Every Saturday is a work day at Michael's and even though this was a holiday weekend one faithful volunteer came out to help -- John.
John has been involved quite a few Saturdays and usually Monty picks him up and gives him a ride. With Monty's finger still healing he decided it was best for him to not go and take the chance of further injury. That was fine with John - he drove himself and was such a big help to Michael - especially since he was the only volunteer!
Michael is always right there lending a helping hand and most of the time trying to get the job done himself but let's face it -- doing ceiling insulation from a wheelchair? And yet he had already found a way!
Michael also put a request out over the internet for the wire we will need to connect to the permanent power pole outside for the final electrical work. The wire normally retails for nearly $4.00 per foot. He received an answer from someone who has a brand new roll, more than enough for what we need, and is selling it for $1.00 per foot! Thank you Lord - for that miraculous answer to prayers!
In my morning Bible studies the other day I read this: "The basic motivation of life is that we please God more than people and thus serve people through God's love."
Each time someone volunteers to help Michael (or anyone else in need) they love God more than people and show that love by serving those people in need.
Think about that and take a quick look around you -- I guarantee you can show God's love in ways you never imagined. We just need to take our blinders off and really look . . .
Until next time . . . it's always the season to serve people through God's love! Susan and Monty
