God, for being home, And listening to my call, For giving me such good advice, When I stumble and fall.
You see, I can't quite make it Through a day just on my own... I need your love to guide me, So I'll never feel alone.
Your number, God, is the only one That answers every time. I never get a busy signal, Never had to pay a dime.
I want to ask you please to keep My family safe and sound. Come and fill their lives with confidence, For whatever fate they're bound.
So thank you, God, for listening, To my troubles and my sorrow. Good night, God, I love You, too, And I'll call again tomorrow!

THANK YOU We would like to thank all the parents who came out to help tie skates for the classes. Many hands make a light load. From the start to the finish the students have improved so much. They should be proud of themselves, their hard work paid off. Keep skating and have fun. A great big thank you to Mrs. Whelan and Mr. Marak who were our instructors. Thank you so much for helping our children learn to skate. We appreciate your help and time.
