Yesterday was Martin Luther King Day. Here are a couple quotes that he said;
“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'”
“Everybody can be great because everybody can serve.”
Our 3rd F efforts in ’22 was bigger than the year before. My hope for ’23 is that it will be bigger than ’22. My prayer for this group that are our hearts continue to grow in the need to helpingothers. Stay Humble, Stay Hungry!
