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,

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.

Faith Over Fear! I Choose Faith!

I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time.  I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up.  I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God.  I am now choosing faith over fear.  Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.

     There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country.  They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God.  We have to choose faith over fear.

     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wan…
