I am now into my third week as Director of the Homeless Shelter in our home town. We have have been so blessed to have so many wonderful folks who have stopped by and blessed us financially and with much needed items for the residents. I have worked long hard days but today I want to count my blessings and the blessings of the shelter.
The wonderful folks from our local sleep outfitters blessed us with new mattresses. The guy who drove the truck and delivered the mattresses took his day off to travel 2 hours one way to make sure we got the donated mattresses,. The owner of the local store came and helped us get the mattresses upstairs. I thank God for people who are willing to give from what they have and to give freely of their time.
On Sunday the Native American Alriders Motorcyle club had a fundraiser ride for the shelter. They were a great group and stopped by on the ride and toured the shelter. They raised over $500.00 for the shelter.
The 4th grade class of Central Baptist Church in Corbin Ky brought new Bibles and toiletries for the residents. Several of our residents needed Bibles. It was so wonderful to see the excitement on their faces. They each had their Bibles in Bible study this morning.
We take so many things for granted. Most of us have several Bibles. We can take a bath or shower when we want. We get to lay down in a warm comfy bed. We may not be wealthy but we have what we need. There are those who do not have these things. Today I am thankful......
I am thankful for those who are willing to give to others.
