Journey Home

We have started a new book in Sunday school. The title of the book is 'PLAN A, and there's no plan B" by Dwight Robertson. We are just getting started, but it is a powerful book. It is a book filled with "chance encounters", God's little coincidences," "divine appointments". We all encounter these every day. But, at the end of the day "what difference did my life make?" Have I made a difference in any one's life? The discussion today gave me food for thought. The last time I ate in a restaurant....SOMEONE waited on my table. Black Friday when I was shopping....SOMEONE rang up my purchase. SOMEONE was standing in front and behind me me in line while I was shopping......SOMEONE answered the telephone when I called in my pizza. All chance encounters. We live in such a busy, self-centered time that we some times forget that those SOMEONES are people with the same problems we have. How much does it take to offer a word of encouragement to someone? In this day of emails and often do we actually take the time to sit down and write a personal word of encouragement to someone? To take the time to tell someone what a difference they have made in our life? We all want the same thing. To be accepted, to feel like we matter. We all appreciate a kind word. We all need validation that we are of importance. We all need to slow down and see people. Offer a kind word to that SOMEONE at the cash register, that person who is taking his/her 20Th order for the day. Is it really that hard to smile? Does it really take that much extra effort to encourage someone? Do you have "chance occurrences"?

Thank you to ALL that came to the sale! It was so great to see old friends and meet new ones! A special thank you to my daughter Sara, who took some time off of work to spend a couple days helping and a big, BIG thank you to my hubby Rich.....who not only puts a lot of sweat into building, repairing, painting and "gophering", he puts up with alot of stress issues from me! So, until the spring sale....ahhhh....maybe he can rest up! I just wanted to share a few evening pictures that I took.....everything is always so festive with twinkle lights and candles!!
