Excitement Builds!

Pure Undemanding Love and Sacrifice and Uplifting are given to help others and in the meantime oh how each that give area so helped.   It is one of the events that just shines with Joy when I think of it each year and makes me cry tears of Joy as I think about. 

For physical hunger is real and along with the feeding of the body, there comes the feeding of soul, heart and mind that lasts long after the shared meal and blesses the giver and receiver.   In fact I shall venture to say for me the blessings are overwhelming to just share.   Carroll County Empty Bowls, I LOVE you in every way that I can and I Pray that tomorrow will exceed all other years and that the Funds generated tomorrow will continue to lift the lives of all – the giver and the receiver and that may we all learn that without love,  our acts are but meaningless, like clanging, out of tune cymbals. If you are unable to come, send a check, a donation, from your heart to other hearts.  Together we can make a difference.

Matthew 25: 40    The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’  NIV
