"One benefit of summer was that we had more light to read by."  (Jeanette Wells, The Glass Castle)

"Prudence, knowledge, patience, and courage will follow in their places, but zeal must lead the van. It is not the extent of your knowledge, though that is useful; it is not the extent of your talent, though that is not to be despised; it is your zeal that shall do great exploits."
(C. H. Spurgeon)

HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!!
