Janie's Christmas Cow

Well, this is just an epic piece of art sent by a close family buddy, Becca Hall. Doesn't that make you want to give lots of money for a cow for a needy family? A note Becca included said that she made the cow purple because that's what Janie would have done. And she is exactly right, isn't she?

(If you don't yet know what I'm referring to, click here, or, if you are on the blog's main page, just scroll down one post.)

To those of you who have sent in money for the cow (and for the yet-to-be-determined needy Rutland family), I'd like to send out a great big THANK YOU! It's been very encouraging to open your envelopes and I can't wait to pass it along. What a blessing to me.

We've given a deadline of
December 20th so the local family can get the money before Christmas...can you imagine their faces as they open an envelope full of cash? Wowie! The cow money will go out after Christmas...

I know folks say that the holidays will be very hard to get through, but I'd just like to encourage you and let you know that we are all doing fine so far. Thanks for praying for us. Our God is very good and is able to be ENOUGH for the Booth family.

I've kind of latched onto this verse for the last week:

"In peace I will lie down and sleep, 
for you alone, LORD, 
make me dwell in safety." Psalm 4:8
