Thankful for… Invocation October 23, 2010

We are thankful for warm hearts
that echo with the call to serve.

We are thankful for strong hands
that do the work to serve.

We are thankful for wise heads
that consider how best to serve.

We are thankful that willing members
allow Rotary to serve the world.

    service is a topic best served and answered with gratitude. now, perhaps, i can understand why some people do their work best under a common goal.
