I was blessed today to step in for Brian. I don't know what it is with these sweet people but I always feel so comfortable around them. They are so appreciative and after I have served them I feel so ashamed to complain about anything. Kimbra and Connie showed up. Connie handled the clothing orders and Kimbra was the Barista and I took care of their other needs with this extremely well equipped truck. My daughter Rachael who is 18, donated some clothing and shoes for the women as well. Everyone I talk to about Shoulder the Cross wants to be a part in it. They are so moved how one person can touch so many lives. Brian has an amazing heart and I am so proud to do the little that I can to help. What I walked away from this morning was love from these folks, a more appreciative attitude and a softer heart. In the midst of my own personal issues, being with them made me walk away remembering why I am really here and who I am really living for. God always shows up in the midst of those in need and today was no exception. I felt his presence and his calmness and his love the entire time.
