Zeph 3:17 The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.”
So often we get exited about the production numbers, that we overlook the treasure that is our environment. One of the best things about being here at Gleanings is the family friendly, heart-warming environment that has been nurtured and developed through the years. Once you get here, you feel like you are home. There is a feeling of connection, and welcoming, and you know that deep in your spirit you belong, and are loved. We often get comments that this feels like home, and somehow this is a preview – or taste – of what heaven will be like. Gleanings is a special place where all ages are a welcome part of our family, and there is a job for everyone.
We worked hard this week, in spite of not producing soup. Yes, the teams here outpaced our staff’s expectations of how much product would be dumped, and how fast they could do it. Thank you for all your hard work around here this week! Also, some of our Mission Builders friends who were here for the month of January have moved on, and we blessed them on their way, because we were blessed they were here. Our hearts are full, and words fall short, here are some pictures taken this week, that capture some of the many wonderful moments. Major photo credit to staff kid Katie Ragains – thanks Katie 🙂
