There is nothing like going out to bless others and being more blessed in return. Our church held it's second annual Thanksgiving outreach to the community on Thursday. Turkeys, sides and love were all donated to the church and served to our neighbors from 9am-1pm. My husband and I were privileged to have had the opportunity to be part of this event.
The best part was not the feelings we received from being able to extend generosity to those less fortunate, but looking forward to meeting those in the future who will become part of our fellowship because they were touched by events such a these.
Pray for those who came out to the event, that they will not be able to forget the love they felt from so many who gave from their time and resources to reach out to others.
We all tend to have those plans, goals, projects, dreams...
"moments"... that we contemplate "one day" accomplishing. If there is one thing I have learned from accompanying my father through his journey with terminal illness is that life is fleeting. I'm purposing to embrace every moment and delight in the verifiable truth that we could live abundantly if we will only live now. I'm going to work on those unfinished projects. I'm going to share the love of Christ with strangers. I'm going to love like I've never loved before. I'm going to delight in the moment.
