Noon Meeting News – October 17, 2017 – Robert J. O’Toole EMT Firefighter Award Presentation

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father you have brought us to the place you wanted us to be. Help us to do your good works. The more we do the happier we become and the more we see to do. So it stands to reason, if we want to be happy we need to do something for someone else. Happiness is contagious and is passed around and it comes back to us. We know that happiness is planting a seed where a flower will grow. Be with us Lord, as we plant
seeds of happiness. Amen!
