Last year, our family chose to spend our Thanksgiving at our church, delivering meals to those who would otherwise do without.  It was, by far, one of the very best holiday experiences we've ever had. 

This year, I was blessed to lead the amazing group of volunteers who run like a well-oiled  machine.  At our busiest, it was a beautiful display of organized chaos. 

The hands and feet of thanks for the ability to serve.
God is so good.  And we are so blessed.

They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.
Psalm 145:7
So, what's it take to deliver 315 meals to the community...
Plus serve a complete banquet to the volunteers and families afterwards?
400 lbs of turkey
40 bags of stuffing
1000 ounces of corn & green beans
600 cookies
a small fort of cardboard boxes
20+ drivers
at least 200 miles of routes
dozens of tables, hundreds of chairs
enough volunteers to fill the space of our sanctuary in a giant circle
and an endless supply of smiles, passion, service and Christian love!
Even with all that, I am certain I'm leaving quite a bit out.
God filled in all the gaps.
Seeing this event beginning to end was such an awesome sight. 
Thankful, beyond words, to serve alongside these willing servants.

Wishing you a JOYous and blessed Thanksgiving!
