Fellowship Friday!!

Every time I type the title of this blog I can’t help but hear that annoying  “friday ” song in my head. Lol
Aaannnyyyy waaays! Hello again and happy friday! I pray you all had a wonderful week, filled with God’s loving surprises! Also that all of you and your families, have been kept safe if affected by post tropical storm Arthur. I am sure most of you are aware of the terrible storm that hit the east coast of North America. In Canada the provinces that got hit the hardest were New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. “In New Brunswick, 95,110 customers remained without power as of Sunday evening. Nova Scotia Power reported 192 outages that affected 80,060 customers,  while nearly 5,000 remained in the dark in Prince Edward Island.” Courtesy of ctv.ca. I am a fan of Jeeps so naturally I was drawn to  this story. 😉 Well not really but still, I do love my Jeeps! The storm made it nearly impossible for people to travel on the snow piled roads, there was a no travel advisory instated actually. This fellowship post starts with Jeeps, and the kind hearts of one club, I am sure most cities have Jeep clubs. If your not familiar with Jeep people here is a little insight. Typically they are about 4x4ing and if anything happens they all join in to help. They are very united and have huge hearts. Well, this local club took it upon themselves to help the staff of a local hospital get to work! Normally I would not condone people driving in such dangerous conditions. However I know from personal experience that Jeeps really thrive in such conditions, they are 4×4’s after all. When asked why they had done it, one of the men answered, ” It’s nice to help out in some small way to get our doctors and nurses where they need to be,” he said. “It really feels good at the end of the day.”. I didn’t even think about them (hospital staff that is) when I was praying for the people affected by the storm. Regardless what is going on, certain people have to brave the elements. They really have no choice!  Hospitals need doctors, nurses, surgeons. Custodians and phone staff even, people don’t stop being sick because of the weather. I often think about fire, police and ambulance responders in these terrible blizzards, well in any kind of natural disaster. Though the others not as much, of course I can only speak for myself. This club did though, and because of them these doctors and nurses have been getting to the hospital safely, a lot safer if they’d attempted the drive themselves. In any type of situation we should help those who can’t or shouldn’t be doing things themselves. Be a snow angel, shovel a widow, single mother or an elderly neighbors walk (as so gracefully said by my Bubby). Help someone who appears to be struggling to get across the street. Anything really! The opportunities are endless, and they are opportunities not chores. Anytime you can help someone it’s an opportunity. At the end of the day you’ll have done something for someone who otherwise my not have been able to do it on their own, or worse they may even get hurt trying. On this subject and many others I have written about, I try to practice what I preach. Just a quick and funny side story. I tried helping an elderly woman cross the street once, because it was crazy icy, and she got so upset with me because as she put it “she wasn’t feeble or weak” lol. Don’t let that  deter you, she was just someone who wanted to do it on her own :). Most all of the people I’ve helped over the years have been very grateful. My favorite way of doing it though, is shoveling a neighbors walk or mowing their lawn when they are out or otherwise occupied in their homes. That way when they see it, they are happy and grateful, but have no idea who had done it. Even for the nasty neighbors, you know the ones, we’ve all had them. Especially them, it shows them kindness they may not get on a regular basis! In light of all the crazy storms and snow a lot of us are getting, I ask and pray that all of you are exceptionally careful and safe this weekend! If you are on the east coast at all or have been hit by any kind of snow or bad weather, I pray that you are kept safe. If you don’t have to travel please don’t! With that have a fun, safe and God filled weekend! God bless each and everyone of you and your families! Also please pray for those affected by this ugly storm. You can see this story and many more stories of good news here.

Fellowship Friday!

This is such a beautiful story of giving! I think the snow froze all of my brains!!!! I was going to write a whole piece about this, but like I said frozen! I love finding stories like this! It is way to easy to find negative stories, but it’s when you can see God at work that can change your whole day, or even your life! It is actually hard to find stories of good news, it’s quite saddening really. They are out there though, you just have to dig a little. This is why I started this fellowship Friday blog! To bring the light of God through all of the darkness we see around us all the time. Find this story and many more right here.
Just a quick prayer update and request. My brother is doing okay I suppose he is really focusing on school and everything he is doing. He has an amazing support system of friends and is starting to really utilize his family more! This may be a tough week for him. He and his wife are separated and Monday is their wedding anniversary. Please pray that he holds onto his strength and stays focused on the tasks he has at hand right now. Thank you very much. God bless all of you and your families, have a safe and God filled weekend!

Pay it forward! I encourage all of you to find a way this week to do a random act of kindness! It doesn’t matter what you do, you don’t have to give anyone money or anything materialistic. Perhaps a simple smile or hello to someone you seems to need it! God bless you all!

I absolutely love this story!! It shows the love and compassion men still have for one another! These three men seen someone who was in need and did what needed to be done. While most people would ask questions they just did what they could! On a personal note with being stuck on crutches this past week or so I have encountered quite a few people who have been very kind, opening doors and such, they have been a true blessing! God bless all of you! Have a safe God filled weekend!
