No matter what I decided to paint, it still looked good. ” Others noted that it felt rewarding to create a tangible token of appreciation for the support they receive at Calvary, and for the gifts that make that happen. Melinda told me as she painted, “This is our contribution to thank them for what they do.”  Toya agreed: “The pots are a symbol of our thanks and our hope.” HAD flower pots after So please, take a moment to enjoy these pots, and the sentiments of gratitude from which they were created.
