How is YOUR 30 Days of Thanksgiving going? We started 8 days ago with 15 participants. How have those first 120 notes gone? WOW! Think about that! One hundred and TWENTY grace-filled, Christ-motivated, thankfulness-acknowledging notes out in the world! Praise God!
My first week was a little rough - a day or two skipped and two sent the next day. I scheduled some for my church family on Sunday and Wednesday but then they were not there or we missed midweek service - that kind of thing.
I sent three online, two by mail, and three hand-delivered. One was to a new friend in my MOMS Club who has just made my experience there so much more fun and so much more rich. She's also the one who got us hooked up with FPU! I think I surprised her but she seemed glad.
The other one that really pulled on my heart was the one I sent to a friend home on furlough after four years serving as a missionary in Papua New Guinea. I started to send her an email and it just all flowed out of me:
"...and, I wanted to say thank you. Thank you for the sacrifices you make. Thank you for all the travel you are willing to undertake. Thank you for being obedient to God. Thank you for using your talents and blessings to glorify Him and bring Him to the world. Thank you for sticking with all the training, classes, commitments, etc. that drive a ministry such as yours. Thanks for being such a great example of a godly mom. And, thanks for sharing all your adventures with me. I am truly, truly blessed for our paths having crossed at LBT 8 years ago. What you have done and what you have accomplished is so amazing and a testimony to God working in your life and that of Danny's. I can imagine the road gets tough but you two (or should I say you four) just keep plugging along...running the race! I'm confident that God is smiling down over you.
Hope you are having a wonderful week! Hug those babies for me!"
Even reading it now, it doesn't seem like enough. She's such a "hero" to me - a hero of faith.
So, that was my week with 30DOT. How did YOURS go?
