Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 2/4/2017

For those of you who didn't see it on our Simply Shoeboxes Facebook page, my grandmother who lives with us Contracted C.Diff last fall: last week Hospice came in, don't really have a timeline could be months, could be days if she gets another infection, just repeated infections have weakened her. As of now, she's home and we hope to keep her here until the end, if possible. Would appreciate prayers for grace, peace, strength, and wisdom for all involved.  Our pastor read James 1:27 at church this week " Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world." (NASB)  It was kinda cool and encouraging...Grandmother + shoeboxes is kind of widows and orphans!!

Anyhow, all that to say, we haven't been able to get out and shop much lately.  Being able to get stuff online for shoeboxes is nice at a time like this, helps distract one somewhat, and work toward the shoebox goal while still being there from Grandmother.   Things like working towards gift cards online. Or ordering things.  In this case, ordering free coloring books I knew about thanks to Clip with Purpose on Facebook!  They're 12 sheets/24 pages, so not real big, but a fun addition that can encourage the child toward nursing/helping others, or maybe make them more comfortable with medical professionals!

Spent from shoebox packing budget: $0

Spent from gift cards earned or won online: $0

Added to stockpile:
  • 25 Spanish coloring books
  • 10 English coloring books
Happy Packing!
