Jan, from Early Seekers, sent me this awesome note today:
God Morning Friends and Family
Thank you to all those who came this morning to help out at KP. We love and appreciate you so much. We seemed to have plenty of lunches for everyone today… I know many of us have been making extras so that no one goes without. Thank you ! We are very grateful to you all !l. Thank you guys for lugging all our bags of clothing onto the truck for us. And thank you to all who donated the beautiful clothing. Ginny and I go thru them all at church during the week and lable them with sz tags and then we pack them up in our zipper bags, and we take as many of the bags that will fit in our cars and we bring them to KP each week as well..The rest of the bags we leave in our clothing room at pt. The guys on the food truck are so gracious to take them out and lug the rest of them to KP for us, so thanks so much guys.! We love you !
When we first arrived today walking into the park with our stuff a few of the homeless came up to us and said good luck girls… they told us that many people were acting up in the park before we got there . We said a silent prayer, and we didn’t have any huge issues. Thank you Lord, and thank you that you are always there and watching over us and looking out for us and our safety .

Sharon has many pressures to meet deadlines ,and many responsibilities on her shoulders, also healing of spot on her lung.
Jan ( me ) I need prayer for myself. Today I was a little short with someone who very often gets demanding. I love my friends at kp with all my heart. I really am a huge advocate of the homeless and I am usually very understanding and loving and always standing up for them. anyone who truly knows me, knows that about me. They are truly dear to my heart, but sometimes when some of them get demanding and take advantage of that… It is sometimes” trying” to always respond with a Godly spirit as they are yelling , and today I was not as loving with my words. Although this man knows I love and care about him and he teases me every week because he knows me … but cons me into giving and giving to him, because he is a very close friend of my nephew , and many times gets more than his share…because he thinks I should always favor him. so today he was just getting so demanding and I kind of told him that.I feel bad because I want always to respond nicely and be pleasant and not let my attitude affect anyone wrongly. Please pray that I will always catch myself and respond with a soft and loving answer. I know this man was not offended ( he knows how much I love and care about him) so I am not worried about that,…. but I do want to be always loving and respectful to everyone in all situations. Feeling sad about it all …and need your prayers……. forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 3:13-14
