“If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? But in fact, God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body.” 1 Corinthians 12: 17-20
Thanks are given to God for each of you. You are uniquely and wonderfully made and it is a blessing to be in service with such a dynamic team of sisters and brothers.
