Yucky yet blessed

Sorry I haven't been here in a few days, been fighting some sort of intestinal crud and having to fight even harder today.

But . . . we were able to give away the donated vehicle this afternoon and it was awesome!  The town marshal from the city of Pekin and another church member drove up and drove away in a vehicle that is going to bring sincere tears of joy to a family in their area who lost everything!

We are so grateful to the elderly gentleman who made this donation.  He insisted on remaining anonymous but the new owners are going to send him a thank you card and enclose a picture.  Something I know he will treasure!

Speaking of blessings --- this morning our small group Bible study threw an Easter party for one of our local nursing homes --- complete with John dressing up in the Easter bunny full costume!  The nursing home is a small one and operates with such an amazingly warm and caring staff.  They are so under funded that they don't even have paper plates or napkins!  The 27 residents all were thrilled and awestruck when they saw the bunny.  We made sure each one had their picture taken with the bunny and will get a copy to them.  We had cookies and specially made Easter baskets for each one.  It was a fun thing to do and we plan on "adopting" them and doing more projects in the future.

A day filled with blessings all around --- even with the yucky! 

Hope you all are preparing your hearts for this weekend of Good Friday and Easter!!!!! 

Until next time . . . blessings to you and yours!                              Susan and Monty
