Change Your Life
But there's also this, it's not too late -
"Come back to me and really mean it! Come fasting and weeping, sorry for your sins!"  Change your life, not just your clothes.  Come back to God, your God.
And here's why: God is kind and merciful.  He takes a deep breath, puts up with a lot, 
This most patient God, extravagant in love, always ready to cancel catastrophe.  Who knows?  Maybe he'll do it now, maybe he'll turn around and show pity. 
Maybe, when all's said and done, there'll be blessings full and robust for your God!

33 College Care Packages, 18 MAGIC EMU Care Packages, 12 Senior Surprises; and enough love tucked inside each box and bag to feed the hungriest of hearts.

To the mothers who dare to love others, Le'Shay Webb (the director of the MAGIC program at EMU) was reinvigorated by the outpouring of generosity for those with whom she works. We need to zoom with her because she is grandmother wisdom/God foundation inspiration.
 
For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.  ~ Ephesians 2:10

I want to grow.  I want to be better. You Grow. We all grow. We're made to grow. You either evolve or you disappear.  ~ Tupac Shakur

***Opportunities to Love During Black History Month
~ If you've gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care - then do me a favor:  Agree with each other, love each other, be deep spirited friends.  Don't push your way to the front; don't sweet talk your way to the top.  Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don't be obsessed with getting your own advantage.  Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand. 
~Philippians 2:3-4

Epilogue - As I sat in the parking lot of CFUMC late last fall, I called  Darryl Johnson, the new director of Mentor2Youth, and asked him to pray for the sale of a house about to hit the market. 
The house sold within one week to the first couple that walked through the door. With all of the paperwork now complete, 18K+ will soon be donated to M2Y. 
Realizing fully that money does not create justice, it affords mercy as we work toward a kingdom with level ground before the throne. 
 
 
 
And so the Middle School Bake-Off Contest begins.....
Stay tuned.
