serve day 2014.

I'm finally getting an opportunity to sit down and write about Serve Day. This week has been a wreck! I told you our air conditioner broke. That actually occurred in the overnight hours prior to our Serve Day project.

Also that night, Hawk had his very first incident of night terrors, a fun (sarcasm...) little sleep disturbance that Seth also suffered between one and three years of age. Fortunately, big brother grew out of it, and hopefully the little one will, too. I truly think all the forces of hell were trying to keep me from showing up and serving! My friends, it didn't work.
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. (Philippians 2:3-4)
Serve Day is an annual outreach day organized by the Church of the Highlands. Everyone in the church is encouraged to participate. Serve Day has been a part of Highlands culture since the church was founded in 2001, and has grown with the church so that more than 13,000 service projects were registered across the state of Alabama this year! Take two minutes and press play on this video:


The group I participated with decided to help out Ms. A, a schoolteacher who just had knee replacement surgery four weeks ago. She hasn't been able to clean her house for a while, so we arrived bearing an assortment of household chemicals and willing hearts. I captured the day with my phone's camera:
