 Granddaughter's sister took this picture.
I snapped this photo  while granddaughter was working  in the pharmacy.
3. Thursday, my soul was bolstered when I went to confession face-to-face.  I had concerns that needed being addressed and our pastor,  like all good priests I presume, is an exceptional listener.   He also gave me suggestions to help me improve my prayer time.

Brand created twenty-two murals for the building’s interior. The building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. The temple is now primarily used  by the Cornerstone Center for the Arts.   It offers classes and events for al…
