OMG Moment–

This is an OMG moment–and I mean that reverently:

I say “Oh…My God…Creator…Sustainer, and the Holy One–

Thank you, God, for all you do for us…Loving us and providing for us…

And thank you this time of year especially for your Son–Jesus Christ,

Whom we know as ‘God is With Us’–

He provided a glimpse into Your face and helped us to understand You–“

And to all our FRIENDS everywhere we say…

Forget not the season and join with us in saying:  O…MG

Merry Christmas and a Happy and Blessed New Year

I have two openings yet in the Silver Level at $30, twice a month.  If you want to sample it this week before joining, the cost is $20 for this week.  Items are 3# bag apples, bell peppers, cucumber, tub of Salad Mix, green beans, and Carnival squash (type of acorn). Give me a call today at 431-1219 if interested.

Membership gives you the option of ordering off the case-goods list for Spokane Produce–both organic and non-organic, and buying Extra’s or Lloyd Craft Farms onions, potatoes, and carrots.
