Today I was able to help a good friend pack up her house as she is moving to a different house in a week. I helped her last weekend as well. It is a blessing to be able to help those in need. She told me today that the last time she moved, which was before I even met her, she asked some of her ‘so called friends’ to see if they could help her move, and they responded to her like she was a bother to them and they couldn’t take anytime out of their busy schedules to lend a hand. Only one person showed up to help, and she thought, 'wow, I didn’t know what I asked was such a big deal, but I guess it’s more than what they can handle'. At that point they stopped talking to her. I was saddened by this story but it made me even more blessed to help her and be there for her when she really doesn’t have anyone else! We got a lot accomplished, but still have to actually ‘move’ stuff to her new place. It will be fun. I was able to use my wonderful 4Runner to help, and it fills my heart with great pleasure to lend a hand. She thanked me by buying me a cup of coffee, (double tall Cappucino) YUMMMMM and some beautiful flowers! I came home overjoyed, not just by these wonderful joys she gave me, but by being able to be there when she really needs someone!
Thank you Father for this opprotunity to
give in the only way that I can right now!
