Sometimes it's hard to know what to do with all God's blessings. I've been praying for stuffed animals and got 96 more on the yard sale circuit this morning. When I got home at noon I loaded the 8 cartons of shoe boxes I picked up on Wednesday into the back of the van. Then I went to visit my mother (and out to lunch with her and my sister) and finally stopped to unload the van at Wesley Church.
I was so proud of myself for getting my van and most of my house cleared out and getting everything stored in the church storage area.
When I got home there was a message from DSW Shoe Warehouse that they had more boxes for me. No time to pick them up then as I was headed to Grace Church for the 5:30 service. After a fantastic time of worship with a clear presentation of God's truth I made the shoe box run and picked up 7 more garbage bags full of boxes.
The blessings never stop. Sometimes I'm amazed when I ponder the fact that each of these boxes that I haul and fill will end up in the hands of a child somewhere far away. God, thank You for the privilege of being able to serve with Operation Christmas Child.
