In the time of Jesus no one was worse off than the widow. She was the poorest of the poor and yet we see in this illustration from Mark 12, this one woman had a heart for the Lord and she put it into action with an attitude of sacrificial thanksgiving. She in her extreme poverty knew the most important way to show her love for the Lord was through this financial sacrifice. As we are approaching Thanksgiving I keep thinking about my sacrifice of Thanksgiving. What will I sacrifice to say thank you to the One who supplies all my (4 comments)

kelly willey: When are Kids too Old to Trick or Treat??? - 10/06/08 08:23 AM
My grandmother, Nan, used to say we were begging for candy. So that being in my brain I always tried to discourage my kids from trick or treating especially once they hit high school. But, alas, they just loved getting dressed up and "begging for candy". So, what do you think about this and when do you think kids are too old to trick or treat?

There was a voice mail today from a man that said he wanted information about my property at _______ he named an address. It was not my listing but I called him back on the number he left which I recognized as a cell phone. When I asked what information he wanted and how he came to call me about this house (since it was not in fact my listing) he said just general information bedroom and baths and such.
