"Give liberally and be ungrudging when you do so, for on this account the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you undertake." Dt 15: 10
This is strictly speaking not a random verse because it is one that appears in the e-mail newsletter that I received today from Operation Christmas Child of Northwest Louisiana. We are three months away from collection week, November 18-25. That means that we need to start focusing on collecting our items and planning our packing parties. I am thinking that our first packing party should be in mid-October. I'll finalize that date and announce it in the coming week. I am also thinking about ways to use Halloween as a way to collect and pack shoe boxes. Anyone with ideas about that should let me know.
