After service we were off to the rehab and nursing homes and delivered out May day baskets. The ladies loved them and one sweet lady, Mrs. Capurso cried her eyes out. She was so happy to receive her basket. My children enjoyed passing them out and seeing the reactions. It is important as parents that we teach them to value the elderly, to minister to them. I love how the Duggar's teach the importance of ministering to others to their children. JOY-Jesus, others, yourself. In this very "me" centered culture it is a hard concept for many to grab a hold of!
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
James 1:27 ESV
For May Day we did a couple of other fun things , but you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see! Plus, the May Day giveaway will be tomorrow too-sorry , but yesterday was just a bit busy, in a good, good way though! I will leave you with a few pics.
Lydia with Eleanor and Suzanne in the back. Both ladies either have no living relatives or they are scattered throughout the US so very rarely have visitors, even on Christmas!
Mrs. Capurso with Lydia, Sophia, my son Sam and his friend Doug (in glasses).
Visiting with Auntie Madeline, or May as we call her. Not sure why Lydia felt the need to cross her eyes, but she did!
If you celebrated May Day let me know, would love to see how your day was spent :-)
