We had a great day with our friends in the park today. Because of the weather and all the snow, we did not have a big turn out, but still served about thirty people today. Thirty people who may have not had any place else to go for the holiday and each one of them so grateful for the hot meal. They were very grateful for you taking time out of your Christmas day to come down and be with them. Many whom live in their cars grabbed plates and headed back to the warmth of their cars, while others scattered through out the park. We even had a few of the Frisbee golfers come by for dessert and warm hot chocolate. Thank you to Dee for coming a long ways in this weather to bring us so many pies, so wish there were more people there to eat them all. We will be having pie for dessert next week. Many filled their pockets with the candy she brought and one of the guys took toys for his kids as well as some to take back to the kids at the shelter. Thanks to Heather at the Stinker station for making cookie bags for the folks and thanks to Pastor Laura and her group from Church for Now for all the wonderful gift bags, everyone was excited to receive them. I thank you all for making it a wonderful day for all who showed up and I thank you for making my Christmas special as well. I spend the holidays alone and getting to spend it with such wonderful people makes my heart jump with joy. Each and every heart in that park is touched by your generosity, kindness and love and that includes mine as well. You are truly a blessing. Merry Christmas to you all and I pray many blessings on your lives in the coming New Year.
