Once again we come to the end of a month too quickly, just as some of our loved ones and friends have come to their end too soon. We take time to honor their memories here today:

June Houle
Isabelle Knight
John Makela
Mary Perreault
Edward "Eddie" Raffaelli
Service members who gave all

We welcome additions of those you'd like to remember here, along with us. Our thanks to Carl Schroeder for the fall sunrise photo, with which we can quiet ourselves and recall today.

What a beautiful picture. God's handiwork can't be topped. Meanwhile, here in Indiana we are waiting a storm that is promising Chicago 8 to 16 inches of snow after a good week of mid 60's.

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Thursday, November 30, 2006 - 10:17 am:

For the Prophet by Kahlil Gibran:
Then Almitra spoke, saying, "We would ask now of Death."
And he said:
You would know the secret of death. But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life? The owl whose night-bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light. If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life. For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one. In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond; And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring. Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity. Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honour. Is the shepherd not joyful beneath his trembling, that he shall wear the mark of the king? Yet is he not more mindful of his trembling? For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun? And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered? Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing. And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb. And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

By Russell E. Emmons (Russemmons) on Thursday, November 30, 2006 - 10:21 am:

Mom, I miss you so much...Remembering June Dolores Koski Houle of Hancock. Rest peacefully dear Mother...

A mighty wind blew night and day.
It stole the oak tree's leaves away.
Then snapped its boughs and pulled its bark unti the oak was tired and stark. But still the oak tree held its ground while other trees fell all around...
The weary wind gave up and spoke,
"How can you still be standing, Oak?"
The oak tree said, " I know that you can break each branch of mine in two, carry every leaf away, shake my linbs, and make me sway.
But I have roots stretched in the earth, growing stronger since my birth.
you'll never touch them, for you see, they are the deepest part of me.
Until today, I wasn't sure of just how much I could endure. But now I've found, with thanks to you.
I'm stronger than I ever knew.

(Dear family and friends, Especially now, dealing with the loss of a loved one, try to remember that you're stronger than any problem you encounter or any disappointment life will bring. Love, Lori)
