Making a difference in your every day life.

Making a difference in your every day life.

You gotta love a good old fashioned potluck.  You don’t see those as much anymore. 

Growing up I remember my Grandmother making casseroles and brownies just about every Sunday for a potluck dinner at church. 

That must have been why every Pyrex dish of hers and a label with her name on it.

Saw where this group of women is bringing the potluck back in style.  They are using it to make a difference. 

It’s called Dining for Women. http://diningforwomen.org/

Instead of spending a bunch of money on going out to eat, they get together for a potluck, and donate what money they would have give to the restaurant to charity.

They pick charities that helps women and girls…they say because they say out of all the  billion people that live in poverty around the world…7 out of 10 of them are women or girls.

The Favorite Child

You are God’s Favorite.

i have a friend who was praying for years to be able to conceive a child.  When she finally got the good news that she was expecting, she couldn’t wait to tell me.  What she said to me I found stunning.  

She said, “I feel like I’m God’s favorite.” 

She wasn’t angry that it took so long for God to answer her prayer.  She wasn’t upset that conceiving a child wasn’t easy for her, she felt like God’s favorite child. She had grown up knowing that believing in Jesus wasn’t about keeping a list of rules, it’s more like falling in love with someone who loves you back unconditionally. 

Today’s K-LOVE Encouraging Word reminds me of that.

“God’s thoughts towards you are countless, they outnumber the grains of sand.”  -Psalm 139:17-18

You are not the sum of your mistakes. You are His favorite.  

The hairs on your head are numbered (Luke 12:7)

He is enthralled with your beauty (Psalm 45:11)

He rejoices over you with singing.  (Zephaniah 3:17)
