Thank you Mr. Speaker, as the budget process continues in this great assembly, I'd like to share with you some words from the Apostle Paul to the church in Corinthian to us today and then I will show you the most excellent way, if I speak in the tongues of men, and of angels but have not love, I'm only a resounding gong or a clanging symbol. If I have gift of prophecy and can fair them all mysteries and all knowledge and I finally have a faith that can move mountains but have no love, I'm nothing if I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind it does not envy it does not boast. It is not proud, it is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered. It keeps no records of wrongs. Love doesn't not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects always trusts always hopes always preserves. " And further on he says "now these things remain faith, hope and love, but the greatest of these is love. " Let us pray. Dear heavenly father again we just thank you so much for this wonderful day this time you have given us together in your name. Lord again as this budget process continues in greatest name Lord I pray that the gifts that you have given each and everyone of these men and women here today Lord I just pray that you'll bind them together in love let them use those talents that you have so graciously given them and Lord after all is said and done may you receive all the glory and the honor and it's in Christ name I pray amen. Amen,  I pledge allegiance to flag of the United States of America and to the republic which stands one nation under God one Nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all. one Nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
