Greetings:  President Elect Jim Rowe

A man is trying to understand the nature of God, and asked him: "God how long is a million years to you?"  God Answered: "A million years is like a minute." Then the man asked: "God, how much is a million dollars to you?"  And God replied: "A million dollars is like a penny."  Finally the man asked" "God, could you give me a penny?'  And God said, "In a minute."
 
We have to extend a sincere Thank You to Carolyn Billick of the Rocky River Assistance Program for sharing their story and for giving us ideas where we may be able to help.  She sent me the following:

Time is relative, and it seemed like it took forever to get to our auction, and then it was over in the blink of an eye.  Now, we are approaching the the end of February and looking forward to hearing from Kristen Broadbent about the new "Three Arches Foundation".  I am sure she will share how the former Lakewood Foundation became Three Arches with new and exciting future.
 
Looking forward to a great week and don't forget our Lutheran School connection....they are having BLOOD DRIVE Tuesday March 6....reach out to sfuchs@lutheranswest.com  for more information.
 
Respectfully,
Jim
