My First Entry

Hi, welcome to my blog! Am excited you are taking time out of your very busy schedule to read this. I attend two churches - a small rural church at 9:00 AM my ancestors helped build when they migrated to this country from Ireland during the great potato famine and a large contemporary church with a church band at 11:00 AM. My large church visited a homeless center in Plattsburgh this past Wednesday. I was unable to go due to work but I bought two large bags of hats, mittens, scarves to be distributed to the people; I also bought one really warm red jacket that seem to speak to me - I couldn't walk by and not buy it. God had an indiviual that needed that coat.
Through this church, I also filled three Christmas boxes in honor of my sons, Matt and Luke, and new daughter-in-law, Nicky to donate to Samaritan's Purse. These will be distributed overseas to children to help make their Christmas merrier.
My younger son, Luke, has a friend he attended Avon Old Farms School in CT with who dropped out of college and enlisted. I sent him, with Luke's help, a care package to Afghanistan. He wrote to Luke and thanked him profusely. He said he couldn't believe it when he saw the package on his bed because he doesn't get much mail. We are going to send him another one so he receives it in time for Christmas.


  1. Mary Sue, God bless you and your family. I think it helps a lot for people to see ways they too can help others around them. We all are called to be Christ to others, right? And these are fine examples of practical ways to do that. I will keep these people in my prayers, and I'm looking forward to more posts!

  2. Dear Mary Sue…I love your new site and blog! They look fabulous. Congratulations on both. And thank you for your inspirations on helping others. Your examples of Christ working through you will help others to do the same. I look forward to the fellowship here, too.

    Love and prayers!

  3. Vannetta and Carolyn,
    Thank you both for taking time out of your busy days to visit my blog! And also thank you for your kind words. May God continue to bless each of you and your families!
