Week after week the "garden club" at Grace Church continue making improvements on the grounds.
Trimming trees, weeding the gardens, mowing the lawn.
Though a small group, they are making a difference.
This is the characteristic of our work here at Grace Church, through our mission Nazareth House Apostolate.
Many times people believe that our big flashy, highly noticed actions are what make the difference in life.
But it is the consistent little acts that we do for the love of Him that make the real change.
Walking down from the hermitage towards the church this afternoon,
I stumbled upon Norman Jefferies as he pruned trees. At first I didn't see him because he had
climbed up to reach the higher branches.
Yesterday, Carol South weeded the garden area by the parish house doors as Jerry Reinstedler removed tree limbs, sawed them up. He mowed the grass the day before.
We are most thankful for the hard work and effort the garden club gives each week.
With the recent regular rains, the flowers are lush, waiting for their display on the altar each Sunday.
