All day Saturday we helped move a guy from church. He is a Hurricane Katrina survivor that has been living in a hotel room here in Maine for about three months. He was finally placed in a permanent apartment this week, but didn’t have much stuff having lost everything in the storm including his wife and young daughter. It took us all day to get him settled. Many people from our church rallied together and donated furniture, linens and gift cards to local grocery stores to get Casey and his little service dog Earl started again. I was really proud of Andy. He gave up his Saturday “the only day he gets to sleep in” and he helped Casey with his whole heart. He moved furniture, hooked up our old TV/DVD/VCR system, hung pictures and bought tons of groceries. Casey was very blessed and we were blessed through giving.

Sunday, Andy was busy playing Rover for Family Worship Sunday and I was busy getting ready for the baby shower that was scheduled after church. Both went off without a hitch.

I hurt my back this weekend, so I stayed home from work today to rest (as well as catch up on the laundry). We have another busy couple weeks ahead as Easter is on the horizon. It’s an exciting time to work for the Kingdom!
