Well, this was another lesson in Don't Limit God. I thankfully opened the LVPC (Lookout Valley Presbyterian Church) envelop when it came and had to close my eyes and blink a few times at the check...it was a little bit more than Mom had said. No, it was A LOT more! Just a few dollars shy of $1,500!!!! Wow! My little home church of 80-100 people in a blue collar community opened their hearts and pockets. This was likely sacrificial giving for some. I still can't believe how God can take us so far beyond what we even imagined IF it is for HIS glory. It was as if he said, "Come on. Think B..I..G..G..E..R if you are going to be MY hands and feet." ;)
Now one might think that an offering of this magnitude would've depleted charitable donations for the church. That's what you get for thinking small again. I received ANOTHER check a few weeks ago for around $450. Loaves and fishes...loaves and fishes...we will feed the masses with these loaves and fishes.
Thank you so much LVPC! Your donations are going to help so many. Thank you for once again teaching me about God's love as you have for these many (many) years! I love you!
