So far I have invited one couple to dinner that I would not normally invite. In fact, the couple really had issues with my husband and me. He would ingnore us and not respond when we said hello. Great time! The Bible says not only invite those that can repay but those who cant. The reward was in the lovely connecting time we had and being able to give something freely. The fellow pitched right in and helped with the cooking and his wife chatted quietly.
I have sent an email to a pastor in South Korea today to encourage him. I do not know him nor does he know me. I found his email above a devotional he wrote.
I have packed four shoe boxes for Samaritans Purse. I would pack at least one but this year I did one in honour of the grandchildren (although I have 5 grandchildren..two will have to share!) This year I simply went out and bought things without trying to get the cheapest items. This will be the only present some of the children receive in their lives.
As far as exercise today, I spent an hour out of doors pruning and raking leaves. It is a beautiful November day and I have two lovely Hummingbirds coming to the bird feeder. Rufus is just dazzling in his red and green coat.
