Simple, Daily Acts

"Simple, daily acts of service may not seem like much in and of themselves, but when considered collectively they become just like the one-twelfth teaspoon of honey contributed by a single bee to the hive. There is power in our love for God and for His children, and when that love is tangibly manifest in millions of acts of Christian kindness, it will sweeten and nourish the world with the life-sustaining nectar of faith, hope and charity." 
~Russell M Ballard, "Be Anxiously Engaged", Ensign, Nov 2012

 We CAN met today at Paula's home.  We collected several things: 
1) Novels for a high school class room,
 2) Crafts for the Doll House Festival Boutique and 
3) Crafts for the Mothers Without Borders Boutique
 We have begun our Festival of Trees project.  We are working on red/white ornaments for our tree, which will have a Swedish Design Theme.
