365-359-361 Christmas Day
Wow! Christmas flew by in a heart beat! I am still trying to grasp that it is over. Soon my decorations will be down and we will be back to school. In some ways, I look forward to it, in others, not so much. What a blessed Christmas we had this year. We were able to get out of our comfort zone and do something different this year. On Christmas morning, we served breakfast at a women's shelter. We actually were up and out of our house EARLY! We got there at 5:00 am to set up and then the ladies and precious children came down to eat. We were able to serve and share with them. So many hurting lives.... One, it causes you to wonder "why" and "how" and then it comes down to Romans 3:23- We have ALL fallen short of the Glory of God. Some of us, just hide it better than others. These ladies come from all walks and races. Who knows what has happened to them in their lives either by their own choices or by sins from others. All I know is that they need JESUS!!! I need JESUS!!!! It was a privilege to serve along side my children, husband and friends. It is an honor to serve my King!
When we got home, we did our usual gifts, breakfast and time with family. But the faces of the ladies, the children and the conversations with them will NEVER leave my heart and my mind. Lord Jesus, use ME!!!!
He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. Proverbs 14:31 NIV
The pictures are not very good, because I was in a hurry and I had my daughter's camera. Oh, well..... you can get the drift....
