Proverbs 28:27 He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack.

The cold weather has moved in and when it gets cold outside we might think of many things, a nice fire in the fireplace, vacations in the mountains, hot chocolate, football, Thanksgiving and Christmas. While all those things are wonderful to think about there is something that comes to my mind. That is people that may not have warm clothes or a warm home.  Years ago my cousin and I went together to pick angels from the angel tree.  The one I picked was a boy about 7 or 8. He didn't ask for toys but a jacket, just a jacket. He got a very nice warm jacket that year, with a couple of toys of course. 

There are people of all ages who may have a need for something as simple as a jacket or a coat.
I am so excited that this year at Awakening Life we will have a coat drive. You have always heard that it's better to give than receive. Well that is true. The year I picked this angel from the tree I wanted nothing for myself, but all for this little boy and others who need. It is a blessing to give!!!
If you would like to donate a new or gently used coat you can contact the church at 221-4664. We have donation boxes all over Curry and Jasper. The coats will be given to Grace Ministry on Sunday December 15. Also the night of our Christmas play at 6:00 pm. 

I hope everyone has a blessed day.

  1. Wow!!! Thanks Denise for spreading the word of Awakening Life's coat drive! Grace Ministries is a wonderful ministry and is also located in Curry! Every year when the first cold spurt hits I always am so thankful to God for a roof over my head but I always pray for the ones that don't :(
    Awakening Life Church is located at 8400 Curry Highway in Jasper Alabama :) We would welcome any gently used or new coats to give to Grace ministries. They will be presented to Mrs Patton on the night of our Christmas Play. For locations of the drop offs call the church 221-4664 ! Thank you in advance for your giving :) Pamela Britt Malone
