Day of Service

This last Saturday was our churches day of service. It may be more, but I know that the eastern region of the US is trying to do a huge day of service annually, where we get out in the community and do for others. We really want to work with other denominations and serve others. We're encouraged to do this any time, you don't need a specific day. Yet, it is nice to know that church members are all out there in their communities the same day trying to help others.

We worked with a Baptist church in the area and did a whole bunch of different things from going and visiting in an old folks home, to building ramps for those who need them for their homes, to doing lawn work and mulching for those that are a little older and have the desire, but not the strength to do so.

I am not trying to toot my own horn, Hey look at me. But, I am proud to live among such people that would do for others and not want something out of it. That is getting more rare these days. We can all say we're Christians, but are actions scream what our heart feels. I am thankful for all those that put their hard work in organizing it and for those that wanted to bring a little light of Christ to brighten up someones day.

I love my Savior and I hope that I can follow Him and be more mindful to serve others.
