You can bet there was a lot of praying going for the sun to shine on us and it did! In fact the temps went up to high 70's. It was a great day.
Every Year for many years now, the members of the church gather stuff. We clean out our attics, garages, cellars and even ask other to donate to our Give-A-Way Day. It takes us a month to gather it all up and fill a huge trailer. Look at the huge TV that someone just wanted to give away!!
Then we set it all out, invite the neighboornood and give it all away!! Many men show up with their trucks and offer to pile the big stuff into the trucks and deliver it to the homes of people who want it.
I was in the toy section and helped many finds toys for the little ones in their care. Once the croud thinned out a bit, I went and got the "kids" They visited, did their "Therapy" bit of letting others pet them and even August surprised us with how calm he became! I do believe that he will one day make a really cool, albeit small, Therapy Dog.
Friday Night, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning were also part of a Gospel Meeting. "Your Place in His Story" was the theme. The speaker was Shawn Daggett, the son of the man who started Give-A-Way Day many years ago. It was right to have Shawn here and it was a great weekend. The colder temps are back and there is rain in the forcast again this week, but WOW what a great weekend we had.
