15 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. 

16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

~2 Corinthians 4:15-16~

Despite Covid-19 in 2020, the “shoebox”drop-off site at FBC, Kentwood is doing well. Thanks to all of you who planned, shopped, packed, prayed over, and delivered shoeboxes. Today, we will receive boxes from 4-6 P.M. Monday, we will be receiving boxes from 8-10 A.M. Then, after placing the boxes in large cartons, we will deliver our final boxes to Hammond, the only stop that will make before going to Dallas, and then shipping out to boys and girls around the world. Thank-you to each one of who who packed shoeboxes. We’ve been blessed to function as a drop-off site again this year.

Thankfulness – Day 22

Prayers of thanksgiving cannot be complete without thoughts of our beautiful environment. Today, I’m thankful for the everyday beauty and colors God provided for us. It is good to enjoy from windows of our houses or cars, but seems so much clearer when we are outside and enjoying the warmth of the sun or the crispness of our fall breezes. Sunshine is good for our bodies, so get out and enjoy being alive today. We not only have the golden fall colors, but also some pink, red, purple, blue. and white flowers in our yard. Of course, green is always there too. Notice all the creatures busy at work so they can survive the cold temperatures ahead. A fire pit is a real blessing too. If you will purposely consider the beauty of our environment/God’s creation at this time of the year, you will be blessed. I’m especially thankful to be living in a rural setting and not in big city.

Have an extra special day today.
