No scripture for the next few days folks. Last night, I spent at my church packing food and cosmetic boxes for the needy in the community. It was the best feeling ever. My church raised $200,000 worth of food and cosmetics for the needy for Christmas this year. So far, 350 needy families in the community are going to get a cosmetic and food box worth $300 to $400 each! 40 church members volunteered to pack all this stuff into boxes last night. We will be finishing up tomorrow, and I will be loading cars for people on Thursday. So, please forgive me if there is no scripture posts over the next few days.
Now that is what Christmas is all about to me. Donating my time and labor in the name of the Lord to help needy families have a Merry Christmas. There’s no better feeling in the world than to know I was a part of it. The Christ of Christmas is in my heart, my church, my home and my relationship with Wendy.
Pictures say a thousand words, so without further ado, let me post some that you may share the joy of Christ with me.
Just look at all this stuff! 8 full sized rooms in my church are filled from floor to about 6 feet high with food and cosmetics for the needy.
This is the kitchen area. Dozens of eggs, oranges, banannas, celery and onions here amongst other things.
40 volunteers including myself donated their time and labor in the name of the Lord to pack each box. And believe me, they were not stingy in packing them. Each box got filled with loads and loads of food and cosmetics. Over $300 in items went into each box. Each needy person will get 2 boxes, 1 full of food and a second box full of cosmetics.
And of course your friendly neighborhood Bible Man standing in the midst of it all. Just wish the guy with my camera did not shake so much lol.
I will be posting many more pictures of this event over the next few days. Just think, after this, its time to pack toys. Thats right, my church raised over $200,000 in toys for the needy as well. I will be helping pack that stuff and passing it out this weekend. So you see my readers, the next few days are going to be pretty full for me here. Forgive me, if I am a little slow at posting for the next few days. Sometimes, we as Christians have to be DOERS of the Word too! Praise God for giving me the honor of being part of this. Merry Christmas and a heartfelt THANK YOU to all who support and read this humble little blog. God Bless!
