Serving Together

This Christmas is different. All the kids are old enough to wait for the Opening of the Gifts, take time out of our warm, joy filled day, and serve others less fortunate than us. We were looking for a way to do what Christ did and really, asks us to do as well... serve. Our sweet friends told us of an opportunity to help out with a breakfast for the homeless this morning and we were all over it. The weather was splendid. We helped make and serve breakfast, talked and visited with folks and spent time together as a family. It was a time for us to remember that no matter where you are in life, God cares. He makes a way where there seems to be no way. This ministry is a combination of various churches coming together. Each week a group of folks come together to provide food and other needs like clothes. .. not just on Christmas. God is using a random bunch of people to provide practically and opens doors to feed them spiritually. How cool is that? People give their time and resources to make a difference in other peoples lives. Isn't that the call of us all? Being the hands and feet of Jesus.
Merry Christmas
