thank and appreciate all the hard work that secretaries do for their employers.
Many receive flowers and are some are taken out to lunch.

Administrative Professionals Week Celebrated Since 1952:
"Employers have observed Administrative Professionals Week, formerly Professional
Secretaries Week, for nearly 50 years as a way to recognize the contributions of
administrative staff. The observance began in 1952 as an effort to honor secretaries
and other office staff for their efforts and attract more people to
office and administrative careers." Source:

What does the Bible say about WORK?
There are 487 verses with the word WORK in it.

"A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken
in due season, how good is it!"
~Proverbs 23:11~

We all have different gifts and talents that the Lord has given us. We need to be
using them for His Glory and Honor. When you are at work do you remember
and reflect the Word of God in all that you do?

"Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable
in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer."
~Psalms 19:14~

How are you using your gifts to serve the Lord?

To learn how to use them by having an Internet Ministry Visit:
Annie's Bee an Internet Missionary Page

Here are a few ideas:
1: Consider adding a web page about your secretaries to your Church's web site
as a thank you for all their hard work.
2: A Gift Certificate would be nice. Maybe one from a restaurant or beauty salon.
Flowers are an old stand by.
4: Give her a paid day off!!
5: If you do nothing else make sure you send her a greeting card. Either from a
"real" card shop or send one from
Annie's Card Shop.
6: Bring in or order lunch. Maybe a pot luck lunch would be nice.
6: Be creative you are only limited by your imagines.

REMEMBER that we all need kind words or appreciation!
"A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver."
~Proverbs 25:11~

Where's my Coffee!!!!!!!

Secretaries love coffee and for years in their job description they have had to
make the coffee for the office and for the boss!

A good cup of coffee. Best brewing results are obtained by using one standard
coffee measure, or two level tablespoons, to each cup. The water should be
freshly drawn from the cold-water tap. Most coffee is made in percolators,
drip pots, or vacuum coffeemakers, which strain boiling water through the coffee.

Coffee History
According to legend, coffee was discovered in Ethiopia when goatherds noticed that
their flocks stayed awake all night after feeding on coffee leaves and berries.
Coffee reached Arabia in the 1200's. Coffee comes from the Arabic word qahwah.

Before its use as a beverage 700 years ago, coffee was used as a food, then a wine,
and then a medicine. Coffee moved from Arabia to Turkey during the 1500's, and
to Italy in the early 1600's. Coffee houses sprang up throughout Europe in the
1600's, and people met there for serious discussions. Coffee probably came to
America in the 1660's. Coffee growing was introduced in Brazil in the 1700's.

More Coffee Information:
The United States ranks as the largest consumer of coffee. Americans drink about
400 million cups every day. The rich aroma of coffee adds much to the pleasure
of drinking it. The coffee break has become an integral part of the business world.
Each morning and afternoon, millions of workers pause for a few minutes
of relaxation over a cup of coffee.

On the average, each person in the United States drinks the brew from about 10
pounds (4.5 kilograms) of coffee annually. Each year, the United States uses
about 2,600,000,000 pounds (1,180,000,000 kilograms) or about one-fifth
of all the coffee grown in the world.

The Secretary Bird:

Secretary-bird is a tall African bird that has long feathers on the back of its head.
The bird's name comes from these feathers, which suggest the quill pens secretaries
and clerks once carried behind their ears. The secretary-bird stands over 40 inches
(1 meter) tall, with long legs and a long tail. The bird is mostly gray with black
feathers on its upper legs. Its eaglelike face is red to orange.

The secretary-bird inhabits open grass plains and steppes in Africa south of the
Sahara. It spends most of its time on the ground, walking with long, stiff strides.
The bird hunts lizards, small mammals, large insects, snakes, and eggs of other birds.
It sprints after prey and attacks with its feet and beak.

Secretary-birds build nests on top of thorny acacia trees. The nests are made of
sticks, leaves, and grass, and measure 40 to 80 inches (1 to 2 meters) across.
Females lay two or three greenish or bluish eggs. The young hatch the eggs
about 45 days later.
