There is an old European story about a traveler who came upon a barn where the devil had stored seeds which he planned to sow in the hearts of people. There were bags of seeds variously marked “Hatred,” “Fear,” “Doubt,” “Despair,” “Un-forgiveness,” “Pride,” “Greed,” etc.
The devil appeared and struck up a conversation with the traveler. He gleefully told the traveler how easy the seeds he sowed sprouted in the hearts of men and women.
“Are there any hearts in which these seeds will not sprout?” the traveler asked.
A melancholy look appeared on the devil’s face. “These seeds will not sprout in the heart of a thankful and joyful person,” he confessed.

GIRL SCOUT SILVER AWARD
It is official! Kendall, Makayla, and Emma, are Silver Award Girl Scouts! With their Silver Award Project, called Whisper to Success, they have earned the second-highest award available in Girl Scouting. Way to go Girl Scouts!
As part of earning the Girl Scout Silver Award they built nearly 600 whisper phones and distributed them to the Kindergarten students at the Enterprise Early Education Center. Whisper phones are simple reading tools made out of PVC pipe. Each girl put in over 50 hours of work building the phones and spreading the word about the benefits of using whisper phones to help young children become more confident readers.
To learn more about their project, please visit their website: https://whispertosuccess.wordpress.com/
Thank you to everyone who has supported the girls in their project, especially the Skelton Foundation who made it possible to build a phone for every Kindergartener in town.
