Today’s need — $3,500
1 JOHN 3:17 - “If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has not pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?” Praise belongs to God as every need in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 has been met. Thanks to everyone who has generously given over the years to change lives physically, financially, and spiritually. Each week I stand in awe of God as I witness God’s provision in our lives.
Today’s need concerns four circumstances. The first need is a mother in her late forties with one child. She is in the process of interviewing for a second job because her hours have been cut by her current employer. A second job will help her regain financial stability. However, she is concerned her utilities will be cut off while she waits for more income. We can provide utilities while this mother begins a second job.
A Coming Together at the Yard Sale

Cisco was a bouncy white poodle with deep brown eyes and a little black button nose. He came to live with Darnell when he was a tiny pup. Darnell cuddled him in her lap and fed him from a baby bottle. As he grew, he became a favorite child, sleeping in Darnell’s bed each night and traveling with her wherever she went.

Quiet Corner: A green place
“My mind went at once to my tulips, frozen into the black soil of the bed. My imagination burrowed in like a mole and saw, in the center of the frozen bulb, a green place — quick and alive and radiant, the force that survives every winter blast and flies up, in spite of itself, to green spring.”
