Today and Blessings

It may sound a little off the wall but our pastor has decided once a month we will have worship and then hit the streets in groups and bless people. Today was the first of such days and I'm not sure who got blessed more the folks we were doing nice things for, filling their washer or dryer at the laundrymat with quarters, erecting a basketballhoop, handing out groceries and having a huge cookout for folks that live in low-income housing, the folks that changed oil in single parent, elderly or low income folks cars, or the enormous other groups that did landscaping, cooked meals, handed out water, and helped folks load their groceries in their cars all in all my church had 200 plus of the total congregation out blessing people! That is such a show of God's love both to the folks who were blessed and the people around watching what one little church with a lot of faith in God can do to brighten someones day. It not only brightened those being blessed but those of us doing the blessing were overwhelmed by the love we could share from God our Father. It could not have been a better day for what we had done and to have such a great participation of young and old was just awesome it could only have been a God thing!
Blessings and Prayers to all of you,
