There are benefits to living in a small community,
a place where everybody knows your name.
The First Love Kids
took a trip today
so we only fed a few.
We prepared enough soup
and sandwiches for 150 people.
There was so much going on that we
fed only about 15-20.
This is Grady.
Grady used to work for my dad.
Daddy would give him work when he needed to eat.
I was very happy that he stopped by.
These were a couple of the guys who stopped
to shoot some hoops in the gym
and grab a bite.
Today was "Bless the City" day
for the town that is only 3 miles down the road from us.
It's the small railroad town where I grew up.
All of the churches came together
to reach out to the community.
The park was full of children
with blow-up slides,
lots of food and games.
Food for EVERYONE!
No need for soup!
Relay for Life had several events going on.
One of our local girls was getting sponsors
as a participant in
the Augusta Dancing With the Stars
to benefit Alzheimer's Association.
There was a youth fundraiser today,
a benefit food event for a needy family,
and a local auction/estate sale.
The town was busy with activity.
Maybe next time our soup kitchen will serve more.
We sure do want to be a light to the community.
"When you do it unto the least of these, my brothers,
you do it unto me."
May we always be the hands and feet of Jesus.
