30 Days of Thankful: Day 27
I am thankful for all the blessings God has given me.
Today I went with a group of people from church to serve at the Rescue Mission's Great Thanksgiving Banquet. It is a free Thanksgiving meal for anyone who wants to come. It is largely homeless people who are there, but there are also some people who are not homeless but just down on their luck.
There were 165 of us volunteers there, and we served about 1000 people.
There were clothing giveaways, flu shots, free bibles, and lots of love and welcoming spirit. As the coordinator told us before starting, the people coming today are out guests.
And that's what it felt like.
I am grateful for every blessing in my life- both those given to me, and the opportunities to work for others. I am so blessed, that I couldn't even count them all.
Thank you God for your blessings, and for the opportunity to serve others.
