Saturday (December 1) we hosted an event for single moms at OBC.  The purpose of the day was to be an encouragement to moms and their children.  Mission accomplished!

There is something to be said about expressing God’s love through ordinary simple acts of generosity and hospitality.  Little things do make a big difference.  Jesus ate and drank with those who were lost from God.  An expression of full acceptance in the simplest of ways.  The love of God communicated . . . message received.

Highlights of the day for me:

Observing a disabled mom receive a manicure, kids huddled around tables making gingerbread houses, our home groups engaged in ministry together, exchange of phone numbers and emails among women.  Announcing that we want to come to their homes in the spring to help with home repair.
