Proud of my town-feeding the kids-spring break!


     This has been something that has been on my heart for a long time.  So I was excited a  few years ago different ones started stepping up and doing things to help this problem.  The problem?  Lots of kids eat breakfast and lunch at school and for some that is all they eat so when no school, there is little to no food for some.

     

This week is spring break for the public school kids and the Salvation Army, United Way and Boys and Girls Club and many more that I don't know have stepped up to feed as many kids as they can. One thing they are doing is sack lunches for anyone who wants one but focus is on the kids.


If all goes well this week they will serve over 5000 sack lunches.  They contain a bottle of water, a sandwich, a pack of pb crackers, and a piece of fruit.

Not only are they feeding at the boys and girls club but they are driving around and finding neighborhoods with kids and any child can receive a free lunch.


I know several groups including our church have outreach programs to help in the summer time so I know these are not the only ones but I am just so proud to live in a town where we do have people who do stuff like this and are willing to volunteer to do it.  Proud to be from El Dorado, Arkansas.

Does your church or town have similar programs?  If not, maybe you could be the one to help plant the seed to grow one where you live,

God bless,
Pat

Happy 16th Birthday Stephen Austin Love!

From this little baby born on April 7, 1995 to the wonderful young man you have became April 7, 2011 Moma and Daddy were so blessed the day you were born and grow more blessed with each passing year.  I pray God will richly bless you this year.  Let Him be your guide and follow Him and do His will and you will be right where you need to be.  We love you! God bless, Moma & Daddy

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.  
God bless,
Pat


Does Anyone? And a giveaway!

Sometimes I wonder does anyone even read here.  I wonder if this blogs time has come and gone.  I sometimes think, well I will just write for me and use it like a diary of sorts.  I am just not sure what to do.  I really enjoy writing the blog but......
     I decided I am going to continue for at least the month of February and see what happens.  Since February is the month of love and my last name is "Love" and I am trying to decide if I love this blog anymore, I am going to to have a "Love" giveaway. All you have to do to be entered to have a chance to win is leave a comment on this post on my blog.  I will choose a winner from all the comments.


Until next time or until I choose a winner of the giveaway, Pat
