September is here and we have some pretty great things on the horizon.
- CHN has partnered with an organization called Cheerful Giving
- Matching Gift Campaign begins Oct. 1
- Our Network is growing with Inns and Private homes
Cheerful Giving is an organization that helps non-profits raise funds by collecting spare change donations. We’re sure you’ve seen this and probably have participated in donating change on everyday purchases with other organizations and now you have the opportunity to do so with the Christian Hospitality Network!
All you have to do is click the link below (which is already associated with CHN). Just sign up once and start making purchases. For example, on a purchase of $12.13, the remaining 87 cents would be donated. It’s the safest way to give and tracks your impact as you go and you can limit the amount of change you wish to donate every month.
I was tugged at the heart reading these words, particularly the phrase,
“just as my mother did”.
David was crying out to the Lord and in the midst mentions that he serves the Lord just as his mother did!
I want to be that mother, that parent, mentor, who follows the Lord and prays faithfully and who is remembered by my children, and others. What do I want them to remember? Not, ‘oh she prayed’, or ‘she went to church’, or ‘she helps people’ – those are all good. BUT I want my children, family, as well as others, to remember how the Lord is faithful and can be trusted with their lives, because He is good and He promises to be with us always.
I want my children to remember Him long after I’m gone and to trust in His goodness and teach the next generation. Because as the verses right above this one says, “But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. Turn to me and have mercy on me; show your strength in behalf of your servant.”
