The booklets are currently available and anyone interested may contact

Sunday is a special day in the life of a Christian. Enjoy here Lois’
thoughts on our Easter celebration.
Baskets are for newborn kittens
To curl into and sleep.
Baskets are for summer picnics
With home-cooked food packed deep.
Clean laundry, dry leaves,
Cut garden flowers of blue,
Warm rolls, and ripened fruit
Belong in baskets too.
Baskets are for Easter
With eggs in a grassy mound.
Baskets are for little girls
To lock their arms around.

His blood—the wine.
“Symbols,” Christ said,
Christ on the cross,
Decry the loss.
But at His tomb
A chamber bare,
Risen from doom—
Christ is not there.
Soon He appears;
Allays the fears.
Look to the cross;
Know the pathos.
Has paid the price.
God’s Son divine—
Look to the cross—
Salvation is thine.

When your seeds of love are sown
And you still feel all alone,
God will guard you night and day.
Faith calls you to take a stand;
Spread His word and lend a hand.
God will gird you come what may.
If you falter and seem lost,
God’s son, Jesus, paid the cost.
He will guide you. He’s the way.
God is good; all praise and pray.
