On Thursday's workshop we had a wonderful day. Lots of visitors. Ms Kathy Garrison stopped by and helped for a few hours. That sweet Ms Oneal stopped by and brought in some bags, blankets, wash cloths, and magazines she is so sweet she sews at home a drops off. Ms Marie Peterman brought in some magazines and pillows. Linda Peacock left a box of toiletry items for us.

Kenneth Micheal
Completed 29 bags ready to be delivered to local hospitals.

Don't for get the May 1st The Battle of Byron 9-4pm we will be there selling Boiled and roasted p-nuts all proceeds go the our ministry.

A little note: Saturday a local lady Ms Marcie Hinson called and said her heart was leading her to call and donate to this ministry I went over and had a had a wonderful visit. What a sweet lady she lost her husband to cancer in Feb. and is on a fixed income and still made a generous donation. God will surely bless all these new friends.

God sent me an angel today

What a blessed day. More call came in today from folks wanting to donate and wanting to come help sew. But around 11 or so I got a call from a nice lady that told me she had some material that she would like to donate. We set up a time and about 430 she arrived with her car loaded and I mean loaded. The picture speaks for it self. She even included the plastic containers. Her name is Ms Nancy Hill what a sweet lady she expressed she doesn't normally read the paper that close and some reason she did on the 14th. God is good. We had a nice visit she sits with patients and is down to one day a week. So if anyone knows someone that may be in the market for a sitter or maybe a light house keeper no heavy lifting let me know see if we can pass along the favor... She lives in WR so would like to work between Byron to Perry. She was a blessing to us lets pay her back with some jobs.

Macon Telegraph article


At last weeks workshop we completed 62 bags/ It was a great day me- Karla-Kenneth Micheal-and Glenda all helped. The Macon Telegraph stopped by to do a story on our group. It will come out in today's paper. On Tuesday the 13th I delivered the bags to the hospitals in Macon. Its amazing my car was loaded and after I went around to the folks in the waiting room it only left about a dozen extra for days to come so we need to sew sew sew. I spoke to the Coliseum hospital about maybe doing a workshop at the hospital and getting the employees involved. I can feel we are doing a great service for our community.

Love to all


spend your days passing it on!!!!!

The Passing of a friend

I'm sadden to write this blog. A friend Tim Dupree was killed in a car accident on Easter Sunday afternoon. Tim was a kind and gracious man. He did so much for our community, he will be truly missed. Some of you may not know this but he worked for the company that we get bags from as backup to our homemade ones. The first order that we got Mr Dupree would not let us pay for he stated that he believed in this ministry and wanted to purchase them for us. I was so touched by this.
I love you Mr Tim and you are truly missed!!
