today's blessings

Someone called the church for help today.

Not the kind of help usually asked for, either.

This person didn't need financial help.

Not the kind of spiritual help usually sought here, either.

This person wanted literature help.

This individual wanted information on how church literature that would help his church grow.
Not so much to grow in numbers, but in knowledge of the Lord.  Something that helped them dig into the scriptures, that helped open up God's Word.

This person impressed me.  This person "gets" what Sunday School is designed to accomplish.  It's a discipleship thing.  It's to deepen a  person's relationship with the Lord.  This person loves his    church:  not the building, but the people.  And not just the people who think the way he thinks:  all the people of every age and mind-set.  He doesn't want to do anything that will hurt their fellowship, but he longs for them to all grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

I pray his church understands how blessed they are to have this gentleman in the congregation.

Oh, I almost forgot the other blessing of the day!!

My eldest daughter graciously agreed to take her younger sister to the high school this evening for band pictures.  That may not sound like much to you, but to me, today, it is HUGE.  I have had somewhere to go every night for the past 4 nights in a row.  When I heard that Em had to be back at school at 6:15 this evening, I almost cried.  But, once again, I have been rescued by my eldest.  Thank you, Dear.
