Lift-Up Need a Volunteer Lift Up

We need some new volunteers at our food pantries in Glenwood Springs, Rifle and Parachute, and at the thrift stores in Rifle and Parachute. If you have some time to spare, just a few hours per month would really help, and you'll enjoy it! Give us a call at 625-4496 and we'll find the right time and place for you. (Please pass this along to anyone you know that might also be interested.) Lift-Up

Walked out this morning
into a broad green garden
with the rising sun in my eyes
and the first hint of the day’s heat
touching my face,
feeling as broad as the garden
and young as the day
and soaking up the heat
in my black tee-shirt,
walked straight forward
out of the gate,
through the wood,
along the river,
toward the mountain
and thought of the future
I could make in the world
if I walked toward it
like this,
with my face toward the hills
and my eyes full of light
and the earth sure
and solid beneath me,
walking on
with a fierce anticipation,
and a faithful expectation,
with the sun and the rain
and the wind on my skin…

"Cucumbers are 95 percent water, keeping the body hydrated while helping the body eliminate toxins. They have most of the vitamins the body needs in a single day. Don't forget to leave the skin on because the skin contains a good amount of vitamin C, about 10 percent of the daily-recommended allowance. Add to some water, along with lemons and sip throughout the day!"
