The last few days I have been busy at the Francican Poverty Program making up and then passing out the makings for Thanksgiving dinners for those in need. This year we had to scale back to 350 families as we just didn't get the donations we needed. Yesterday and today we passed out the groceries and turkeys to those in need. We also gave 150 filled baskets to 2 very poverty strickened churches in the inner city of Detroit. I feel very blessed to be a part of a team that does this work for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is very heart breaking to see what is happening here in Michigan with so many out of work and having to beg for the first time in their lives. So when you sit down to your Thanksgiving dinner, remember to say a prayer for those who are without a job, or a home, or anything to eat. Take a moment to thank the Lord for your many blessings. I know I will do that. Have a beautiful Thanksgiving.
I'll be back to card making come Friday.
