Warm Toes & A Thankful Heart

 

1429. 2858. 28,580.

That’s how many pairs of socks, warm feet and happy little toes were covered last week by the Bless a Sole in Need sock drive.  We’ve divided them up and delivered them to Operation Blessing of Johnson County in Cleburne and to Harvest House in Burleson to give away to families in need this holiday season.  Thank you for your generosity and for going out of your way to help.

That’s just one of the many things I’m thankful for this season.  I’m also thankful for your prayers for my mom and the rest of my family.  Doctors have confirmed its cancer, both in her right lung and three lymph nodes in her neck. They’ve scheduled a whole battery of tests for the week after Thanksgiving to determine what type, where it’s located and what her treatment options are.  We’ll spend a quiet Thanksgiving together with family and then get back after it.  Your prayers for her and my family are greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your involvement this past year on 88.3 the Journey.  I’m excited about the year to come.  And finally, let me wish you and yours a blessed and happy Thanksgiving.

It's Been One Year

I still shake my head sometimes at the events that led me back to Texas. And yes, I still have days of “What was I thinking when I thought I could do all this?” But given all of that, I wouldn’t take anything for the year we’ve been together on the Journey.

Hard to believe it’s been a year. But it truth, we’re really just getting started. Our first activity together for the community is underway in the “Bless a Sole in Need” sock drive for Harvest House and Operation Blessing. This is just the first of what we hope are many opportunities to work together for the Kingdom.  We’ll be on the lookout for other opportunities in the months to come.

And as we head into November and the Thanksgiving season, I want you to know how thankful we are you have chosen to walk with us. Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for volunteering. Thank you for your financial support. Thank you for telling your friends, neighbors and co-workers about the Journey. That’s how the ministry will continue to grow and be a blessing and inspiration for years to come.

Seek First the Kingdom

I hate to admit it, but I’m having trouble seeking first the kingdom of God. I’m worried about whether I have the energy to be a student.  I’m worried about finances, both my own and at The Journey.  I worry about my sons on their own without mom and dad nearby.  I’m worried about the economy and the political situation in our country. I have to face it. I’m worried about stuff today and I’m especially worried about stuff for tomorrow and the day after.

Two thousand years ago, Jesus stood on a hill and talked to the children of Israel, who were worried about their families, their jobs, their economy and the Roman oppressors walking their streets.  Jesus said the pagans run after these things, but the Father knows you need them.  Seek Him first and He’ll take care of the rest.  And then He says not to worry about tomorrow too quickly, since today has enough trouble of its own.

Thanks for listening to me whine.  Thanks for praying for me.  Now I think I’ll spend some time seeking.  Can you tell I’ve been a little lax recently?
