To Bless Them

Sheila needs clothing.

“What do you need?” I asked her.

“Everything!” She said. “Raymond needs some too, but he won’t ask. He’s grumpy cuz he needs hearing aids.”

Nadine and I were listening to her on the streets of Reading yesterday. She gratefully accepted the bags of food from the back of Nadine’s truck. I noted Sheila was about 5’7″ and very thin. I thought about how far Sheila and Raymond have come since they were homeless, living in a tent on the mountain. They now have an apartment and jobs. It’s hard for them to make the rent every month but their landlord is gracious as they scrape it together.

I am going through my closet. Anyone else have clothing to donate? Let me know.

Sheila is hungry to have relationship and to get to know God more.

“Kathi has a Bible study group,” Nadine told her. Her face lit up!

“Do you do it in here?” she asked.

“No, I live in Bernville, but I have it on zoom every week. Would you like to join us?” I asked.

“YES!” She beamed. It may simply be through her cell, but several of my group members join in that way. (If any of you would like to participate just email me.)

God will open doors for us that no one can shut. When He does that, walk through them.

“What is the use, my brethren, for anyone to profess to have faith if he has no (good) works (to show for it?) Can (such) faith save (his soul?) If a brother or sister is poorly clad and lacks food for each day, and one of you says to him, Good-bye! Keep (yourself) warm and well fed, without giving him the necessities for the body, what good does that do? So also faith, if it does not have works, (deeds and actions of obedience to back it up), by itself is destitute of power (inoperative, dead.)” James 2:14-17 AMP
