December 2011 already. Hard to believe.
This past year has been full and it's finally coming to an end. I have all my presents finished and ready to go.
As I wrap each one, I pray that the person receives it with joy.
It's a busy time for everyone and we have many sick ones in our midst. Many are out of jobs and need medical help. The prayer chains have been busy and we are kept on our toes in this area of our lives.
We also have had a lot of friends who became widows and it seems there is never enough time to help enough. Jim's Marion House Soup Kitchen fed over 600 people last Friday. I worked in the basement with incoming clothing, warm winter pieces that are much needed this time of year.
The weather has been cold and the falls are iced. We are by the fire of the Holy Spirit spreading our hands in praise and receiving His warmth and encouragement. He uses our friends and loved ones.
Won't you join us these year as we lift less fortunate up to Him for comfort?
I'll serve hot chocolate with peppermint, tea, or coffee...whatever helps comfort you. If you need prayer, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm thinking of each of you special ones in my life and reminding my Father of you and your needs. He loves each of you so very much and so do I.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
