Pumpkin update and Small Blessings

Ok pumpkin is back!  Evidently many pumpkin fields flooded this year causing a smaller harvest.  But Walmart and HyVee have pumpkins and pumpkin puree in stock again and hopefully will throughout the season.  Just in case they run out, I stocked up!

Also I thought I should note that I've had a CRAZY week.  On top of having a ridiculous amount of work to do this week (I worked some on both of my days off) I had some sort of short-lived stomach flu Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.  I'm a children's pastor.  We have Wednesday evening program.  That was the first thing I said to Spencer after getting sick the first time.  So as I said my week was... crummy in part.

Then I got two phone calls that really turned my week around.  One was just a phone message from a former professor and beloved friend.  He just asked me to call him back sometime and let me know he'd been thinking of me and praying for me.  I don't know why that made such a difference, but it really did.

Then the same day a gal from another church in town phoned to let me know that her pastor had attended our Trunk-or-Treat event last year and had loved it.  The pastor had asked her to phone and find out how they could serve US during the event this year!  I couldn't believe it.  They offered money, volunteers, food, whatever we needed.

It just reminded me how simply things like a phone call to let me know I was being prayed for and a phone call from a church willing to serve made all the difference in my week.

  1. Wow, that's amazing about the helpful pastor! I'm surprised he didn't want his church to copy. But I'm pleasantly surprised!!
