"My friend and I were headed to Walmart after an evening of shoveling snow and ice after the last wintry mix in Roanoke, when she noticed a elderly lady trying to shovel her driveway. So we turned around, we talked a few minutes, I borrowed her shovel and went to work. She asked for it back in just a few minutes, turns out Ms. Charlotte has MS, she needed the shovel to help stand up. We left, went to the hardware store, bought a couple shovels, went back and shoveled her driveway. We didn't see Ms. Charlotte again, but I felt so blessed the rest of the day! I have the best friends ever!"

Let your kind shine through on this rainy and snowy day!
Here is a shining moment that one of our staff members shared yesterday during our staff meeting:
"One of our staff while at a local bank was asked if GPC ever gets any hymnals as donations. She was doing a nursing home ministry and they needed them for the patients to be able to sing along. The staff member said sure that they knew where some were and gathered about 20 hymnals and some Lifesavers candy that was in the warehouse for her to take. She said the residents would be thrilled to be able to sing along and they always loved to get candy!" Usually the only news you hear about is bad news.

"Recently, a friend told me about a coat she liked. I had gotten one similar so I took it to her and it fit perfectly! It wasn't the same color, but still a nice coat! I hope she will enjoy it. I love giving to people and am very thankful I am Blessed!"
"As I was getting off the interstate, there was a car stopped on the off ramp and a lady motioning people to go around. I ask if she needed help, she said her car had just quit. So I pulled over and put my blinkers on. She had already called someone to come help. I don't know the first thing about cars, so I just kept her company until her help arrived. "
Let your kind shine today!
"I like to get out and work in clearing snow. I live across from a doctors office. The doctor had tried to get the gentleman (who had agreed to do it ahead of time) to clear his parking lot. Due to unforeseen factors, he was not going to be able to do this. Upon hearing the circumstances, I took my snowblower (which was given to me) and after about 3 hours of fun, he was ready to see patients!”

"My friend had a procedure done on her back, so she can't bend or lift for a few days. I cleaned her bathroom, vacuumed her house, fixed her meals. I feel so blessed to get to help a friend! "
“A friend isn't able to weed their garden... Guess what I'm doing today? They will be so surprised when they get home from work.
What a blessing to be outside today. All the glory to God for putting it on my heart and giving me the ability to do this for someone!”
