“Taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.” ~ Psalm 34:8
I am always happy when we reach the end of January; to me it seems like the longest month of the year. The holiday celebrations are over, the days are short and cold, we’re dealing with winter weather conditions (although this year has not been too bad), and we need to think about getting our taxes done by April 15th! And through all of this, we are blessed because we are able to see how good God is, and take refuge in Him, all the time.
And now that we have reached the end of the month, we will see the days begin to fly by . . . soon we will have April Showers and May Flowers; God is good!
Blessings . . .

Please Pray For:
~ this ministry to be all that God has planned, and for our Board members to seek God’s wisdom and discernment regarding upcoming decisions.
~ a time of rest (and refuge in God) for our staff and volunteers over the next few weeks as some take time for vacations; as well as for safe travel and God’s blessings to pour forth.
~ Our Agape Angels by name: Anna, El, Ella, Emma, Farica, Grace, Hannah, Haylee, Jay, Kira, Laura, Megan, Savanah, Tessa and Vanna; that they seek God’s refuge and truly taste and see that the Lord is good!
Praise God For:
~ patience as we implement new ways to help our girls be successful in reaching their goals – God is good.
~ our volunteers who give endless hours helping the girls to see the goodness of God, as they overcome hurdles in their lives – God is good.
~ all who have helped provide so many items on our never-ending Wish List – God is good!
