Mothers’ May – 5/3/16

Happy Mothers’ May, friends!  Today we celebrate Stacy’s mom. Stacy is a blogger, mom, and perpetual camper! That’s right. I said perpetual camper.  She and her family chronicle their camping adventures  here: The Perpetual Campers. Check out her site, and read her vignette in celebration of her mom.

My mother taught me to give. Do you remember those green stamps they would give out at the grocery store? Well, my mom would collect them in the little books that they gave out. She would save them all year long. When December came around, she would take all of those books over to the store where you redeemed them and would turn them in for toys. She always worked with Dept of Children Services to “adopt” one family and would give all of those toys to the children in that family. She wanted to give to children when she knew the parents did not have the means to do so. Her heart taught me to give and not look down on others who may not have the same advantages in life!

I started this blog as a means of chronicling my journey of Servant Leadership, but I believe that it has taken on a deeper purpose. As visitors read about my every day experiences as seen through a spiritual lens, I know that they’ll take the meat of my messages — the scriptures — and nourish themselves. I’m sure they’ll remember the stories and get to know me as a result, but the anecdotes are merely the vessels that store the meat. My hope is that you find encouragement here, and when you do, please share it with me. Encouragers need encouragement too.
