After Sarah died I wrestled with God about how Sarah's death could be for my best. I could not fathom how burying my child could be a good thing at all! Sarah's life though short has caused God's glory to be shown. We are making a difference in the lives of the children we give Blessing Bags to each year.
Our goal this year is 1,200 bags. We want to do 600 of each type of bag. For Blessing Bags of snacks that is about 200 more bags than we did last year. For school supplies, that is abut 500 more than we did last year The awesome thing about lofty goals is that they give you something to work towards. If we do not get our goal, we try for it until we reach it and then we raise the bar again.
God is expanding our territory each year. Each year we go one street further or one project more than we did the year before.
God promises that he has plans for our best. Our job is to let the kids know God has a plan for them that is truly for their best.
