Above is the Care Net program for the evening. There was one of these at each spot as a little thank you for coming to the banquet and sitting at our table. I just took an Almond Joy bar, wrapped the word Almond with a belly band, and added the sentiment 'It's a JOY to have you at the banquet!'. Everyone loved them and they were super easy to do! I started the tradition of guest gifts two years ago and then I was the only one who did it...now, there are several table of people who have little gifties for their guests. Very fun!
Above is what the entire table looked like ready for our guests to arrive. Well, minus the coffee and water. The dessert was yummy red velvet cupcakes from our Safeway Bakery.
It was truly a night of Celebrating Life With Laughter. Our pregnancy center is supported completely by donations from people in the community. We don't received any federal funding at all. Still, God is faithful and has blessed this ministry in our community. It is a privilege to get to volunteer there, to work with young women in need, and to speak the life affirming word of God to those who come into the center.
Thought of the day: Hold on. God knows what he is doing.
