Thanks Covington News!

Just wanted to share this video about Camp Sunshine, Camp Twin Lakes & our friend Jessika for anyone that may have missed it. We would love someday to have some of the handicapped features you see in this video available to our children and others that could benefit from it at Chimney Park. This is awesome! Thanks to the Covington News!

Isn't it funny how certain things stir up feelings & memories. This morning I received an email from a precious friend asking us if she could bring us Henderson's for supper. Well this hit me in the form of a warm rush of peace that came over me. Silly I know but Henderson's is such a comfort for me. It holds so many precious memories for me. My daddy, mama & I went there every Friday night to eat catfish. Mike, Mary Elizabeth, Michala, Marlee Anne & I went there every Sunday after church. Funny how life changes but some memories we hold on to forever. So as I am struggling with my ankle pain & this "taking it easy" idea along with Abe's seizures & Michala's most recent issues, this was peace to me.

As I thought of it more I realized how God was using this friend in such a huge way. A meal yes, but love & friendship that goes above & beyond because she is taking time from her busy schedule & doing this for us.

It made me stop to think of who I could minister to today. Maybe with a phone call, text, email or letter. It's so easy for me to get wrapped up in me & mine that I miss the opportunities God places in front of me. I am trying to remember I may be the only sign of Jesus that one person ever sees. Saying I am a Christian doesn't do any good if others can't see it through my actions.

Never underestimate the influence you have on another persons life.

As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 1 Peter 4:10

Brag moment!

This week Marlee Anne went to Creative Kids Camp at Oxford College. She learned songs, did crafts & made new friends. My proudest moment was just now when she told me a specific counselor of her's was a Christian. I asked her how she knew that. She said she asked her. Be bold & let Jesus shine is a prayer of ours each day. So thankful she was bold & let Jesus shine.

Thanks for letting me brag!!!
