Her house was constantly full of children and laughter as both her dren's friends dropped in to chat over an after school snack or a delicious meal.

In the parable of the talents, reproduced on the back page of this message, the slothful servant was censured by his master for hiding his money away and not putting it in the bank, In ever3, financial pinch those least embar- rassed by it are those who saved against it-they fortified themselves against the uncertainties of the future-they sacrificed something for tomor- row's comforts, happiness and security. They who bank their money and build their cash reserves are also prepared to grasp their golden opportunities, for it is as true as as it was in time of the Great Teacher, "unto every one who hath shall be given in abundance."
