It always amazes me the generous hearts of people. It's exciting to see each year just exactly how God will provide. He takes our efforts and multiplies them beyond what we can imagine! Our shoebox journey started this year at the Scrapbook Expo in St. Charles. It continued with the members of Delta Kappa Gamma (Rho Chapter). It furthered with 4-h for Joy and the Daughters of the American Revolution (Louis Joliet Chapter.) It lengthened with Scrapbook Junction. Through it all it's been traveled with me with many wonderful friends from Fiskateers (special thanks to lead Angela Daniels) and my church family at My Father's House of Prayer.
I lost track of the number of hours spent, items collected. Money donated (well Pam has an idea of that one.) I just know that all of it mixed together equals 259 smiling boys and girls this Christmas.
Whereas it's far from over. The part of the journey I'm involved in will be coming to a close once I deliver the boxes to the first relay station. Because of that I wanted to say...
To each and every THANK YOU so very very much from the bottom of my heart!
