Resurrection Weekend

One of the joys for us this past weekend was to go visit widows and widowers and express our appreciation for them by singing to them, praying over them and bringing some tasty banana bread and fresh Spring flowers to brighten their homes. I think we went home feeling more blessed than they did by the bright countenances and thankful hearts that welcomed us!

With an abundance of nearly 30 bananas in our kitchen and our main-banana eater on a liquid diet in order to recover from a hard sickness, it was pretty clear what would be the food of choice for us to make for others! God always provides the supplies we need to bless people.

James 1:27:

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

True gratitude is expressed when we give to others as God has given to us. The tremendous gift of Jesus living, dying and then rising back to life for a family such as ours is reason enough to bless others every day for the rest of our lives in order to be a testimony of the generous God we worship!
