HE GIVES US STRENGTH and oh so much more!!!

Yesterday was a L-O-N-G day, especially for Mickey. He went up to the church around 9 a.m. to help with sets, wiring, etc. for this weekends drama, CHOICES. He did come home for about an hour for lunch. I, and all the many others, arrived by 6 p.m. for practice and we did not get home until 11:30 p.m. We ran through the entire production twice.

By the time we got home I was too worked up to sleep!!!! Mickey is blessed to fall asleep the minute his head hits the pillow :o)

This morning it was up for our Bible study time and prayer, and to the church by 9 for The King's Kitchen. Fortunately, today being the 5th Tuesday in this month, Nancy, and her father, Bill, volunteered to do the cooking on this 5th week. They came in shortly after to prepare the meal with Sherry, Mickey & I assisting.

Kathy, who is part of one of the delivery teams and partners with Joi, was not able to be here today. I told her I'd be happy to step in and substitute for her. Oh, what a blessing that turned out to be for me today.

It was a further reminder, (as if I needed one!!!!!) that God always blesses us above and beyond what we hope or expect. I was just blessed, beyond measure, to get to participate in this side of the ministry of actually taking the meals into these 8 dear, wonderful shut-ins on this route. To see the smiles, hear the appreciations of thanks, and get to pray with them for their needs was a blessing I truly do not have words to express.

Thank you Lord for being not only a good and wonderful God, but giving us back so much more than we could ever give.

Please continue to pray with us for MANY souls to come to know Jesus as Lord & Savior during the 5 presentations of the CHOICES drama this Good-Friday Easter week-end.

You and Mickey are so busy! I know God will bless this production, just as He has been blessing the Kings Kitchen.

Susan, our prayers for this weekend are with you. Oh, to be a fly on the wall, or better yet, a joyful observer!!!

Thank you from us, though we are far away, for being the arms, legs and heart of the Lord in your wonderful community. We know you've done it as unto Him. Much love (and a foot soak, perhaps!).

It'll be a great weekend. Believing with you for many to learn the Truth about Jesus Christ and know just how much He loves them.
Take care and much strength to the two of you.

So many things are happening so fast!!! We are all like busy little ants doing what we have been called to do with not much time left.

Seems the men the world over can just put their head on the pillow and sleep while the wives lie going through all the activities in their head unable to sleep!

Wishing you a Happy Easter Susan.
