A friend of mine called me to ask if I would give a devotional or a word of encouragement to a local Friday morning group. I told him, “No, I am just depleted. I am on empty.” He understood and did not press. We went on to talk of other things…but I felt the Lord […]

I decided to go down the baby aisle. Talk about high prices! Wow!
On Friday night I was with some young mothers and I asked about the price of diapers. They told me that at today’s baby showers the young moms ask for diapers. It made my heart sad. No longer were there lovely receiving blankets or silver rattles. No. Just the hard reality of diapers.
I guess I come from a different age.
While at the store I bought formula and diapers and put it in the barrel for the Food Bank. I challenge you to do the same. Each week buy some diapers or formula and donate it. It will make a difference.
