The Reason for the Season

I recently joined an old and dear friend of mine for a gathering of
women in Christ. I have known Julie Fachner since 1989 and throughout
the years Julie has not changed in her commitment to God, her family, her friends
and helping others. Julie truly has a "Servant's Heart"

We began our evening with a lovely tea, hosted by Julie. 90 or so other women
also benefited from Julies hospitality. During our tea we were entertained
by to extremely talented violinists and later a gifted vocalist who sang "Mary did you know?" . My most favorite of Christmas songs.

The donation of the evening were hats, scarves, and gloves
to be distributed to families in need.

I was lucky enough to attend with four other
dear friends. Here are Debbie, Shelley and Peggy.

Here I am with Tammie and Julie. Julie's vision is to give as a group to people with need. Early next year the plan is to buy and fill backpacks for kids going back to school. This is a small thing to do but as Julie's heart grows who knows how many people will benefit. Thank you Julie for counting me as one of your friends.
