I had the blessing of having lunch with two wonderful ladies today. These two elderly women have more energy and “spunk” that I think I will ever have! They are active in their faith, and look forward to daily giving to others.
Both widows and in their eighties, they call each other almost daily. Laughing, and cutting up with each other, they share days together serving others. They hand-make cards with scripture verses and deliver them to area hospitals where they are placed on patient food trays. Once a week, they also volunteer at an area women’s shelter.
A recent phone conversation with one of them led to a discussion about the God inspired events happening at Oak Street. Once I explained, there was no other option but to take them there so they could check it out!
On the way, we picked up toilet paper and coffee. Then, we picked up food donated by another lady at our church and took it all to the center. One of these two ladies also brought some MRE’s (pre-packaged food usually provided for military men and women). She had been praying that God would show her a place that could truly use them!
It was so wonderful to see these ladies truly grasp ahold of the vision shared with them by the center’s director. They are now so excited about the possibility of further support with this ministry.
God used His mighty hand to gently guide these two elderly women further into His service.
And just think….I was there to see it!
It’s been a great day!
