Raking leaves

This afternoon, some of the kids from the youth group and I invaded the front yard of one of our widow’s homes from church, and well, it was intended to be a drive by raking. However, her neighbor told her we were there and well she found out.

I got to to talk to the women, and well our act of service intended to minister to her, she turned around and well ministered to us. I got to talk to her for a few minutes and she talked about her love for God just how wonderful His creation is. It was like she really knew the intimacy of the Lord. That kind of faith is contagious. From our short conversation it was obvious that she had been with Jesus. And she also talked about how she is so excited about getting to meet Jesus one day. She is a cancer survivor and knows first hand her own immortality. Her desire for a place with no pain, no tears and constant fellowship with Jesus did my heart some good this afternoon.
