  1. What lovely ideas! Also…what other things can people think of to do? Leave coupons you don’t use on the products in the stores? Write a note of appreciation for those in your sphere of influence who might not know they are loved? “And let us consider how to stimulate one another toward good works…” Hebrews 10: 24 Thank you Farah!!!
