A different kind of Sunday

Yesterday we did something a little different.  Actually, about 700 of us did.  Instead of showering up and putting on our Sunday best we put on work gloves, dirty jeans and matching blue t-shirts and hit the community.  Church outside of the building.  Being the literal hands and feet of Jesus to those around us.  Cool, cool, cool!

While there were dozens of projects going on around town, our family chose something we could do together and that was a little near and dear to us — cleaning up the fishing spots and lake shore around Lake Grapevine at Murrell Park.  It is one of the kids FAVORITE spots to go hiking with Daddy and it was neat to go there and give back.  We marveled after the fact that we were all so busy picking up trash that no one looked up to see the lake!  We were focused, we were busy, and we had a ball!
