Fall is just ahead and I can't wait! Long sleeve shirts, the smell of bonfires, enjoying a hot cup of tea, putting out the pumpkins and mums, seeing a scarecrow or two here and there, crockpots full of chilies and stews. . .it all just makes me giddy. And hopefully, as I sit here scratching the thousands of chiggers I got the other day out in the field, hopefully, they will all be gone. I don't know if they die off or fly away like the birds and I don't really care, just as long as they are gone.
The Bundle up Club from Oklahoma will arrive at my house 27 days from now with all their handmade blankets, scarves and caps for our homeless friends here in Kentucky. Remember, I have never met this family. They heard about my Blanket Ministry for the Homeless and they wanted to help.
Their goal was 100 each and they are just about there!
You can meet them here at their Bundle Up Face Book page. . .
That means winter will be just beyond the bend from Fall, a season that is not a favorite of mine, but it comes and so we prepare to help those who will not be able to get out of the cold. I am in awe of these two 13 year old twin sisters who spent their entire summer making and gathering for our homeless. They will be driving the 11+ hour drive here to deliver the warmth and love of Christ. If you're in the Bowling Green area, be sure to listen to our Christian Family Radio station who will be talking with this family on the air the week of October 12.
I'm off now to look up a recipe for pumpkin bread. I just don't think I can wait for the official Fall to arrive. But OH, OH, OH, right after I go look for that anti-itch cream. These bugger bites are driving me crazy!
