Mailbag and Makeover

It’s Saturday, and a holiday weekend. So I know that means blog readers will be challenged to spend much time perusing the posts. However, I will press on with a few items just in case someone stops by to say howdy. We do have some relief workers from Eva, Alabama here again. Wonderful folks who have come several times trying to help an elderly lady just down the street from the church get back into her home. It will not be long until volunteers begin pouring in again and the work will continue. Now for a few items of interest…

MAILBAG. We received several Christmas cards this year with sweet notes in them. We appreciated each one. I am not sure people send cards like they used to. We basically keep a list of those who sent cards and try to return the love each year, but we do not send a card to everyone we know.

We did receive an interesting envelope in the church mail recently. It had two A. G. Hobbs tracts in it. However there was no explanatory note, no return address, and no indication at all who sent it. I suppose I am to read the little blue booklets and gain some insight that is needed? I have no idea, and I have no respect for anonymous posts or letters.

We also received a three page letter from a family that has worked down here extensively. One of the children made the effort to tell about their family and why it meant so much for them to work down here. I was so moved by this letter and it’s contents. There was a request to ‘not announce it with trumpets’, so that’s all I can really say. I can say it was a big blessing to my heart, though.

 MAKEOVER. Several months ago I did a tongue-in-cheek jab at church marketing called “28 Days To a Total Church Makeover”. Dee Andrews has suggested that I run this again, as she thought it was great. So, for Dee, I’ll run it again.
