From Hut to Hut

I am currently on a Gospel Music Celebration Cruise with no internet but with an abundance of sun and sea! Today’s post is an excerpt from my book, Lighten up and Live! 90 Light-hearted Devotions to Brighten Your Day

A man was stranded on a deserted Pacific island for years. One day, a boat sailed into view. The man frantically waved and drew the skipper’s attention. The boat anchored near the island and the sailor got out and greeted the marooned man.

Will You Help Me Change a Life?

A Once in a Lifetime Life-Changing Opportunity

                              Kialee and Grandpa

This is my 17 year old granddaughter, Kialee. She has a once in a lifetime opportunity that will change her life forever and I feel privileged to ask you, my friends, to help make this possible.

Kialee is praying for the funds to join her youth group on a mission trip to South Africa. Diane and I have contributed a significant amount to help her because our own experiences on these trips changed our lives.

We would love to see her faith strengthened by seeing God use you to help answer her prayers.  

Thank you ahead of time for your generous response. This is the first request like this I have made.

Don’t be frightened. I know that you know I have four other grandchildren, but you can relax. These bread-snappers are spaced years apart so further appeals will be far in the future.

Have you had the opportunity for a trip like this?

How did it change your life?

Raising Hands

Let’s see, what day is this?  Oh yeah, its Lighten Up Monday!  Tim Hawkins needs to be put away, but when they come to get him I want to go with him. Well, at least I would like the address so that I could visit him occasionally. Enjoy watching this talented young man point out what we see, but never know how to say.
