God’s Work, Our Hands

This is going to be a crazy week for me (T-minus 9 days until I leave for the beach!), but to kick it off I spent my Sunday volunteering at a local animal shelter. For the third year in a row my church participated in God’s Work, Our Hands- the ELCA’s day of service.

We had a light lunch on Sunday and then some folks headed to a wilderness preserve while others spent time with residents at a local nursing home. My group of volunteers headed to the local humane society to walk some dogs and spread love to the kitties. *Links to adoptable animals*

Ended the day with some pumpkin ice cream from Milk & Honey!

Shelters break my heart and I always come home ready to open my own. (It’s a dream of mine!) I love the excitement that spreads across the face of a dog when he realizes you’ve chosen him to take outside. Or when a cat suddenly melts into the palm of your hand because you spent an extra 5 minutes giving her some love. Say a little prayer that all our furry friends find their forever-homes really soon! (Not pictures but super loveable: Sashie, Grace, Tinsel, & Cheif!)

What did you do this Sunday? Have I ever mentioned that Sunday is my favorite day of the week? I was so exhausted last night (and grateful to have my dogs home and safe) that I curled up with Lylee and passed out in my hoodie and jeans! Oops!

**This week I will posting a link to my donation page for Erica for our JDRF Walk this weekend. Any donation helps (and prayers for a cure are always appreciated, too)! Donate HERE!
