Let’s extend ourselves again and give to causes that spread the Gospel and clothe the hurting with grace and dignity. If you need a list of places to give check out the Extension 26 list (and stay tuned for one final giving opportunity before 2014 is over).
As you know our family loves the ministry of Show Hope. About a month ago we had the incredible opportunity to go tour the Show Hope office, meet the outstanding staff and say thank you in person. We were the recipients of one of their Adoption Aid grants and we have not stopped being grateful for God’s miraculous provision to help bring our youngest home.
Would you take a moment and pray for these ladies as they give of themselves in big ways?
I have a feeling that God will multiply our small efforts in a big way; stretching our faith as we extend ourselves on His behalf this season.
After all, isn’t that what God ultimately did for us?! He gave His best, an extension of Himself in Jesus His Son; sent to earth to save our souls and restore our relationship with the Father. O come let us adore Him by the way we live!
While on vacation we ran into these wonderful people on the streets of Franklin. It was a dream come true to meet the Chapmans and personally thank them for helping us bring Strong One home via Show Hope. Steven and our youngest were both wearing the same shirt; priceless.
As our way of giving back to you we are giving away Mary Beth’s book Choosing to See. I was delighted to locate a copy at Goodwill in Franklin and look forward to getting it into your hands. Have you read it? It is an account of loss, love and the care of a Father who holds us together even when we are falling apart.
