“Rose” works in a day-care center. Every day when she drives to work, she likes to sing HU, which is a love song to God.
When she got to work one day, she found she was to be in charge of twelve children, ages two to three. She gathered up her little flock and joined the other children and teachers outside. As the little kids began to play and enjoy themselves, Rose found a quiet spot where she could keep on singing HU.
While she was singing HU, along came a moth.

A friend once gave me a plant as a gift and said, “First, you need to learn to look after a plant; then, you graduate to an animal; and finally, you will be ready for a child.”

I woke up one morning to a beautiful snowfall. Thick flakes of snow falling reminded me of love all around.
I decided to take a ride to see the Temple of ECK, the spiritual center of Eckankar, which was being built in Chanhassen, Minnesota, at the time. How would this sacred building look during its first snowfall?
