Wilma

     Every Monday morning I work in the clothing room at our church. Many of the consignment shops in town and Walmart send us the clothes they do not want any more. We take those clothes and neatly arrange them for a public give away every other Wednesday. We usually have around 100 people come through our doors and we are able to share with some of them our faith.
     I have enjoyed this ministry because of the women that I spend time with each Monday. We all come from different walks of life and different stages of life. One of the ladies that has intrigued me is Wilma.  She is in her nineties and still very active.  She walks to the church every Monday from her home two blocks away.
     This morning I asked Wilma if she wanted a ride home. She informed me that she had her horse and did not know if he wanted a ride. (You see her horse is her walker.)  I let her know that her horse was welcome to come. She finally said yes and we were off, horse and all.  As I drove we chatted and there were times when Wilma wanted to say something but the words just wouldn't come. I said ,"Don't worry we all get our tongues tied sometimes". She said ,"I know but I don't like it."
     Wilma has been a great motivator to me. Working in church work I have so many people tell me that the have "Done their time " that it hurts my heart.  Then I see people like Wilma who will never stop until Jesus comes. I hope I am a Wilma.
     What has God asked you to do this past week and you have said, "Let someone else do that I have served my time." (Just think you don't even have a horse to mess with) Lets be faithful to answer what ever call He has for us.

"My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work."
John 4:34

What work does He have for you to do?
