“Use what talents you possess; the woods would be silent if no birds sang but those who sing the best.”
CLUB COLLECT
Keep us, O God, from pettiness; let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
Let us be done with fault-finding and leave off self seeking.
May we put away all pretense and meet each other face to face without self-pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgment and always generous.
Let us take time for all things; make us to grow calm, serene, gentle.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses, straightforward and unafraid.
Grant that we may realize it is the little things that create differences and that in the big things of life, we are at one.
And may we strive to touch and to know the great common woman’s heart of us all, and
O, Lord God, let us not forget to be kind.
Mary Stewart.
“The new year smiles a winsome smile, And waves a hand in greeting,
And with a thrill of joy I know It is a friend I’m meeting.”

“Your mind is your garden,
Your thoughts are your seeds And you surely will harvest Either flowers or weeds.”
