Friday after the storms Briarwood did a "Sandwich Drive" for survivors/workers and others effected by the storms! My friend Julie and I gathered our sandwich supplies Thursday and went to work Friday. I hate things like this because I'm not a leader...I'm a follower! I feel like I'm in the way without a clear task. So, it looked as though we were gonna make sandwiches! So we hop in a line close to the front and they said...we need to write the verse on these bags! I love to write and it would get me out of the hussle and bussle of the assembly line. So, I spoke up! Let me and Julie write! Not sure Julie was too happy about me volunteering her - but we had a great time!
We wrote Ps. 9:9 "The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble." on (I would say hundreds) a lot of bags! That was our job. Needless to say, we memorized it! I loved it! And then today I was reading Briarwood's weekly and I saw my bag in the hands of a victim or worker of the storms and my heart was so happy - I was hoping they would see the verse and not just the food.
Thank you Lord for allowing me to serve you in the midst of such a terrible tragedy. And thank you for allowing me to see the finished product! Your love and your words are the only ones that comfort! You are a GREAT God - please be so real to those affected by the storms! Shine YOUR light into the lives of those who lost everything! Be their everything!
I'm very happily married to Jason Dollar for 9 years now!! AMAZING! Time flies. I'm Noah, Anna, and Mary, and Isaac's Mom - Lovin' that too! I thank God for his MANY blessings for His provisions!! They are abundant!
